Ibiza symbolizes holidays and celebrations in Spain but also all over the world. Everything seems to be gathered on the same site to decompress: the beaches, the sun, the dance floors. You can go from the sand to the disco, from sunbathing days to wild nights. On the program, crazy parties orchestrated by the best DJs of the moment. Cicadas and electronic music rival each other in decibel over the hours. Even culture is invited to the festival because Ibiza is listed as a World Heritage Site for the Phoenician site of Sa Caleta, the necropolis of Puig des Molins or the historic centre of Eivissa, Dalt Vila. You also have typical restaurants to discover, charming houses and picturesque villages to visit. So let's get out of the clichés. Ibiza is a place of celebration, idleness and overcrowded beaches, but also a hinterland and less tourist seasons that offer other attractions. Thus in the heart of the island, the village of Santa Gertrudis, a beautiful white village around its church, with some nice tapas bars and some quiet shops. And all around the sheep and goats that graze. The village houses art galleries where you will find the works of a handful of artists who have packed their bags here to enjoy the island's pleasures all year round.

The must-see places in Ibiza

When to go to Ibiza?

In Ibiza, as in the other Balearic Islands, the high tourist season covers July and August. It is very hot - on average 30°C - and very dry. The sun shines every day. It's crowded. Tourist activities are at their peak. The mid-season covers the months of April, May, June, September and October. Temperatures are milder and the sun is still shining every day. It is the best time to enjoy the island without the crowd. The low season is in winter with an average of 15°C and rare rainy days. Few open hotels, few tourist activities, but the opportunity for a rejuvenating stay. If you come to celebrate, in low season, you will have the opportunity to participate in the famous opening and opening party, less touristic than the summer evenings.

How to go to Ibiza? Our advice & tips

  • Organised trips
  • Going alone
  • Moving around

Ibiza being one of the most touristic destinations in Europe, there is no difficulty in finding organized trips. It is generally a turnkey stay, accommodation and full or semi-full board. The formula is well established and to adopt if you do not fear the community and want to take advantage of some promotions (but prices must be compared because some really inflate prices in summer). The hotel services are of high quality.

In high season a trip to Ibiza cannot be improvised. You will have difficulty finding accommodation on site unless you are away from the seaside resorts! Air-only flights (Ibiza is connected to several French cities) are also under attack. Otherwise, there are no contraindications to organize your individual stay in Ibiza. You can rent a car, go looking for remote accommodation or a small lost restaurant and get away from the most popular tourist sites.

45 km long, 25 km wide, the island is quickly traversed by two main roads that are fairly mobile - except during traffic jams - and narrower, hilly secondary roads that open onto more wild landscapes. Rent a car if you want to enjoy its villages, small restaurants, panoramas and especially to isolate yourself. Attention the parking in the tourist areas sometimes poses problem (expensive and complete!). The island is served by the bus.
