RELAXED IBIZA: Ibiza is not the biggest island of the Balearic Islands. Precisely because of the saturation on some of the other islands, we looked for an alternative that can offer everything: great cycling, beautiful nature, culture and a high level of culinary excursions.
Then you quickly end up on Ibiza. Ibiza exudes something in everything: a relaxed atmosphere, friendly islanders and beautiful beaches in the south.
But what do we "cyclists" get out of that?
We arrive outside the high season, when it is already a lot quieter and there is less partying on the party island. Less crowds and therefore more space to enjoy cycling. If you come in the spring (February through April) or in the fall (October), then traffic is only a third of the summer traffic. Nice, right?
