The yachting.com Sailing Guide to Ibiza
Sailing Season in Ibiza: April - October
Things to Keep in Mind:
Sailing in Ibiza is fairly straightforward and is a welcoming destination for less experienced sailors. While tidal shifts are not of great concern in the area, there shallow shoals and protruding rock to be aware of between Ibiza and the popular beach island of Formentera. Sticking to routes clearly marked by buoys will keep you out of trouble.
When anchoring, be sure you check that you are not in a restricted area. There are several in Ibiza due to nature reserves and other special areas, and fines can be significant. For example, anchoring between the main breakwater and the marina is sometimes prohibited and this restriction is closely enforced.
If possible, borrow a sailing pilot book for helpful information about restrictions, marinas, and detailed sailing knowledge of the area.
During peak season marinas can be quite expensive and are oftentimes full. It is advisable to book in advance during these periods to ensure your space.
The weather during the sailing season is warm, and the winds tend to be light, and water is fairly calm.
Current Sailing Conditions
Ibiza has been popularized by its legendary nightlife, but is also home to beautiful beaches and relaxing small towns by the sea.
Compared to hotel accommodation on the island itself, chartering a yacht can be a relatively economical option with the added benefit of being able to easily access remote beaches and travel across the channel to Formentera.
A trip to Formentera is a must. The small island has wonderful beaches and ample spots to anchor nearby.
