    They are class photos, I wish I could've gone there back then before it turned into what it is now.

    Yeah, I feel the same. I was there in 1998 and expected what I saw in my parents´ pics from 1977. But it was not the same... I was a little bit dissapointed. I feel like it is now to make as much profit as possible from the tourists. In my gallery you can see more pics from the same hippie market in 1998.

    Yeah it's all just larger louts now, even Benniras beach from what I hear which was a hippy spot up until very recently has gotten very commercialised. I've never been but my mates went in 2001 and were really really disappointed.

    that time has gone by, we younger are always nostalgic about it, and many things like events, gathering concerts are often just trying to go back to those years which aren't anymore..we have to find something different

    I've heard many legends and wonderful stories about Ibiza in the 70's, that was one of the reasons I came for the first time in the 90's. It was still great even not like in the 70's: roads have been built (I've heard that people walked through the campo because of no roads and they met a lot. As often it took a long time to go from one point to another, they stopped in a house and had a spontaneous party !).
    Tourism has grew up more and more each year and now, real hippies or people who knew Ibiza in the 70's stay at home to not meet with all these tourists who have widely contributed to the decade of the magic island.

    Viva Ibiza ! We love you Ibiza !

    Thanks so much for the photos! I was there too, permanently...,though I didn't take any photos! We were living so frantickly at that time this marvelous happiness with broad-minded and congenial people, we thaught it was "normal" ,not worth photos...!
    This was in the very past ,as now people are just going there to GET ,no longer to GIVE, to WATCH ,no longer to PLAY! I'll tell all my freinds about your discovery!
    Love and Hugs!

    Thanks so much for remembering us Ibiza, in its best years, with so nice photos!
    I loved Ibiza and its magical atmosphere. So different now! But ...
    If you can read French, it's possible you can read a thread about The Legends of Ibiza: You go in www.all-ibiza.com Then you go to "en français", then: "tout à vous", then: "le forum", then "ibiza" (the first one) and go to: "la légende d'Ibiza".
    Be happy!

    Yeah ... really nice photos which bring some homesickness of these said so "Golden Ages" ... haven't know them though, as Rainbow Girl said, the ninety period was quite great in Ibiza : I remember huge drum and dance parties in Benirras where the whole beach was still meditating, dancing and singing in front of the sunset, colourfull clothes, naked people or covered with mud remaining primitive transes !

    Also the sensual and free namaste in las Dalhias before they became touristic attractions : all beautifull people wearing their "soul clothes", smiling, kissing each other, caressing and loving each other ...

    The magical meetings which lead to parties in the rocks, eating and sharing fruits at Cala Yoga, meditations on top of the rooves, crazy dancing in the teatro, delightful breakfasts at the Croissant show, children games in the sea or in some nice fincas ....

    Waouh ... thank you for this thread and pictures that remind me so amazing and wonderful moments in Ibiza !!!

    Those are awesome photos. When were they taken? Did you say they were taken by your parents?
