Tips for your trip to Ibiza


Ibiza is one of the most famous among the Balearic islands, belonging to the national territory of Spain. The island and its main town (34,000 inhabitants) bear the same name and share a thousand-year history that begins in the time of the Phoenicians and reached its maximum glory during the Roman age. Today Ibiza is “the” symbol of tourism par excellence. But, by living it without prejudice and without standard blinders, you can discover – in addition to the well known beaches – and enjoy much more.

When to go to Ibiza

The best time to visit Ibiza is spring, or early autumn, when the climate is still warm but not hot and there are fewer crowds around. However, if you are looking for the fun and events that make Ibiza so famous, especially among young people, the ideal is to go in July or August.

Travel documents

Ibiza, like Spain itself, is part of EU and the Schengen Agreement area. This means you can enter this country by only showing an identity document – passport or identity card from their own country. If you come from a “non-Schengen” nation, you must show a valid passport – up to three months after the date of your arrival.

What to pack for your trip to Ibiza

Swimsuits – plural! – they must never be missing in your suitcase for Ibiza. Even if you go in autumn, the sea is always warm and pleasant. Also include light, sporty clothes, comfortable shoes, hats and sunscreen in your luggage. Of course, don’t forget your camera! It is advisable to also bring some elegant dress/clothes with you because the crazy local nightlife will often take you to cultural events of a certain quality level.

How to get to Ibiza

Ibiza Airport (IBZ) is the main gateway to the island. It welcomes national and international flights, especially in summer when low-cost connections are in the majority. If you have time and money you can reach Ibiza and its sister islands also by ferries or private boats from Barcelona

How to move through Ibiza

To get around the island, the cheapest way would be the public bus. The public service in Ibiza is quite efficient but does not cover all the tourist destinations on the island. Alternatively, rely on a taxi, chauffeur-driven transport (for example, the one offered by Transfeero) or private shuttles. You can also get around Ibiza by rental car (the best way) or by private boats.

What to see

Ibiza is certainly dream beaches, discos, places to eat well… especially in the main town. But each city or town on the island also offers many historical insights, beautiful architecture, cultural events related to art. Don’t settle for staying in the sun all day, have the curiosity and desire to get to know Ibiza down to its most hidden corners. Places such as…

  • D’En Bossa Beach
  • Cala Llonga
  • Cala Tarida
  • Cala Sant Vicent
  • Es Canar
  • Ibiza City
  • Portinatx
  • Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera

What to do and NOT to do in Ibiza

What will you do during a holiday in Ibiza? Sea, sea, sea and lots of sun! The beaches are a dream to be fully experienced as is the nightlife in the clubs and the fabulous experience of “boat parties”, i.e. parties on boats anchored offshore. Also treat yourself to some trekking in nature, on the island, to admire something unique like the Ibizan sunsets.

In Ibiza, however, YOU MUST NEVER:

  • let yourself be duped by those who sell tickets at a bargain price for clubs and discos;
  • book a dinner, an event or worse, transport or accommodation at the last moment;
  • bivouacking on the beach: it is strictly forbidden!
  • fossilize yourself only on your tan, missing out on other wonderful itineraries on the island.
