If you are visiting in August, make sure you invest in a good fan or air conditioning as night time can be seriously warm and difficult to sleep if not!
The day times are scorching too and a couple of hours in the sun can be enough! Although the weather is lovely, you are also at risk of sunstroke if you spend too long in the sun so prepare to wear hats, sun cream and get plenty of shade! If you are planning on raving in the sun at events such as Ants or on OceanBeat boat party, then be sure to take plenty of water on board! August is another busy month in Ibiza, and there is typically more of a mixture of nationalities visiting in this month, with Italian and French also joining the British on the Island.
