Ibiza in winter
In addition to summer, Ibiza is slowly starting to become more and more of a winter vacation destination. More flights are going and more restaurants are also open.
Ibiza in winter guarantees tranquility. Especially for nature lovers, winter is a must. The temperature is mild and the island is in bloom. Take a car trip and enjoy the green fields and flowers. In late January, the almond trees are in bloom. A magnificent sight! Winter is also called real island life by the locals. Most people work hard all summer in order to relax a little more in winter. Ideal in winter is touring Sa Cova in San Mateu. Juan (the owner) will passionately tell you about the business he runs with his daughter and son-in-law.
In Ibiza, the sun shines about 300 days a year. In November, the average temperature is still 20 degrees. Very pleasant so! From December to March there is an average temperature of 16 degrees, but that doesn’t mean it can’t often get a nice 20 degrees during the day. The sun can still be quite bright, so sunscreen is not an unnecessary luxury. At night, it can get very cold.
Which restaurants are open in winter?
Not all restaurants are open in winter. Below is a selection of our favorites. Of course, more are open, especially in towns and cities.
We think Ca’n Pilot is one of the most underrated restaurants in Ibiza. For little money, you can eat incredibly good food here. There’s just nothing for the vegetarians among us. Open all winter.
A very popular restaurant for years. In winter, this restaurant is open for lunch from about 12:30 to 5 p.m. You sit here wonderfully in the garden among the orange trees.
This is 1 of our favorite spots. Every time a surprise what tapas there are again. Located in Ibiza town.
Winter blossoms in Ibiza!
The almond trees in Ibiza come into bloom at the end of January. In Santa Agnes there are vast orchards where you really have a fantastic view. There are even special buses to take visitors back and forth.
Markets during the winter in Ibiza
Nothing more fun than a market in winter.
The Las Dalias hippy market is open all hair on Saturdays. Opening hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. You’ll find handmade clothing and jewelry, among other things. There is often a band and tasty snacks to buy. There are also Christmas markets here every year in December. Think Christmas gifts, hot snacks and mulled wine. This begins approximately from mid-December to the 23rd. This is at the Las Dalias restaurant. This is open every day, on weekdays from 17:00 on Saturdays from 11:00 and on Sundays at 15:00. Very cozy and highly recommended.
Sant Jordi flea market
The Sant Jordi flea market is open all year round. Opening hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market is at the horse racing track in Sant Jordi. At the traffic circle to the airport and Salinas. A cozy mix of all kinds of stuff.
Explore the island!
Away from the hustle and bustle of the high season, Ibiza looks different. We can highly recommend a hiking trip to Es Vedra. Your vacation home is wonderful, of course, but a good hike is never out of the question. For those who are up for a somewhat pitter-patter challenge, Hidden Atlantis is a great one. There is a walking club in Ibiza called “Walking Ibiza” where you can take different tours of the island.
New Year in Ibiza
New Year’s Eve is a big celebration all over the world. In Ibiza, however, it is very special. Some of the big clubs are open and really unpacking! In 2016, the Lio and the Pacha threw a combined party. A spectacular dinner show with a huge party with Solomun as DJ.
New Year’s Plunge
Several years ago, a group of Dutch people started the New Year dive in Ibiza. It has since become a tradition. Vino & Co provides delicious champagne, wines and appetizers every year. Perfect for getting over your overnight hangover in 1 go. If you are in Ibiza on New Year’s Day, this is not to be missed!
