Santa Eulalia might be party island Ibiza’s third biggest town, but it’s a remarkably chilled-out resort. Santa Eulalia holidays tend to involve long days on the pretty beach, followed by leisurely dinners and drinks in relaxed, family-friendly restaurants. Located in the more subdued northern part of the island, Santa Eulalia has a real bohemian streak – with plenty of wellness-focused cafés serving healthy food, and elegant studios where you can hone your yoga technique.
As this is Ibiza, there is scope to visit a buzzing bar if you like, but this resort famed as the foodie capital of the island, and night-time pursuits tend to focus around eating and drinking well at one of its many fantastic restaurants. An essential element of holidays to Santa Eulalia, the resort’s broad sandy beach is reached via a stroll along a graceful palm-lined promenade. Once you’re there, sunloungers and umbrellas can be hired – for the whole day if you like. There’s no better place to lie back and soak up Santa Eulalia’s relaxing atmosphere.
Enjoy the views
Puig de Missa is Santa Eulalia’s original town centre. Head here for a moment of calm, to see its 16th-century church and to marvel at its views over the bay.
Make for Mariner’s Beach
Head to this 400-metre-long beach on the southern end of Santa Eulalia. From here, follow the pathway to the neighbouring resort of Siesta, where you can sunbathe, swim and relax in relative seclusion.
Dine in style
Calle San Vicente is the epicentre of Ibiza’s food scene. Grab an al-fresco table at one of the many brilliant restaurants and enjoy some authentic Spanish tapas or a plate of paella.
