A to Z Guide - Ibiza Christmas Special

It probably goes without saying that there will be no shortage of fabulous parties and special events happening all over Ibiza during the festive period so we compiled an A-Z Guide of what has caught our eye.

We know Christmas and associated possibilities can all get a little mind-boggling, so we hope that this "A to Z Quick Facts" list of some of our favourite restaurants, events and alternative pastimes (gifts, even?!) will help you enjoy the festive season to the fullest.

Editors Note:

We've updated this article twice now. Once to regrettably confirm the cancellation of an event and now, this latest edit, to share with you an extraordinary restaurant we discovered just after the original version of this article went live. Such is the standard of both food and service that on discovering the restaurant was catering for both Christmas Day and New Years, we simply had to share. May we please introduce you to: -
