Getting to know Ibiza by boat is wonderful, which is why more and more people decide to rent a boat to get to know the most amazing corners of this beautiful island. Of course, if you do, you may have doubts about where to moor in Ibiza. In the following guide we tell you where you can moor your boat.
Mooring in Ibiza: where to moor your boat?
There are many possibilities for mooring your boat in Ibiza. There are many options and locations so that you can leave it comfortably and in an area close to your main points of interest, to discover the island in your own way.
Ibiza has 8 ports with different types of moorings all over the island. In addition, most of them are very well equipped with services such as running water for cleaning the boats, electricity, petrol station for refuelling, telephone, Internet, bars, restaurants, laundry services and much more.
When you look at the different types of harbours available, you will see that they offer different types of moorings and sizes for small boats, jetskis, sailboats, yachts or even mega yachts. In any case, our advice is to choose the right type of charter mooring based on:
● The length of the yacht
● The beam
● The draft
● The experience of the person mooring the boat.
From there you should ideally look for a mooring size for your boat that is ⅓ larger than the size of the boat. This way you will be able to manoeuvre easily.
Of course, it is also important to consider the length of time the boat will be in port when ordering a mooring on the island. It can be days, weeks, the whole year, a season, etc. Although the demand is high and there are many requests – especially in summer – the truth is that there are different types of moorings available.
From there, you will have to take into account the price, as there are prices per day, per week, per month, per season, etc. Normally, the longer the length of the mooring, the higher the price. A rate that is also influenced by demand and availability.
With all this clear, below we show you what are some of the best ports to moor in Ibiza. They are as follows:
Ibiza Magna / Marina Port Ibiza

Where to anchor in Ibiza?
Apart from ports where you can moor in Ibiza, you can also drop anchor at night in some spectacular coves such as Cala Vedella, Cala Llonga, Playa des Jondal or Cala Benirrás.
When anchoring in these coves, you must be aware that it is not possible to anchor on the posidonia oceanica. You can see the prohibited areas on the Atlas Posidonia website for free anchoring. We also recommend booking a buoy if you wish to spend the night in more protected areas.
With these options, mooring your boat in Ibiza and enjoying its charms couldn’t be easier, we hope you enjoy it!
