The best time to visit Ibiza depends on your travel plans and companions. Summer months from late May to early October are about fun—parties and nightlife, windsurfing, flyboarding, and much more. May–October is also great for those seeking cultural experiences (i.e., traditional folk dance—Ball Pagès), culinary delights and nature-based activities like hiking and boating.
Come off-peak season in April or October when it’s warm enough to enjoy a beach vacation, hotels are open, and there is some nightlife going on, but it's not as noisy and crowded as in the summer. Winter months are good for green nature, almond blossom and young wines.
