Winter in Ibiza

Many people labour under the illusion that Ibiza is a completely seasonal island, and that when the decadent closing parties have seen the last straggler leave the dancefloor in October, the island shuts down and goes into a deep winter slumber. However, this is far from the truth and in fact with more and more European countries providing year round direct flights to Ibiza, it´s fast becoming a popular destination in the out of season months. Here are just a few of the reasons why, and what YOU can expect to entertain yourself with should you choose to visit this magical island in the low season.

Sunshine!

Ibiza famously benefits from an average of 300 days a year of sunshine, and whilst in the winter months, the temperatures are not as scorchingly hot as in August, you can still expect to be able to eat lunch al fresco, in light clothing, walk along almost deserted beaches and soak up the winter sun, and, if you´re feeling brave, even take a bracing dip in the sea. The weather in Ibiza is one of the reasons so many regular visitors eventually decided to make their home here, as even when we do experience so windy or rainy days, they never last for long, and are actually usually a welcome excuse to hunt out a great movie and have a cosy day indoors.

Socialise!

During the busy summer months, most of the island residents are so busy working and building their businesses, whilst entertaining visitors, friends and family, plus actually trying to squeeze the odd party in here and there, that many of us have little or no time to spend with our friends and family who live here on this island, as they are just as busy as us! So, winter is the perfect time to gather friends together, take long lazy lunches at some of the many beautiful restaurants which remain open all year round, or why no hire a private chef to come and cook in your home, leaving you free to host and entertain your guests.? Simon Johnson who runs Cook Ibiza has a whole range of excellent chefs on his books, himself included, and can tailor-make a menu to your exact requirements. See his website http://www.ibizacook.com/cooking-for-events for more information. Another way to socialise, meet new people, AND improve your Spanish is to join an intercambio class, which is a fun and informal way to chat and interact with people of different nationalities who wish to improve their English and Spanish. Many of these classes are held in bars and restaurants, which to us, sounds much more fun that sitting in a classroom! Abla Ibiza is one of the main organisers of these types of events, see their Facebook page for more information. https://www.facebook.com/groups/570336926389693/?ref=br_tf

Become a Culture Vulture!

The heady days of summer are filled with parties, beach clubs and long days lazing by the pool, however, winter is the perfect time to immerse yourself in some serious Ibiza culture. This relatively small island has a rich and varied history, full of myth, legends and historical battles, dating back to Phoenician and Moorish settlements. You can head to many of the islands’ museums and art galleries to learn more, such as the Ethnographic Museum of Ibiza in Santa Eulalia, a beautifully restored historic finca which is full of interesting artefacts and information of how life was before the holidaymakers arrived. Or take a stroll up through the cobbled streets of the ancient fort of Dalt Vila, built centuries ago to protect the island from marauding invaders and pirates, and here you can marvel at the beauty of the old Virgen de las Nieves Cathedral, or pay a visit to the Museo de Arqueológic (Archaeology) which can also be found on the enchanting streets of Dalt Vila, and is in fact, just next to the cathedral itself. Here you can delight in the ancient relics and archaeological pieces from Sa Caleta, an ancient Phoenician ruin. There are also many pieces of battle armour, weapons, relics and many other artefacts from the, Roman, Carthaginian and Moorish periods.
