Blissful winter in Ibiza!

                                 

So here we are, fast approaching the end of another busy season for Ibizahire.

When the clubs and bars close their doors, some of you may be wondering what there is to do here from October to April.

Ibiza in the off-season is mostly quiet and peaceful with room to move.

There’s very little traffic, tables are always available in restaurants, and the whole pace of life slows down to something that resembles a snail trying to tow a caravan. In other words….Blissful!

Now that direct flights are back on (Cue thunderous applause!), we thought we’d give those of you that may be toying with the idea of an off-season break in Ibiza a few pointers.

Firstly, that age-old favourite topic of British conversation, the weather.

Winters here are usually very mild.

October, November and most of December are usually blessed with plenty of sunshine. It’s not unusual to see people swimming in the sea in October, although in November and December you may need a wetsuit, or a layer of goose fat to stop you getting a chill!

Late December and January can be quite wet, with regular showers, although when the sun is out it’s still very pleasant.

February to April, Summer is starting to creep up, the sun once again gets stronger and starts to heat the island and before we know it, we’re back into the tourist season again!

In total, we have around 300 days of sunshine each year, so the weather when you’re here will probably be very good, especially compared to the UK.

Now, where to stay?

Although many hotels close for the Winter, there’s still a huge selection of villas, apartments, agroturismos and other hotels to choose from.

As you’ll be here out of season, the obvious benefit is that generally, you’ll be paying a lot less than if you were staying in the Summer, so why not treat yourself to somewhere a little more luxurious?

A few hours spent searching the internet will pay dividends, especially during these difficult economic times, as there are some fantastic offers to be had.

You could even stay somewhere a little ‘out of the way’, hire a car and get to see places most tourists don’t even know exist. Again, cars can be hired online at a much better price for this time of the year.

So, flights, a place to stay and transport are all sorted.

What will you do when you get here?

Well, depending on your personal tastes and whether you’re with the family or not, here are a few suggestions:

Make a picnic, stroll along a deserted beach and eat al fresco

Hike along one of the many well-marked countryside pathways all over the island

Drive out to one of the tiny villages often overlooked during the Summer, such as San Lorenzo or San Miguel. Sit in the sun with a newspaper and a cafe con leche, or just watch the world go by

If you’re here in January or February, take a midnight walk during a full moon and take in the sights and smells of the Almond Blossom in Sant Agnes valley. It really is beautiful!

If you like to dance, then Pacha is open all year round, and in the Winter there’s plenty of room to throw some shapes without a worry!

Walk to the summit of Sa Talaia, the highest point on the island, and admire the spectacular views

Play golf!

Raise a glass or three at the San Mateo Wine Festival. Held during the first week of December in the North-West of the island, you can taste up to 30 different locally-produced wines. (Probably best to take someone with you who can drive to this one. And doesn’t like wine!)

Visit us during one of our MANY Patron Saints days and join in with the festivities. There’s something to interest all of the family.

Singing, drinking, Flamenco dancing, eating, stalls and games, more drinking…..you get the idea!

Go to the Halloween Party at Bambuddah Grove, one of the best restaurants here. Outfits can be hired or bought on the island to enable you to enter into the ‘spirit’ of things!

So, there are just a few ideas as to what can be done off-season.

The pace of life is much, much slower then, so if you’re thinking of coming to party, it’s pretty much Pacha, some bars in Ibiza Town…and that’s it!

But if you want to relax, get some clean, sea air into your lungs and enjoy some Winter sun, then Ibiza has a lot to offer, and at a very reasonable cost.

If you’re thinking of heading our way this Winter, and you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you on the beach!
