Ibiza is not just about the nightclubs, the sun and the beaches; there are also many other things to do during the quieter time of year. Given that in winter the island is at its quietest, this is the best time to plan your spring break to Ibiza. Would you like to find out more about what the island has to offer between March and June? Here are 4 reasons to get to know the relaxing side of Ibiza in the springtime!
Discover ‘Dalt Vila’ (the Old Town) without the crowds
Founded by the Carthaginians as a strategic centre of commerce, the passing centuries have made Ibiza what it is today. One of the features of its rich cultural past and the many civilisations that have settled on the island is its Old Town.
‘Dalt Vila’ is the name given to the old part of the city. The charms that lie within the fortified walls facing the port were awarded Unesco World Heritage Site status in 1999. If you would like to explore the Old Town at your own pace, without all the summer crowds, travelling to Ibiza in the spring is a great option.
Gastronomy with a Mediterranean flavour
Gastronomy is one of the best ways to really get to know a place and this island is no exception. If you plan a trip to Ibiza in the spring, you can try a good ‘flaó’ (cheesecake) for dessert and a delicious ‘arroz de matanzas’ (local casserole with meat and rice) or a ‘bullit de peix’ (fish stew) as a main course. Springtime is the best time of year to enjoy these dishes.
Nature at its finest
From its whitewashed villages to its forests of green pine trees, the interior of the island offers numerous attractions. If you long to experience the feeling of time standing still, you must visit towns such as Santa Gertrudis, Sant Agustí d’Es Vedrà, Santa Agnès and Sant Rafel de sa Creu.
A good way to discover these villages and the natural landscape that surrounds them is by hiring a car. Immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of the fields, orchards and farmhouses dotted around the island. An ideal plan for spring is to visit the different towns and villages and enjoy a stroll among the stunning almond, fig and lemon trees in blossom.
Sport in relaxed surroundings
Ibiza in the spring is also wonderful for sports addicts. At this time of year, the sun is at its best and is less overpowering than it is in the summer, making it an ideal time for hiking, mountain biking and other adventure sports such as an invigorating swim.
And, weather permitting, spring can also be the best time of year to go kayaking or snorkelling in the island’s coves. Now that you are aware of some of the treasures of the Ibizan springtime, how about organising your next getaway to the island, with all the pleasures you can imagine?
