The Spanish island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean is largely seen as a summer destination, when thousands of tourists flock there for the big club nights and warm weather. However, this doesn’t mean that the island shuts down outside of the main season. There is still plenty to see and do on the island during the winter months.
Still time for clubbing
Prices during the summer can rise considerably, so there should be a range of cheap apartments to choose from after October. If you still want to hit the dance floor, Pacha remains open on the weekend and has an amazing New Year’s Eve party. On Fridays, you can also dance the night away at Booom and Pikes Hotel, so you won’t be short of some Ibiza action.
You might not realize that the island gets 300 days of sunshine, and with temperatures still around 16oC, you’ll enjoy pleasant weather for sightseeing or relaxing on the many beaches.
What to see
These cooler months are ideal for renting a car and exploring the island. Ibiza Old Town has some beautiful architecture, and you can climb up to the cathedral and castle for some stunning views of the area. It’s also a fantastic time for walking or cycling. The island has miles of nature trails that take you through the lush forests and past lovely beaches. If you want to pick up some gifts, head to Las Dalias on Saturdays, which is a hippie market.
