Direct flights from Stansted to Ibiza take around two and a half hours, and booking early during busy periods is advised. The route is a popular one and flights get booked up quickly; if this means you need to take a connecting service, then a German city such as Cologne or Stuttgart will be the likely stopover destination.
Ibiza is an island of great contrast, which will likely determine your final destination once you arrive; whether that be Ibiza Town in the south, San Antonio to the west, or a quieter northern spot.
A number of public bus routes serve various parts of the island, such as the number 10 which runs between the airport, the Ibiza bus station, the ferry port of Formentera and San Jorge. This route is available all year round, with more frequent services through the peak summer months.
Route 9 serves San Antonio and San Jose, and provides an hourly service from June 1st to October 12th, with buses running until 3am in July and August. Route 24 serves Santa Eularia, Es Cana and Cala Nova between June 1st and September 30th, with buses running every hour between 7am and 11pm.
Taxis can become expensive when used to reach the more far-flung parts of Ibiza, which may lead to a preference for a hire car. Rental companies Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar and Hertz all have desks in the airport terminal.
