We published this article successfully last winter.
Now there are many beautiful news, and we are back!
Ibiza in winter? It’s totally different from the Ibiza you got to know during your Summer holidays, but it’s still marvellous and it’s still magic!
Everything changes on the Island. Forget the crowded beaches, forget the nightlife with its mega parties in clubs such as Amnesia, Pacha and Privilege. Now is the time to discover another island, one that could possibly capture your soul even more than the one that you fell in love with during the summer.
Together we’ll visit Ibiza during winter. We’ll start with the climate and then our trip will take us to the beaches, the nightlife and finally, the social side of the island… So, are you ready?! Let’s go..!!
During Autumn and Winter Ibiza has a mild climate. It’s still possible to go to the beach and enjoy a bit of sun.
During the night, the weather is cold (especially inside the island), but still totally acceptable. Also this year people used to go to the beach till the month of December.
Well, this is a beautiful surprise of the Island. Do you remember the beaches such as Salinas, where you didn’t have the space to put your towel? Well, now they are all there just for you and no, you didn’t arrive on a Caribbean island, you are still in the heart of Europe!

Prepare yourself to also discover Ibiza’s other jewels: from Cala D’Hort, Cala San Vicente, Cala Comte, Cala Jondal (where Blue Marlin is closed, but the Yemanja is still open), to Cala Bassa, Agua Blanca, Portinax and Cala Salada – just to name a few…t hey will appear different, beautiful and be quite deserted.
You’ll love the beaches like never before and you’ll have the opportunity to visit the far sides of the Island without being stuck in traffic and without parking problems.
This is probably the greatest present Ibiza has to offer in autumn and winter!
If you have the time, don’t forget to visit Santa Eularia del Riu, it’s elegant and charming.
The best places are still the same: San Antonio, Cala Comte, Cala D’Hort, Benirras and Punta Galera.
But with fewer people around everything is even more magic. Trust us.
The nightlife, as we have already mentioned, also changes immensely.
Forget Carl Cox, Solomun, Luciano, Martin Garrix, Marco Carola & Music On, David Guetta, ANTS, they are all far away, there are new one protagonists.
The party guide for Autumn and Winter 2016/2017?
At the weekend Pacha is open, still playing excellent music, but during the winter season several excellent local Dj’s play. Usually the entry is free for residents and for summer pass holders till 2.30 AM
Also, the atmosphere, especially during Vintage night by Sebastian Gamboa, Ten by Oriol Calvo and Ibiza Global Showcase, Ibiza Talents is very cool.
