    How I found Ibiza...
    I\'ve known Ibiza since I was little, since I was 5 years old. My uncle Ángel has always loved Ibiza and he introduced me to the island. I don\'t know anyone who visits and doesn\'t fall in love with Ibiza.

    Some of its myriad facets...
    The sea, nature and the wildlife. The truth is that the best known image of Ibiza to outsiders is all about discos, clubs, parties... and sometimes that makes me cross. Ibiza isn\'t just about partying, there\'s much more, it has a special sense of calm.

    A luxury on the island...
    Everything... the people, how close it is to mainland Spain, the beaches...

    My favourite moment...
    The sunsets. Ibiza is like nowhere else in the world, the sunsets are extraordinary, it\'s amazing to watch them from the north of the island.

    A memory when I\'m far away...
    The climate, the beaches and the food. A lot of people don\'t know how good the food is on Ibiza.

    The magic of Ibiza...
    You can feel Ibiza\'s magic as soon as you step off the plane. You feel that special sense of calm. I wouldn\'t change that feeling for anything: the weather, the humidity, the sea air, the energy of the people, everyone\'s happy, content, on Ibiza nobody\'s angry.

    What I tell my friends...
    I\'d recommend visitors discover Ibiza during the day: beaches, markets, the cuisine, the villages in the interior... The coves on the northern coast, Las Dalias, the restaurants in the centre of the island..., if they go to these places I know they won\'t want to leave.
