Activities in Winter on Ibiza

November 17th, 2008 - 3:16 pm Posted in ibiza, winter tourism | Comments (0)

One of the big adjustments to Ibiza for those of us from chillier Northern Europe is the idea that winter is a time for enjoying the outdoors – not hiding from it.

In our native climes winter is often an excuse to hunker down and hibernate. We wrap up tight in big coats, drape ourselves in metres of woolly scarves and pull on gloves. Not coincidentally we turn to comfort food and, often, even the most dedicated outdoor-lovers avoid anything but essential walking.

The whole polarity is reversed in Ibiza though. Summer is hot, frenetic and hectic. Roads are packed, beaches are overrun and the gyms are full of dancers and sun-worshippers buffing up their bodies for the season. Winter, when everything turns down a few notches, is the perfect time to reconnect, reinvigorate and renew your active life.

If you enjoy running, biking or rollerblading bright winter afternoons are the perfect time to practice your sport. I’m a runner and the mixture of bright sunshine and fresh breezes over the last few weeks have been bliss, as is the selfish pleasure of running on perfectly empty beaches.
