Planning your Ibiza holiday with a dog

Why should I go to Ibiza with my dog?

Ibiza is a wonderful place for a holiday with your four-legged friend. This small island is dotted with lovely trails for you to explore, and hiking in Ibiza is so much more satisfying with a pup by your side. During the low season, dogs can have fun on the beach, and if your pooch is a water baby, there are plenty of options for swimming. What's more, the island is incredibly dog-friendly. Don't be surprised to see a few canines chilling out on the terrace of a restaurant downtown.

Where should I stay for holidays in Ibiza with a dog?

For your Ibiza holiday with a dog, you might prefer to avoid the island's urban centres. It's not that Ibiza Town and San Antonio are unfriendly to canines, but they do attract the biggest crowds, which your pet may find overwhelming. Instead, head to the north of the island. Santa Eulalia is a charming, family-friendly resort that's a good choice if your dog gets on well with children. If you prefer full-on nature, look for holiday lettings in Ibiza in Portinatx or Benirrás instead. These are quiet coastal towns with lots of good options for walks.

What to do with your dog in Ibiza

Have fun on the beach

During the winter season - which runs from the 1st of November to the 31st of March - you can take your pooch to beaches around the island. However, if you're visiting in the summer months, most beaches are restricted, and dogs are not welcome. There are dog-friendly beaches in both Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia. In Santa Eulalia, you'll find two sandy dog beaches, while in Ibiza Town there is a single pebble beach for canines.

Enjoy wonderful walks

During your holiday in Ibiza with a dog, you can find some truly tremendous walking routes. For something really special, follow the trail up Sa Talaia, the highest point on the island. You'll be walking through pine forests and gentle slopes, and there are lots of interesting spots for your dog to explore. Another good choice is the walk to the Moscarter Lighthouse, which is a winding, rocky trail. In summer, be sure to carry some water for your four-legged friend. Temperatures in Ibiza are rarely extreme, but dogs tend to feel the heat far more than humans.

Make puppy pals at a dog park

Your pet may be content to roam around the grounds of your finca in Ibiza, but if you feel like socialising, try a dog park. Can Bosc de Llum, in the centre of the island, is one of the best dog parks around. It's an area of the forest that has been given to dogs to run around, and the maze of trees is great fun for canines. Meanwhile, you'll find a fabulous urban dog park in Santa Eulalia. Called Cas Capità, it even features an agility course for your dog to try to master.

Relax at a dog-friendly café

Generally, dogs are welcome on the terraces of cafés and restaurants in Spain, but the smarter restaurants in Ibiza are not so accommodating. Luckily, there are some that are just as happy to welcome dogs as people and will even offer a bowl of cool water for your pet to drink while you enjoy your meal. Some of the best dog-friendly restaurants include Atzaró and Galicatessen in Santa Eulalia, Born in Ibiza Town and Aubergine Ibiza in Santa Gertrudis.

FAQs: Pet-friendly holidays in Ibiza

Can I take my dog on public transport in Ibiza?

Most buses in Ibiza are dog-friendly, but it's ultimately a matter for the driver's discretion. Generally, you'll find that small dogs are welcome, and if they're in a carrier, there won't be any complaints. Big dogs may cause more problems, depending on the driver. Your dog will need to be leashed and under control while on the bus, and if another passenger complains, you may have to get off. Dogs are permitted on the ferry between Ibiza and Formentera, but you should book in advance, as they will need to be crated.

Can I let my dog run around off-leash?

Legally, dogs must be leashed while in public in Spain. If your dog is considered to be a dangerous breed, it must also wear a muzzle. You're bound to see some owners flouting these laws, but take care, as you face a fine.

What are the laws about cleaning up after my dog?

In Spain, you are legally obliged to clean up if your dog makes a mess outdoors. As well as a bag to scoop things up, you'll need a bottle of water. The law obliges you to squirt water over any wet patches your dog leaves in the street.
