Is Ibiza safe for tourists?

Ibiza is a safe country for tourists, however like any populated area be sure to not carry too much cash and

exercise caution in crowded areas such as train and bus stations, airports to avoid pickpockets.

I recommend purchasing a hidden money belt, I take mine everywhere. See: Travel Accessories

6 Money Saving Tips in Ibiza:

1. SUNSETs are FREE 

Instead of heading to the famous sunset strip, head to the local supermarket grab a few drinks and then relax on the rocks or beach and watch the Sunset.

If you really want to sit in a bar head to  Calo des Moro where the view is spectacular but the bars are noticeably cheaper.

In the north of Ibiza lies a diamond sunset spot, the iconic beach of Benirras. See image below

2. Take the bus or shared transfer from the Airport

You can take the Bus from Ibiza Airport to San Antonia for alot less then a taxi!

The L9 bus departs every 30 minutes from the airport and the average travel time is 45 minutes.
You can also share a taxi or transfer with another group going to San Antonia.
The average price of taxi trip from Ibiza airport to San Antonio is 45€. Without traffic, the ride takes around 25 minutes.
You can book budget airport transfers here: Best Airport Transfer Providers?

Insider Tip:

Some hotels also offer discounted transfers so enquire with them after booking.

Warning: Be careful of “Fake Taxis” these can leave you out of pocket or even rob and leave you in the middle of nowhere!

3. Buy food from the Supermarket!

Eating out in nice restaurants everyday can really eat into your budget. I recommended heading the local supermarket and grab some sandwiches or pastries. If you have facilities you can even cook at home.

If you must eat out, try the KFC or Mcdonalds yes they arent healthy but are cost effective. On the last day treat yourself to a nice recovery meal!

4. PRE DRINK before going out! 

As a former student I know that PRE DRINKS help you save so much money, they are also really social. Get chatting to the hotel room next door and head to shop buy some drinks and mingle before heading out. You will spend alot less out and have also made some new friends!

5. Be selective about events 

You don’t need to go a big event every night! Look at the DJ line ups with your friends and pick which you really want to see. If your here for longer have a couple of rest days in between or head to the smaller bars a couple of nights.

6. Book Hotels in Advance!
