Our editor selects the best events from the Ibiza winter calendar this week.

It’s a tale of two seasons in Ibiza and the island has now made the transition from summer to winter, with residents and out-of-season holidaymakers already enjoying a more laid-back pace of life. Here, our editor selects the best things to do in Ibiza this winter season, from November 29 – December 05, 2021.

Sunset Yoga at Hostal La Torre

5pm – Tuesday November 30, 2021

The summer sunset season may be over in San Antonio, but the sun certainly still sets in the west! These days, La Torre Ibiza takes centre stage when it comes to watching the sun go down – set on the cliffside of Cap Negret, the venue exudes old school Ibiza vibes thanks to its rustic chic décor, laid-back vibes, breathtaking views and an exceptional DJ roster. And if you like your sunset with a side of wellness, there’s an early evening yoga session taking place by the sea on Tuesdays with instructor Jana – a truly magical open-air location in which to practice. Places are 15€ per person and are limited so book now to guarantee your space.

Cocktails & DJs at Paradise Lost

9pm – Thursday December 02 to Saturday December 04, 2021

Ibiza’s favourite drinking den, Paradise Lost, welcomes one and all to take a seat on the terrace or get cosy on the snug sofas indoors this winter, as you settle in for a night of fine cocktails, great music and plenty of good banter in the gypsy quarter of Sa Penya. Open from Thursday to Saturday from 9pm until 3am, you’ll be treated to music from some of Ibiza’s finest resident DJs and visiting guests on rotation. This week’s line-up includes French Connection with Jean Cedricon Thursday, Bekka Rawkins on Friday and An Evening with Mr Doris and Friends on Saturday. The off-season is when the action really heats up in this eclectic hotspot – you never know who you’ll meet! without heat on Mondays and students of all abilities are welcome to drop in and practice. After all, summer bodies are made in the winter but we need to take care of our minds and souls all year round.

Dinner, Aperitivo and Lunch at A Mi Manera

Thursday December 02 to Sunday December 05, 2021

Set in a beautifully restored ancient finca on the iconic San Juan ‘restaurant road’, A Mi Manera is surrounded by rich, working farmland that produces enough organic vegetables to support the restaurant’s farm-to-table ethos all year round. Open from from Thursday to Sunday in the off-season, guests can dine on classic Mediterranean cuisine with a strong Italian family influence with views looking straight over the beautiful veggie gardens. Dinner is hosted indoors from 7pm until 1am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays with music by special guest DJs and musicians. Friday nights also see the venue host an aperitivo with live music, while the secret garden style terrace is opened up on Saturdays and Sundays for lunch from 1pm. Reservations highly recommended.

Ibiza Talents at Lío Ibiza

Lío Ibiza has officially switched into winter mode, and while the cabaret performers have packed up their sequins, glitter and feathers for the season, the dancefloor is now officially open. This Saturday night, Ibiza Talents return to the Marina Ibiza venue from 11pm until 5am, curating a line-up featuring the finest local DJs and performers. With a view across the port to the iconic skyline of Dalt Vila, there’s no better dancefloor for partying in Ibiza in the off-season and you’ll need a vaccine certificate or negative PCR, TMA or PRAg diagnostic test to gain entry.

 ‘Tis the season to be shopping and Ibiza’s most iconic hippy market, Las Dalias, is the go-to place on the island for unique gifts created by artisans and designers. With hundreds of stalls to peruse, you can make a day of it and there’s certainly no shortage of temptation – from unique jewellery and boho accessories to fashion of all styles, art, quirky homewares and much more. There are also bars, an internationally themed restaurant, a laid-back Mediterranean café, food stalls, a juice bar and live music to keep your toes tapping as you make your way through the winding rows of stalls. Authentic Ibiza at its finest.

Sasha at Akasha Ibiza

10pm – Friday December 03, 2021

Ibiza’s oldest nightclub has undergone a seriously impressive revamp and is set to become this winter’s number one nightlife destination. Akasha Ibiza is the new moniker for the historical club space at Las Dalias, and it’s already boasting some hard-hitting line-ups that rival the summer months. This Friday, international legend Sasha steps up to the decks to headline the evening, with Unders warming things up from 10pm. It’s a new chapter in the history of nightlife in Ibiza, and after such a long period without clubbing you can expect this night to be a roadblock. Tickets are just 10€ and capacity is strictly limited, plus you’ll need to show a vaccination certificate or negative PCR or antigen test to gain access.
