Essential Ibiza Company Info

Since 2010 Essential Ibiza has been providing unmatched news and reviews of everything Ibiza has to offer. From the most extravagant clubbing experiences to the most intimate hidden natural gems, we bring you closer to the true spirit of Ibiza than any other website.

Essential Ibiza was born out of a collective love for the Island we call home. We are legendary Ibiza characters but most of all we are Ibiza lovers. Our mission statement is to bring you closer to this wonderful island and the people who make it tick. We were the first digital publication to bring a dedicated in-house team of journalists and photographers to the island, setting the standard for online event and news coverage.

In addition to the website our Essential Ibiza Magazine brings you exclusive news, interviews, and videos from Ibiza and the entertainers who perform here.

We hope you enjoy our website and would welcome your feedback. Please email any questions or suggestions to

Business Development:

Charlie Chester (Ibiza) -
After bringing 100 clubbers, 20 DJs and a Channel 4 film crew to Ibiza in 1990 Charlie sealed Ibiza's fate as the world's #1 dance music location, and the resulting film “A Short Film About Chilling” went on to become the most successful youth culture film in Channel 4 history. A legendary Ibiza promoter counting Mad on Mondays (which became Manumission), and Circo Loco at DC10 as past achievements, Charlie knows Ibiza inside-out.
