If the cold weather and short days are getting you down, let’s try to cheer you up! A great way is to start planning your Ibiza summer holiday, but there are many things to consider when it comes to booking it… If you find yourself puzzling over when is the best time to book your Ibiza holiday, here’s a simple breakdown of what to expect when:
Easter holidays marks the beginning of the season in Ibiza, the island awake from its winter hiatus shaking itself down and preparing for the summer ahead. Direct flights are brought back and the first holidaymakers arrive to the island. It’s overall a very quiet month, temperatures are mild and there are some really cheap deals to be found. It’s the perfect month if you want to enjoy a laid-back holiday, but bear in mind that even if temperatures are warm, the sea is still pretty cold.
May is an underrated month to visit Ibiza, while it gets busier towards the end of the month, during the first couple of weeks it’s very peaceful, with seasonal workers beginning to arrive and a lot of older tourists and families enjoying the balmy temperatures and relative peace before the busy season truly kicks in. While the price of accommodation is usually high during Ibiza’s summer season – May might be a good month to find some true deals, so don’t waste time and have a look at our villas!
June in Ibiza is really when the season kicks in, many venues have already opened their doors and a few are still hosting opening parties – the good thing is that the island still has a lively vibe, but the beaches, restaurants and clubs aren’t completely packed to a point of discomfort yet. Direct flights are in full swing and if you book early enough there might be some deals to be had.
July in Ibiza can be split in two, with the first two weeks not much different to June, while the last two weeks are busier like August… With the majority of European schools, colleges and universities now all well and truly broken up for the summer – expect many tourists flocking to the island, mainly party students, off-duty teachers and tourists who usually take the summer off as holiday time.
August in Ibiza is hot, busy and overall expensive. For many, due to work and study commitments, it’s the only time of the year that they can make it to Ibiza – but there are some nice things about the busiest month of the year in Ibiza: the high temperatures mean that during the evening you can sit outside and enjoy your dinner without needing to wear a jacket until quite late into the night. The streets are packed with people and if you like that buzzy feeling it’s a great time to go and experience Ibiza Town and San Antonio’s sunset strip.
In September you might notice the island taking a big sigh of relief, as it’s really the time when everything starts to calm down a bit. Even if we can still enjoy some pretty warm sunny days, temperatures get a bit cooler in the evening. The world famous closing parties are in full swing and still attract a big crowd but with most of the families and students back to school, it makes it the perfect time to visit Ibiza with a group of friends or your partner and make the most before winter kicks in and tan time is over.

The first week of October marks the end of season, with the last closing parties – then the vibe on the island change. Autumn in Ibiza is something special, while the majority of European countries see their temperatures drop, in Ibiza, you can still enjoy some pretty warm days. The sunsets are magical, the beaches are less packed and it’s even possible to get into the best restaurants without reservations – no stress, no fuss, just pure relaxation and fun in the sun.
