Santa Eulalia (Santa Eulària des Riu in Catalan) is both the name of the village and its municipality. The municipality, on the east coast of Ibiza Town, is an area where tradition meets the modern world. Families have liked this area as a holiday destination for years. It has beautiful villages and towns like Jesús, San Carlos, Santa Eulalia and Santa Gertrudis which provide fun throughout the whole year. Villages like Es Canar and Cala Llonga become more vibrant as soon as the tourist season starts. The backdrop of the coastline reveals some fantastic beaches and bays for you to discover and the municipality is also the proud owner of the only river on the island which flows through the town of Santa Eulalia. In this area you are also close to the famous markets of Punta Arabi in Es Canar and Hippie Market Las Dalias in San Carlos.
The town of Santa Eulalia is the third largest resort on the island. The cosmopolitan and cozy atmosphere go hand in hand, therefore it’s a great town to be in all year round. The original old town was built on a high hill at the west of the modern centre that Santa Eulalia is today. Atop the hill you find a 16th century church, built as part of the defenses against pirates. The church is overlooking the village. We recommend taking a stroll on top of that hill, the Puig de Missa, and watch the old houses and magnificent view. Pay a visit to the Barrau Art Museum next to the church, or the Ethnological Museum which is another option.
Santa Eulalia town has it all! It has a good reputation when it comes to wine and dine. A variety of fantastic restaurants and bars are eager to pamper you and make your stay just perfect! If you are not ready to go home yet, why not have a drink at the new marina where you will find more bars and music to enjoy yourself well into the night.
Visit the two long beaches, named Playa de Santa Eulalia and Playa des Riu and the harbor to enjoy the marina life and to let the sun fullfil all your needs and give you a perfect spot to see the breathtaking sunrise…When you walk on the palm-lined promenade to the marina, you see the only river on the island where Santa Eularia des Riu got its name from. The original bridge you find here was built by the Romans.
Shopaholics can eat their heart out as there are so many shopping options, from common boutiques to the very exclusive. Art Galleries, jewelry shops and even an Apple-store are open all year round. There are supermarkets, shops for special needs such as biological products or foreign food and nice bakeries with freshly baked bread. Craft markets and street vendors bring even more joy in the tourist season. The cozy Rambla de Santa Eulalia with shaded benches is perfect for some rest and for finding some relaxation after all your shopping.
Ferries go from Santa Eulalia to any nearby beaches and the island of Formentera, as well as to Ibiza Town so an evening out may start by boat! Taking a bus or a taxi is another option. Parking a car might be a problem in Santa Eulalia in the high season. If you like to see more of the area, the little road tram takes you on a two-hour guided tour…enhancing all the fun!
Santa Eulalia, where tradition meets the modern world and where it’s fun throughout the whole year!
