What’s the weather like in Ibiza in October?
Sitting off the east coast of Spain, Ibiza enjoys lovely warm weather in October. You’ll get lots of sun if you’re going to this Balearic island at this time, which is nice and busy thanks to the season’s closing parties.
Ibiza’s location in the Balearic Sea means it’s sheltered by mainland Spain and North Africa. The weather’s similar across the island because of this, and also as it’s relatively flat. Popular holiday spots in the east and west do get a bit of protection from the Sa Talaiassa mountain, which is 475m high.
The average high temperature in Ibiza during October is 24ºC, perfectly warm enough to chill out on the beach all day. You should bring a few warmer things for the evenings, as though it’s still pleasant, temperatures can cool to 15ºC at night. The average sea temperature’s 22ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from just under 60% to over 90%. Average rainfall’s 54mm across ten rainy days.
There’s still lots of sun in October, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate so take care in the sun, which sets after 7.30pm at the start of the month; this gradually gets earlier before the end of daylight saving takes another hour off towards the end of October.
Things to Do
The weather’s still great for hitting the beach in October, and there’s some lovely ones to go to. Try Cala Xarracaor with its white sands or Cala Jondal in the south west. The capital Ibiza Town has a lively atmosphere and lots of bars and clubs as well as a pretty old town. Just to the south you’ll find Playa den Bossa, which is known for its nightlife and has famous beach bars like Bora Bora. Head to the north and Cala Benirrás for a spectacular sunset, and remember that the closing parties will be in full swing during October, so plan your stay with this in mind.
