Ibiza september

Gone is August and with it the usual hustle and bustle from the hottest summer months. The frenzy is over, but we’re still keen to make the most of the last summer joys, as sweet as ripe fruit picked on the last summer days. This is Ibiza in September: summer lives on.

The beaches, lengthy relaxed meals, long nights, shop browsing in the evenings, strolling through the old streets of Dalt Vila... this is all there in Ibiza in September, a wonderful month to discover and rediscover the most exciting island in the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, for many fans of Ibiza, September is, along with May and October, the perfect time to return to the island with its pleasures and joys, and top up their energy before tackling the autumn routines.

Ibiza’s weather in September: sweet but capricious

If you're coming to Ibiza during the last summer month, you’ll need to pack your swimwear, sunglasses, sunhat or headscarf, sandals, flip-flops and light clothes, but don’t forget to fit in a cardigan or jacket to avoid getting cold at night because it does get cooler once the sun is tucked away behind the horizon. It’s also best to bring a pair of winter shoes, because it barely rains –an average five days in September– but you might get caught in the rare yet brief downpour during your holidays. In short, the average temperatures won’t rise above 26ºC or drop below 19ºC.

Daytime in Ibiza in September: fun and less crowded

The summer crowds dwindle after August, but Ibiza is still bursting with exciting plans and you can appreciate them with less people. Cala Bassa, Cala Saladeta, Ses Salines and Cala Compte continue to draw in visitors following influencers’ pilgrimage to these popular beaches, but the island has another 50 fantastic beaches to enjoy this month. Pack a pair of water shoes in your suitcase and go for a wonderful end-of-summer swim in Cala Molí, Cala Carbó and Cala Codolar, for example, or explore the northern coast and the unspoilt coves of Cala Xuclar, Caló d’en Serra, Caló des Moltons and Aigües Blanques. And if you’d rather admire the coast from the water, you can rent a boat with or without skipper in September at cheaper rates than in July and August. If this sounds good to you, ask at our front desk!

Active plans for the end of summer

It’s also a fabulous time to have fun kayaking or doing paddle surf, in San Antonio bay or along the eastern coast, which also boasts a beautiful coastline that is worth exploring at leisure. But if you like to go for walks or bike rides, the temperature is pleasant enough to explore the routes around our hotel, like the one from Port des Torrent to Cala Conta, the one from San Antonio to Cala Salada or the climb up to the peak of Sa Talaia.

Plans for September without leaving the hotel

And if you feel like spending a lazy day or two, Las Mimosas has exciting or relaxing activities and suggestions: pool sessions on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, yoga sessions, a relaxing time in the spa, massages and beauty treatments (booking required), a reading day by the pool, a delicious lunch...

September nightlife is still unique in Ibiza

Although most people return to their daily routines in August, there are many who prefer to set the out-of-office notice when their colleagues trickle back from their holidays. And the holiday buzz has been building all summer! That’s why September nights in Ibiza are full of energy: because they bring together the need for fun with the knowledge that the summer is coming to an end and we've got to make the most of it. Ibiza’s evenings and nights are still as lively on Ses Variedades promenade, with beautiful sunsets at Café Mambo, and big parties at the clubs.

And let’s not forget the restaurants, with their fantastic vibe and food, having fine-tuned their menus over the summer months –some restaurants didn’t open until July or August. This month, one can still enjoy the amazing sunsets from Hostal La Torre, incredible romantic evenings at Villa Mercedes, the restaurants and lively atmosphere in La Marina district in Ibiza, and the charming restaurants inland, including Can Pau, Can Balàfia, Nagai Restaurant, Es Caliu or La Paloma Ibiza, among many others.

If you’d like some suggestions on what to do in Ibiza in September, where to go and where to hire outdoor activities, ask us during your stay at Las Mimosas Ibiza. Our front desk will be delighted to help you.
