How to Get Here - Travelling To And From Ibiza

Information and guide to travelling to and from Ibiza. Includes details on the various types of transport methods including flights and boats. 

The Balearic island of Ibiza has a constantly evolving tourism industry. It has grown to easily become one of the most popular destinations in the world. Since the birth of clubs like Pacha in 1973, Ibiza has seen millions of people pass through arrivals, to enjoy summer in the party capital of the world.

Originally, the most economical way to book an Ibiza trip was through the different tour operators offering package deals. This was not very cost effective, if you wished to break away from the typical week or fortnight all inclusive trip. Luckily the internet became an essential port of call for people looking to book some time away. Direct hotel bookings and much more flexibility with choosing flights has become commonplace. Low cost airlines paved the way for tourists to choose the exact days they wished to travel. Weekend trips to Ibiza even became possible on a low budget.

The future of the island's tourism has never looked healthier. The freedom for choosing your Ibiza flights and accommodation is often cheaper than an inclusive package deal. You will be left with enough spending money to see Ibiza's top sights and venues, without worrying about making the most of an inclusive hotel.

Flights

The ability to 'compare the market' with flights online gives you the opportunity to choose the most economic dates. You can often find flights for around £50, allowing you to put the rest of your budget towards your time away. Websites like Skyscanner compare all airlines prices on your preferred dates. You can decide between the likes of British Airways to RyanAir for what suits you best.

Ibiza has one of the busiest flight schedules from the UK during the summer. Competition between airlines is high. You can even find flights that include a stop in one of mainland Spain's beautiful cities like Barcelona, Madrid or Valencia; which are often cheaper than direct flights.

Arriving by Sea

For a relatively small island Ibiza benefits from having two main ports San Antonio on the West Coast and the main port in Ibiza Town. There are very frequent ferry service to three main ports on the mainland Denia, Valencia and Barcelona and ferry times can vary from only 2 hours on the fast ferry to 9 hours on the slower overnight to Barcelona. For those wishing to further their exploration of the Balearics there are also routes to Mallorca. They offer everything from single foot passenger fares to return packages with your car.

The two main ferry companies are www.balearia.com and http://www.trasmediterranea.es
