Flight and hotel Ibiza
Discover the Multifaceted Island of Ibiza
Ibiza is an island of two halves: on the one hand, you have tranquil beaches and sleepy fishing villages, with boats swaying in the summer sunshine. On the other hand, since the 1990s the island has been renowned as one of the world’s principal party destinations.
Many famous DJs and sub-genres of electronic dance music have originated from Ibiza, and it still retains its reputation as an excellent place to enjoy late-night revelry. Whatever you’re looking for from a summer holiday; be it quiet walks on the beach with loved ones or parties that go on until dawn, you’ll find it on Ibiza city breaks.
What To Know Before visiting Ibiza?
Ibiza Airport is just a few minutes’ taxi ride from Ibiza Town, and you can find frequent flights to Ibiza from many destinations in the UK. Check out the latest London and Manchester flight deals. Ibiza is part of Spain and so EU citizens won’t need a visa when visiting. The currency is the euro and the main languages are Spanish and Catalan, although the island is very well set up for visitors and you’ll find English is widely spoken.
The time is one hour ahead of the UK. Along with Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera, Ibiza is one of the Balearic Islands off the east coast of mainland Spain, near to Valencia and Barcelona. An Ibiza flight and hotel package is the ideal way to enjoy an action-packed or truly relaxing break in the sun.
When Is The Best Time To Visit Ibiza?
For many, Ibiza weekends are all about the summer. From late May to early October, the island enjoys fantastic temperatures in the 20s and above, and you’ll enjoy endless days of sunshine perfect for lounging on the beach or heading out to party without a jacket. This is also when the main club events are on and you’ll be able to join swathes of fellow revellers on the dance floor.
Summer is also the best time to enjoy waters ports like diving and jet skiing. If you’re not overly fussed about catching high season and want to beat the crowds, then arriving a little before or after those dates is ideal. You’ll still be able to enjoy warm temperatures and perhaps choose to tour the island’s natural beauty. It’s never really cold here though, and Ibiza package holidays can be enjoyed even in winter when the almond blossoms give a glorious show to visitors.

- Join one of the world’s greatest nightlife scenes on the strip in Ibiza Town.

What To Eat In Ibiza?
The Balearic Islands are perfect for producing a number of delicious ingredients beloved in Mediterranean cuisine, and traditionally have a particular focus on breads, vegetables, olives, cured meats like the sobrassada sausage and fresh seafood. The foods of Ibiza are part of the wider Catalan cuisine, which also has a focus on delicious desserts like crema catalana and mató cheese with honey.
Ibiza city breaks are the perfect opportunity to taste some of the best Mediterranean food you’ll ever try. Ibiza Town is an excellent place to find a great range of restaurants, especially if you walk even a little off the beaten path and find smaller neighbourhood eateries. The smaller towns like Sant Antoni de Portmany and Es Canar are also great for trying more traditional cuisine. A good rule of thumb is to look for places filled with locals, not other visitors.
That said, if you’d prefer to eat casually and enjoy the familiar taste of home, establishments in the town centres and the many fast food shacks lining the beaches will fill you up quickly and cheaply so you can get back to having fun in the sun. Ibiza package holidays are also a great opportunity to try local wines. Autumn is a great time to go on wine tours, and you’ll try varieties which aren’t commonly exported to the UK. A jug of sangria or iced tea is great for refreshing yourself over lunch or dinner, too.
What To Bring From Ibiza?
There are a number of excellent gifts to bring back which will sum up a brilliant trip to Ibiza. There are signature products that will delight loved ones, especially those that can’t be easily found off the island. Sobrassada and other sausages like butifarra keep well and so make great gifts for food lovers.
Turrón is a delicious type of nougat confectionery that’s loved all over Spain and is great for friends with sweet tooths. Crafted products like woven bags and sun hats, jewellery made from shells and boat ornaments are other excellent presents to bring back. A bottle of local wine is another easy gift to pick up before heading home.
