Weather, events and what to wear on Ibiza in April

While the island's green meadows are festooned with wildflowers, its Easter celebrations show an important part of Ibizan tradition.

In April the whole island is at its most beautiful, with green fields and lots of wildflowers blossoming. In the countryside, poppies start to appear and soon, whole fields will be red with their blooms. April is a lovely time of year to capture Ibiza on camera.

There are some rainy and windy days, but the sun rarely disappears for long. The beaches are still in their natural state, without loungers and with seaweed on their shores. You will probably be able to show off your new bikini on sunny days - and a dip in the sea also is a possibility, though only for the bravest as sea temperatures are still on the chilly side. 

Around Easter already many direct flights are available, and the first hotels and beach restaurants open their doors. April is a great month to visit the island for cycling and walking.


Easter celebrations (dependent on the calendar) are held in Santa Eulalia and Ibiza Town. Over Easter Week, sombre processions set off from the main churches following the services. Locals dress as Roman soldiers, or as penitents. Still more carry the huge religious floats decorated with flowers and a band plays a slow march - it's a real spectacle.

The Ibicine film festival promotes professional cinema on Ibiza, showing interesting short and feature films in the Can Ventosa cultural centre in Ibiza Town.

Over the Easter weekend and in the weeks after the island awakens for a sort of pre-summer season, there are already many events happening in beach clubs, restaurants and hotels. On the weekends, in several smaller clubs you can already head to the dance floor.

And on the last weekend of April the clubbing season starts with the IMS Grand Finale, a legendary open-air party on the city walls of Ibiza Town, and all the big club openings. For this occasion, clubbers from around the globe make a pilgrimage to the island, eager to start the much-awaited Ibiza clubbing summer with a big bang.
