Finally, Spring is in full swing and the island is starting to get back to its buzzing life. Ibiza in May is something special! The weather is changing and it’s the perfect month to squeeze in a cheeky getaway to satisfy that thirst for holiday that’s already kicking in.

So let’s have a look at what makes Ibiza so special in May!


There is no better time to catch Ibiza in a cheerful mood. Not only has warmer days replaced the shower’s of April but there’s also a raft of opening parties to enjoy – from beach restaurants and cafes to some pre-opening of clubs in late May.


May is the perfect time of the year to visit Ibiza before the sweltering days of summer kick in. You can spend some time exploring rather than simply baking on the beach. Visit Ibiza old town to discover art galleries & museums – you can get happily lost in millennia-old narrow streets that seem to go on forever, opening up into plazas built around historical buildings. Or drive around Ibiza, stopping at vineyards along the way to enjoy the local delicious wine.


The season hasn’t officially kicked off in May so wherever you go, to the beach, in the shops or at restaurants, you are assured that is not crowded – you can enjoy each space without being squeezed in or waiting too long in a queue.


May tends to be the month when the first bikinis are spotted on the beach. The sea is still too chilly for most of us to indulge in anything more than a quick paddle, although the bravest ones are starting to take the plunge. If you are visiting Ibiza during this time of the year, we would advise booking one of our villa with heated pool.
