You have this marked a trip report - which it is not. Click on the abuse above and ask to have it removed.

I'm sorry - but 10 nights is 9 days - not 11. You need 2 nights in a city to have one full day there.

Also you are trying to reach 6 far flung places in that very limited time - so travel will eat up a lot of those few days.

If I were you I would focus on either Madrid/Barcelona or Madrid/Ibiza - if you really want to spend a lot of time just partying.

OR - you could spend you time in Andalucia. Be aware it s very hot there in August - highs of around 100 and temps up to 120 inland, although the shore will be cooler. This is by far IMHO the most fascinating part of Spain due to it's unique moorish heritage - if that interests you. We have been twice - once 10 days and once 12 days and have by no means seen everything we want to. But we go no later than April to avoid the worst of the heat.

Sorry - but you really need to focus your trip when you have limited yourself to so few days.

10 nights is 11 days.

Your itinerary is fine, why should you not see the places that appeal to you as part of a backpacking trip?

Check the train schedule to get between the cities and flight schedules to get to Ibiza. You can get from Barcelona to Pamplona is about 3.5 - 4 hours by train, then you can go from Pamplona to Granada via Madrid for example.

You can fly from several cities to Ibiza, for example Malaga-Ibiza. Check Vueling for flights between cities in Spain.

Budget tips:

Do as the locals and have your main meal at lunch-time (goes for all of Spain). Then most neighbourhood restaurants serve a bargain three course lunch Menu del Dia (Today's menu) with drinks included for some 8-14€. Outside the most beaten tracks, you'll find plenty of places closer to 8€ than 14€. Normally you can choose from at least three starters and three mains plus a couple of deserts.

In Madrid, you can have the hearty local speciality Bocadillo de Calamares (or a whole range of other fillings)for less than 3€ for both lunch and dinner. Several places in and around central and majestic Plaza Mayor.
Very popular with locals:

Several bars/restaurants serve a free tapa with every glass of whatever in the bar area.
