Take in the vast, beautiful landscapes bordered by remote rocky coves and white-sand beaches just begging to be explored. Enchanting natural vistas, combined with a wide selection of luxury villas and charming boutique hotels, Ibiza is the perfect spot for a relaxed holiday. Whether you choose to spend your days strolling around the quirky and charming Dalt Villa (Old Town), exploring the countryside’s plentiful vineyards, indulging in the delicious local cuisine, or simply kicking back on one of the island’s stunning beaches, the choices are boundless.

Ibiza: Fast facts

  • A rock island, Ibiza is the third-largest of the Balearic Islands and an autonomous community of Spain.
  • With an average annual temperature of 18.3 °C, the island is relatively mild throughout the year. Typically warm, sunny and dry, it has low variation between high and low temperatures, and enjoys a long, hot summer from May through to September.
  • The island has a population of around 140,000 inhabitants, although the number of residents grows significantly during the summer season. While Eivissenc is the native dialect of Catalan that is spoken on Ibiza, thanks to the presence of tourists, English, French, German and other European languages are also widely spoken.

Why go to Ibiza?

Jaw-dropping historical sites  

Significant areas of Ibiza are registered as UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to their historical, cultural, and architectural value, and are well worth exploring. Offering a wealth of history, the Old Town is particularly fascinating as the acropolis boasts winding alleys and stunning monuments such as the castle and the cathedral.

Outside of the capital, you’ll find a number of important historical and cultural sites scattered across the island, such as the sacred mount of Santa Eulària and Sant Miquel, the Phoenician remains of Sa Caleta, in San Josep, and the Phoenician-Punic necropolis of Puig des Molins.

Natural beauty & stunning scenery

Ibiza boasts a variety of stunning natural landscapes and landforms for you to explore and enjoy. Whether you choose to hike up Sa Talaiassa, the highest point in Ibiza offering breath-taking views of both the east and west coasts, or simply watch the sunset over the waves from one of the island’s beaches, you’re constantly surrounded by magnificent natural beauty.

An abundance of beaches and coves

Ibiza is home to a huge number of gorgeous beaches and coves, including:
  • Aguas Blancas in Sant Carles: A tiny beach with rugged cliffs and clear shallow water ideal for swimming.
  • Benirras in Sant Joan: Thanks to its locations in a calm bay, Benirras is great for snorkelling (and for mooring your yacht on the cliff walls). Take a hike on the surrounding hills before cooling off in the sea.
  • Cala Bassa in Sant Antonio Bay: These rocky coves offer a beautiful white sand beach and a shady pine forest.
  • Pou Des Lleo in Sant Carles: The unreal cove is perfect for exploring.
  • Cala D'Aubarcs: An untouched spot perfect for a secluded day-trip.

A base from which to explore  

Outside of taking in the island’s history and enjoying its sensational beaches, Ibiza is a great base from which to explore surrounding islands.

Why not hire a yacht and travel to the neighbouring island of Formentera? Only reachable by boat, it is often much quieter than Ibiza and is perfect for a day trip. Other options include Tagomago Island, located just a few kilometres off Ibiza's north-western tip, it is a great place to spend a day or two, offering both fishing and water sports.

When to go to Ibiza

When you choose to go to Ibiza will depend on the kind of holiday you are looking for. November to April are the quietest months to visit for an authentic taste of the island with temperatures averaging around 15C (though they can go higher). This is the ideal time for a peaceful break where the temperatures are low enough for you to explore the island and stay active comfortably.

If you’re after sun and sea, the summer party season runs from May to October, with July and August being the busiest and hottest months.
