Spending the Christmas holidays in Ibiza seems like an unusual idea, but it means discovering a side of the island that few people know. In recent years, in fact, the winter life of the island has been shown increasingly animated and offers the opportunity to enjoy the beaches and the sun without going too far and in places too exclusive.
During the Christmas season, Ibiza is an island full of decorated landscapes that convey a great sense of warmth, the atmosphere is lively and culturally varied.
The climate is pleasant and the nature exuberant, these characteristics provide perfect situations for outdoor activities: hiking, horse riding, cycling or boating, are just some of the sports that can entertain tourists who come during the holidays. The beaches of Ibiza, charming even in winter, deserted and with clear water, are the perfect setting for long walks or picnics on the beach.
Also in the different towns of the island it is possible to attend concerts, theatrical events, activities for children and Christmas markets with typical products of the island and its culture.
The tranquility of the island leaves more space also for the typical gastronomy, it is possible in fact to try all the winter dishes in small restaurants scattered among the green or with your feet in the sand. Ibiza’s tradition is the Nadal sauce, a kind of liquid nougat prepared with a mixture of very unique ingredients: almond paste, sugar, honey, spices and meat broth, which give this sauce a very intense flavor, but at the same time delicious.
On New Year’s Eve it is possible to participate in various events, including fireworks in the historic center and continue with many of the most famous nightclubs, such as Pacha, for example. The fun never fails on the island.
The festivities end on January 6 with the Dia de los Reyes Magos. On this day in Ibiza, as in the rest of the country, children receive gifts and in the streets there is a great party, huge floats full of color, the Three Kings, throw candies and chocolates to passers-by. A show that should not be missed.
