Hi there guys,
Am thinking about travelling to Europe during our ( aussie ) winter and was wondering if any of you knew the best time to head to the Spainish Island of Ibitha. If any of you out there would be able to enlighten me on any places to stay whilst there i wud very grateful.
thanks and happy travels
I believe the best time to visit Ibiza is mid June, when they have the official opening parties, through Jule and August when they haev the closing parties.
I may actually be traveling there myself in late june. I have friends who have gone in the past and will be speaking to them shortly to get more info, will try and let you know when I do...
Having been to Ibiza 3 times - part of a mis-spent youth - June will see the opening parties of all the major clubs - Manumission, Pacha etc etc and the closing parties are at the end of Sept.
Are you going there for the clubbing? Staying in San Antonio Town (West End) or i San Antonio Bay can be messy - VERY messy! Lots and lots of teenage Europeans - in various states of disgrace behaving very badly - it is funny to sit on the side lines and watch for an evening but after that its just embarrassing!
Cafe de Mar & Cafe Mambo are theee places to go and watch the sun go down over a beer before the evenings festivities get under way!
I would also recommend hiring a car and taking yourself off around the island getting away from the main tourist centres and seeing the real Ibiza - there are some amazing bays and tiny beaches to be found which are practically deserted!
I went last year. Atip, the prices for accomo go up on Aug 1. Yeah make sure you check out kanya bar or coastline (daytime bars where you drink by the pool)...
But my best tip is if your not going to greek islands look into it, Ibiza is like London in the sun... They are all pommies whearas the greek islands is a massive party with people from all over.
i am heading to ibiza from july 17th to the 22nd.... friends of mine went last year at about the same time and said they had a great time.... they went primarily for parties and clubbing and if thats what you're goin there for, late june is the time to go..... it is the time of all the opening nights and is the most populated...
I also found this great site that might help you decide on when u want to go.... it has a party calender and lets you know who is playing at each club and what events are on over the summer....
As for places to stay... i have no idea on anywhere yet but when i do i will let you know.... also do we need to book in advance for accomodation and if so how long in advance.... thanks
