Ibiza is one of the Balearic’s most coveted destinations being a coast- home to some of the planet’s loveliest beaches.

An Ibiza winter holiday may sound like a contradiction in terms but, trust us, winter in Ibiza is magical. The madness of summer totally evaporates, the hedonistic heads depart for parties elsewhere and the summer vacation rentals are vacated. However, to those ‘in the know’, this is a brilliant time of the year to visit Ibiza. Whether a romantic weekend whisk-away, a quiet vacation by the sea or a healthy nature retreat, Ibiza winters rock. Private Villa holidays take on a whole new meaning during the winter months; think open fires, yummy roast dinners, incredible sunsets, a variety of outdoor sports and (honestly) the best parties of the year.

When February half-term comes around, families seek respite from the bleak in Northern Europe  winter. The airlines offer low cost direct flights from the main European capitals, which makes Ibiza one of the most demanded destinations for school holidays. On island there are plenty of places of sun-soaked places to take children.

As mentioned before, Ibiza is one of the Balearic’s most coveted places – and with good reason. Its  coast is home to some of the planet’s loveliest beaches, including the golden strip of Playa Ses Salines  – while the bluffs of Punta Galera and Heaven’s door (Las Puertas del Cielo) offer wonderful photos.

Ibiza’s charm in winter and spring; The well-kept secret. 

Fair enough it’s not sunbathing weather (debatable!) but  temperatures in Ibiza make many outdoor activities much more enjoyable than in the hot summer months. Here’s a peek at some of our faves…

Walking Ibiza have lots of special Ibiza winter walks well worth a look-see, as well as kayaking!

Under new management, Ibiza Golf golfibiza.com ,on the East coast, has 9 and 18-hole golf courses, set in stunning surroundings with the recent addition of a Mediterranean-style restaurant.

Horse-riding is another favorite winter pastime in Ibiza and a great way to discover the beautiful, rustic scenery of the North.  Ibiza Horse Valley Riding,originally created as a centre for abandoned horses, is a non-profit worth supporting. Or perhaps a game of Polo at Ibiza Polo Club would suit, with year-round lessons and tournaments. If you prefer waves to wheels, how about a spot of winter sailing in Ibiza. Beautiful coastline, great anchorages and still-calm weather conditions make the quiet waters a winter delight.

Speaking of delights, Ibiza winter events are a plenty. The ‘any excuse for a party’ rule still applies and a variety of Saint’s Day festivals and musical extravaganzas abound, not to mention the Ibiza Xmas and New Year celebrations! Ibiza winter clubbing exists!

Ibiza markets are a great place to socialise as well as bargain-hunt. Locals collect curiosities and commune over coffee at Las Dalias Hippy Market, in San Carlos, San Jordi Hippodrome, on Saturday mornings, or San Joan and Cala Llenya markets, on Sundays, where live music adds spice to the winter wares. For something totally different (because it is Ibiza, after all), try the Escape Rooms. Code-cracking, interactive fun, designed for adults and bigger kids.  Or off-the-wall fun for dog lovers with the ‘Fun Dog Show’  hosted by doggy groomers, Dressed to the Canines, on December 3rd.

And if that is not attraction enough to don your feather-fringed woolies and get on a plane, you’ll be pleased to hear that Ibiza holiday homes for rent are more affordable during the off-season which means you could even take a longer break and work online from Ibiza.  Why not?! As for the parties… Guess you will have to come and see for yourself…. The perfect winter and spring break holiday destination just got surprising.
