The majority of services by air are holiday charter flights from Europe, though scheduled international flights are also available from the UK and internal flights from Spanish mainland cities such as Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.
The Spanish national airline is Iberia (IB) (www.iberia.com).
From November to March, direct flights to Ibiza can be harder to find. However, you can still get there via Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia or Palma. Easyjet via Mallorca is the route with the shortest stop over times.

Travelling to Ibiza by Rail
Driving to Ibiza
Ibiza is an island so is not accessible by road. However, once you have arrived, there are many car hire options and taxis available to navigate the island.
Getting to Ibiza by boat
With the creation of high speed ferry links between the Spanish mainland and Ibiza, taking a ferry to the island is no longer the slow haul it once was. The main ports on the island areSan 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, is 2 hours and 15 minutes to Ibiza Town by hydrofoil and 4 hours 30 minutes to San Antonio by car ferry. Journey time from Valencia is around 3 hours. The longest route is from Barcelona, which can take up to around 8 hours. However, if you travel by catamaran, it can take as little as 3 hours and 45 minutes. 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 catamarans only operate in the summer months, usually April to September.
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 which 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.
Three operators run ferries from Barcelona to Ibiza; Balearia (www.balearia.com), Acciona Trasmediterránea (www.trasmediterranea.es) and Iscomar (www.iscomar.com). 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 any travel agency or online.
