Weather, events and what to wear in Ibiza in March

Enjoy the first days on the beach and long walks through flowering fields.

In March the sun climbs much higher in the sky; days are longer and temperatures can rise to over 25 degrees Celsius. Sitting short-sleeved on the sunny terrace of a bar, enjoying a picnic on the beach, long walks through lush nature - yes, all of those things are possible. You even have to be careful not to catch sunburn.

With a stronger sun can come some wet periods and some much needed rain, so if you are coming in March, you do need to pack for all kinds of weather, except of course snow. At night temperatures drop considerably and suddenly you are glad to have taken your warmer clothes. It can feel even colder at night time as often humidity can be quite high.

Events

In March Pintxa San Antonio hits the town and is when, in many restaurants, you can enjoy mini tapas or pinchos (tasty bites on skewers) plus a drink for a very reasonable price. The locals bar hop in large groups from place to place enjoying the palpably energetic and infectious atmosphere the event brings. Some venues also offer live music. In the restaurants and bars you'll find flyers with the participating eateries with a mini train usually connecting many of the bars, especially those further afield, plus it's free.

Something completely different comes to San Antonio during this month: zombies! Over one night zombies and the "survivors" throng the streets of the Ses Païsses suburb. Survival Zombie takes place in many cities all over Spain and is an absolutely surreal experience - it's as if a zombie invasion really was happening. Great fun.

At the end of March, Agritourism Atzaró celebrates its Fiesta de la Primavera, which is very popular with residents and holidaymakers alike. Enjoy entertainment for the whole family, from midday to midnight, with DJs and live music, an artisan market, kid's corner and more. Food and drink is included in the entrance fee.

The small village of San José celebrates its fiesta with the party of all parties: Flower Power. Celebrations surround 19 March, the day of Saint Joseph. On one of the Saturday nights before or after the village is bedecked in day-glo colours and the Church square turns into an open-air disco with DJ's and live bands play all night long. Free buses are usually put on to transport people from the major towns with the village becoming a huge outdoor club.
