Santa Eularia, the most emblematic village of Ibiza

Ibiza has thousands of places where to enjoy a holiday, but if you are one of those travellers looking for calmness, tradition, the sound of the sea in the morning, sandwiches in traditional bars, walks around narrow streets and the Mediterranean at its best, Santa Eularia des Riu is your destination.

Santa Eularia des Riu, Ibiza

It is said to be the perfect place for a family vacation, as it has the most relaxing and entertaining ambiance for children. In addition, it features tourist attractions for all ages, beyond nightlife and the great discos and clubs of electronic music of the moment.

Santa Eularia des Riu is unique, not only because it features the only river of the Balearic Islands, but because it keeps the authentic essence that the island of Ibiza lost with the arrival of the mass tourism of parties, sun and beach. It is a small place of turquoise waters and white sand.

Its beaches and coves are a beehive in summer, but much more welcoming and quiet than those in Sant Antoni, Sant Josep or Vila. Ideal for all type of travellers, Santa Eularia des Riu’s beaches are perfect for children due to their shallow waters and their sandy areas for walking and playing. Rocky coves, despite their beauty, might be dangerous for children and of difficult access.

Regarding accommodation, there are thousands of options, as despite the calm and authentic ambience, Santa Eularia is one of the tourism centres in Ibiza. There you will find Adults Only hotels, hotels for children, classic beach hotels, hotels with chill out and beach club… Whatever you may need. Some examples of accommodations with a good quality price ratio are the recently inaugurated IBEROSTAR Santa Eularia, the Tropic Garden or the Fergus Paraiso Beach, located in Es Canar beach.

For eating, do not miss one of the most famous sandwich bars in the island, the Costa Bar, and try its delicious cured ham sandwich. But if you want to try a more elaborated local dish, you will find options for all tastes in the historic centre of the village. Tapa hopping is also a must-live experience in Santa Eularia. It is true that in summer you will have to make your way through the crowd to get a tapa, as many people go to Santa Eularia to eat.

For a morning or a cool night in the island, instead of visiting a disco, we recommend you an outdoor experience: the hippy markets. The Punta Arabi and Las Dalias markets are in Santa Eularia, one of them really close to Es Canar and the other one in the area of Sant Carles, one of the must visit villages of the island.

Another of the villages near Santa Eulalia and considered one of the gems of the island for its traditional essence is Santa Gertrudis. It is also a good area for discovering some local delicacies, prepared with fresh products from the orchards of this small locality.

In Santa Eularia, we recommend you walk up to its highest peak, Puig de Missa. It is worth the effort, as you will be able to contemplate a panoramic view of this coastal area of Ibiza.

This village has good communications with the centre of Ibiza (Vila) and with the airport by public transport. The best option if you want to make the most of your time and to visit more areas of Ibiza or plan trips to its different beaches is that you rent a car or a motorbike. Buses are not the best option, especially if you are not going to stay in the island for a long time.

Ole Hotels, the perfect option for a family vacation in the Canary and Balearic Islands.

Travelling with your couple or friends is very different to travelling with your family and children. Although travelling with your family is a unique experience (especially if your children are between 5 and 10 years old), the experience might turn an authentic drama if you do not book the perfect hotel in advance, the one that covers all your needs and ensures a safe and comfortable stay.

There are just as many types of hotels as there are families. While in destinations like Seville or Malaga you can choose hotels with half board plan, the best option in other areas of the Spanish geography like the Canary or Balearic Islands is the All Inclusive service offered by chains like Ole Hotels. A chain with experience and many good reviews regarding the services it offers. Its best advantage? Its excellent quality/price ratio and the location of its hotels.
