A day bed is the ultimate in beachside indulgence. They’re 100% totally unnecessary and I’ve had some of my best sunny snoozes lying on a beach towel in the sand, but sometimes you just need to throw money at a situation for all out luxury.
But first, acaí bowls. Putting into practice the advice from the Amazonia guys at Sluiz (day 7’s Sunday fun day post), we set about making our own in the apartment in Santa Gertrudis. The very non-glamourous behind the scenes stuff taking place on my Snapchat as always. Not bad for a first attempt I reckon, ten seconds later it was a melted mess but damn that stuff tastes good.
After brekkie and a bit of work, it was time to hit the beach. I’d been to Harbour Club in the evening for sunset drinks and dinner and really wanted to go back during the day to hire a day bed and chill the fuck out.
A day bed is €75 for the day in high season with chilled water and fresh fruit included, but it was quiet when we visited so they gave it to us for €45 for the day bed alone. The waiters come around for food and drinks orders, so you never need to get up and they even set up a little table complete with white linen, it’s proper posh. We had the burger, chicken caesar salad, chips, coffees, a couple of glasses of wine and a few bottles of water and the bill came to around €70 each between two including the day bed. You can totally fit up to four people on one of these comfortably, though – they’re massive!
If you stay long enough and get peckish again, switch into something smarter (read about my capsule summer wardrobe and this white shirt here) and stay for dinner. I’ve written a full review of the evening menu on essentialibiza.com
