What to know before you go biking in Ibiza

Why should I choose bike holidays in Ibiza?

Ibiza is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and when you set off to discover it by bike, you'll soon see why. This rugged island has rocky hills and dramatic cliffs that are ideal for cycling. Many of its best cycle routes run alongside the Mediterranean Sea, giving you jaw-dropping views for miles on end. Although the island is just 40km from north to south, it has over 700km of dedicated cycling routes, so it's hard to get bored. Its small size is handy for practical reasons. You'll never be too far from a bar or a café if you want to take a break, which makes it a good choice for the nervous cyclist or for newcomers to the sport.

Where are the best places to stay for Ibiza bike holidays?

During your bike holiday in Ibiza, you have a number of choices when it comes to accommodation. It's very easy to get around the island, with cycle paths connecting all the main towns. If you'd like to go shopping, sightseeing or clubbing as part of your holiday, look for holiday lettings in Ibiza in the capital, Ibiza Town. Portinatx and Benirràs, both in the quieter north of the island, are better choices if you'd like to be immersed in nature. Even San Antonio, known for its wild nightlife, has some good cycle paths nearby.

The best cycle routes in Ibiza

Ses Salines

If you want to go biking in Ibiza for a full day, this is a perfect choice. It will take you four hours to complete this coastal route - but that's if you don't stop along the way. Over 35.8 km, you'll see a delightful mixture of scenery. The route starts in the historic centre of Ibiza Town, then hugs the coast to Platja d'en Bossa and Es Cavallet. You'll have plenty of options to stop and go for a dip or eat ice cream before you return to the town. It's a long route, but not particularly taxing, so you don't need to be a serious cyclist to enjoy it.

Ibiza Extreme

This route is aptly named. If you want a challenge for your Ibiza bike tours, then this is the way to go. You'll start at Sant Josep de Talaia and follow 32 km of steep ascents and descents. At times, it's actually better to dismount and walk your bike down, as the slopes can be very tricky. Along the way, you'll have extremely tough sections like a 415-m climb in just 1.5 km. You'll pass Sa Talaia, the highest point on the island, during this circular loop. When you've finished, give yourself a pat on the back and head back to your villa in Ibiza to rest.

Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera

This 30-km route has some sloping sections, but it's not a legbreaker. It does, however, offer you some of the best natural beauty on the island. You'll go through the interior of Ibiza, passing the freshwater spring of Es Broll and the charming, picture-perfect village of Santa Gertrudis with its traditional white-walled houses. Santa Gertrudis also boasts an excellent yoga studio, so if you're not too tired from your bike ride, stop here and try a bit of yoga in Ibiza.

Port des Torrent

If you're travelling with the kids or with inexperienced cyclists, this is the best route to go for. It's just 12 km long and can be broken up into even smaller sections, allowing you to stop along the way to grab a bite to eat. This family-friendly route starts and ends in San Antonio, and passes some of the most picturesque sights on the island along the way.

FAQs: Bike trip in Ibiza

What's the best time of year to go cycling in Ibiza?

Ibiza has a mild climate, so you can take a bike holiday there at any time of year. However, it's best to avoid July and August - not for the heat, but for the crowds. April - June and September - October are good choices for sunshine, moderate temperatures and fewer people. The water in the sea is swimmable from May to early October.

Where can I rent a bike in Ibiza?

You'll find bike rentals available in Ibiza Town, San Antonio and other major towns on the island. If you're going for a high end road bike or mountain bike, you can expect to pay around €30 - €40 a day, with a discount if you choose to rent a bike for several days. A basic bike can be hired for as little as €9 a day, but it may not be suitable for the island's hillier routes.

Will I need to share the road with cars?

Not usually. Ibiza has an extensive network of dedicated cycle lanes. The only time you'll need to watch out for cars is when you are in a town, as the roads are often fairly narrow. When you're going between towns, you'll find cycle paths. Some are covered with tarmac, but most are simple dirt paths.
