Best time of year to visit Ibiza

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, windsurfing, flyboarding, slingshots, and much more. If you are a foodie, then aim for April–October when the majority of restaurants open their doors.
May–October is great for those seeking cultural experiences (i.e., traditional folk dance—Ball Pagès), culinary delights, and nature-based activities like hiking and boating. In case parties are not your thing, choose April or October when it’s warm enough to enjoy a beach vacation, hotels are open, and there is some nightlife going on. Winter months are good for green nature, almond blossom, and young wines.

The first month of the year is the coldest in Ibiza. However, don’t expect frost of snow. It is still quite mild with comfortable temperatures above the freezing level. Even in January Ibiza boats 7 hours of sunshine. The sea temperature is slightly warmer than the air temperature. It’s too cold to swim, but if you want to put a wetsuit and enjoy some watersports, you can certainly do so. Ibiza has about 10 rainy days in January, which means that an umbrella will come in handy. As well as a jacket and some waterproof boots. On average, Ibiza winters are quite wet and humid. But the locals say that it usually rains just for three days in a row, and then you can count on sunny clear skies. Eastern and western parts of the island are usually the warmest since they are sheltered by the mountains.

With eight hours of sunshine per day, it’s a good time for hiking. Explore the ruins of the Lost City or one of the small villages that are so quiet and peaceful during winter.

It’s getting warmer and sunnier with every day of spring in Ibiza. Due to comfortable temperature during the day, it feels great to spend time outside in the sun. With nine hours of sunshine in a day it’s a perfect time to go hiking and explore Sa Talaia, the highest point on Ibiza. Swimming in the sea without a wetsuit is still too cold. However, March kicks off wildflower bloom in Ibiza. The island gets covered with beautiful colors and smells. You will see them everywhere: along roads, on the streets, and throughout the fields. So get lost in the Ibiza countryside and celebrate the arrival of spring.

Spring is very warm and beautiful in Ibiza. Due to the balmy Mediterranean climate, some afternoons already feel like summer. It’s time to unpack those t-shirts and shorts! April brings lots of sunshine with and about seven rainy days during the month. This weather is perfect to explore the island, fishing villages and mountains covered with wildflowers. The sea temperature warms up a bit in comparison with previous months, but it’s still too cold to swim without a wetsuit. But the weather is warm enough for sunbathing and relaxing in a heated pool.

If you like outdoor activities and not that crazy about hot weather and the beach, you can still have a good time in Ibiza in November. There is a good chance that you will see a shower or two, as there are 10 rainy days this month. Bring extra layers of warm clothes. Days are still quite warm and mild, but it can get cold at night. Also, cool waves might bring a few days with lower temperatures. But it’s still a good time for water sports, cycling, hiking, sightseeing and visiting museums. The sea cools down and gets too cold for swimming by the end of the month. Eastern and western sides of the mountains usually are less exposed to wind and cold.

The arrival of winter in Ibiza is usually quite mild. Even though December is the second coldest month after January, the temperature never goes below freezing or even into one-digit numbers in Celsius. Still, pack a warm jacket and a few sweaters if you plan to spend some time outside. You don’t have to pack a swimsuit since the sea is too cold to swim. With just seven hours of daylight, December has the shortest days throughout the year. There are 11 rainy days this month so you will see a lot of clouds and grey skies. However, even in December Ibiza can boast some beautiful sunny days when you can read a book, sitting in an outside cafe or plan a trip to Sa Talaiassa mountain
