Things to do this month on Ibiza | October 2022

More chilled, cooler and still brimming with things to do, October is a great month to visit Ibiza.

After a summer of intense heat, packed beaches and roads, the island enters what many consider to be its best month. In October, residents and workers breathe a sigh of relief, and holidaymakers can enjoy Ibiza and Formentera at their best, with clear light, warm days and cool nights

Fortunately, there are still lots of appealing events going on here, ranging from personal growth, standup comedy and vintage scooter meet-ups to a plethora of great music gatherings, a medieval mariners' market and wholesome outdoor activities.

Then there are Ibiza's legendary closing parties that draw clubbers worldwide for one last glorious bash.

Read our guide below to the very best things to do on the White Island in October and check out our daily updated event calendar for even more activities and events.
