The Balearic Islands are pretty windy, especially from October to April, but Ibiza is the most sheltered, being the westernmost one, together with the small and nearby Formentera, from the north wind that blows from France. In summer, sea breezes blow, but they are welcome because they make the heat more bearable.

Winter, from December to February, is mild, with many sunny days, but also with periods of rain and wind. Cold days are rare, and in any case the temperature never drops below freezing.

Summer, from June to mid-September, is typically Mediterranean, ie hot and sunny.

The amount of sunshine in Ibiza is not very good in winter, when Atlantic or Mediterranean depressions can pass, however, there's no shortage of sunny days even in this period. The sunniest period is from May to August, when clear skies are the norm. In September the first Atlantic disturbances occur, so in autumn the sun does not always shine.


The sea is warm enough for swimming from July to September; in June and October it's cool, but overall acceptable.

When to go

The best time to visit Ibiza for a beach holiday is summer, from June to mid-September. For swimming, the best period goes from July to September, although in September, which overall is still a good month (especially in the first half), the first rainy days may occur. May and June are sunny months, but the sea is still a bit cool, especially in May, when it is even a little cold.

April and May are suitable to visit the island and its cities. In October and November the temperatures are mild, but the days are shorter and the weather can be rainy and windy.
