The best times to visit Ibiza


When is the best time to go to Ibiza?

Ibiza is a great place to holiday any time of the year. If you're looking for a beach holiday, it's best to opt for a trip between June and September, when temperatures fluctuate between 25 and 30 degrees and the water ​​can be as warm as 25 degrees. The timing is also perfect for would-be club-hoppers, as the hottest locales present a colourful program until October, with the world's best DJs on hand to fill the island's dance floors.

In the low season, when temperatures fall below the 20 degree mark, the island is tends to grow quiet. Visitors who want a more relaxed experience should aim to travel around this time of year. Starting in April, the temperatures begin to rise rapidly. May is particularly good for a romantic holiday: the partygoers are still a long way off, but the warm weather invites days of sunbathing. As a general rule, the best travel months are May, June, July and August .

Pirate tip: Interested in seeing an incredible natural spectacle? Then plan your Ibiza vacation for one of the cooler months, February.
