MARCH IN IBIZA

Well, this is a new month for us to talk about! 2023 was the first year that we opened our doors in the month of March to the public, and they will reopen again on 27th March 2024.

If you want to discover the more authentic and traditional side of Ibiza, this is the month to do it, with little nightlife to distract you from the beautiful hikes and springtime socializing on offer.

It’s worth noting that the weather can be unpredictable, so pack appropriately. A rainproof jacket won’t hurt.

WHAT’S ON IN MARCH

Our home San Antonio welcomes Pintxa, an annual competition between all the local bars and restaurants that are open during the winter. It’s an opportunity to enjoy mini tapas and snack options plus a drink, and some venues even offer live music. It’s a great soft warm-up to bring some atmosphere to the town before the season really begins.

Further afield, in San Jose, there is the annual celebration of the day of Saint Joseph. On the closest Saturday to the 19th of March, the famous Pacha club night ‘Flower Power’ turns the small village into an open-air disco with DJs and live bands playing all night long.

BE ONE OF THE VERY FIRST TO EXPERIENCE IBIZA 2024 WITH OUR MARCH ROOMS FROM JUST €25 per person per night

APRIL IN IBIZA

Not too long ago, April would have been deemed a quiet month in Ibiza, with everyone still waiting for the opening parties of May. However, nowadays, the final weekend of the month is jam-packed with huge events brought to you by venues all over the island. Much like March, though, for the majority of the month, you will want to make use of your days venturing out and seeing what the island has to offer. Gems such as Es Vedra, Abandoned Festival Club, and Time & Space are not to be missed.

Temperature-wise, you still might want to pack a jacket and a pair of jeans for those chilly nights (average daily temperatures between 11°C and 19°C).

WHAT’S ON IN APRIL

We’re expecting plenty of Ibiza Opening Party news to come pretty soon. At the moment, we have the traditional 18-hour marathon day-into-night party at Ushuaïa & Hï on Saturday, 27th April. Ibiza Rocks’ venue will be open on Fridays and Saturdays for the first three weeks of the month before opening daily from 26th April, which happens to be the same as O Beach’s first event of the season.

If you happen to be on the island during the International Music Summit (IMS), we strongly recommend attending as you’ll catch DJ sets from some of the biggest names on the planet in the most mesmerizing of settings… Dalt Vila.

MAY IN IBIZA

In May, the island really starts to awaken from the winter.

At the start of the month, things are still quite chilled with the weather warming up and flight prices super affordable. Average daily temperatures are around 16.5°C, rising to 22°C by late May, so you can certainly expect to return home with a tan your friends will be envious of.

The beaches are glorious, and there is space everywhere! The huge crowds of the high season have yet to arrive, so it’s the perfect place to chill out.

WHAT’S ON IN MAY

In terms of party spots, the start of the month is when the bars start to open again, particularly in San Antonio, and this year we expect the majority of super clubs to be open at least over the weekends.

As the month goes on, the party calendar starts filling up. The last week is traditionally when many venues have their 5-7 day week schedules up and running, including our own at Ibiza Rocks. Our grand opening party falls on Saturday, 4th, and our May residencies include the likes of Craig David, LoveJuice, Switch Disco & Applebum.

JUNE IN IBIZA

By the start of June, it’s noticeably busier (but not quite as rammed as in peak season), so it’s a paradise for Ibiza veterans or virgins. Temperatures rise (average daily temperatures between 18°C and 26°C), the party calendar grows, but flights and Ibiza Rocks Hotel stay prices are still low.

Possibly our favourite month of the summer. It may not come into the category of ‘peak season,’ but it always sells out, and the dancefloors always have an amazing atmosphere. June is when the island really starts to come to life, and this year will be no different.

WHAT’S ON IN JUNE

June is when the biggest day party program on the island gets into full swing — ours! We can’t reveal who we’ve got joining us just yet as it’s top secret, but keep an eye out in January for some huge announcements…

You will also find a wealth of early-season parties to choose from across the board as the majority of venues are operating 7 days a week. Although you will find a few one-off events and shorter residencies to fill in some of the gaps in the calendar!

At Ibiza Rocks, you’ll find  the likes of Ben Hemsley, Ben Nicky, Switch Disco, LoveJuice, Applebum, Cassö, DAIRE, and Multunes.

