Ibiza in Winter


Ibiza in winter is a very different destination compared to Summer; more relaxed and, although we doubt you will be stripping down to your swimming costume (or less). there is still plenty to do..and without the summer crowds

Temperatures, on average, are 10 degrees warmer than in northern Europe so it’s a great opportunity to escape the snow & ice

Restaurants:
There are a number of great beach restaurants that stay open in the winter, including:
 
Yemanya at Cala Jondal (next to Blue Marlin) open every day http://www.yemanjaibiza.com/
Cotton Beach Club at Cala Tarida – normally open Friday to Sunday http://cottonbeachclub.com/web/
Tanit Beach Club (normally open at weekends)  http://www.tanitbeachibiza.com/home/

Other restaurants that are normally open in the winter include;


Sport

Walking
Ibiza is an amazing island to explore by foot in winter and there are a number of walks you can take, including walking to the top of Sa Talaia - the tallest mountain on the island, and only 2 hours for a round trip, and on a clear day you can see much of the island & to the Spanish peninsula.
Other walks will allow you to see parts of the island not many visitors get to see. If you prefer to be guided then we can put you in contact with some real walking experts who do know the island like the back of their hands and, of course, they can go at your pace.

Or for something simpler take a walk to many of the larger beaches; walk from Ses Salinas to Es Cavallet, walk from Playa den Bossa to Figueretas, and on to Ibiza Town. Head east & explore the coastal path and discover the smaller beaches such as Cala Pada & Sargamassa.


Cycling
Cycling is very popular in Ibiza. There are a number of cycling shops who will rent bikes to you & deliver them to your villa, or to a central meeting point. They can also provide guided routes if required

Gyms
There are a number of gyms including B-Fit in Ibiza Town, & Fraile have multiple gyms in the south & west of Ibiza. Daily, weekly & monthly memberships are available

Tennis & Paddle
There are tennis & paddle (a mix of tennis & squash & very popular in Spain) centres

Spas, massages & relaxing

Atzaro hotel has a spa open all year round http://www.atzaro.com/en/spa-natural/spa/

There are some excellent massage therapists on the island who can come to your villa

Markets
Atzaro has a winter market on most Sundays in winter

San Juan Sunday market is a must visit for the weekly hippy market & music
Las Dalias, close to San Carlos, has regular events in the winter months https://lasdalias.es/


Villages & Towns
Take a stroll around the villages & towns of Ibiza:
Santa Eulalia has a high local population in winter so is often good to go for cafes & restaurants & exploring the beaches along the east coast.

Santa Gertrudis is a traditional village with a church square, bars & restaurants

San Carlos is a smaller & more sleepy village than Santa Gertrudis but worth a visit, as is San Juan (Sant Joan) on any day of the week, although Sunday is by far the business day when the hippy market takes over  the village
  
Ibiza Town has many bars & restaurants that normally stay open all year including La Brasa http://www.labrasaibiza.com/
In Parque Plaza many bars stay open through the winter, as do some on the waterfront (the western side of the marina)

The historic Dalt Vila is also great to walk along the cobbled streets

Nightlife
Pacha is open Friday & Saturday nights & normally on public holidays in the winter https://pachaibiza.com/en/



Relax
If you want to see what Ibiza is really like then come to the island in the winter...of course you won’t get the same heat as summer but bring a few books and discover what the locals already know; Ibiza in winter is incredibly underrated
