Ibiza villas: Where to stay – Santa Eulalia

As Ibiza’s most expansive municipality, Santa Eulalia has a lot to offer – from secluded coves and large stretches of golden sand to cute villages and the main town itself. Homes in this area are a mix of traditional farmhouses complete with grass munching sheep to contemporary designer compounds and penthouse apartments overlooking the sea.

Santa Eulalia town is the island’s third biggest – a bustling commercial centre that has been reinvigorated by massive public works in recent years. Capped by a beautiful golden beach it contains every imaginable facility and amenity plus loads of cute boutiques, bars and restaurants. This area is the perfect family getaway, boasting many kid friendly activities and settings.

Local dining

Ask any local and they’ll chime in unison that the best addition to the area’s culinary scene in recent years is Passion Café, right in front of the fountains on the Paseo with beautiful views over the sea. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner alike, the menu offers something for everyone but pays special attention to vegans, vegetarians and lovers of the raw food movment. On the opposite side of the promenade, Vi Cool by Sergi Arola on the rooftop of the luxurious Aguas De Ibiza Lifestye & Spa eco-resort is a must do for haute cuisine tapas and high-end cocktails. Santa Eulalia is also famous for a busy little pedestrianised street dubbed ‘restaurant street’ – the nickname is unsurprising as you walk through to find every cuisine ever you could wish for.

Nearby attractions

Water sports abound from kite surfing at Cala Martina to jet skiing just about anywhere. A walk up the spiralling road to the local church is worth it for the amazing view and charming churchyard. Here you’ll find the Ethnographic Museum in a typical Ibicenco house. A gentle walk from town past the two beaches and along the river will bring you to the Roman bridge – try and spot the barruguets – mythical creatures with a trickster personality who live under bridges and in wells. Es Canar hippy market is just a stone’s throw away. For more dining highlights, the nearby cove of Sol d’en Serra is home to the famous Amante Ibiza.

Best beaches

Santa Eulalia beach is a long stretch of golden sand right in the centre of town. It’s great for kids and boasts loads of water sports. Other beaches nearby are Cala Martina, which is a favourite for kite surfers when the wind is up, the gorgeously unspoilt Cala Nova, tranquil Cala Pada and Playa Niu Blau. A trek to the secluded Cala Olivera is always rewarded with crystal waters and beautiful views.
