The climate of Ibiza in the summer: from May until October
The Ibiza summer season and the first really warm beach days begin in May. The Ibiza summer is hot and dry - between the months of June and September,
there is very little rain fall. In August and September the temperature rises up to over 30º C, and with water temperatures of 25º - 27º C,
beach fans are right in their element.
What to Wear throughout an Ibiza summer.
- May, June and September - In the evenings when out and about you
might need a jumper or light jacket, especially if the wind gets up.
- July and August - The really hot season starts. You ought to be
fine with t-shirts, short sleeve shirts and shorts. Lightweight cotton
trousers are popular amongst the locals.
- October - pack a jumper and a jacket - best to be sure, as there
are occasional rainy and windy days, when the evening temperature drops
down to 17º C!
The weather in an Ibiza winter: from November until April
Ibiza has a remarkably mild climate - even in winter the temperature rarely drops under 0º Celsius. Snow is a sensation,
and the children save snowballs for weeks by putting them in the fridge!
From November to April the average daytime temperature is about 15º celsius - however when the sun comes out this can rapidly climb to 25º C.
It does rain - but a general rule of thumb is that it only rains for 3 days at a time (at least that's what us locals say!).
The rest of the time the sun shines down from clear blue skies.
Ibiza in Winter is not a beach destination, although on sunny days you will find sun-worshipers on the beach, many of whom still swim!
Ibiza in Winter is more a time for lazy beach walks, sport and touring around the island, stocking up on some well-needed Vitamin D (from all the sunshine!).
The winter on Ibiza is actually sunnier and warmer than on Mallorca, which of course makes a winter break here such a good idea.
If you fancy visiting Ibiza in winter remember to pack some warm clothes, as not all houses and hotels are centrally-heated.
But don't worry, all the rooms of the Ibiza villa rental
have an electric heating system.
In return, the winter guests have the island to themselves - beautiful, deserted beaches with no sun beds or sunshades to spoil the view,
and the wonderful feeling of peace and tranquillity for which Ibiza is so well known.
