After the end of the summer shenanigans, you would be mistaken to think that the island goes into hibernation come November. The spirit of Ibiza continues to live on in dazzling style, with an array of fantastic events on offer throughout the month.

With temperatures still reaching their mid-twenties, November is the perfect time to escape the cold and head over to the golden shores of the White Isle. Although many of the island’s restaurants, beach clubs and hotels remain closed, there are still tons of things to do, including food festivals, club nights and family-friendly fun.

Food festivals

Throughout this month, San Antonio will host its annual Restaurat Gastronomic Festival when 17 restaurants from across town offer special menus for €19. All participating eateries will also take part in a culinary contest, where a professional jury will select the best restaurant as well as the top starter, main dish and dessert. Now in its 11th edition, the festival is a great way to discover the island's local cuisine, which this year will honour the lamb.

Hippy markets

Many of the island’s iconic markets continue to thrive in November, being the perfect choice for a spot of retail therapy. The world-famous Las Dalias keeps going throughout the winter, brightening up Saturdays with a colourful and eclectic market in San Carlos. Deeper in the countryside lies Forada Market, a popular local event held every Saturday from 10:00 in front of Can Tixedo Restaurant, on the road that connects San Antonio and San Rafael. Alternatively, Sant Joan Artisan Market is the place to be for Ibizan produce and artisanal stalls, where visitors can enjoy a lively atmosphere every Sunday from 10:00.

The party continues

Don’t put your best dance moves away just yet, as there are still plenty of parties to enjoy in November. Lío Ibiza remains open for the first time in its illustrious history, with several spectacular events planned this month. Ibiza Global Radio, the island’s No.1 international radio station, will host a special showcase on November 2nd to celebrate 15 years in business, featuring many of our favourite in-house DJs. For lovers of underground dance music, Octan Ibiza welcomes party revellers this winter, offering a fresh alternative to the Ibiza club culture.

Dreaming of Formentera

Ibiza's neighbouring island is simply stunning at this time of year and made even better by the absence of mass crowds. For those that want to bask in all of its splendours, the ferry to Formentera embarks from the Port of Ibiza at regular intervals throughout the day. Transporting you to destination of pure paradise, the island’s sparkling white sand and crystalline waters will certainly leave you speechless.

Traditional fiestas

In November, the charming rural village of San Carlos commemorates its patron saint, offering a multitude of wonderful festivities throughout the month. On November 4th, Saint Charles is honoured with a solemn mass and traditional parade, with the following weekends presenting children's activities, live music, workshops and lots of food and drinks in the northeastern town.

Show-stopping closings

Nagai Ibiza celebrates the end of a sizzling season with a new edition of its Ethereal party on November 3rd. Combining music with art, resident DJs will provide the perfect soundtrack to accompany art exhibitions, children’s activities and of course, world-class fusion cuisine.

Vibrant venues

Despite the island being considerably quieter in November, many of our favourite hot spots stay open all through the season. Highly recommended is the ultra-stylish restaurant and lounge bar of IT Ibiza, where delicious cocktails complement Italian cuisine in a heavenly setting overlooking Ibiza Town. Alternatively, enjoy a divine lunch or dinner until January 12th at Nassau Beach Club, a slice of Ibiza luxe that is decked out with a distinctly Indonesian décor.
