With a golden haze descending on the chic area of Marina Botafoch and the sky turning soft shades of pastel pink, it was an early summer’s eve perfect for welcoming back one of the island’s most elegant yacht harbour restaurants and bars, the stylish Blue Marlin Ibiza Marina. And so it was unsurprising that every table and the spacious lounge areas on the wooden-decked terrace were filled with the island’s most fashionable faces, eager to welcome back the trendy haunt.

Whether they had chosen to feast on the delicious cuisine menu or simply toast the occasion with a crisp glass of champagne or an expertly mixed cocktail, couples, groups of friends and music lovers alike were soaking up the inimitable atmosphere as they chatted and mingled in front of a backdrop of sleek yachts and Ibiza Town’s historic silhouette.

Colourful platters of canapés and fresh sushi bites came drifting past us, with gourmet guests who had opted for the Grand Opening menu feasting on treats such as Wagyu ‘tiradito’ with maca and ponzu emulsion, salmon nigiri causa with sea urchin mayonnaise, Beef tenderloin with spicy miso barbecue, glazed sea bass with yuzu and purple carrots, and exotic fruit ceviche with lychee sorbet.

With Blue Marlin Ibiza veteran Oscar Akagy in charge of the music and Ibiza Global Radio broadcasting from the event, the beats remained expertly delivered by a host of turntable talent that knew just how to set the scene sonically for a vibrant opening extravaganza. Beginning on an infectious and energetic house music tip, the sound of the night became deeper and sultrier as the evening progressed, with the fashionistas and jetsetters of Ibiza mingling underneath the new moon. With the venue illuminated by a neon glow, laughter ringing into the air and diners finishing their exquisite meals, Blue Marlin Ibiza Marina once again showed its prowess as a glamorous, cosmopolitan and premium day-to-night concept and the place to be seen in Marina Botafoch.
