Ibiza Love Part XV
At current summer temperatures on my favorite island Ibiza it’s almost hard to imagine, but yes, they do exist, the uncomfortable rainy days. My suggestion for a rather suboptimal weather condition: shopping! Get in your car and on the Carretera Ibiza Sant Miquel towards Santa Gertrudis. At kilometer four lies the probably largest shopping paradise of Ibiza, the Sluiz, which was founded by its Dutch owners as a small store in 2006 in Sant Josep. Today there are 6,000 square meters retail space of colorful lifestyle assortments, from hammocks to crochet bikinis.
Who spotted the closet or the lamp of his dreams here, does not necessarily have to own an Ibizan finca, to embellish it with the new piece of furniture. The Sluiz offers a delivery service until the domestic front door, i.a. to Germany. And since I am in love with the blue ceramic dishes, I can therefore opt for more than one. Or should I rather take the floral-printed variant? Now at the latest, my husband’s patience languishes, so I can conveniently park him at the bar of Sluiz. Here, the friendly bartender serves a cool Cerveza whilst I take important consumption decisions. Shopping makes you hungry. Therefore, there is a restaurant next to the bar, that is also a popular lunch place even for the Ibicencos, and where delicious hamburgers and homemade cakes are served.
Regularly, the Sluiz organizes wine tastings, on the food factory, regional products are offered and fans of the good old records should not miss the vinyl-record-fair. Dates and events can be found on the website. BvH
Mallorca travelers do not have to be sad or even rebook their holiday: The Sluiz opened in Palma in April 2016! Shop ’til you drop.
