Weather, events and what to wear in Ibiza in December

Come and celebrate Christmas and greet the New Year in a lovely mild climate under a clear blue sky.

In December you can expect an abundance of lovely sunny days. Many restaurants are open up until the festive period and its entirely possible to have a special Christmas lunch outside on a sunny terraced dining area.

There are direct flights from some cities in Northern Europe or you can come via Barcelona or Madrid with a short stopover. Several hotels and apartments are open all year round, from budget to more luxurious options.


Although Christmas is a gentler affair in Ibiza, each town makes an effort and is bedecked with fabulous illuminations. There are several Christmas markets taking place around the island, some only for a day or two, others over the whole Christmas period, like the one in Ibiza Town and the one at Las Dalias.

Each village also erects a marquee where a programme of free entertainment takes place. Some clubs open for New Year or have after parties in the days following. Our magazine will keep you properly informed with our regular New Year's parties' recommendations, usually published mid December.

In San José the programme Cañas'n'Roll rocks weekends all the way up to Christmas with live music, beer and tapas at discounted prices.
