Property in Ibiza tends to be very expensive partly because the island became a fashionable place to live in back in the 1960’s with the rich and famous and as a result property prices there are sky high. However, with these times of austerity and economic decline would it ever be worthwhile trying to buy a property in Ibiza at a reasonable price comparable to the prices fetched for property on the costa del sol today or will Ibiza always remain prohibitively expensive?
Brits sleeping rough in Ibiza is a man bites dog story.
There have been young Brits sleeping rough in Ibiza for as long as I can remember, as often as not because they go over to party their heads off for a weekend and don’t even bother booking a room anywhere. Why pay for a bed if you never plan to get into it?
I’ve ‘slept rough’ in plenty of places in my life, including Henley-on-Thames over the Regatta, I hate to admit. Hardly a great hardship when you are young.
Obviously none of this is the same as the tragedy of homelessness amongst the young in the UK.
