Holiday Season & Christmas in Ibiza
Christmas in Ibiza is an unforgettable experience. The island truly comes alive during the festive season, providing an atmosphere that is different from the more traditional celebrations of northern Europe. Instead of a white Christmas, the warmth of the Mediterranean and the all-year-round sunshine mean you can step out in just a jumper or t-shirt and even take a stroll on the beach! There is still plenty of festive cheer to be had, with plenty of mulled wine and roaring fires to enjoy in a unique setting.
Turkey may be off the menu when it comes to Christmas dinners in Ibiza. Instead, the island’s cuisine celebrates fresh fish and the famous dessert Salsa de Nadal, a sweet sauce made of toasted almonds, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon with water or beef stock. It can be served alone or with cake and biscuits to dip in. Additionally, Ibiza has two present-giving days: Christmas Day and El Día De Los Reyes Magos, which falls on the 6th of January. This celebration is one of the most iconic of all Spanish Christmas traditions, but Ibiza’s maritime setting adds a special beauty to the occasion. The parade of the Three Kings begins with them disembarking from a decorated boat, an event that never fails to captivate the children in attendance.

As everyone knows, the locals know how to enjoy themselves here in Ibiza. This year the temperatures were similar to summer in the UK, which enabled us to enjoy some amazing meals on the beach and many incredible sunsets. Our group booked a table at the wonderful Yemanji restaurant for lunch on Christmas Eve. This long-standing island favorite is now under the management of the iconic Blue Marlin brand, yet it still retains its family-friendly vibe and local flavor. Our group of twenty-seven adults plus kids tucked into a real feast overlooking Cala Jondal Beach. It was a really special occasion – a beautiful beach, excellent food, and warm winter afternoon sunshine that sunk into an amazing evening sunset – what more could we ask for at Christmas? After our meal, true to tradition, our children launched their handmade Ibiza Boats. Our children look forward to this every year, and again this year some pretty spectacular innovations were set to sail on the water, with little Christmas messages on board. I get the feeling this tradition will grow in popularity. Maybe it’s the start of the Christmas Ibiza Boat Show?
Some people may wish to rent a villa in Ibiza or stay in a beautiful boutique hotel in Eivissa Town, however, everyone will enjoy our beautiful beaches in Ibiza, with amazing weather and that warm Christmassy feeling.
