Here is our pick of the best activities on offer in Ibiza in June.
What's the weather like in Ibiza in June?
For the sun-seekers, June is truly summertime weather in Ibiza - the days are getting hot and the evenings balmy, rain is very rare, and the sea is nicely warming up at this point in the year. Water temperatures reach around 23°C, and air temperatures reach daytime highs of 28°C and lows of 19°C. Around the summer solstice, the days are long, with sunrise around 06.30 and sunset after 21.00, so there's plenty of time to catch some vitamin D and then enjoy a late Ibizan evening, with some al-fresco dining and drinks.

The beach clubs are well and truly warmed up and parties are in full-swing by June, with jam-packed events schedules to look forward to.

Boat trips in June
By June the boating season has well and truly started, but it's not yet so busy that you'll be fighting for a booking. No matter where you might be on the island, there will be the opportunity to take to the water close by. Many companies offer group boat trips where you buy a ticket, and join a group on a cruise for the day, half day or sunset trips. If you're looking for something more extravagant, join a party boat trip, where you'll find a fully-stocked bar and live DJs, dancefloors, sunbathing decks, and plenty of watersports activities, too.
Charter a yacht
For a more exclusive experience, and if the purse strings allow, then chartering a private yacht is a fantastic option for a special day out on the water with a group of friends of family. You'll have the flexibility to explore Ibiza's best coastlines on your own time frame, relax and sunbathe on deck, or for the thrill-seekers most boats are also well-equipped with watersports equipment to try.
Picturesque villages in June
As the tourists begin to arrive and Ibiza Town fills up, head to the inland sleepy villages to get away from the crowds and explore. There are many beautiful villages scattered across the island, but here are some of our favourite must-visit spots:
Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera, located 12km north of Ibiza town and in the middle of the island, is surrounded by rich countryside and fruit trees. It's a small traditional village where you'll find art galleries, funky clothes shops and artisan goods.
Sant Carles de Peralta, also known as San Carlos, is a small village with a long history of hippy settlers and beautiful markets, and a pretty white 18th century church which dominates the scene.
Sant Josep de Talaia is known to have to some of the island's most beautiful beaches, but the town of San Jose itself is also a charming typical Ibizan village which with a beautiful 18th century church. The island's highest point, Sa Talaiassa, is also found here.
Sant Joan de Labritja, north of Ibiza Town, is surrounded by beautiful mountainous scenes, which provides great panoramic views across the countryside. Usually enjoying a quiet and slower pace of life, the town comes alive in June for the Fiesta de Sant Joan.
