Things to do this month on Ibiza | August 2021

The busiest month of the year is upon us - and packed with activities, events and music!

Welcome to August! This month traditionally brings the biggest volume of tourists and the hottest weather. Though summer 2021 is anything but "normal", that doesn't mean fun is hard to find. Quite the opposite.

We didn't think we'd get this far and still have no date for the return of dancefloors. But Ibiza is resilient and the creatives that work here, inspired by the energy the island radiates, have adapted to work with the current restrictions to bring an exciting event calendar.

Aside from that, there's bundles of cultural happenings and daily activities to make the most of the island and maximise your holiday. And if you haven't already, check out our guide on how to survive August.

Palmaram-ic views at Ushuaïa Ibiza

Ushuaïa Ibiza is finally set to open. Its brand new concept called Palmarama, will transform the venue into a lush oasis. Although the format is seated with no dancefloors, best believe that production-specialists The Night League will have you on the edge of your seat.

As for the soundtrack, the line-ups are being closely guarded for now - but expect TNL to pull from its awesome pool of talent and industry friends. The first two shows are confirmed for 31 July and 1 August, but more dates will be announced to fill up the party calendar very soon.

Beach Yoga and Breakfast AT Amante

From Monday to Friday, wellness-minded island visitors and residents have the opportunity to get their stretch on with some of the most beautiful sea views of Ibiza. Romantic seaside restaurant Amante is famous for its stunning vistas all the way across to Formentera, so where better to enjoy a blissed out yoga session followed by a delicious breakfast?

Arrive at 8.30am to take part in the 8.45am check-in and relaxation, before the class begins in earnest at 9am. The session is guided in both English and Spanish, and followed by a healthy breakfast. All of this goodness costs €30 per person - reserve your spot here.

A decade of BLOOP

Art festival BLOOP is in a reflective mood as it hits the ten year milestone. 2021's theme is aptly 'Memory', with us being slap bang in a period that we'll want to forget, but remember forever. BLOOP has always championed that art is for everybody, which is why its exhibits and installations have always been completely free and will remain so. BLOOP runs 4 to 18 August

Date night with live music at Safragell agro-hotel

Acclaimed singer Steffi Vertriest makes her Ibiza-debut, as Eden Events return to Safragell Restaurant in San Lorenzo on Thursday 5 August. The courtyard entertainment will be complemented by a four-course gastronomic meal for €89 per head. We couldn't think of a more romantic setting for that special holiday dinner. It starts at 20:00.

A new theatrical dining experience at 528

The place. The event. The experience. Brand new for 2021 and launching this August, 528 is set to capture the essence of Ibiza and condense it into a rip-roaring dinner show.

Diners can expect a procession of performers, scholared musicians, fantastical costumes and vivid visuals to make the most magical place on Earth that bit more magic. Alongside the show, a five course dinner by award-winning chefs promises to leave guests inspired, astounded and beguiled.

Starting from 6 August and then every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday the rest of the month.
Set your watches for five minutes to eight. Read our preview from the press night.

Visit the Las Dalias Night Market

As one of Ibiza's most popular hippy markets, spending an evening strolling amongst the eclectic and colourful stalls of Las Dalias is a fantastic night out for all the family. You will find plenty of unique fashion, jewellery and home decorations to bring a little piece of Ibiza home with you. 

There are also some street food vendors serving up bites from all over the world, or you could book a table in the terrace restaurant. Las Dalias also hosts regular (seated) music events, featuring both local and international accoustic and electronic music artists. The night markets are on every Monday, Tuesday and Sunday evening in August.

Afternoon G&Tea at Wi-Ki-Woo Hotel

For a fun and quirky take on the quintessential British afternoon tea experience, why not head to the art deco dream hotel Wi-Ki-Woo in San Antonio? 

As well as the classic savoury and sweet bites, guests can sip on a tea pot filled with Mother's Ruin and enjoy two large balloon glasses of G&T in the Instagram-worthy surroundings of the eye-catching abode. 

Tickets cost €55 per person and you can reserve your table here.

Music Box at Es Birra

Beer connoisseurs will love Es Birra, a relaxed and welcoming bar and restaurant specialising in - you guessed it - the hoppy stuff. From ales, ipas, weissbier, and lager to stout, as well as a fab selection of cocktails and vermouth, it's the perfect place to stop by for a cold one.

Their live music offering is varied and ranges from reggae to rock, Brazilian rhythms to an Amy Winehouse tribute act - so there really is something for every taste! It's a great place to swing by after the beach, or to enjoy a chilled evening with friends!

Pikes picks up the pace

We live by the mantra that a holiday to Ibiza should involve at least one trip to Pikes Hotel. Seeing as the original boho-chic hotel has so much going on this month, you'd be silly not to.

Ibiza legend Paco Fernandez is back with his distinct take on flamenco on Tuesday 10 and 24 August, while the quartet of Paul Reynolds, Ben Santiago, Scott Gray and Corbi, otherwise known as Melon Bomb, return with antics on Friday 27 August.

Another colourful date which jumps out is Britta Arnold presents GRRR mit BRRR on 19 August, where attendees must wear pink or green or both! It's all happening at Pikes.

Astrological shower of tears to illuminate night sky

While the annual Perseid meteor show has been happening for a few weeks already, avid stargazers will know the peak always falls in the middle of August. This year's peak takes place on the night of Thursday 12 August, into the morning of Friday 13 August.

Most places in the northern hemisphere will get a partial view, but Ibiza is ideally positioned, and taking place in the skies above the island's countryside and coastline - wow!

If we're lucky with visibility, we could potentially see up to 200 shooting stars in a hour. Pretty spectacular and a humble reminder of just how small we are in a vast universe of wonder. For the best experience, you'll want to find a spot with low light pollution. Luckily, Ibiza has lots.

Sun and Sizzling Beats On W Ibiza's Wetdeck

Boasting some of summer's hottest temperatures, there is no better place to be than close to the water in August. The W Ibiza hotel's stylish Wetdeck pool area offers the food, drink and music for a fabulous day out, and you can access all of it even if you are not a resident at the trendy abode.

For €70 per person, you can book a Wetdeck day pass which includes a sunlounger, a towel, and €50 credit to spend on gastronomy. You can also enjoy a 30% off all treatments at the onsite AWAY Spa.

After a day of lounging like a lazy lizard, why not pop up to the Glow rooftop terrace to listen to some amazing music expertly curated by their roster of international DJ talent?


Festival Brisa Flamenca is back for its 2021 instalment on Thursday 19 August. Flamenco is, of course, the expressive dance and song derived from Spanish folklore. Brisa Singers Estrella Morente (above) and María Terremoto will be on hand to lend their incredible voices.

For the fourth edition, the festival will take place outdoors for the first time, at the Port of San Antonio.

Traditionally, it comes from the Andalusia region on mainland Spain. However, combine this 18th Century artform with Ibiza's sense of flair and wonder, and the result is a dazzling night of music and dance under the stars.

All that jazz - and more - on Formentera

We never need any excuse to go to Ibiza's stunning sister island of Formentera, but if you want one, why not make it this one? 

Visitors to the paradise isle can enjoy a live jazz concert under the stars every Saturday on the Plaça de la Constitució in Es Sant Francesc, just a short 30-minute boat ride from Ibiza Town. 

There are further concerts taking place all over Formentera throughout the week, you can see the full schedule here.
