Best Time to Go to Ibiza

There is really not a bad time of the year to go to Ibiza with its nice Mediterranean climate where the summers are long and the winters are mild. When you go to Ibiza why are you going? Are you going to take advantage of the many beautiful beaches? Are you going to take in the party atmosphere? Or are you going just to get away? Many people go to take advantages of the beaches, which are plentiful all around the island from deserted ones to ones that have the big parties. If you plan on going to Ibiza to take in the beach life then you should know the weather for the different seasons.

Spring


When the spring comes around the temperature of Ibiza cools down a little and usually, the median temperature is around 70 degrees, which is very nice. In the spring, there will also be rain in a decent amount, but not too much. The evenings can get a little cool, but not cold and the beaches at night on the island in the spring can be spectacular, especially at sunset and sunrise.

Summer

Summer can be the best time to visit Ibiza, but it is also the height of the tourist season. Not a big shock that in the summer is when the weather is the hottest in Ibiza. However, the temperature does not get sweltering and in the evenings, it is usually around 65-70 degrees in June and a little hotter in July and August. There is not much rain in the summer, but it does happen so if you go at that time maybe a little rain jacket may not be a bad thing to pack. The water is also warmer in the summer, which is when many of the big parties and raves are around the island. It is not a surprise that the summer is the peak tourist season in Ibiza.

Autumn


The autumn weather is nice in Ibiza and will continue to be that way until the winter. It will usually be in the 60’s and often the early fall is the best time to go for the weather and since many of the tourists have left the party scene. Autumn is the rainiest season in Ibiza and while it still does not rain all the time the storms do come, so if you plan on going at this time a light rain jacket and even an umbrella are a must.

Winter

Being in the Mediterranean the winters in Ibiza are mild, but it is still the coldest of all the seasons. The median temperatures will tend to be in the high 40’s to 50’s. While layering is a good idea in winter you really do not need to bundle up, as it is rare for very cold weather on the island. There is moderate rainfall in the winter, but not much. However, being an island, storms can occur and come quickly.
