Ibiza COVID-19 News 2021
Updated – February, 25th 2021
On February 25th, 2021, the president of the Consell de Ibiza, Vicent Marí, urged a “very slow” descaling of the current restrictions here in Ibiza to avoid putting the summer tourist season at risk.
Marí, who appeared at a press conference with the Balearic Health Minister Patricia Gómez, noted that it is “necessary” to move forward earnestly with the vaccine, ready for the summer season, avoiding the possibility of “a fourth wave”, causing a “dire” season.
The latest restrictive measures are highlighted below and are set to be reviewed again within a week.
- Ibiza remains at Phase 4 until March 15
- Bars and Restaurants are to remain closed with take-away options only
- Food collection from outlets can remain open until 22:00 hs
- Home Food delivery orders until 24:00 hs
- Social gatherings remain exclusively amongst members of the same household Curfew remains from 22:00 hs to 06:00 hs
- The perimeter of Ibiza, as well as that of the island of Formentera, will continue to be closed
- Shops remain open with a capacity of 50%

We will endeavour to send out the latest Ibiza Covid-19 News Update next week when the current restriction has again been reviewed.
Updated – February 12th, 2021
If you are considering visiting Ibiza during the season of 2021, we would like to reassure both tourists and second-home visitors that Ibiza is set on a positive path and is looking to remain open and ready to welcome you.
Recently, there have been some unreliable news stories and rumours circulating regarding Spain being closed to tourists next Summer. This is due to a few controversial statements made by the government last month, which we would like to clarify.
In late January the Balearic government ordered the perimeter closure of Ibiza, meaning that travel to and from is restricted to those with justifiable reasons (work & health), which has been extended until March 1st. This is to ensure the island minimises all immediate risks and normal travel is planned to resume as soon as current Covid-19 numbers stabilise and/or decline.
While we can’t confirm if travel restrictions will be extended in the coming weeks, official statements are all pointing towards unrestricted travel for Easter and the spring season. Travelling from within Europe will be possible with a negative PCR test, filling out a simple health form with a QR code at arrival and, naturally, respecting any safety measures and regulations in place.
The general expectation is that we will see a season similar to that of 2020, whereby everyone is welcome and able to enjoy their surroundings, with outdoor activities and social events, such as relaxing on beaches, swimming, sporting activities, eateries, including beach clubs, walking, and exploring the island, continuing as normal. The only main difference compared to pre-Covid-19 seasons, will be the closure of night clubs and large-scale overcrowded venues, including some hotels, which are likely to remain closed (which is what the government was in fact referring to when it made its statements regarding tourism in 2021).
We hope that this information has been useful and we will endeavour to send out an Ibiza Covid-19 News Update once a month, to keep you informed.
