Going to Ibiza is exciting, and even just planning such a trip can bring chills, which can make one easily forget to pack everything they might need. Of course, having a great time is granted, but you wouldn’t want anything to worsen the experience, which is why packing everything you want and need is a must. On the other hand, one also needs to do a bit of research just to check and be sure what to expect and what to prepare, so don’t let thoughts about partying all night make you forget something.
When it comes to clothes and the outfits you will need to pack for your Ibiza trip, it is more than certain that most of the time during the day, you will wear a swimsuit. This island has some of the world’s prettiest beaches, and there is no doubt that you will spend the entire day exploring them. You can also forget about the numerous pool parties, which means a swimsuit is the piece of clothing you should pack first.
Walking over the hot sand barefoot is something many people simply adore, but others find it too hot, so packing a pair of flip-flops or sandals is a must. Of course, you will need some footwear even if you prefer walking barefoot, so make sure to put at least one comfortable pair of them on the Ibiza packing list.
It’s simply impossible to think about spending a day at the beach swimming and sunbathing without a towel, and even though this is an essential thing to bring, you would be surprised at how many people forget to bring towels. Of course, the resort you stay at will always have towels ready for you, however you should have a different towel for showering and the beach. You can also buy towels almost everywhere you go so don’t worry if you don’t have one, but if you do make sure that it is on your Ibiza packing list.
Although the first thing when someone mentions Ibiza is long sandy beaches, there are more locations on this amazing island to explore, and wearing flip-flops while exploring can be pretty uncomfortable. Because of that, when thinking about things to pack for Ibiza, add some smart sneakers, sport shoes or closed-toe footwear, and you can visit every hidden gem, also you will need some comfortable shoes for dancing all night. Ladies, you don’t need heels for nightclubs, unless you are going to a fancy dinner where you don’t have to walk too much.
The first and most important thing that needs to be mentioned is that here, you can feel free to wear whatever you want without anyone questioning your style. Ibiza is a great destination where you can use all your creativity and have as many accessories as you love, which is yet another reason why Ibiza is such a popular destination for many. Quirky accessories and pieces of jewelry are more than welcome here, and you can stand out from the rest by wearing something that makes you feel happy. Rings, necklaces, ankle chains, etc., are just some of the things you can bring, and we leave this up to you and your personal preferences and likings.
Ibiza is an island with a Mediterranean climate, which means you should pack lightly, especially if visiting during summer. Summer in Ibiza is long and hot, and bringing a few light dresses, trousers, and skirts is enough. The great thing about that is that you will not need a huge suitcase, which will make your traveling much easier. On the other hand, if you plan to visit Ibiza in the early or late in the season such as May or October, make sure to pack something warm as we mentioned below.
If there is one item that everyone considers a must while at a beach or when traveling to some exotic destination which Ibiza surely is, it is sunglasses. Now, there are many models, types, and colours to choose from, and the great thing is that you cannot go wrong regardless of what design you choose. On the other hand, besides being a fashion choice, remember that the weather is hot and that you also need to have sunglasses to protect your eyes. Luckily, even if you forget your favourite pair, there are so many options to choose from on the island, and one of the best places to find a unique designs are Hippy Markets.
For those who do not know, we need to say that white colour reflects sun rays and makes us feel much better during sunny days than we would if we wear dark-colour clothes. Because of that, the colour that should dominate in every suitcase that goes to Ibiza is white or some other bright colour. It is the essential rule of making the packing list for Ibiza, so avoid wearing black pieces of clothing or be prepared to get strongly hit by the sun.
One might wonder why anyone would need a sweater on an island known for its hot weather, but wearing a light sweater when the night comes can be ideal. Remember that off season and in May and October, the nights can get a bit colder so definitely bring at least one piece of jumper or sweater and one pair of trouser or jeans. Also remember that some nightclubs such as Club Chinois don’t allow males to wear short trousers.
If you do a little research before traveling to Ibiza, you will see that it has more than 300 sunny days over the year, which is a lot of sun. Besides thinking just about parties and swimming, you need to be prepared for the sunrays, as we all know how painful sunburns can be and how unpleasant sunstroke can feel. Both these conditions are extremely dangerous, and you need to protect yourself and prevent them. Wearing a sunhat is one of the easiest and the most effective ways, plus it looks pretty fashionable.
For most people, nights in Ibiza are reserved for parties, and if you are one of them, make sure to bring your favourite outfits for the clubs. However, try to pack something comfortable, as the party never stops there, and the only way to have a memorable vacation is to be spontaneous, so you don’t want uncomfortable clothes to stop you. As for the shoes, high heels always look great but wear them only if they are super comfortable because you surely don’t want to quit dancing because of sore feet.
