Discover Ibiza in Winter: A Guide to Off-Season Wonders

Ibiza is a different island during the winter off-season. Compared to summer, you’ll experience much more relaxation and an entirely different crowd of people – it’s really the best time to see the island’s natural landscapes and sunsets. In fact, Ibiza in winter delights all the senses, offering its more authentic and inherent aspects. 

The island’s off-season also lets travellers enjoy its local charm and captivating community and heritage. Fortunately, there are many sunny days, and the temperatures are usually very pleasant, making it possible to enjoy a few beers in the sun, join the local community events and explore the island’s social scene.

Read on to discover what to do in Ibiza during the winter and why we love it! 

What to do in the Winter: Ibiza’s Natural Habitat 

A stroll along in absolute solitude is always a delight, and nothing beats Mother Nature. A refreshing walk through Ibiza’s countryside, along its coastline or overlooking the glorious winter sunsets is always best when there are fewer people, and the air is cooler.

The Beaches and Hidden Coves in Ibiza

At the very top of our list, we recommend visiting beaches such as Las Salinas (Ses Salines) and Es Cavallet (here you can walk between both beaches, passing by the Torre de Ses Portes), Playa d’en Bossa or Platges d’en Comte. 

Yet, Ibiza also has plenty of hidden coves that are suitable for active travellers who are interested in the journey as well as the final destination. These idyllic coves are most enjoyable for relaxing and enjoying a picnic after a long hike. Here, you can discover many charming coves and spots along the coast, such as Cala d’Albarca, Es Portitxol, Cala Llentrisca and Punta Galera.

Over the winter, it is more than possible to find many of our beaches lined with large quantities of algae. There is nothing unusual about this –– it’s part of the remains of Posidonia Oceanica, the world’s largest living plant between Formentera and Ibiza. These meadows have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Their oxygenating action on the water makes the Pitiusas Islands’ sea clean and crystalline. 

The Campo and Hiking Opportunities in Ibiza 

Nothing is more rewarding than walking the lush, golden countryside, a road less travelled but very rewarding. There are several areas worth exploring, including farmlands and places of interest. Sant Agnes’ almond blossoms are particularly beautiful during the winter season. Generally, the season lasts from the end of January to mid-February and is the most magical and special time of the year. These days also herald the arrival of spring on the island.

There is a great variety of hiking and walking options to participate in, from the hills of Sa Talaia, the highest point on the island with outstanding mountaintop views, the hills of San Juan, the natural springs of San Mateo, and the village of Santa Inés with its unique land, captivating beauty and sanctuary of cultivated almond trees; an exceptional sight and a truly preserved part of the island.

Exploring the island through various hiking and touring companies is similar to navigating the diverse gaming landscape at Fair Go Casino Log In. Just as Ibiza offers numerous routes for all levels, Fair Go Casino provides a range of games to suit different player preferences, all easily accessible with a simple login, much like downloading a route from the Ibiza Tourism website.

The Glorious Winter Sunsets in Ibiza

A little cloud in the sky over the winter months actually enhances Ibiza’s sunsets, which are even more spectacular than usual. Moreover, the sea and the sky have a much wider spectrum of colours in winter, and the sunsets are more attractive. If you are unfamiliar with Ibiza sunsets, we recommend checking out Es Vedra from Cala d’Hort or up on the cliffs, Cala Comte, Benirras, and even Talamanca for a rather unusual pink sky.

What to do in the Winter: Cultural and Community Attractions

You’ll find plenty of cultural and social experiences to keep your Ibiza winter filled to the brim. Ibiza is renowned for its rich cultural heritage and history, unique and lively artisan markets and great community events.

Dalt Vila, the Old Town and Ibiza’s City Centre

The walled city of Dalt Vila is located in the city’s centre. The best way to experience the town is by wandering its cobbled streets and getting lost among them. During the summer, it is too hot to climb to the top where the monument castle and cathedral reside –– but in winter, it is a delight to discover the many viewpoints overlooking the city, the sea, and Formentera that can be found at various locations. You won’t want to miss the stunning architecture and views this UNESCO World Heritage Site offers!

Ibiza’s Street and Hippie Markets

Street markets are charming places to shop and are one of the most interesting things to do.  Various markets, including Sant Jordi market, are interesting places to look for second-hand items. Aside from regular sellers of clothes, costume jewellery, music or books, you can also find plenty of sellers with antiques and collectable jewellery. We also recommend the famed Las Dalias hippy market. At Christmas time, this market puts on its most impressive stalls, welcoming local visitors from all over the island. Sa Forada Market is likewise worth visiting. This market is frequented by locals, and you have lots of local fruit, vegetables and local products. 

