One of my favorite places to watch sunset on the Island of Ibiza, is Hostal La Torre at Cap Negret, just outside San Antonio on the North Coast. A place full of character and local charm, it is steeped in local Ibicenco simplicity. Its owner grew up on the Island and now manages the small guest house, perched on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean sea and the most natural of Ibiza Sunsets. La Torre is frequented by locals but the odd international DJ or Celebrity can often be spotted there.
For the first time in a number of years, its owner Pedro, will stand aside at the decks to allow a new DJ to take his time honored position. A place of privilege only belongs to the worthy and thankfully Pedro has finally found a DJ to fill his shoes. His name is legendary Ibiza chillout pioneer, Jose Padilla, whose iconic residency at Cafe Del Mar made it a world wide brand. Padilla has made a few impromptu DJ appearances at La Torre in the past, but subject to license, it is hoped that every Wednesday, Padilla will play his unique and beautiful Sunset tribute at 8pm.
It promises to be a special occasion as the location will certainly bring Padilla back to his roots of simple, non commercial, natural beauty.
