When to go
With roughly 300 days of sunshine a year, any time is a good time to catch one of the flights Ibiza bound. The busiest time is from June to September when everything is open, the beaches are crowded, and the nightclubs sweaty! If that is the sort of holiday you are after, then go for it.
In autumn, when the flights Ibiza bound are less plentiful, the island is almost unrecognisable with empty beaches and clear roads. This is the time to meet the islanders and get to know their way of life away from tourists. Winter is mild and sunny, and the sea is still warm enough to swim in during November.
Shopping in Ibiza
Traditional gifts to look out for are ceramics, leather goods, espadrilles, and embroidery sold all over the island. If you want clothing, the Ad Lib brand is popular, a mix of plain cloth with bright colours often worn in the style of flouncy tops, low slung leather belts and wooden sandals.
Other items that might take your fancy are art by local painters, antiques, the Ibizan liqueur called frigola, or how about getting a caricature done of yourself or as a present for someone? It might not be flattering but it is all done in good taste. Remember, many shops in Eivissa stay open until midnight, giving you the chance to browse in the cool of the evening.
