Ibiza holidays 2019 / 2020

Ibiza is one of the Balearic Islands, situated off the eastern coast of mainland Spain. The island enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mild winters.

What kind of holiday does Ibiza offer?

Long famous for its nightlife and still considered one of the top clubbing holiday hotspots in the world, Ibiza is currently growing as a family holiday destination too and is really an island of two halves.

Ibiza is a great spot for hiking, bohemian markets, quietly stunning beaches and nature retreats. You can take a boat ride to Formentera, the smallest of the Balearic islands, and enjoy its more sparse surroundings, where seemingly untouched beaches and a backdrop of sand dunes dominate the landscape.

Where to stay in Ibiza

You can choose between the clubbing mecca of San Antonio, the long sandy shores of Playa d’en Bossa, the culture of Ibiza Town or the quieter resorts of Es Cana and Portinatx.  

Ibiza is great for:

  • All inclusive holidays - an all inclusive package deal to Ibiza can offer cheap-and-cheerful, 5 star luxury, and everything in between. Grand Palladium Palace Ibiza offers a full spa and wellness centre for a relaxing break, while the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza is a music and entertainment haven.
  • Weekends and short breaks - Ibiza is a great destination for a weekend dose of sun, a party holiday or a short family trip. You can even book last minute trips to nearby islands to really explore the Balearics. 
  • Cheap holidays - Ibiza can feel like you are in a tropical paradise due to the mediteranean breeze and the hippie vibes abound. However, it won’t cost a fortune to fly to or stay in if you find a cheap package deal.

Ibiza Town is the main cultural hub on the island. It is home to a contemporary art museum and a fascinating archaeological museum that contains finds from across the island. Ibiza is also where you’ll find the widest choice of dance, theatre and music performances. 

Although, hippie culture has been one of the most influential aspects of culture in Ibiza which really came into fruition during the 1960’s. During this time tourism developed on the island which put the two hand in hand. As a result, there are two main hippie markets, one is in Es Cana along Punta Arabi held every Wednesday from 10am – 7pm. The other is Las Dalias in San Carlos on Saturdays.
