Thing to do when it’s raining on Ibiza

Ibiza enjoys an average of 300 days glorious sunshine a year.

Those remaining days however, often leave people feeling stuck on things to do, especially if you’re only over for a short break.

Fear not though – as we’ve come up with a list of 6 things you can get up to here, when the weather isn’t on your side.


No one really wants to spend the afternoon trawling through the streets, in the blistering heat to go shopping. That’s why the cooler days are perfect for some retail therapy. And Ibiza Town is where it’s at.

From high-street favourites such as Zara and Mango in the main town, right through to higher-end shops such as Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney in the marina.

With many of the brands focusing on island-styles, you’re bound to find something to suit your Balearic surroundings here.

Another must-visit is Sluiz in Santa Gertrudis. A Santas grotto for eclectic, home and fashion items. You’ll find some truly unique and beautiful pieces here. It’s weird, whacky and wonderful. You can even stop for a coffee and cake if you need a rest.

Currently, only the terraces are open due to the restrictions, however that is sure to change closer to summer.

Even if they don’t, there’s still hundreds of restaurants on the island that provide shelter from the rain, without having to hide away indoors.

We love The Boat House in the north of the island, Finca La Plaza in Santa Gerdrudis or La Cantina in San Antonio for colder days as they have a fire.

Hire a car

It’s impossible to see the whole of Ibiza without transport, which is why hiring a car is advisable. Take in the incredible scenery and maybe stop for lunch at one of the islands hidden-gem restaurants in the hills. There are numerous hire companies here, but we recommend using Moto Luis.

There’s more than enough bars hereon Ibiza to keep you entertained during your holiday. Stay local, or jump in a taxi to somewhere different. Spend the afternoon enjoying your favourite cocktails, listening to the trickling rain outside. One of our go-to spots for a rainy days tipple is Paradise Lost in the Old Town.  A vibrant, welcoming spot with gorgeous cocktails.

Why not shake off that hangover by booking a Yoga session, with one of the islands many experienced instructors? Perfect your mountain pose, or practice the warrior, and feel energised for the day ahead. We highly recommend contacting Jennuine Fitness to book your session anywhere on the island.

There’s plenty of books dedicated to our wonderful island, many focused on a range of subjects. From gastronomy, music, health, spirituality, history and more. One book we’d recommend if you’re into your cooking is ‘Glorious Ibiza Food (& music)‘. Author and island resident – Sid Shanti shares his recipes, which he’s developed throughout his years of working with food on the white isle.
