If you have just arrived at the Island, if you are thinking of moving, or if you visit the Island during your vacation time, it is important to be informed of means of transportation in Ibiza; which will allow you to move around comfortably and without getting broke trying.
Below we detail 7 means of transportation in Ibiza:
1Your own car or motorcycle
The best choice if you are going to live in Ibiza is to bring your own car in the ferry (there are ships with departures to Ibiza from Barcelona, Denia, Gandía and Valencia. You can also bring your motorcycle on the ferry. Both choices will allow you to move freely around the Island and the safety that comes in driving a vehicle that you already know.
2 Renting a car
A recommended choice if you want to feel free to move around and get to know the island and its surroundings. You can rent a car for a few days or for a long season. If you already live in Ibiza, we recommend you use this discount to rent a car by booking your reservation at the following link.
3Rent a motorcycle for a few days or a season
Another comfortable and less costly choice would be to rent a motorcycle; that way you can avoid traffic jams and parking troubles. If you plan to rent a motorbike for the whole season, we recommend you to take a look at Cooltra‘s long-term rental discounts.
Ibiza has bus lines that move through the entire Island during day and night. This way they avoid traffic jams, reduce contamination and avoid possible accidents. In this link, you can check on the routes of every bus on the Island, along with their schedules. Also, if you are under 18 years old, you can use the bus for free with the T-Jove card.
5Ferries between the Islands or the beaches
If you like the sea, moving on a ferry between beaches or from Ibiza to Formentera is the best choice and a different way to get to know Ibiza. The residents of the Island have a 75% discount to travel to Formentera and the rest of the Balearic Islands. Balearia connects the Pitiusas and gives us the possibility of taking our car from one island to another throughout the whole year. We recommend you to take a look at the Balearia club card, with which you will get discounts on all your trips (which are added to the official Balearic residents discount). In addition to that, some shipping lines such as Aquabus, organize excursions to go to several beaches and coves on the same day, or to enjoy sunsets that will leave you speechless, such as in Benirrás.
Depending on which area you live in and on how easy it is to move around on a bike there (some areas of the Island have a cycle path, however, it is not the usual). You can move around on a bike to do daily tasks or to discover the wonderful routes on the Island.
Of course, you also have the choice of taking a taxi at any time from wherever you are. Definitively a taxi is the safest and most comfortable way to move around Ibiza when you go to a party. You can find out about the prices Ibiza’s taxis here. Important: in Ibiza there is a serious problem of “pirate taxis” that take advantage of tourists offering prices that can triple the official rates. Beware of any taxi driver who proposes to negotiate fares and who does not carry an official vehicle (white, with the shield of the town to which it belongs on the door, and the luminous sign of “taxi” and its green light at the top).
