Ibiza during Winter

5 reasons to visit Ibiza during Winter

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.

  1.    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.

  1.    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?

ffff

  1.    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.

  1.    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.

Cala Bassa

Cala Bassa is situated in the South West of Ibiza and one of the most popular beaches among tourists, plus local fisherman too! With its softest golden sand and clearest, cleanest waters you almost think you made it to Thailand!

Cala Comte

Cala Comte (o Cala Conte) is one of our favorite beaches in Ibiza! It’s a small beach but with such amazing colors and stunning views over the little islands that are spread around the island. And did you know that from this place it’s possible to see an amazing sunset each night? Definitely worth a visit!

Cala Salada

Cala Salada seems to have been relatively unscathed by the overdevelopment of its neighboring areas. It’s a bit hard to reach this beach, but if you do you can enjoy the turquoise water and escape the noise, hustle and bustle of San Antonio!

Cala Vadella

Do you see how big this area is? A lot to discover! Basically, you will find here everything you need: beach, restaurants/bars, stand-up paddle and amazing sunsets! And just around the corner Es Vedra is waiting for you!

Formentera

A lot of people talk about the magic of the waters of Formentera. The color and transparency are comparable with the beaches of the Caribbean and because of that, Formentera is has been baptized as the paradise of the Mediterranean!

It is mid-April and I am curious about a new place we just added to SeaBookings: IbizaSo why not book a private motorboat cruise in Ibiza to discover this island. I know the openings parties start at the end of May, but I want to see if Ibiza is worth visiting just before high season. From the aeroplane, we could see Ibiza is very green at this time of the year, probably because it is spring. So, for that matter, it’s already worth it going!

Departure was from Port Sant Antoni

Departure was from Port Sant Antoni

We went to Port Sant Antoni to experience a private motorboat cruise in Ibiza and discover the island from another perspective. Carla came to pick us up and together we walked to the boat. We were all so excited because this was the first boat tour of the season. At the harbor, Martin was already preparing the boat and we climbed on board. We were lucky because it was a beautiful day and we could experience the first trip of the season! Do you know that feeling you have when summer starts? That is exactly how you feel as soon as you get on this luxury boat. The MasterCraftx-55 is a combination of power, elegance and comfort and we felt it immediately.

Departing from the harbor Sant Antoni, our plan was to sail along the coast to see the most beautiful places. Ibiza has so much to offer and from the sea your experience will be totally different than from land. Besides partying and beautiful beaches, you can discover so much more of Ibiza by boat. It appears this island has many secrets and actually, doing a private motorboat cruise in Ibiza is the best way to discover some places you won’t be able to see otherwise.

Discover Ibiza´s best beaches by boat

It was our first time in Ibiza and because we didn’t know anything about the island yet, this boat tour gave us the opportunity to immediately check out the coolest places! We were already making notes what beaches and places we would visit next! This boat tour is a good way to start your holidays because the guide knows exactly which places you should definitely not miss! This way you can easily visit them later if you think they are worth it.

We saw, for example, Café Mambo, which is a popular place in summer with lots of parties and good music. From the boat, you can see all the people partying and enjoy exactly the same music as them. If you decide to go to this place at the end of the day, you will be seeing a stunning sunset too! Sounds good right?

If you are looking for a quieter experience you can choose to skip this place and see other places instead. During this private motorboat cruise in Ibiza it is very important you tell the guide exactly what you like to do because there are so many options and they really want you to have fun! Why not bring your own music or do a picnic on board?

We decided to see the most beautiful places and also, we wanted to know all the secrets! Along the tour we passed by fishermen’s huts, enchanting cliffs and saw the most beautiful beaches with white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. We even saw a home in the cliffs where someone was living! The cliffs are not all the same and that makes the island even more diverse and beautiful!

I took my mum. Who are you gonna invite on this unforgettable boat tour?

We also cruised along some romantic places and I can say, if you are planning to propose someone… Ibiza is the perfect location and this boat tour is perfect to do so! We were so amazed by everything we saw along the way. Sometimes you saw people struggling to get to nice beaches and for us, it was so easy to get there and enjoy the ambience. We went cruising for 2 hours and the time goes really fast! If you are planning to do a private motorboat cruise in Ibiza I would definitely recommend going longer. That way you can relax and enjoy what you see, but also stop for a swim or do some snorkeling. Time flies when you are having fun and in this case, that is really true! Imagine if you want to do more, like wakeboarding or water skiing. It is nice to have more time! After all, it is your holiday, right?

Thank you so much Carla and Martin for this amazing day! Now we can start our holidays and know exactly what to do and see to enjoy Ibiza to the fullest! I would definitely convince my group of friends to come to Ibiza and then we would do a longer private motorboat cruise in Ibiza and discover more places!
