 Ibiza - Profile

Location

The city of Ibiza is located on a hill on the south eastern side of the island and is surrounded by impressive fortifications. It offers a colourful ambience with its narrow lanes. Before June and after September, when the riotous night clubs are closed, this is a quiet place with a real Mediterranean feel.

Position 38° 54'09"N, 01° 26'42"E (Puerto Ibiza Harbour)

Position 38° 58'49"N, 01° 32'13"E (Santa Eulalia harbour)

Position 38° 58'27"N, 01° 17'43"E. (San Antonio harbour)

Clearance

This is a Port of Entry.

See the Noonsite/Spain/Formalities page for details of clearance.

Docking

Marinas
There are several marinas on Ibiza; see entries below.

Anchoring
The area between the breakwater and Marina Botafoch is designated and marked as "No Anchoring". This rule is now being more rigourously enforced and boats are being fined if they ingnore this rule.

The only area anchoring is allowed is below the cathedral in Ibiza Town, but this is uncomfortable at any time and untenable with any weather from the southern sector. Its beneath a cliff, so to access the town by dinghy, you will need to go around the western breakwater, into the inner harbour.

Cruisers have reported being removed from the anchorage on the East side of the harbour and were told that nobody was now allowed to use the anchorage on the West side under the Cathedral either. Please let us know updates if you try anchoring here.

Other Moorings/Anchorages
There are several bays around the island (including Es Oalmador and Salinas) which have official mooring buoys/floating pontoons run by Ports IB.

These can be booked in advance via the website - www.portsib.es. You need to register first which can be a problem if using Internet Explorer. Mozilla / Firefox work better. You will need to attach a scanned copy of the ship's registration to the form.

Puerto de San Antonio

Puerto de San Antonio is on the NW coast of Ibiza and is the other major harbour on the Island. It is a serious tourist destination, although in the Spring and Autumn is a nice place to visit. You can anchor in the bay free of charge off-season, however approx. 80 mooring buoys are deployed by Club Nautico San Antonio (Es Nautic) for the summer, which greatly reduces available space for anchoring.

The mooring buoys, like in most of the Balearics, are in use by 1st June. Yachts at anchor are normally evicted by mid to end of May. The mooring buoys cover the area sheltered by the harbour wall. Buoys tend to be completely booked throughout the summer (probably by charter companies).

To try and obtain a mooring for the night, the process is to call Es Nautic on the day you want to visit, by 0900 (Tel: 971 340645 - they speak good English), or e-mail reservas@esnautic.com.

You will then be added to the waiting list and will receive a call by 13.30 to confirm (or not) your allocation of a buoy. The nightly charge includes a water taxi, use of the Club's facilities and free Cava in the Club.

It is also possible to berth at the Club Nautico marina or at the IB pontoons. Both the marinas suffer from movement of traffic in the bay.

Subject - Mooring buoys - San Antonio, Ibiza – from Nick Ellis, SV ONAWAY

Arrived yesterday (3rd May 2016) and currently there are no mooring buoys in the bay and anchoring is pretty much exactly as it was before Club Nautico San Antonio (Es Nautic) decided to lay mooring buoys. I suspect however that anchoring is a little risky given the existence of the infrastructure to support 80 moorings shortly to be deployed.

These mooring buoys, like most in the Balearics, will be in place by 1st June. I suspect therefore that progressively those at anchor will be evicted by mid to end May. There is still plenty of room to anchor here, but the mooring buoys cover the area sheltered by the harbour wall.

I am told by the Marina office in Es Nautic that once installed these buoys are completely booked throughout the summer, charter companies no doubt. Should you want to take a mooring the process, as described, is to call them on the day by 0900 (Tel: 971 340645 - they speak good English). You will then be added to the waiting list and will receive a call by 13.30 to confirm your allocation of a buoy. I suspect e-mail reservas@esnautic.com will have the same result.

Mooring Buoy costs for 12m/13m - 2.23E/m plus VAT, no mention of G5 tax so that's interesting. So 32E/night for 12m. I understand that this includes a water taxi, use of facilities and free Cava in the Club.

For those interested in berthing at the Club Nautico, like we did. Costs for 12m including water and elec. are:
April - 13E, May - 20E, Jun - 45E, Jul/Aug - 75E.
However they have now reduced the beam measurement for 12m to 3.7m, so for the larger "girls" you will be moved up to the 13m rate, which is:
Apr - 17E, May - 25E, Jun - 59E, Jul/Aug - 100E.
All plus VAT and G5 tax (2.3E/day for 11.6m).

Whilst San Antonio can be "dubious" land side, is is strategic and probably the best anchorage on Ibiza. Es Nautic is very smart and probably the most technically enabled marina I have visited. The marinero's are excellent, they need to be.
We are here for 3 nights at 16E / night in May. They have a generous discount rate for the CA (until mid June) of 20% and if you complete a feedback form they give you a free night to be taken between Sept and June (inc), the following year for most.

Finding a mooring place in July - August is getting very difficult, certainly in Ibiza city where the length of the boat is obviously the only parameter that counts.
Maria Ibiza and PD de Santa Eulalia are the 2 marinas where visitors can get a place but only when you book weeks in advance.
