Thinking about your next holiday on the wonderful island of Ibiza? Yes, it’s spectacular in summer, but don’t be fooled, it’s also spectacular at any time of the year, and March is not far behind. In fact, many travellers decide to come to Ibiza this month on holiday, and today, at Ibiza Go Car, we’ll tell you why! Find out what it’s like and what to do in Ibiza in March.
The weather in Ibiza in March
As you know, Ibiza enjoys a spectacular Mediterranean climate and warm temperatures almost all year round, making it an ideal destination to enjoy at any time of the year (although the favourite is the summer season). In addition, as you might expect, the Balearic Islands have little rainfall too, so you’re safe from the umbrella.
In Ibiza, we can enjoy long and warm summers that fill the alleys with happy people and, almost always, accompanied by their sophisticated wicker baskets and a fancy hat to spend the day on one of the stunning beaches or beach clubs by the sea. But don’t worry, the winters are also quite relaxed, with little rain and mild temperatures.
If you plan to come to Ibiza for a holiday in March, you have chosen a very good time, as you will be able to enjoy the sunshine and good temperatures, especially as the month progresses. On average, the temperature in Ibiza in March is 17ºC, ideal for relaxing under the sun in a hammock or on the beach. During the day, most days you will be able to wear a short-sleeved T-shirt, but during the afternoon and evening it may get a little chilly, so don’t forget to take a jacket.

If you come to Ibiza in March (and in practically any month), you have to visit the wonderful Mercat de Sant Joan. This popular market is one of the most famous on the island, both among local residents and travellers from all over the world. It is held every Sunday from 10:00hrs to 16:00hrs in the village square, and there you can find all kinds of delicious fresh and autochthonous products, as well as other local craft products. Now, I imagine all this in a natural, Mediterranean environment and accompanied by live music. You feel like it, don’t you? No doubt a top plan in Ibiza in March.
