When is the best time to book cheap flights to Ibiza?

When is the cheapest time to visit Ibiza?
Peak season in Ibiza is mid-June to mid-September. This is when the weather’s warmest and party season’s in full swing.

How do I get from Ibiza Airport into Ibiza?
There are three airport bus routes in Ibiza but only one which runs all year round. Line 10 connects the airport with the Ibiza bus station, the port, and Sant Jordi. The Sant Jordi stop is about a 20-minute walk from Playa d'en Bossa.

What are the top things to do in Ibiza?
The most hedonistic of Spain’s Balearic Islands, Ibiza’s considered the party capital of the world. Once something of a hippie hangout, it’s now home to some of the globe’s best dance clubs, including Ushuaia, Pacha, Amnesia and the relatively new Hi Ibiza. From June to September each year, superstar DJs descend on the island – along with a few million tourists. So, if you’re planning an Ibiza holiday in the summer, it’ll likely revolve around clubbing. Dotted around popular tourist areas like Playa d'en Bossa, San Antonio and Es Cana, you’ll also find luxury beach clubs such as Nikki Beach, El Chiringuito and Blue Marlin. San Antonio’s sunset strip is home to world-famous cafes and bars, like Café Mambo and Café del Mar, and is the perfect place to catch an iconic Ibiza sunset.
Step away from the main tourist drag, though, and you’ll discover there’s far more to this beautiful pine-clad island. There are over 50 beaches hugging Ibiza’s coastline, and you can explore many in one day by hiring a boat. The interior and north of the island both remain relatively undeveloped, while in Ibiza Old Town – the fortified UNESCO World Heritage-listed quarter of Ibiza Town – you’ll find a castle, cathedral and quaint cobbled streets.
Do I need a visa to travel to Ibiza?
