When to go

May, September or October are perfect, although in summer you can find uncrowded beaches on Formentera and the north coast. The opening and closing parties in June and September are highlights of the clubbing calendar.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Ibiza airport is about five miles southwest of Ibiza Town. If you’re not hiring a car, taxis from the rank outside the airport are metered and reasonable (around €10 for the trip to Ibiza Town). There are lots of flights in the summer; far fewer in winter.
  • Boats

    Ferries to Barcelona (4hrs), Valencia (3hrs), Denia (2hrs) and Palma (2hrs) run regularly; see for more details. The ferry to Formentera takes 25 minutes.
  • Trains

    There’s no railway system on Ibiza, although the Ibitren, the mini funfare-style train that departs from San Antonio and Santa Eulalia can be an amusing way to relax and while away a hungover afternoon.
  • Automobiles

    Driving can be a real pleasure here with good signposting and some great coastal roads. The drivers are not half as scary as their reputation makes out either. Go off-road in the northern pine forests with a 4x4.
  • Taxis

    Try to use licensed taxis. You can flag them down if their green light is lit; prices are metered and reasonable. Get your hotel to book for you when possible.
