Why hire a car in Ibiza?
Also known as the White Island, Ibiza is a great place to explore. Best known for its world-class parties, Ibiza can also be a good place to explore by car as it will give you access to more than just the touristy parts and you’ll be able to travel to the smaller villages, nature, 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 ferry, you can conveniently pick up your hire car at Ibiza Port. There are frequent ferries from Ibiza Port to the other Balearic Islands as well as destinations on the Spanish mainland like Barcelona and Valencia. Located about 4 km (2.4 mi) from the city centre, 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. Keep in mind: Most ferries permit bringing a car with you, but you should ask in advance (you should also check whether your car hire provider permits it). It’s a good idea to buy a ticket in advance, and normally you need a ticket both for yourself and your vehicle. The service is generally a lot more active during the summer and early autumn months.
- 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 day trips
- 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.
Most popular cars
The most often picked car in the Balearic Islands is the Ford Fiesta, but travelers also tend to choose the Fiat Panda and the Nissan Qashqai. The most popular car types are economy, mini, and compact.
- Mallorca. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is a destination of endless joy and adventure. Many are naturally drawn to the island’s beautiful beaches and busy nightlife, but its attractions also include the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range in the west of the island, as well as cultural highlights like the Picasso and Miro Museum that’s located inside a train station of the town of Sóller. Note: See the ‘Get in’ section above to learn more about taking a ferry to or from Ibiza. Alternatively, there are plenty of short, cheap flights between Ibiza and all three destinations in this section — you can drop off one car in Ibiza and pick up a new one at your next destination.
- Barcelona. The home of La Rambla, Sagrada Familia, and Camp Nou, there are many good reasons why Barcelona is considered one of the most exciting cities in Europe. The capital of Catalonia, it can also serve as a hub for exploring the rest of this fascinating region, not least the wild northern beaches of Costa Brava, the ancient city of Tarragona, and the Catalan Pyrenees.
- Valencia. The third-largest city in Spain, Valencia is also one of its prime tourist destinations. Known for its cuisine (considered impressive even for the very high Spanish standards), the long Mediterranean beaches that surround it, as well as landmarks like the City of Arts and Sciences, it has all the ingredients for an enjoyable holiday.
