Deciding how to get from Ibiza to Málaga is relatively straightforward. Unless there is good reason not to, flying is the easiest option for most people. This is the case even though the majority of flights require a change of plane at airports in Mallorca, Madrid or Barcelona. The fastest flights are direct ones taking one hour twenty minutes but these services do not operate every day. The next quickest option are indirect flights taking around two hours forty minutes, including the time taken to change planes at the stopover airport. Those who do not want to fly can choose to take a ferry to the coastal city of Valencia on the mainland and then complete the onward journey to Málaga by bus, although this involves two long journeys.

They arrive into Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport, which is the main airport for the Costa del Sol and is situated seven miles outside the city of Málaga. Again, taxi and bus services connect Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport with the city itself.

The current recommendation is to allow two hours. This makes a minimum total journey time of three hours twenty minutes.

Two ferry companies, Balearia and Transmiterranea, operate the route from the terminal in Ibiza Town. Between them, the two companies run up to eleven sailings per week, although weather conditions may sometimes impact services. Fortunately, during the high summer season, weather disruption is rare. Most weeks, at least one ferry leaves almost every day of the week.
