Ibiza in April - Delight in the Spring Awakening

Spring is a fantastic time of year to plan a holiday to a Mediterranean destination like Ibiza. The weather is warm and sunny without any of the intense heat of the summer, the island’s scenery is in full bloom, and even the most popular towns and attractions are relatively quiet.

April is the last month of the low season for tourism in Ibiza, making it an ideal time of year to visit for travellers seeking a quiet holiday on the island but still wanting to enjoy a lot of sunshine. In this guide to Ibiza in April, we share our top recommendations of things to see and do on the island, as well as highlighting the key cultural events taking place over the month.

The Weather in Ibiza in April

Spring is in full swing in Ibiza in April, which means the island starts to experience warmer weather and sees quite a lot of sun. Conditions are still a little cool for spending time on the beach or swimming in the sea, but it’s the perfect time of year for hiking, cycling and sightseeing outdoors.

The average temperature in Ibiza in April is around 16°C, with highs of 19°C and lows of 11°C.  The average sea temperature in April in Ibiza is only 16°C, so it will still feel pretty cold if you’re brave enough to take a dip in the water when you visit.

There are an average of seven days of rain in Ibiza in April, so whilst you might get caught in a shower or two when you visit, you’ve got a pretty good chance of some sunny weather as well. Ibiza sees 10 hours of sunshine a day in April, so it’s a great month to spend time outdoors and enjoy some of the island’s top attractions in the off-season.

Festivals and Events

Despite being at the end of the low season for tourism, Ibiza is still buzzing with events for locals and keen travellers who visit the island at this time of year. Here’s a look at some of the key things happening throughout the month.

Ibiza Marathon

The Santa Eulària Ibiza Marathon takes place in April every year, making the most of the cool but dry weather and promising excellent conditions for runners to tackle the long route around the east of the island. Alongside the marathon, there are also 22km and 12km races taking place, which is ideal if you want to take part but aren’t quite ready to tackle the full 26 miles! Spectating the marathon is still a very enjoyable event, and the whole Santa Eulària area is buzzing on the day.


Easter, or Semana Santa, is celebrated across Spain in the spring every year. Whilst the dates change annually, most years the Easter weekend and the important days leading up to it take place in April, and there will be celebrations around the island to mark the occasion. Expect special church services and parades in some of the larger towns.

La Ruta de la Sal Regatta

The La Ruta de la Sal Regatta is the biggest sailing regatta in Spain, beginning in Denia on the east coast of the mainland and finishing in San Antonio in Ibiza. It’s a regatta open to all kinds of boats and participants come from all over the world to compete and enjoy the beautiful Balearic scenery as they sail through the archipelago. If you’re in Ibiza at the end of the race, it’s definitely worth being in San Antonio to watch the boats arrive.

Vuelta a Ibiza MTB 

Another sporting event that takes place in Ibiza in April is the Vuelta a Ibiza MTB; a mountain bike race that is divided into three phases around the island. If you don’t fancy getting in the saddle and giving any of the courses a go, it’s still a spectacular event to watch with plenty of thrilling moments as riders tackle some of Ibiza’s most rugged terrain.

Fiesta de San Jordi

The Fiesta de San Jordi is Spain’s celebration of St George’s Day, which takes place on the 23rd of April every year. In the village of San Jordi, there are events held in the week before and after the special day, which include live music performances, dance, family activities and food vendors.

The Best Places to Visit in Ibiza in April

Exploring Ibiza is one of the best ways to get a properly authentic experience of the island, and April is a great time to visit some of the most popular places without all the crowds you’ll get in the summer. Here are some of our top recommendations of where to visit in Ibiza in April. 

Sa Talaia

The weather in Ibiza in April is ideal for hiking, and one of the best spots in Ibiza to walk is Sa Talaia, which is the highest point on the whole island. The climb to reach this spot is steep, but the views that you’ll be rewarded with make all of the effort worth it.

It usually takes between 1-2 hours to climb to the top of Sa Talaia, but the route up is relatively easy and doesn’t require any particular walking gear. Whether you make the ascent during the day for the best views or decide to hike in the evening to enjoy the sunset, it’s one of the best spots in Ibiza to properly experience the island’s beautiful scenery.

