Ibiza in March
The month of March is a wonderful time to visit Ibiza. The island is alive with a wonderful display of spring flowers and greenery at this time of year. Take your chance to explore this magical island without the madding crowds of the summer season.
Temperatures average 14 degrees in March, making it feel much warmer than most European cities. Plenty of sunshine and a balmy sea temperature of 15 degrees make it a most inviting time of year. The evenings are still very cool so be sure to pack accordingly.
Each March the pretty town of San Jose in the south west of the island comes to life with its annual fiesta. The main event usually takes place on the Saturday which falls closest to 19th March, to celebrate Dia de San José / St. Joseph’s Day. The town is transformed into a Flower Power festival. Street parties, live music and a huge open air disco are all themed with the hippy vibe. The party continues late into the night and is a must for any disco divas amongst you!
Before the island is in the full swing of summer, March is a perfect time to take advantage of the tranquillity of the Spring. Hire a car and visit some of Ibiza’s beauty spots. Here are a few suggestions.
Pou des Leo
This picturesque bay just north of San Carlos is a real hidden treasure, unspoilt by tourist attractions. Take a moment to savour the beauty of the coastline here. Pack a picnic and enjoy the peaceful views. The chiringuito restaurant here is open all year round and is famous for its fantastic seafood and paella dishes.
The whitewashed 18th century church is the central point of this rural village set amongst the pine trees. Life is peaceful here, but the many bars and cafes make it the perfect place to stop for lunch.
Every Sunday, between 8am to 4pm, this second hand market is a buzzing and colourful place. Wander amongst the stalls and pick up a bargain, or take a break and listen to the live music. Here you can find anything from vintage clothes and jewellery to antique furniture or ornaments. An ideal place to find a souvenir of your visit.
Direct flights from the UK and other European cities are available throughout March and at very competitive prices.
