Els Pins Resort & Spa Map
Ibiza enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the year across the island. It's typical "season" runs from around April through to October, when the temperatures are highest and can reach the 30s in July and August. During the winter months, the weather is cooler, but it's still a lovely escape and warmer than the UK at around 10-15 degrees, so you'll probably want a jumper for the evenings.
