Ibiza´s Climate is Ideal for Cycling
Unlike most of Europe, Ibiza offers a relatively warmer and drier climate for you to enjoy cycling when you´re there. The average temperature in March is about 18 degrees and can go all the way up to 25 degrees in August. With an average annual rainfall of 40 to 45 days, it´s almost always sunny in Ibiza.
These conditions are also ideal for setting up a camp in the forests of Ibiza and to reach there, cycling is undoubtedly the most suitable option.
Yes, we agree, this point is valid pretty much anywhere in the world. But that doesn´t change the fact that you could save hundreds of Euros during your visit to Ibiza if you decide to rent a bike for commute instead of spending your travel money on renting a car/scooter.
Even if you have saved some extra cash for this trip, you can always use it to get a better hotel for your stay in Ibiza while enjoying this tiny island on a bicycle.
