Ibiza is located in the Mediterranean Sea, 150 kilometres off the coast of Valencia in eastern Spain. It is the third largest of the Balearic island archipelago, which also includes Palma de Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera among other smaller islands.
Ibiza is an island of contrasts, where traditional lifestyles co-exist harmoniously with a cosmopolitan setting. Ibiza’s stunning coastline competes in beauty with the rural landscapes of the island’s interior. A thriving party scene orbits tranquil island life, and world-class gastronomy is offered alongside simple classic fare. It’s this variety that continues to attract tourists from around the world each season.
Be it the super clubs, beach bars, boat parties or San Antonio’s bustling ‘West End’, Ibiza isn’t short of options to let loose and party. Ibiza has long held the crown as Europe’s summer party capital. Every season, many of the worlds top DJ’s including David Guetta, Carl Cox and Tiesto, perform at Ibiza’s clubs and party people from all over the world visit the island for it’s electronic music scene.
As well as Ibiza’s iconic international super clubs including Pacha, Space and Amnesia, the last several years has seen an emergence of daylight open-air clubbing with the opening of venues such as Destino and Ushuaia near Ibiza Town and Ocean Beach in San Antonio.
Ibiza’s 210-kilometre coastline is a wild discovery of hidden pebbled coves and beautiful sandy beaches, dotted between rocky outcrops and lofty pine-covered cliffs. With long sunny days and water temperatures around 26°C in peak season, Ibiza’s beaches are one of it’s major draw cards.
The waters are usually calm which makes the island a great beach holiday choice for families with young children. Many beaches also offer watersports for the more active holidaymaker and sun loungers and umbrellas for those that want to just relax.
Despite common belief that there are no quiet beaches in Ibiza during summer, there are actually many off-the-beaten-path swimming spots to discover if you’re willing to search a little harder. Try seeking out Es Portixol, Es Pou des Lleo or Cala Xucla.
History and Culture
In 1999, Ibiza was declared World Heritage by UNESCO due in part to it’s considerable, well-preserved vestiges of the island’s long and significant history.
Ibiza’s most famous historical landmark is the fortress of D’alt Vila (literally translated as Upper Town), which dominates the Ibiza Town skyline. A wander through the cobblestoned alleys of this famous attraction will take you through Ibiza’s history of invasions and also spoil you with fantastic Ibiza Town views from the top ramparts. Other intriguing Ibiza cultural sites include the 16th century defense towers dotted along Ibiza’s coastline and the Necropolis of Puig des Molins, one of Europe’s best-preserved Phoenician burial sites.
Over the last decade, Ibiza’s restaurant scene has exploded, attracting some of the world’s top chefs and foodies alike. All tastes are catered for from international dishes to traditional Spanish tapas, with options for high-class fine dining to toes-in-the-sand chiringuitos.
The amount of dining options can be overwhelming, so please feel free to ask us at Ibiza Summer Villas for our recommendations. We know the Ibiza food scene well! Some of our favourites include La Paloma in San Lorenzo for a fresh and healthy lunch, La Bodega in Ibiza Town for great tapas and Hostel La Torre in San Antonio for a sunset dining experience.
Ibiza is an ideal destination for holidaymakers who like to be active during their time off. For walkers, the island has many trails for all levels of fitness and you can opt to follow the marked routes yourself or join a guided walking tour. Mountain bike riders are also spoilt for trail choices. Road cycling is also popular during the quieter months when the roads are not so busy.
High adrenaline watersports such as wind surfing, water skiing and jet-skiing can be found in many of the more popular Ibiza beaches, as well as kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, diving and snorkeling. These activities usually don’t require an advanced booking and are offered from vendors on the beaches.
Ibiza has it’s own style when it comes to fashion and shopping, with plenty to satisfy the most enthusiastic shoppers. From bustling hippy markets, to eclectic boutiques and high-end designer stores, the island is becoming known for its retail offerings. Some of the best places to pick up something special for yourself or someone back home include the maze of boutiques around the base of D’alt Vila, the Saturday hippy markets of Las Dalias and the upscale stores along the luxurious Marina Botafoch.
Ibiza’s sister island, Formentera, is just two nautical miles from the south of Ibiza and boasts crystalline waters, pretty pueblos and a deep laid-back vibe. With regular ferries from Ibiza, this beautiful Mediterranean outpost makes for a great day trip.
These are just some of the many top attractions in Ibiza.
Different Times of the Year
Ibiza has two distinct seasons, typically termed as the summer (May – October) and the winter (November – April). At the end of April, the island emerges from hibernation and readies itself for the summer. Whilst any month during summer is a great time to visit Ibiza, each month offers something slightly different. Why not spend an Ibiza Christmas on our beautiful island for a different experience.
Ibiza in May and June
Average temperatures in May and June are 18°C - 22°C with sea temperatures averaging 18°C - 21°C. The island is green and fresh from the winter, and many of the locals have a skip in their step after a restful winter. This is a popular time for families to visit the island, as the heat isn’t as strong and the crowds are less. There are also many events throughout May and June including the International Music Summit, the Ibiza Medieval Festival and many of the clubs opening parties.
Ibiza in July and August
Average temperatures in July and August hover around 26°C with sea temperatures averaging 24°C - 26°C. This is the hottest and busiest time of year in Ibiza, and for many it’s the most fun with the island’s clubbing scene in full swing. You are guaranteed long sunny summer days and warm waters.
Ibiza in September and October
Average temperatures in September and October range between 21°C - 24°C with sea temperatures averaging 22°C - 25°C. The crowds start to disperse towards the end of September, with many of the clubs hosting their famous closing parties. October is a very popular time for families to visit the island, due to the warm weather, slower pace and lower accommodation prices.
Ibiza November to April
Ibiza is quiet during the off-season, November–April, however a growing number of tourists are choosing to take advantage of this and visit the island for a peaceful break. While most of the large hotels and many of the clubs and bars in Playa d’en Bossa and San Antonio are closed for the winter, both Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia still have a steady flow of activity.
Ibiza Summer Villas does not rent villas through the winter months, however we are still in the office working and are happy to point you in the right direction should you wish to visit the island off season. Please contact us for more information on Ibiza in winter.
Ibiza offers plenty of accommodation options to suit all budgets and type of holidaymaker.
One of the most popular ways to holiday in Ibiza is with a private villa rental. Often groups of friends or family choose to rent a villa to enjoy more privacy, a lower cost per head, a private pool and more space. It’s very important to use a reputable villa rental agency when booking a villa in Ibiza. At Ibiza Summer Villas, we have a large range of private villas in Ibiza Town, Playa d’en Bossa, San Antonio and other parts of the island. We also have a reputable track record on TripAdvisor and welcome back many happy clients each season. Most villas in Ibiza require a minimum one-week stay, however we do have flexible options in our portfolio.
