Find out more about Ibiza

If this is your first time visiting Ibiza, we recommend that you find out a little about what the island has to offer, what you can see and what you will find during your stay.

Today the sources of information are almost endless, especially using the Internet. In this section we are going to explain some things that may be useful to you, however, we recommend that you take a look at the tourism websites of the different town halls on the island:

Portal de turismo del Ajuntament de Eivissa

Portal del Ajuntament de Sant Antoni de Portamany

Portal de turismo del Ajuntament de Sant Josep

Portal de turismo del Ajuntament de Santa Eulari des Riu


Once on the island, you can also go to one of the many tourist offices where they will advise you during your stay.

Don’t forget that for any trip you have planned it is always advisable to inform someone about your itinerary, where you are staying and how to contact you if necessary.


Travel documents

If you are travelling to Ibiza from a European Union country, it is sufficient to carry your ID card, checking that it has not expired. From all other countries it will be necessary to travel with your passport.

We recommend that you write down information such as passport number, airline ticket locator, traveller’s cheque numbers (if applicable), credit card number and bank account number (in case you need to make a money transfer) somewhere separate from your documents. If necessary, this information will facilitate the reporting, renewal or cancellation in the event of loss or theft. You can also write all this data in an email and send it to yourself, so that you can access it from anywhere via the Internet.




Long journeys by plane

If the plane trip to Ibiza is going to be a long one, there are some safety considerations to consider. Factors such as reduced oxygen in the cabin, or prolonged immobility can cause circulatory as well as respiratory problems. Although the possibility of suffering this pathology is very low if there are no risk factors, it is recommended that you do some frequent exercises to stimulate circulation. It is also advisable to wear comfortable, loose clothing. You should avoid carbonated drinks. Classic ear discomfort during the flight can be avoided by chewing gum.

When the trip means there will be jet lag with respect to your home country, you can avoid Jet Lag as much as possible by sleeping during the flight and drinking plenty of fluids before and during the trip. Medications are also available to help reduce its effects.

Once on the island, you can also go to one of the many tourist offices where they will advise you during your stay.

With respect to children, it is not recommended that they travel when they are less than 7 days old and always pay close attention to their proper hydration.


Boat trips

An alternative to flying is to travel to Ibiza by boat. Ferries currently arrive on the island from Barcelona, Denia (Alicante), Gandia, Valencia and Palma de Mallorca.



We recommend that you make a realistic estimate of the money you think you will need during your stay. As you know, the official currency in Ibiza is the Euro, but it will not be difficult for you to change any currency into Euros once you arrive in Ibiza. Some shops on Ibiza even change some foreign currencies for you without charging a commission.



To facilitate the return of luggage in the event of loss by the airline, we recommend that you identify the luggage with a label with your name, address or means of contact.

Ibiza has a relatively mild climate all year round due to its location in the Mediterranean.  The island enjoys an average of six hours sunshine a day in winter and more than ten in summer. The average annual humidity is around 70%.

If you plan to travel to Ibiza in the summer, prepare mainly light clothing, short-sleeved t-shirts, shorts, etc. In case the temperatures drop (especially in May, September and October) we recommend you take a jacket or sweater with you. Just in case you can bring a rain jacket as a rainy day may take you by surprise. The average temperature in summer is between 20 and 34 °C maximum and between 15 and 19 °C minimum.

If, on the other hand, you are going to visit Ibiza in winter, you will usually find a fairly mild and pleasant temperature. The sun normally shines brightly during this time of year, although the drop in temperatures is noticeable in comparison with the summer. The average temperature during the winter is between 20 and 25ºC maximum and 7 and 15ºC minimum.


Getting around Ibiza

Although Ibiza is not very large (45 km long by 25 km wide) if you want to make the most of your stay, it is best to rent a car to get around the island, as public transport will not take you to many of the interesting places you should not miss.
If you ask us when booking, we can arrange the rental of your vehicle so that you can have it ready when you arrive on the island.
