Ibiza Spain Weather – When to Visit
The best time to visit Ibiza is from May to October when high temperatures average from the mid-70s to the mid-80s and the party crowd descends. The months between November and April are considered low season, when flight and hotel rates drop along with the temperatures to more moderate 50s and 60s. You might have to contend with some restaurant, club and hotel closures during the low season, especially between December and February – and you’ll definitely have to take boat tours off your itinerary, but you can find some deals on hotel and fight rates during this season.
Best Ibiza Spain Beaches
This small beach has coarse, rocky sand, and the edges of the beach are rocks, not sand. Aside from the spectacular sunsets, the beach holds a famous drum circle on Sundays at sunset. The water is crystal clear, like an aquarium. There are some vendors selling food and drinks, as well as beach chairs and umbrellas for rent.
Ses Salines Beach
If you want a remote, rugged beach but like cafés, electronic dance music, and funky stores, Ses Salines is for you. Restaurants, music venues, and small shops line the beachfront. Some of the establishments rent sun loungers and beach chairs, and there are plenty of beach vendors working the sand.
There’s a wooden boardwalk on the beach lined with cafés and restaurants. You have a full range of water sports rentals, along with multiple beach volleyball courts. There are several lifeguard stations along the beach. Beach goers can set up on the sand, or you can rent a sun lounger and an umbrella.
Playa d’en Bossa
This is Ibiza’s longest beach and the most commercial in terms of beachfront shops and cafés. It’s about 10 minutes from Ibiza Town, and the promenade is lined with entertainment venues, restaurants, and shops. It’s not a place to relax and enjoy a quiet beach, it’s more a place to have fun, dance, and people watch.
Pou des Lleo Beach
Pou des Lleo beach is like a postcard come to life. The small horseshoe-shaped cove is surrounded by low red cliffs. The water is clear, and this beach is popular for scuba diving and snorkeling.
