Meghan Markle brings royal sparkle to Ibiza, inspiring holiday home buyers to focus on the island


The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, opted for Ibiza earlier this month, when it came to finding the perfect location to celebrate her 38th birthday with husband Prince Harry. With so much to offer, it’s easy to see why the island held such appeal to the royal couple.

There’s far more to Ibiza than its world-leading club scene. The island also offers plenty to those looking for quiet, serene breaks. It is home to incredibly beautiful beaches, wild vistas, quaint, sun-kissed villages and everything from yoga retreats to hippy markets. Ibiza also has a thriving culinary scene, with visitors enjoying a wide range of local dishes. The island’s seafood rice dishes and spicy sausages (which themselves crop up in a range of other traditional Ibizan recipes) are particularly noteworthy.

It is understandable, given the islands’ attractions, that the Balearics draw in so many foreign property buyers, as well as tourists. They attracted 2.4 million of the latter in June 2019 alone, according to Ibestat, while Kyero reports that the Balearics are the fifth most popular Spanish location when it comes to foreign buyers, who account for 31% of property purchases there.

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been building homes in Spanish coastal hotspots for the past 60 years and this year chose Ibiza’s beautiful Cala Gració area as the location for its new Sunset Ibiza development.

“As soon as I saw Cala Gració, I knew it was the perfect holiday home location. The quiet, turquoise waters and fine sands of the beach feel like a hidden oasis. The curve of the bay makes visitors feel like they are in a crystalline pool, surrounded by stunning natural scenery. It’s the perfect spot for enjoying Ibiza’s incredible sunsets – hence the name Sunset Ibiza.”

As well as its serene natural beauty, Cala Gració also provides all of the services and facilities that holidaymakers appreciate having close to hand when they use their second home. The two- and three-bedroom Sunset Ibiza homes are packed with luxury touches, as befits their frontline location. Porcelain floors and large windows provide plenty of natural light, while top quality kitchens and bathrooms deliver an elegant finish. Private underground parking and communal gardens and pool complete the offering, with homes priced from €410,500 plus VAT.

Enjoying the outdoor lifestyle is a key part of Ibiza’s charms and the homes at Sunset Ibiza have been designed with that in mind. As well as providing direct beach access, the properties come with large terraces that are perfect for outdoor dining or simply relaxing in the sun with a book and a refreshing drink.

“Ibiza is synonymous with relaxation, from its beautiful natural parks to its tranquil, turquoise waters. We’ve captured and distilled that essence of serenity at Sunset Ibiza, providing owners with somewhere that they can feel at peace and truly relax.”
