Visiting Ibiza during Winter is maybe one of the best things you can do. Really! During this time of the year, there are so many beautiful things you can see and the fact that it’s less crowded means that you can enjoy the island even better.
Lianne, responsible for the Spanish market and content/translations at SeaBookings, went to Ibiza just before the high season and shares her experience:
I am happy we did! In summer it turns into a party island, which is also nice, but in fall, winter and even in spring Ibiza is completely different and according to the locals, it’s actually the best time to visit Ibiza.
- Lower temperatures
Winter is the time of the year that you will get a different perspective on the island’s beauty. Lower temperatures on Ibiza during Winter mean that you can explore the island more easily and with fewer tourists around you will see things you otherwise wouldn’t even notice.
Did you know for example that winter sunsets are very different from the ones in summer? They are something magical with lots of colors mixed together.
- Almond blossom
I think that everyone agrees that almond trees in bloom are very beautiful. Between January and March, you can actually see the white and light pink colored trees already on the island.
You can do a full moon walk in Santa Inés and admire the silvery blanket of almond trees under the light of the moon. I am sure that is something you’ve never done before, right?
- Rent a car and visit secluded areas
Driving is the easiest way to get around Ibiza. Renting a car is, of course, cheaper during low season and definitely a great way to discover the hidden winter treasures.
I really enjoyed taking my mom to new places and discover some hidden beaches. Most of the beaches are secluded, but the bars and restaurants around it are still open.
Check out the lovely road to the Cala d’Hort beach on the picture above. Cala d’Hort is a small, beloved beach with a fantastic view of the mysterious island of Es Vedra.
If you like to take photos, then this is your chance! During fall, winter and especially spring Ibiza shows the best it has to offer: vivid colors, picture-perfect clouds and that light which seems to characterize the whole island.
- Outdoor activities
Because the temperatures on the island are always nice you can do a lot of outdoor activities in Ibiza during Winter.
If you would like to discover the island from another perspective, then I really can recommend doing a stand-up paddle tour in Cala Vadella.
Every Wednesday and Saturday there are organised tours and with a minimum of 2 people, it is also possible to do stand-up paddle at any other day.
During winter months, Ibiza town is less crowded, but normally there are always some private boat tours that are open all year.
We went on a private boat tour during wwinter season, it was great fun.
Do you prefer to relax? No problem, there are many restaurants and bars where you can enjoy the view over the ocean.
I hope I could help you prepare your visit to Ibiza during Winter! Enjoy your stay and feel free to contact me for any additional tips or questions or take a look at the other blog posts I wrote about Ibiza.
