Fall for autumn 2019 in Ibiza

Summer is far from over in Ibiza, with some of the best parties of the season still to come. However, if you're keen on a quieter island break, autumn is the time for you.

As the leaves on the trees and vines start to change from green to russet red, the last of this season's grapes are harvested and Ibiza's summer season slowly starts turning towards autumn and winter. It's a great time of year to visit the White Isle as the hustle and bustle of the busiest time of year starts to slowly peter out but there are still plenty of things to see, do and taste on a trip here in autumn.

So, if you want to explore the White Isle without the crowds, now is the time to come.

Outdoor adventures

Cooler conditions after the strong heat of summer make it much more pleasant to get out and about on the trails and roads at this time of year. However, Balearic autumns are far from the cold and wet seasons of northern Europe. In fact, this year the Spanish Meteorological Agency is predicting that September, October and November will be warmer than usual, with average temperatures reaching well over 20ºC and around seven hours of sun.

With these balmy and sunny conditions, you can attempt to tackle some of the longer or more challenging routes without needing to carry half your body weight in water or the need for so much suncream. We've written down comprehensive cycling and mountain biking guides for you to explore the island on two wheels or, if you'd prefer to explore on foot, take a look at our walking guide for ideas of where to go and suggested routes and maps.

Beach clubs

Some of our favourite beach clubs remain open throughout September and into October.

Nikki Beach
The glamorous Nikki Beach boasts some of the best views on the White Isle from its privileged location right in front of the sea. With a gourmet restaurant and a great area around the pool, you can choose what you want your Nikki Beach experience to be – a relaxing day chilling out by the water during the week, or a champagne-flowing party in the weekends, with their signature entertainers bringing on upbeat Balearic vibes throughout the day.

We recommend you stay for lunch and enjoy some of their fine cuisines, especially on Wednesdays when they put on their Summer Lovers menu. Even if it rains, which is not a common occurrence on the island, you can take shelter inside their cosy dining area with huge windows overlooking the Mediterranean. They won't shut their doors until October 14th but, before that, they're hosting their famous Red Party on September 29th to say goodbye to another magnificent summer.

Amante & Aiyanna
Amante and Aiyanna are sister venues located on the eastern coast of Ibiza. Boasting secluded locations and charming Bohemian design, they're the perfect place to unwind and enjoy Ibiza's incredible autumn weather. Their beach beds and restaurant will be open until October 20th, giving you plenty of time to fit in one last visit to the beach before winter comes.

Seasonal produce

Early autumn is all about the harvest. As grapes, mushrooms and pine nuts are picked, rural towns celebrate with regional fairs and festivals honouring their humble but delicious local produce, so it's the perfect time of year to try out Ibizan traditional cuisine.

One of the most authentic customs on the island's farmlands is 'ses matances', the pig slaughter in November. Families get together and make a party out of it, singing, dancing and preparing dishes made with those parts of the pork that cannot be easily preserved, such as offal which is fried for the 'frit de matances'. Adventurous eaters can also try 'arros de matances', a delicious rice dish, although the most typical product made with pork on the White Isle is undoubtedly sobrassada. Many of the island's restaurants serve these delicacies in autumn.

Sights & attractions

It's not easy to find time for sightseeing in Ibiza in the summer, there are just too many things to do! But as temperatures cool down you can venture into the most remote and widely unknown inland villages. Nestled in the island's stunning countryside, you'll find small rural communities surrounded by agricultural lands and dominated by beautiful whitewashed churches. We recommend you visit San Llorenç de Balafia and look out for its famous towers, vestiges of old Arabic attacks on the island, or Sant Mateu d'Aubarca, a tiny village within the largest area of vineyards on the White Isle.

Markets

Some of the markets in Ibiza are held throughout the year. That's the case of Las Dalias, the popular hippy market near Sant Carles, which is open on Saturdays throughout the year. The same thing happens with Sant Jordi Flea Market where, every Saturday, locals flock to buy and sell antiques and other second-hand objects.

Boat trips & watersports

Even if the water can still reach 20ºC in October and November, there's no doubt that it's way colder than in the summer, descending to 17ºC in December. However, you can still enjoy the Mediterranean in autumn. Boat trips are a great way to explore Ibiza's coastline without having to plunge into its crystalline but increasingly freezing waters. Diving is also a great choice, just ask for thicker neoprene and discover the wonders of the White Isle's sea life.
