Where to stay in Ibiza in winter: Hotels & Agroturismos

Our hand-picked selection of the best places to stay in Ibiza this winter.

It feels a little strange to be referring to the beginning of 2024 as winter in Ibiza, given it's the hottest January in recent history, with temps soaring as high as 23 degrees during the day. Lucky locals are already hitting the beaches for some pre-season sunbathing, Ibiza town is bustling thanks to the famous post-holiday sales, the weekend markets are the heart of the island's sunny social scene and there are still plenty of great places to wine and dine your days and nights away. Winter tourism is booming and now's the time to check into our favourite year-round Ibiza boutique hotels and Agroturismos for a taste of authentic island life.
