Despite its reputation for hosting some of the world’s most decadent and hedonistic parties, the White Isle has also long attracted those who are favouring a more holistic lifestyle. And while there are many alternative therapists, spiritual teachers and wellness experts who are permanently based on the island, the number of holidaymakers who are seeking out healthy options is ever increasing too.

As a result, Ibiza’s offering of superfood suppliers, dedicated health food shops and vegetarian/vegan restaurants has grown considerably over the years, giving residents and visitors to the island alike access to a wealth of nutritional goodness. Here, we round up the names you need to know if you’re looking to eat ‘green and clean’ in Ibiza.

Raw, Amazonia Skincare

Amazonia EU

Now entering their third year on the White Isle, the Amazonia EU team caused a splash by bringing certified organic acai, a Brazilian super berry packed with antioxidants, to Ibiza. With their frozen packs of acai pulp in hot demand, they have since expanded their product range to include protein powders and nutritional supplements, all of which are gaining rave reviews. The passionate team can deliver straight to your home – and even give you a demonstration on how to whip up the perfect acai breakfast bowl – or you can find their products in selected health food shops and several of the island’s most popular hotels and restaurants.

You can also buy ‘on-the-go’ snacks such as energy balls, or stock up your own larder with health food supplies from their selection of products.
