Getting to Ibiza by boat
The creation of high-speed ferry links between the Spanish mainland and Ibiza have made taking a ferry to the island much quicker than it once was. The main ports on the island are San Antonio and Ibiza Town. Services operate from the Spanish mainland ports of Valencia, Barcelona and Denia (located between Alicante and Valencia).
Journey time from Denia, the closest mainland port, to Ibiza Town, is around 2 hours by hydrofoil. Journey time from Valencia is around 5 hours. The longest route is from Barcelona, which can take up to about 8 to 9 hours. There is also a service to Palma on the island of Mallorca (Majorca), as well as Formentera. For more route and pricing information visit www.balearia.com.
It is worth noting that ferries operate more frequently during the summer months, usually from May to October.
Cruise ships taking in Spain, France and Italy often stop at the main port, Ibiza Town. Typical excursions include Formentera, a tour of Ibiza, or a boat trip with lunch on one of the many beaches. If possible, pick a cruise that spends the evening or at least departs after dark, as the Dalt Vila is stunning at night and evening is the best time to explore the town.
Two operators run ferries from Barcelona and Valencia to Ibiza: Balearia (www.balearia.com) and Acciona Trasmediterránea (www.trasmediterranea.es). Balearia also operates a service from Denia to Ibiza. Passengers can travel on foot or by car, and there are a number of seating and cabin options once on board. Tickets can be purchased from a travel agency or online.
