Discovery of the White Island: Ibiza in the winter months

winter sailing in Ibiza

It’s always a good idea to rent a boat in the Balearic Islands.  All year round, tourists flock to this Mediterranean archipelago, chasing the wonderful weather for the opportunity to extend their summer. Most people prefer to visit during the summer. However, you can get a more authentic experience once the tourists go home.  This is why we recommend visiting Ibiza in the winter months of November or December.

Ibiza boasts a wide range of cultural and sporting activities, a rich and varied cuisine, and breathtaking, almost deserted beaches. These are just some of the wonders awaiting you during these months.  Furthermore, with boat hire in Ibiza, you can easily sail from bay to bay, discovering a wealth of secrets along the way.

Sail between a plethora of uncrowded beaches

boat rental IbizaWith November and December comes the arrival of the low season. Moreover, this is characterised by fewer tourists at all the most beautiful beaches.  Take advantage of the reduced number of people to visit the island’s charming coves in a completely different. Catamaran rental in Ibiza gives you this unique opportunity to enjoy a different kind of trip. But without compromising on comfort and luxury.

From Cala Salada to Cala Bassa and Cala Comte, we guarantee you will be left speechless!  If you want a slightly different adventure at sea, you can look for a different type of boat rental.  With a sailboat, for instance, you can enjoy the feel of the breeze on your face and the sun on your skin, while admiring spectacular views.  No matter what sort of adventure you want though, you will definitely find a boat suited for your needs.

Get to know the island from a variety of different perspectives

If you are a sports enthusiast, Ibiza is definitely the place for you! Here you can cycle and hike to your heart’s content. Travelling to Ibiza in November allows you to try all the best hiking and cycling routes without suffering under the scorching summer sun or fighting through crowds of tourists.

No matter where you go, there is plenty to see.  The lighthouse of Faro de Mocaster, better known as Faro de Portinatx, the mountain Sa Talaia, the highest point of the island, and the route from San Antonio to Cala Salada are a couple of the best options available to you.

If you decide to hop on your bike, some of our top recommendations include the Camí Vell de San Rafael, Santa Gertrudis (one of the most beautiful villages in Santa Eulalia). Or if you’re a little more experienced, cycle down to the Morna Valley, where you can view the most authentic natural landscape on the island.

Appreciate the charm of the picturesque villages

Ibiza is perfect in winter



Ibiza is home to some positively delightful villages, which ooze appeal.  A few of the highlights include the charm and tranquility of Santa Eulalia del Río, the stunning views at the tiny Es Cubells, and the beauty of Santa Gertrudis’ streets.

Sampling Ibiza’s local dishes is always a good idea.  Due to its island status, there is an abundance of fish dishes. This includes fish stew, which can be prepared with grouper, scorpionfish, salmon, shrimp, lobster, monkfish, and many others, along with potatoes and a good stir-fry.  We know you won’t be disappointed.

Experience the culture

Although Ibiza is known primarily for its beaches and parties, it is actually so much more.  Exploring the old town, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its beautiful historic streets, is always a treat.  Even though there are 5 entrances, the Portal de Ses Taules is the most important. It is also the one we recommend, being located right in front of the Old Market.

The cultureYou can also visit the Patio de Armas, filled with craftsmen and musicians, and the Plaza de Vila, where there are many fantastic restaurants where you can take a break.  From here, you can visit the church of Santa Maria de la Nieves, the main cathedral of Ibiza!

Your adventure doesn’t have to stop in Ibiza either.  If you have time, how about taking a quick trip to the neighbouring island of Formentera with your boat hire?  The turquoise water mixed with the perfect blend of life and tranquility is just a couple of reasons to visit this island during your holiday.
