Fortunately, if you are lucky enough to have chosen this month to visit, you can be sure there are still plenty of great things to do.

With a full agenda of cultural, musical and sporting events as well as conventions, festivals and patron saint festivities, it's a great month to visit Ibiza. And that's before we even mention any of the wicked parties going on...:)
