The climate, combined with the availability of activities and the island’s natural beauty, makes Ibiza in December a compelling destination for those seeking a peaceful and enchanting winter getaway.

YES, BUT WHAT TO DO IN DECEMBER?!?

A variety of activities are available during the winter months: winter is perfect for outdoor pursuits such as hiking, cycling, and walking along the island’s quiet, white-sand beaches. This time of the year offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the island’s charming towns on foot, including the historic Dalt Vila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site or discover the island’s traditions and culture, with local festivals and events such as patron saint festivities and the popular wine festival of San Mateu. For those seeking indoor entertainment, options include escape rooms, art classes, and visiting local wineries. Here some suggestions:

  • Wine Tasting and Workshops: Visit SOMM Wine Shop in Santa Gertrudis for wine tastings, workshops, and events, including festive activities like mulled wine evenings and tasting workshops.
  • Creative Classes and Workshops: Engage in creative activities such as art classes, knitting classes, and other crafting workshops, which are often available during the winter season.
  • Museums and Cultural Sites: Explore indoor attractions like the Necropolis del Puig des Molins, Museu d’art Contemporani d’Eivissa, and other cultural sites to delve into the island’s history and art.
  • Indoor Fitness and Wellness: Consider indoor fitness activities, such as yoga classes, or indulge in wellness experiences like massages and spa treatments, which are available throughout the year.

Also, don’t forget that some markets are going on all winter: San Jordi on Saturday, San Joan on Sunday and Las Dalias will be open all the month of December.

But the most amazing thing is walking around, enjoying the silence and the nature.
