Why hire a car in Ibiza?
Also known as the White Island, Ibiza is a great place to explore by car. Having the freedom of your own ride will let you see more than just the tourist parts and travel to smaller villages, nature areas, and secluded beaches of the island.
Top ways to enter Ibiza
- Ibiza Airport. The only international airport on the island, it handled more than eight million travelers in 2019. The airport has flights by more than 30 different airlines, although most companies only operate seasonally; during the low tourism season, there are flights to Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, and other Spanish destinations. Located about 6 km (3.7 mi) southeast of Ibiza Town, the airport can be reached in 7-10 minutes.
- Ibiza Port. If you’re arriving in Ibiza by a ferry, you can conveniently pick up your rental car at the Ibiza Port. There are frequent ferries from Ibiza Port to other Balearic Islands as well as destinations on Spanish mainland like Barcelona and Valencia. The service is generally a lot more active during the summer and early autumn months. Most ferries permit bringing a car with you, but you should ask in advance (you should also check whether your rental car provider permits it). Located about 4 km (2.4 mi) from the city center, Ibiza Port can be reached in seven minutes. There is also a passenger port in San Antonio Abad, about 16 km (10 mi) northwest of Ibiza Town.
Useful city facts
- Ibiza has a Mediterranean climate with semi-arid influences. The average high temperature on the island is 30.3 °C (86.5 °F) in July, the hottest month, and 15.7 °C (60.3 °F) in January, the coldest. The precipitation is extremely low in June and especially July, but increases from September until December.
- The two native languages of Ibiza are Spanish and the Balearic Catalan. There are also many native English speakers living on the island, and the language is also understood by many Spanish speakers. Additionally, many people also speak German, Dutch, French, and Italian.
- Inhabited for more than 2,600 years, Ibiza was first settled by Phoenician sailors and became a colony of Carthage. An ancient shrine to the Punic lion goddess Tanit has been found on the island. Later held by the Romans, Vandals, and the Byzantine Empire, the island maintained a large degree of autonomy until the 18th century when King Philip V made it a more integral part of Spain.
Top destinations and activities
- Beaches. Obviously, Ibiza is first and foremost known as a beach destination. Some of the hidden gems across the island include the Cala Olivera Beach, the Sol d’en Serra Beach, and the Cala Xarraca Beach, while restaurants around the Cala Mastella Beach boast about having the best seafood.
- Nature. Thanks to its beautiful and varied nature, Ibiza is a UNESCO World heritage site. Some of the best places to observe its natural beauty are the Es Amunts Natural Park, the Ses Feixes Wetlands, and the Las Salinas Nature Park.
- The clubs. Ibiza is world-famous for its nightlife. If partying is your thing, some of the nightclubs you’ll like to visit are Privilege, Space, Pacha, Eden, Amnesia, and Es Paradis.

Ideas for a day-trip
- Atlantis. The hidden cove is a fascinating and mystical destination, but locals keep its location secret, so you’ll have to convince someone to show you the way. If the negotiations are not working out, you can still drive to Cova de Can Marçà in Puerto de San Miguel, the biggest natural caves in Ibiza.
- Es Vedra. The small and uninhabited rock island near Ibiza’s south-western shore has caught the travelers imagination for centuries thanks to its unique shape and many legions that surround it. The only permanent inhabitants of the rock are Ibiza wall lizard and Eleonora’s falcon.
- Formentera. Just south of Ibiza, the island of Formentera can be reached by a boat and is a great beach and culinary destination that’s more relaxed than the larger Ibiza.