JULY IN IBIZA

Peak season has arrived… By far the most popular month at Ibiza Rocks Hotel and the island in general, so expect a combo of hot weather (between 21°C and 29°C) and even hotter events all month long. In San Antonio, in particular, there is always something going on as it’s the time in the summer to experience the true Ibiza vibe in all its glory. The constant magical buzz, like-minded people, the legendary parties, and colossal atmosphere! WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?

With the sun rising early and setting late, July is the ideal time to really make the most of the daytime vibes on the island. Get yourself down to Cafe Mambo no later than 9 pm to catch the iconic sunset. You will not be disappointed.

WHAT’S ON IN JULY

From daytime pool parties to pre-parties watching the sunset to dawn raves, if you’re on the island to dance, July really has it all. Prices may increase for event tickets, but the party line-ups are BIG! We’re talking the likes of David Guetta, Ben Hemsley, Martin Garrix, and Calvin Harris by day and Eric Prydz, Sonny Marco Carola, David Guetta (again!) and many more by night.

If there’s one thing we can guarantee in July, though, it’s the villa after-parties that can go way into the following afternoon. How you get an invite to them we hear you ask? We’re still trying to find out the answer, so if anyone ends up attending one, do let us know!

Here at Rocks we’ll be hosting Joel Corry, Nathan Dawe, Ben Hemsley, LoveJuice, Switch Disco & more.

THINGS START HEATING UP IN JULY, BOOK NOW FROM JUST €93 PER PERSON PER NIGHT

AUGUST IN IBIZA

In August, we’re talking the peak of the Ibiza season. The first week of the month is generally the busiest week in the calendar. Temperatures are at their highest (average daily temperatures between 22°C and 30°C), and expect club nights to be full of atmosphere carrying on the momentum from July.

Things get more international as Spanish and Italian holidaymakers join the mix, so expect reggaeton and techno sounds to take over the schedules.

WHAT’S ON IN AUGUST

A long-standing tradition, Radio 1 in Ibiza is a calendar date many Ibiza veterans will base their holiday schedule on. For 2024, it has moved back to it’s more familar dates of the first weekend in August with the flagship event taking place at Ibiza’s newest venue, 528 (formerly Benimussa Park, home to The Zoo Project) on Friday 2nd August.

Across the island, it’s very much all systems go with each and every venue battling it out to draw in the core Ibiza holidaymakers (and residents) with the biggest and best events. Keep an eye out for a one-off Swedish House Mafia show at Ushuaïa…

Here at Rocks we’ll be hosting Joel Corry, Nathan Dawe, Ben Hemsley, LoveJuice, Switch Disco & more.

september IN IBIZA

The summer may feel like it’s over when September arrives in the UK but those in the know will tell you that when it comes to Ibiza it’s all about September. Much like June things are less busy, everything feels more chilled, Hotel and Flights are cheaper and the line ups across the island start to get a bit more experimental. The only downside is that the weather can be a bit more unpredictable compared to peak season (average daily temperatures between 19°C and 27°C).

It really is a great opportunity to come back to close the summer in style. Even if you have been once already in the season booking a short stay over a particular party is ideal.

WHAT’S ON IN SEPTEMBER

There’s very little change in terms of the clubbing calendar when September hits, as the weekly residencies are still going strong, although the crowds may get a little smaller, but not noticeably, with the veterans holding out for the last 2 weeks.

Back-end of the month, it becomes all about the closing parties as everyone goes all out to end the summer with a bang. Closing parties in Ibiza are world-renowned—think in-demand DJs, all-day parties, after-parties, and more right through to the first weekend of October.

Our closing parties typically take place across the last full week of the month and have produced some of the most iconic moments in Ibiza Rocks history, so you will not want to miss out.

IBIZA CLOSING PARTIES ARE NOT TO BE MISSED. BOOK SEPTEMBER FROM AS LITTLE AS €76 PER PERSON PER NIGHT

When is the best time to come to ibiza?

Every month of the summer has it’s perks, and unlike most ‘party’ holiday destinations in Europe; Ibiza is busy from the end of April all the way until mid-October in terms of it’s events calendar. The opening and closing party periods of the season always a special feel to themand there’s an indescribable buzz about the island.
