If you are planning a vacation to Spain’s Ibiza island, then it’s probably a good idea to find out beforehand if you are going to need to pack a raincoat and an umbrella.

You’re in luck though, because we’re about to take a look at Ibiza’s climate and weather.

Ibiza is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, roughly 79 kilometers off the cost of the mainland of Spain’s Iberian Peninsula.

Since the island is surrounded by water, the temperature and weather of the island are largely dependent on the temperature of the surrounding water. During the summer, the warm water of the Mediterranean sea contribute to warm, fresh air throughout the days and nights. However, once the water cools off during the winter, Ibiza’s temperatures drop as well

The summer season in Ibiza begins in May and lasts throughout October. The island’s beaches are warmest in May.

From June to September, Ibiza receives very little rainfall. Since the surrounding water is also very calm during these months, this is an ideal location for sailboats.

Ibiza’s winter begins in November, and extends throughout the month of April. The water temperatures get extremely cold, which also causes the air temperatures of Ibiza to drop.

While some of the larger nightclubs in Ibiza will remain open during the winter months, most of Ibiza’s nightclubs will close their doors until the arrival of the next summer.

If you are planning a vacation to Ibiza, and if you want to avoid the crowds, consider visiting Ibiza during the winter when you can usually find cheap flights from JetAbroad. Realize however, that you’ll not only miss out on the pleasant nights that Ibiza is known for, you’ll also miss the nightlife that Ibiza is famous for as well.