The Villages of Ibiza

Many white villages dot the island’s interior, imparting a dreamlike quality to the island. Each has little local bars and restaurants where you can find some of the island’s finest and most typical specialities, including fresh seafood, Jamons, and bocadillos. A leisurely stroll around any of these villages, watching the true local spirit, or sitting on terraces with friends and family is the most idyllic way to experience the island’s authenticity.

Santa Gertrudis is one of the most popular villages to visit, with much atmosphere and vibrancy. This traditional village is architecturally styled to perfection, with a recently renovated main square plaza filled with traditional bars and restaurants, such as  Macao Cafe, Bar Costa, Musset, and Can Mimosa and a central white and yellow decorated church with matching surrounding lined streets of beautiful terrace housing and apartments –– a much-recommended visit!

Bar Costa Santa Gertrudis

What to do in the Winter: Fiestas, Parties and Restaurants 

In Ibiza, a ‘fiesta’ way of life is different from the usual party culture you may experience in the summer. Ibicencan culture is notorious for getting festive regularly, whatever the occasion. There are a variety of activities in different villages on the island most months of the year. These festivities often involve market stalls, live music, parades, fancy costumes, sports, competitions, and folk dancing.

Don’t forget the options are still plentiful if you’re looking for that typical Ibiza-style party or something different and more social. Various day events, parties, and club nights are held regularly at Las Dalias and Akasha throughout the year. The Standard Hotel Ibiza is booming with Bingo players every week, and restaurants like Yemanja, Juntos Farm, Club Nautico, and La Escollera are thriving with locals all year round.

Savour the flavours of Ibiza’s unique gastronomy, from the traditional Sofrit Pagès at the local restaurants to the delightful Salsa de Nadal, a Christmas dessert made with sugar, almonds, and chicken stock. Explore a diverse array of culinary delights. Whether it’s a Flamenco Night, a laid back Tapas lazy afternoon in Santa Gertrudis or a Middle Eastern Fusion Brunch, Ibiza’s culinary scene promises to elevate your festive experience:

    Professional Home Evaluations in Ibiza – Everything You Need To Know Before Selling Your Property in Ibiza

    It can be a testing and complex process to sell a home in Ibiza. Nonetheless, if you work with a knowledgeable agent, you can maximise your chances of a successful, hassle-free sale.

    Selling a home in Ibiza takes an average of 10 months. However, there are many things you can do to speed up the process with a little strategic planning and smart thinking.

    Here is a guide to help you navigate the process of home evaluations and everything you need to know about selling your property in Ibiza.

    Selling Property in Ibiza and Home Evaluation

    Is it time to choose a reliable agent to sell your Ibiza property?

    You might wonder if you even need an estate agent to sell your Ibiza property – and the answer is: No, you don’t – but you’ll wish you did. It’s not difficult to put up a sales sign and list your property on online portals such as Fotocasa and Idealista. However, working with a professional real estate agency with the right skills, knowledge, and infrastructure will make the whole process much easier – especially when completing a reliable evaluation of your Ibiza home.

    You need to find a reliable Ibiza real estate agent to understand the local market dynamics. The demand for various properties, local valuation trends, and factors currently influencing the market, like seasonal fluctuations and increased peak activity, will all be under the belt of an experienced, knowledgeable and trustworthy agent. The best realtors will also take into consideration a property’s legal situation, its location, its immediate surroundings, its age, size, plot, and condition, as well as its style, amenities, and views. In addition, they can offer advice on how to prepare your property for an optimal sale, highlight unique features for increased value, and market it effectively.

    Selling Property in Ibiza and Home Evaluation

    Getting ready to sell your home in Ibiza and preparing for an evaluation 

    Getting a real estate expert to assess your property’s real market value can help you set a realistic sales price, prepare your property to an optimal selling standard, and sell more quickly. 

    When a realtor visits your property for a valuation, he or she will conduct an inspection to identify any potential issues that may surface during the buyer’s viewing and to forecast a realistic and competitive price for your property. 

    An experienced real estate agent knows how important presentation is for marketing your property effectively and can offer the best advice on how to portray it. Taking these simple steps will optimise your property’s chance of a decent valuation and quick sale:

    1. (un)Dress the home – remove all personal items, declutter and leave it as minimalistic as possible; add mirrors and plants; redecorate in neutral colours; have it as light as possible; remove any signs of pets or sources of unpleasant smells.
    2. Do the repairs – address any minor repairs or maintenance issues. A well-maintained home is more appealing to buyers.
    3. First impressions matter – ensure your home’s well-maintained exterior, with trimmed lawns, clean driveways, freshly painted façades and attractive landscaping.
    4. Professional photos & videos – Market your property well: have the most impressive presentation by taking the highest quality possible photos and videos to promote your property in its most appealing light (this is often included in the service of a professional real estate agency, especially when you sign an exclusive sales mandate).

