Ibiza is one of Spain’s top tourist destinations and one that can be enjoyed all year round – in any season of the year. If you’re planning to visit the island in the colder months, you’ll discover a quieter Ibiza with fewer people but where the temperature is still delightfully warm.
In this post you’ll find 5 great ideas for discovering an unhurried Ibiza at its calmest and safest; the perfect opportunity to experience its true essence.
1. VISIT THE SES SALINES NATURE PARK
Centuries ago, Ibiza was known as ‘the salt island’. The name comes from the Ses Salines Nature Park, one of the most intriguing attractions in the Balearic Islands. Situated between the islands of Ibiza and Formentera, it has been a protected site since 2001.

3. WATCH THE SUNSET FROM THE ‘GATES OF HEAVEN’
In the 1960s and 1970s, northern Ibiza’s hippy community chose a cliff located next to the Pla de Corona meadows, where the locals would go to enjoy the magnificent sunsets against a backdrop of almond groves.
Originally known as ‘Sa Penya Esbarrada’, it soon became known as the ‘Gates of Heaven’ or Ses portes del cel, in Catalan. The viewpoint affords breathtaking views of the stunning sunsets and magnificent views of Ses Margalides islets.
