Sunshine is a near constant in Ibiza, the island is blessed with clear skies for more than 300 days of the year. The toasty summer lasts from May through to early October, with peak sizzle season in July and August. Of course, summer is also prime tourist territory on the island, but countless pockets of seclusion are still there for the taking if you look hard enough. Plus there are lots of fun festivals, events and activities taking place during this period.
As the famous clubs call closing time, the mass of fun-in-the-sun-seekers return to whence they came and the island sheds its summer skin, revealing a more mellow side. From November to April, the weather does cool, but the winter sunshine ensures you’ll still make your Vitamin D quota. On good days, the temperatures can inch up to 20 degrees Celsius (or beyond), while during the coldest stretches, the weather is more suited to strolls on the sand than sunbathing.
Every restaurant, cafe and bar featured on Ibiza Spotlight has been carefully selected for quality and value. Offering a wide range of culinary choice and ambience the one thing they all have in common is a strong reputation for maintaining high standards year after year. Expect to enjoy tempting food, stylish or rustic surroundings and great service.