    Knowing the legal requirements and having your property’s documentation prepared will ensure that things will run smoothly and fast, with no unpleasant surprises either for the buyer or yourself. 

    The following is a summary of the information required from the seller in preparation for the signature of the title deed (and ideally already in preparation for placing the property for sale so that potential buyers can have quick answers to questions related to the property’s documentation). 

    Ideally, you will have: 

    • The Title Deeds to the property
    • Cédula de Habitabilidad (Valid)
    • Licencia and/or Final de Obra
    • Receipts for the local municipal property tax (impuesto sobre bienes inmuebles or IBI)
    • Copies of latest utility bills
    • Details of the community statutes (for apartments and gated communities) 
    • A list of any items of furniture, etc, which will be included in the sale
    • Your residencia card if you have residency status or NIE
    • An Official Energy Certificate (Certificado de Eficiencia Energetica) 

    All these documents will help us understand your property’s legal situation, which will both help and impact the valuation process.

    For a full list of the legal requirements and documentation needed to sell your property, check out Sellers Guide: How to Sell Your Property in Ibiza 

    Getting a Realistic and Fair Evaluation for Your Ibiza Property

    In our role as professional real estate agents in Ibiza, we will compare your property with properties that have been SOLD within the last six months with similar attributes. Market prices are always based on final sales prices. We never compare with properties that are still for sale. A slightly higher price can be tested first and adjusted if needed depending on the owner’s personal idea or timeframe. Keeping a bit of a negotiation margin in mind is also a good idea since clients often like to haggle –– but being open to what the market is willing to offer is always recommended especially if you want things to move faster and not drag on endlessly, risking also that your property will lose its value over time due to overexposure on the market.

    Are you ready to sell your Ibiza property?

    At Prestige Properties Ibiza, our extensive experience in the local market will help you find the right buyer in no time at all. We can confidently sell your home with great satisfaction. 

    Our team is always ready to help you with your seller’s journey and will ensure you get the best opportunities with us, so why not get a free valuation with us today?

      Las Salinas (Ses Salines) - buy a property in Sant Josep

Those who find a home in these areas are incredibly lucky to reside in an unbeatable up-market and affluent area.

Located at the foot of striking cliffs typical of this area are three little coves separated by rock formations. The pebbled beaches and crystal waters entice one to bathe among the rocky sea bottoms where divers can discover countless interesting corners. Es Cubells’ cliffs are renowned among hikers and nature lovers for its spectacular views from the top.

        Is Ibiza a good place to buy a property?

        Is Ibiza a good place to buy a property? The property market in Ibiza has always been reliable. There is no denying that our island’s real estate market has seen a significant influx of residents and foreign buyers, particularly in the luxury segment – and it has undoubtedly become one of the world’s top property hotspots. 

        Its idyllic location and high property demand have made Ibiza a safe investment for quite some time. As the current market stands, investing in a home in Ibiza makes for a secure return on investment, irrespective of whether it is residential, a second home, a villa for tourism rental purposes, or an early project phase property.

        In light of Ibiza’s vibrant property market, we are excited to share our latest market update showing why Ibiza remains a great investment.

        The island of Ibiza is not only an attractive investment but also one of the most sought-after locations in the world. Known for its pleasant climate year-round, natural environment, and extraordinary lifestyle, our island has much to offer. Our island’s picturesque beaches and sunsets, social networks, events, and laid-back lifestyle continue to attract many home buyers seeking a place in the sun where other international and cosmopolitan communities align. 

        Moreover, our island draws in many remote workers and entrepreneurs who can work from anywhere – including those with children due to its quality schools, natural surroundings and level of safety.

        Many visitors from afar are impressed by its increasingly easy international connection (not only direct from London, but direct flights from New York to Mallorca are now available, allowing you to reach Ibiza in approximately 8 hours), making travelling to and from Ibiza much simpler and more enjoyable.

        Prestige Properties presents Ibiza’s Luxury Housing Market 2022/2023

        Soon, we will be taking a look at the housing market statistics once again as we enter the last quarter of 2023. Yet, as far as we can predict and according to our internal insights, we have continued to rise since our previous audit. 

        Our 2022 annual market report and 2023 forecast shows that Ibiza’s real estate market has always been more resilient than our neighbouring Islands and Spain’s mainland. Ibiza’s luxury sector has experienced a considerable upturn since 2020 compared to our peers. 