Such an obvious thing yet so many people forget these and only realize at the airport! Passport, ID or driving license and the boarding pass are the things you should pack first!
A toiletries bag is a convenient way to keep all of your personal hygiene items organised and easily accessible while you travel. From hair gels, toothbrush, toothpaste, facial cleanser, moisturizer, to deodorant, perfumes and anything else you might need. Note that if you only have hand luggage, any liquids must be below 100ml.
A bumbag, also known as a waist bag or fanny pack, is a small bag that is worn around the waist or hips. This accessory is probably one of the most important things you should have on any holiday. Convenience is the key factor here as you can fit your wallet, phone, keys and anything else that you have on you into these little bags!
This one is a must, especially for people who have sensitive skin and can use only certain sunscreen. It goes without saying that having a protection layer that will keep your skin fresh and protect it from harmful UV lights is a must regardless of where you go, and Ibiza is no exception. Of course, there are plenty of sunscreen products to buy on the island, but bringing the brand and the type that suits your skin the most is always a much better idea. The goal is to get a tan and have the best time while in Ibiza, so make sure to have sunscreen on your Ibiza packing list.
After-sun lotion is a great product to bring with you to Ibiza. It can help soothe and moisturize your skin after a day in the sun. When using after-sun lotion, make sure to follow the instructions on the label and apply it generously to any areas of your skin that have been exposed to the sun. It’s also important to continue using sunscreen to protect your skin from further damage.
Okay, even though this isn’t a must-have item, it’s always good to be prepared, and it cannot get better than when you have all you might need in one place. Going to the beach does not require a lot of things, but you will still need some towels, drinks, sunscreen, and a bottle of water. That is why having a beach bag can come in pretty handy as you can pack everything you need for an entire day you will spend at the beach without having to go multiple times to your room because you have forgotten something. Besides that, a sack or beach bag can be a great solution when sightseeing , as you can bring all essentials.
Spain uses Type C and Type F electrical sockets, which are also known as the European standard socket, however if you’re coming from the UK, US or any other country with a different socket then make sure to add it to your list! Don’t worry if you don’t have one as you can buy these at the airport.
Everyone wants to have fun, and regardless of whether you are at the pool at a resort or swimming in the ocean, pool floats can be a great way to enhance the entire experience. Yes, you can spend hours beside the pool or at the beach working on your tan, but why not use great pool floats where you can sit or lay back with your favourite drink in your hand and simply cool down and float along the coastline? There really isn’t a better way to relax and simply enjoy everything this place has to offer, and on the plus side, there are so many pool floats to choose from, so finding one that suits your preferences the most shouldn’t be that big of an issue. Don’t worry if you don’t have one at home, there are plenty of shops selling them in every resort in Ibiza!
The most important thing during the hot summer days is to stay hydrated, which is why you need to drink enough water during your staying in Ibiza. Tap water is safe to drink, but most people cannot stand the taste it has because of chlorine used for its purification and high levels of salt and calcium. Because of that, it is probably a better idea to use bottled water, but since most of them come in plastic bottles, consider buying bigger bottles and pouring water into a reusable bottle. In that way, you will reduce plastic waste and costs, as bigger bottles are usually much cheaper. Please note only bring this if you have checked in luggage as you can only have a max of 100ml in your hand luggage.
It is a good idea to bring a power bank on holiday, especially if you plan to use your electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, or cameras frequently. While you may have access to power outlets in your hotel or vacation rental, there may be times when you are out and about and unable to charge your devices. A power bank allows you to charge your devices on the go, giving you peace of mind and ensuring that you can stay connected and take photos or videos as needed.
Maybe for some people this one isn’t an essential item however if you love to read, Kindle or a book must be on your Ibiza packing list for many reasons. You will surely want to relax and take a break from parties, and reading your favourite book while lying on the beach and listening to the waves is the best way to recharge batteries and prepare for the next going out. It is much more practical to bring one small device with many books on it than to carry around heavy books in a suitcase and you do not need to plan what you will read next, as you can read whatever you feel to in a certain moment.
If one thing is granted regarding your voyage to Ibiza is that at least one thing here will leave you in awe. Now, to enjoy your vacation and use the time spent here to the fullest, you want to be prepared well. No one can prepare you for the unique vibe of this island and a one-of-a-kind experience, but you can prepare and pack for Ibiza everything you might need in advance. Of course, the main thing is to pack essentials, as with everything else you can find in Ibiza. We hope you found this article useful for your next Ibiza holiday and let the packing start!
