We were the 18-30 generation in the Balearics, those of us born in 1830!
It was, of course, a rite of passage which my schoolpals had lined up for summer after school.
Only I was a few months shy. Oh well!
The White Island
Of course the White Island is more than just raves and waves although a good swimming pool never hurts.
Which is exactly what OKU Hotels have at their new flagship 5* hotel OKU Ibiza which opens next April.
OKU Ibiza boasts the largest swimming pool on the island (one of four), an intimate spa, a private 4-bedroom villa with pool and the OKU restaurant.
OKU you say… well it’s the principles of meaningful use of space, natural light and shadows.
The team drew inspiration from the Wabi Sabi philosophy which champions the connection to earth and using natural materials.
Ibiza is, contrary to popular thinking, a classic old island and you’ll want to get out to explore it for yourself.
There are beautiful cliffside coastal walks with stunning views right on your doorstep.
And your hosts cam also organise an array of activities.
Such as private boat trips to Formentera and nearby islands, kayaking by sunset and guided walks through breathtaking terrain.
Rates at OKU Ibiza are from €360 (£323) pee night, based on two sharing a Superior room.