        Our Prestige Properties Ibiza’s sales data for 2022 show the following:

        • An overall 10% increase in price per square metre between 2020 and 2022 across all areas on the island
        • Our sales volume doubled between 2020 and 2021 – and remained stable throughout 2022
        • An 87% rise in enquiries over the past two years
        • A drop of around 50% in (published) listings (suggesting a high demand versus low supply market)
        • 58% of our buyers purchased a property as a second home

        For our Full Market Report and more statistics, please visit our 2022 Annual Ibiza Property Market Report and 2023 Forecast.

        Overall, following the main boom of 2021 (which saw even higher numbers than the pre-covid highs in 2017), the market remains steady and continues to rise. With fewer sellers on the market, property values are predicted to increase as the race against a low supply continues, making this a good time and Ibiza a good place to buy a property.

        Ibiza Real Estate Properties for Tourism and Rentals

        Ibiza generally continues to grow, especially in the hospitality and tourism sectors, making it a premium place to travel. Due to this growth, housing and infrastructure demand has also increased, making it a good destination for those looking to buy a property for tourism purposes.

        Buying an Ibiza property with a current tourist licence is the ideal situation. The application process and legal certificate will already be completed, and, what’s more, regular tourism customers are likely to return to this same property and book their holidays year after year. Buying a property for tourism is a win-win situation. This type of investment will likely be fully booked year after year as the tourism industry is booming and its prestige VIP status continues upward.

        You can learn more about purchasing a property with a tourist licence or obtaining your own in our guide entitled How to Obtain a Tourist Rental License in Ibiza.

        Ibiza’s Real Estate Market for Long-Term Residents and Families

        Our island’s relaxed lifestyle and tranquil environment make it a popular destination for long-term residents, families, and professionals (young and old) who can work remotely. Those who can afford it will naturally prefer a purchased home over long-term rentals (which are also challenging to find). 

        The island is experiencing a sensational rise in interest as internationals and families become more active in their purchasing journeys, resulting in an increase in prices, a decrease in supply, and an increase in demand.

        So, is Ibiza a good place to buy a property and is now the right time?

        Overall, one thing is for sure: You’ll have a better chance of getting a decent return if you buy a property in a highly valuable location, highly sought-after and in constant demand. And, yes, Ibiza is most certainly one of those places!

The restaurant is ideally located close to the quaint and charming village of San Lorenzo, alongside an orange tree orchard.

          In one of the most picturesque locations on the island of Ibiza, El Carmen Restaurant is situated in a place that can only be described as magical  – facing the sea in front of the islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell.

          Cas Pagès – San Carlos, Ibiza

          As one of the island’s oldest restaurants, Cas Pagès was established in 1972 by Carmen and Lucia Pagès. This small restaurant on San Carlos Road has served grilled meats and homemade dishes for over 50 years. They offer a variety of great rice dishes to their guests, including their famous "arroz de matanza", a delicious rice dish that contains the finest pork cuts available, and the "sofrit payès", which consists of lamb and chicken with sobrasada, potatoes, toasted almonds, and various herbs and spices. This menu is both wholesome and filling.

          El Bigote – Cala Mastella, Ibiza 

          El Bigote is a beach-shack-style, no-frills restaurant with a view of Cala Mastella’s picturesque cove. The local restaurant is so popular that the King of Spain was allegedly turned away because he didn’t have a reservation. Reservations here are often months in advance, and there’s no answer on their mobile phone. It can take hours or even days to get through, so it is usually advised to drive there to reserve a table. Here’s where our Concierge Services can help you ensure your reservations are secured! 

          El Bigote only serves a minimal menu of authentic dishes – bullit de peix (fish cooked in saffron with potatoes) and rice cooked in fish broth. This authentic restaurant experience is worth the trek.

          Restaurante Salvadó – Pou des Lleó, Ibiza 

          Salvadó Restaurante is a historical place on a boat dock where fishermen sold fresh fish. They’ve been running a family business for over 30  years with classic recipes passed down generations for you to enjoy from one of the island’s most authentic spots. This is a secret corner where you can experience the original flavour of the island in its purest form. 

          Salvadó Restaurante serves a wonderful array of seafood and fresh fish dishes, but we would highly recommend the traditional dish Bullit de Peix and Paella. It’s one of the best on the island!

              Treat yourself to a relaxing massage at your Ibiza villa

              A good massage is something we all enjoy from time to time. There are, of course, many benefits to massage that go beyond pampering and treating yourself. Besides promoting relaxation, massage also reduces muscle tension, improves circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, reduces stress hormones, increases joint mobility and flexibility, improves skin tone, and promotes soft tissue recovery.

              So why not have breakfast in bed, take a light swim, and book a well-deserved therapeutic massage whilst on your Ibiza holiday – your body will truly appreciate it.
