Known for beautiful scenery and secluded beaches as well as for its vibrant clubs and nightlife, Ibiza appeals to travellers of any age. The San Antonio egg and the statue of Jesus Christ at Ibiza Town are just a few of its famous landmarks.
A mild Mediterranean climate with average temperatures of about 30°C in summer and about 11°C in the winter months makes Ibiza an appealing choice at any time, though there is a higher chance of rainfall in January and February.
The 'Ibiza Rocks Festival' runs from the middle of June until mid-September, and the island boasts lots of events and festivals, many of them part of the electronic dance scene, throughout the year.
It's worth booking car hire early, particularly for July or August as demand can be high.
Although Catalan is the official language, Castilian is the most widely spoken. Most people also speak some English but will appreciate travellers who take the time to learn a few basic phrases in Spanish.
As a general rule, living costs in Ibiza are lower than in the UK, and it's well worth picking up groceries from local markets where exceptional value for money is standard.
Taxis from the Airport to Santa Eularia cost approximately EUR 30, while it is about EUR15 for the shorter journey to Ibiza town. The number 10 bus takes about 10 to 15 minutes to make the trip from the airport to Ibiza port and is a budget friendly option at approximately 3 EUR. Accommodation is available to suit any budget, with basic hotels costing from about EUR 10 per night for one person. Expect to pay about EUR 100 per night for two people sharing a room in a 3 star hotel.
Ibiza Town is fairly compact and is certainly small enough to explore on foot. There are lots of buses between the main cities and resorts, and a single ticket should be around EUR 1.60. The fare is not likely to exceed EUR 4.50 even on longer journeys. During the peak season months many of the most popular resorts can be reached directly by bus from the airport. The famous Ibiza night bus or Discobus covers all the most famous bars, clubs and hotels in the bigger resorts throughout the night, and fares are likely to be around 3 EUR.
