Ibiza Safety

Ibiza Safety & Emergencies

Ibiza is generally considered a safe island with a friendly local community. However, just like anywhere else in the world, you need to keep you wits about you and use common sense to make sure you don't fall prey to petty crime like pick-pocketing and bag snatching. Especially in the summer months, thieves see the influx of carefree happy holidaying tourists that arrive on the island as a perfect target. Take special care when in the tourist hotspots like Ibiza town and San Antonio de Portmany. With a little forward thinking, Ibiza safety shouldn't be a problem.

    Some Personal Safety Tips:
  • Always keep an eye on your belongings.
  • Use purses with zipsand sling them across your chest instead of over one shoulder.
  • Consider buying a money belt, which fits comfortably under your clothes and holds all of your important documents and money.
  • If you rent a car, make sure everything is out of sight and never leave anything of value- not even in the boot.
  • Don't carry all of your valuable items- passport, money, credit cards- in one pocket. Leave photocopies of important documents in a different place and if possible, use your front pockets instead of your back pockets.
  • Carry around a copy of your passport and leave the original in a safe in your hotel.
  • Only take cash with you that you plan to spend that day and when possible, avoid going to ATM's alone.
  • Be especially careful in crowded tourist hotspots and on the beach - never leave valuables unattended
