What’s the weather like in Ibiza in May?
Ibiza sits in the Balearic Sea off the east coast of Spain and northern shores of Africa, which gives the island a typical Mediterranean climate. With summer just around the corner, you’ll get lots of sunshine and not much rain if you go there on holiday in May.
Ibiza’s quite a sheltered island because of its position close to mainland Spain and North Africa, while the Sa Talaiassa mountain brings a bit more protection to the east and west. As one of the summer’s early months, May sees sunshine hours getting longer and sea temperatures rising. Weather hazards such as dust storms from the Sahara Desert, tornadoes and water spouts are not very likely in May.
The average high temperature in Ibiza during May is 22ºC, so pack your best swimwear if you’re looking to impress your fellow partygoers. Don’t forget to bring some warmer things for the evenings though as temperatures averagely drop to 13ºC at night. The sea’s getting warmer and averages at 18ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from the mid-50s to just over 90%. Average rainfall’s 27mm over 7 rainy days.
During May you can expect 14 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. Take care of yourself in the sun as UV levels will be very high, while sunset’s around 9pm for most of May.