Es Vedrà

Es Vedrà is an iconic attraction in Ibiza; a 400-metre rock protruding from the ocean that sits just off the coast on the southwest side of the island. It’s rumoured that the rock is the third most magnetic point in the world, and whilst this claim lacks any concrete scientific proof, there’s certainly something atmospheric about it.

The best place to see Es Vedrà is from Cala D’hor or any of the other points along the nearby coast. You can get a great view of the islet from the water as well, whether you take a boat trip out there or decide to participate in a sea kayaking tour.

Ses Salines Natural Park

If you want to make the most of enjoying the outdoors in Ibiza in April whilst the weather is still mild, a great place to visit is the Ses Salines Natural Park. Located between Ibiza and Formentera to the south of the larger island, this protected area of land and sea is a prime spot for Mediterranean biodiversity, home to plenty of marine wildlife and bird species.

The beaches around Ses Salines are renowned for their pristine beauty, but in April it might not be warm enough to want to spend a day on the sand. There’s still plenty to do aside from the beaches however; you can still take a trip to the visitor centre, explore some of the paths around the area, or take your binoculars and go bird-watching.

The Best Things to Do in Ibiza in April

Visiting Ibiza in April allows you to enjoy some of the island’s best attractions outside of the peak tourist season, offering a quieter and more authentic atmosphere. Here’s what we suggest if you’re looking for what to do in Ibiza in April.

Visit the Beach

Unless you get really lucky with the weather towards the end of the month, it probably won’t be warm enough in Ibiza in April to spend a whole day on the beach. However, the island’s coastline is still famously beautiful no matter the weather, and in the spring you’ll have the opportunity to visit some of the best beaches in the area without having to fight to find space on the sand.

Whether you want to enjoy a relaxing walk along the sand or are planning an unforgettable evening watching the sun set, there are plenty of beaches around Ibiza with gorgeous views. If it’s sunny you might want to dip your toes in the water or even sit on the sand to read your book for an hour or so. Whatever your plans, you can make the most of having your pick of the beaches without too many other visitors.

Hire a Bike

The temperature in Ibiza in April provides ideal conditions for outdoor activities, and cycling is a very popular way to spend your time on the island. There is a mixture of flat and hilly routes that cyclists can explore, so no matter your experience or fitness, you can explore the island on two wheels. If you’re thinking about a cycling holiday in Ibiza, the concierge service at Dynamic Lives can help to organise everything involved, from bike here to packed lunches for each excursion.

Take a Boat Tour

Boat parties are a key feature of Ibiza’s summer event calendar, but if you’re looking for something a little more sedate then a sailing tour of the island is a wonderful way to spend a sunny day in April. Explore Ibiza’s coastline by boat, stopping off in coves and at beaches to admire the scenery or even come ashore to explore.

There are plenty of companies that organise boat tours in Ibiza, and by April some of them will be starting to operate trips for tourists that run throughout the summer. Alternatively, Dynamic Lives can help you organise exclusive boat charters for your trip, allowing you to cruise the coast in the comfort of your own private vessel.


Is Ibiza busy in April?

April is considered to be the last month of the ‘low’ season for tourism in Ibiza, which means that it’s certainly not as busy as over the summer. You’ll see more tourists around the island than in the middle of winter, but it’s still a good time to visit if you want to avoid the peak season crowds. 

Are clubs open in Ibiza in April?

The majority of clubs in Ibiza don’t start to open until May, as this is when the peak season for tourism begins and a lot of travellers come to the island specifically to visit the clubs and attend the wide range of music events. Some clubs might open for specific events towards the end of the month, but for the most part, the nightlife in Ibiza in April takes place in the bars and smaller venues that are open to locals all year round.

Are restaurants open in Ibiza in April?

Similarly to the clubs in Ibiza, some of the restaurants around the island are only open during the peak season between May and September and will be closed for the rest of the year. In April, you’re likely to see more of these restaurants starting to open as the month progresses, but your options of where to dine will be more limited than in the summer.


There are plenty of things happening across Ibiza in April, from exciting sporting events to the blooming of all the flowers across the island as spring reaches its peak. Whether you’re planning a trip filled with hiking and cycling, or just want to retreat to a luxurious villa to enjoy some peace and relaxation, visiting Ibiza in April offers the perfect setting for an off-season escape.
