Although the season gets going in May and winds down in October, the island is beautiful in early spring when the almond blossom is out.
Outside the hottest months of July and August, all the Balearics are good for activity holidays, whether easy or more challenging, with plenty to see if you are interested in plants or birds. Sunshine is not guaranteed, however, and you may well hit a rainy patch in late autumn.
For a week of wild partying, stay in the lively resorts of Playa d’en Bossa or San Antonio. Santa Eulalia is more laidback with plenty of waterfront bars and restaurants and good shops. For a cultural fix, explore the hilltop Dalt Vila in Ibiza Town, then slide into a pavement café to soak up the boho vibe. Both coast and countryside are beautiful in spring and autumn, when you might want to get a more natural high with a walking or cycling holiday.
