Ibiza is often known as the party island, but it seems as though there is so much more to this destination than meets the eye. For decades, soul searchers and spiritualists alike have descended on the White Isle to find peace and enjoy the delights of the natural world. Because of this, many incredible hotels and communities have made their mark, and the Sabina Ibiza is certainly one of them.
A Beautiful Island
If you have never been to Ibiza, you just need to look at pictures of this island to know that it’s naturally beautiful. With white sandy beaches and coves and incredible ocean views around the whole island, it’s no wonder that people travel to Ibiza to get away from everyday life. If you want to embrace your own self and the beauty of the world, then the Sabina Ibiza eco-community is everything you could possibly want and more.
Creating Something Special
This community was first created by Anton Biltong – and his 19-strong team of architects – after he was inspired by the beauty and the peacefulness of the Lost City of Petra. He wanted to create something similar on the island of Ibiza, and he wanted to offer luxury accommodation and living but with a spiritual twist. Now, this private and exclusive community is filled with 50 private villas that are surrounded by 17-hectares of stunning countryside.
Private And Discreet
The community itself prides itself on being private and discreet, to offer people the chance to fully step away from their old life and connect with themselves and the natural world. Crystals were embedded into the foundations of this community, it houses a temple for people to think and unwind and a clubhouse for guests to mingle if they feel like it. As if that wasn’t enough, it boasts water preservation techniques, as well as an ‘Excellent’ pre-qualification for BREEAM.
Doesn’t this place look absolutely stunning?
The fun of exploring the uncharted waters is unmatched. Even if you are not exploring some mysterious hidden location – just the thrill of being out in the open on your own is enough to get your adrenaline pumping. One of the most popular ways people are heading out in waters is with an inflatable paddleboard. Like the name suggests – stand-up paddleboards look much like surfboards. You stand on top of them and use a canoe paddle to propel yourself ahead. Despite the name – you can even sit or kneel down on them.
Inflatable Paddleboards Are Safe and Sturdy
It might blow your mind to know that Inflatable paddleboards really work. Unlike inflatable kayaks – which are cheap and flimsy, inflatable paddleboards are just as sturdy as the regular ones. And while it costed a fortune once upon a time – prices since then have come down. You can now get the inflatable paddleboards along with the pump for as low as $200.
Here’s the Catch
What makes inflatable paddleboards as sturdy as the regular ones, unlike inflatable kayaks, is that they are inflated at a higher pressure. When it comes to pumping kayaks – it’s good to go as soon as the touch feels firm. Pumping kayak is just a few minutes’ works with the hand up – so easy even a 5-year-old can do it. But when it comes to inflating paddleboards – the process is a bit more complicated. Firstly, it comes with a pressure gauge. You need to to a minimum of 10 PSI, with a warning not to go above 15 – the numbers may vary from one brand to another. The paddleboard starts filling firm around 0.5 PSL. So if you look at it – paddleboards need 20 times as much air as a kayak. Basically, trying to fill the paddle with your hands can be exhausting, and it’s probably the reason why you need an electric pump for your paddleboard.
