Easter in Ibiza is a great time to visit and stay in an Ibiza vacation rental. Generally it is a much more laid-back time than the summer months, perfect for recharging your batteries with a little post-winter sunshine.
Easter is a very important season for the Catholic church across all of Spain, and Ibiza is no exception. Many people choose to rent a villa in Ibiza near local towns as you are likely to see many parades taking place, and the streets are decorated with flowers and crosses.
One of the biggest events falls on Good Friday, where the cofradias, the people charged with looking after the statues, take part in a huge procession from the cathedral in Ibiza Town. The cofradias will dress in different coloured robes and wear a tall, cone shaped hood which is used to hide the suffering on their faces and signify their yearning to be closer to heaven.
This is an old-age tradition that has been virtually unchanged for centuries. The cofradias are accompanied by marching bands, church officials, large floats, and various other groups. Visiting some of the island’s towns at this time of year can be a bit strange as some hotels and bars will still be boarded up from the winter months and are not yet ready for the summer season. But if you travel away from the main holiday resorts and hot spots, there is still a huge range of things to see and do.
With an average temperature of 19-22 degrees Celsius, it is still warm enough for relaxing at the beach or at your villa with a pool in Ibiza with a glass of wine and good book.
