Planning your hiking holidays in Ibiza

Why should I go hiking in Ibiza?

When you think about hiking destinations, Ibiza may not spring immediately to your mind! That's a good thing, though - it means you'll enjoy more privacy on the trails. This is your chance to see another side of Ibiza, as you discover the natural beauty that has long made it a popular destination for hippies and bohemians. The weather is mild enough that you can go hiking at almost any time of year, and you'll even find dog-friendly trails if you're planning a trip with your holiday with your pets to Ibiza.

Where should I stay for active holidays in Ibiza?

Ibiza's wild party scene is concentrated in the south of the island, so if you'd like to get away from it all, you're better off heading north. When choosing Ibiza for hiking, consider destinations like Portinatx, a quiet beach town that still preserves the traditional way of life. Benirràs is another good option. This has a laid-back vibe, with drumming circles on the beach every Sunday at sunset. Choose villas in Ibiza in the quiet north of the island, and you'll easily be able to escape the crowds.

The best hikes in Ibiza

Sa Talaia

If you're looking for the best hiking destinations in Ibiza, it's best to start with Sa Talaia. This is the highest point on the island, 475m above sea level. There are a few different trails to choose from, but the most popular is a 12-km loop that will take you between three and four hours to complete. Along the way, you'll wander through fig groves and pine forests, with the fragrance of wild thyme filling the air. Although this is the highest point on the island, the slope is gentle, so this route is suitable for even novice hikers.

El Far del Moscarter

Moscarter Lighthouse is the highest lighthouse in the Balearic archipelago, so it's another great choice for walking holidays in Ibiza. This route is about 12 km long, running along the cliffs that mark Ibiza's north coast. While it's not a taxing hike, you will be right next to the sea, and if you're scared of heights or prone to dizziness, it can be a little scary. The bonus? You'll have stunning sea views throughout your hike, and you'll be able to stop at Cala d'en Serra, one of the most isolated beaches on the island, with crystal-clear water that's perfect for swimming or snorkelling.

Es Portitxol

If you look for holiday lettings in Ibiza in the Portinatx area, you'll be in a great place for many hiking trails. One of the best is the route that leads to Es Portitxol. This quiet cove sits at the end of a route marked by wild blackberry bushes. You can take the full 10.8-km loop if you'd like to make a day of it. Prefer to take it easy? Walk to the beach then hop on a boat to take you back to Portinatx.

El Caló de s'Illa

This is a short route, running for just 3.5 kilometres from Benirràs beach. It's great if you just want to stretch your legs, or you're travelling with the kids. You'll stroll through a quiet pine forest, and at the end of it, a stunning reward is waiting for you: the beach of El Caló de s'Illa. This is one of the quietest coves on the entire island, where you'll be able to enjoy a dip in the clear blue waters without any crowds. It's a magical place, and even though the trail is short, it's one you'll never forget.

FAQs: Hiking in Ibiza

What's the best time of year for hiking holidays in Ibiza?

Even in the height of summer, Ibiza's temperatures rarely get above 30°C. However, if you prefer milder weather for your hikes, try visiting in June or September. The weather hovers at around 24°C, the beaches are quieter and the water is still perfectly swimmable. Ibiza doesn't get much rain at any time of year, but it's always a good idea to check the weather forecast before setting out on a hike.

What should I pack for my active holidays in Ibiza?

Generally, the best areas in Ibiza for hiking are scenic but not too demanding. This means that you won't need to bring walking poles or other specialist equipment. Rigid hiking boots are not strictly necessary, and you might be more comfortable in a good pair of walking trainers or trekking sandals.

Are there multi-day hikes in Ibiza?

Not really. Ibiza is a small island, and it does not have multi-day trails like you'll find elsewhere in Spain. The most popular routes here are quite short, and will usually take about half a day to complete. The neighbouring islands of Mallorca and Menorca both have multi-day trails for you to enjoy.
