Yachting season and weather in Ibiza
The climate in Ibiza is the Mediterranean. There are warm winters and not too hot summers. In late autumn and early spring, there are few tourists in Ibiza — the rainy season begins. Best time to travel to Ibiza — all year round.
The region is relatively easy to sail by yacht. Therefore, even a beginner can cope. But in the area between Ibiza and Formentera, you need to be careful, because there are sharp cliffs and shoals. If you sail on safe and secure routes, there will be no problem. The shallow waters of La Bota locate about one nautical mile northwest of Isla es Vedra. This place is a known but not designated hazardous area. Care must take here — there is a large rock just below the surface.
Wind conditions in Ibiza depend on mainland Africa. The cold Poniente winds blow from the southwest and the warm Levant from the southeast. In spring and autumn, Sirocco comes from the south and causes storms. Strong winds are from October to April.
The ebb and flow are predictable and regular here. At the height of the summer season in the Mediterranean, they occur twice a day.
The number of hours of sunshine in Ibiza is 2700-2800 hours per year, and the amount of rain is between 400 and 450 millimeters per year. The average temperature is + 22 ° C.
