Santa Eulalia holidays shake things up by steering you away from the main drags. What you get here’s a down-the-middle split of laidback and lively.
Packs a punch
Santa Eulalia just edges its way onto the podium when you weigh up Ibiza’s biggest towns. It’s diddy compared to San Antonio and Ibiza Town, but has more going on than next-door neighbour Es Cana. It’s home to historic sites, like the hilltop Puig de Missa church, and has a food and drink scene that’s built an upmarket reputation over the years.
The shoreline’s split into a couple of gently curving strips here, both of which are scattered with sand. The bottom of the two’s a smidge quieter, and has a tree-smothered hill that acts like a big bookend. Switch to the other sweep, and you’ll be brushing shoulders with sea-facing hotels and the town’s classy marina. This edge-of-the-bay spot’s heaving with luxury yachts, and the waterside walkways are home to equally swanky seafood places.
This place gets a lot of love for how adaptable it is. Families sign on the dotted line for its watersports, kid-friendly hotels and laidback atmosphere. But it gets a thumbs-up from the best-of-both crowd, too, who are after a toned-down take on Ibiza’s clubbing scene. They’re happy to join the beachgoers by day, and drift across to Calle San Vicente – also known as Restaurant Street – after dark to grab a pre-bar-hopping bite.
