Bring your competitive side to Ibiza this spring!

Sports competitions in Ibiza have become more and more popular over the years, attracting both national and international participants, especially in the spring, when some of the best known races colour the sports calendar in Ibiza.

In April and May you’ll find, also on the eastern coast of Ibiza, several scored events and competitions that are a great reason to hop over to the White Island. Also, direct flights between Ibiza and the main airports in Spain and Europe are resumed in spring, so you’re bound to find the easiest connection to the island for you.

And lastly, another good reason to come to Ibiza this spring is the mild weather that provides perfect temperatures for vigorous exercise and outdoor competitions: the average temperature in April is no higher than 17ºC and no lower than 10ºC and in May it goes no higher than 23ºC and doesn’t drop under 14ºC.
