Winter on Ibiza by Dionne Hiep

Ah, good morning everyone! It's been a while, hasn't it? That's the beauty of having your own blog: you set your own deadlines and no one is breathing down your neck. But today, it's time to treat you to a fresh, cozy WINTER @ IBIZA blog. I want to give you a glimpse into life here during the colder months, including some tips for those considering visiting the island during this period.

Let me tell you, life on Ibiza during the winter is AMAZING. My expectations were different; I thought of a quiet and sometimes gloomy island. Many said the island would plunge into a winter sleep. Partly that's true: the clubs close, the party crowd disappears, and a large part of the hospitality industry goes into hibernation. But, surprise, it's still incredibly cozy here! Local squares buzz at the weekend, there's life in the streets, and some beach bars just stay open. And the sun? It still shines abundantly. That makes the winters here so special. The days are mild, and as long as you avoid the cold mornings and evenings, it's nice without a thick coat.

Ibiza in winter is really recommended. The nature is beautiful, the beaches are peaceful, and the local population brings a whole different atmosphere to the towns and villages. There's plenty to do, even if you don't want to sunbathe or party all day. Being active is wonderful with the cooler weather. Walking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking - the possibilities are endless. And with the cooler weather, it's the perfect time to discover Ibiza in an active way.

Shopping and browsing markets is also a must. The Sant Jordi flea market, Las Dalias, and the Christmas market at Vara del Rey are just a few examples of places where you can find unique treasures. And then there's the nightlife - yes, that exists in winter too! Cozy music and cabaret shows, fun events at clubs, and even big names like Pikes and Lio open their doors for special occasions.

And let's not forget about the food. Many fantastic eateries remain open, even during the quieter months. Whether you're in the mood for a traditional meal or something more international, the choice is vast. And for those lovely walks along the coast, there are plenty of beach bars open where you can enjoy the sun, out of the wind.

In short, there's plenty to do in Ibiza, even in the winter. Whether you live here, are going on holiday, or just want to escape the daily grind, Ibiza has something magical, even when temperatures drop. It's the perfect place to escape the winter blues and recharge with new energy.

See you next time!
