Santa Eulalia is Ibiza’s third largest resort, and an ideal destination for families and couples who want to enjoy a quiet, relaxing holiday without all the parties and revelry that the island is so famous for. If you’re looking for a beachside break, Santa Eulalia has spacious sands, which shelve gently into aquamarine waters, making it a superb spot for those holidaying with little ones. Behind it, there’s a long, palm-fringed promenade, which is ideal for wandering along and then watching one of Ibiza’s spectacular sunsets, while enjoying a relaxing drink.
The promenade and waterfront have helped Santa Eulalia earn its reputation as Ibiza’s gastronomic headquarters, too. If you enjoy eating good food in relaxed surroundings, you’ll find that this destination boasts some of the best restaurants in Ibiza! With family attractions, excellent shopping and, of course, the glorious, golden beach, Santa Eulalia holidays are the fastest way to slow down!
Things to do
While it would be all too easy to spend your Palma Nova holidays on one of the three stunning beaches, there are plenty of things to get up to once your tan is topped. The ‘Nit de Foc’ (Night of Fire) is held in late June and marks the night before the Feast of St John and features devils, demons, flaming torches, and fireworks. Plan a day trip to watch the sharks in Palma’s acclaimed aquarium, or visit nearby Katmandu Park for a day of water-based fun. In the evenings, grab dinner in the town centre and head to a bar, or walk along the seafront to enjoy the famous clubs of Magaluf.
When you holiday to Santa Eulalia, you’ll spend a lot of your time walking the promenade. Here you’ll find cafés that you can sit and enjoy a quick pit stop and shops that you can saunter round on your way to either of the beautiful beaches. Plus when you feel like resting for a moment, there’s a few shaded spots where you can get out of the heat for a bit and admire the views of the sea. Return here at the end of a long day on the beach and take an evening stroll or sit in one of the bars enjoying a drink as you watch the sunset.
Santa Eulalia has developed a reputation as being the gastronomic capital of Ibiza with its many different restaurants, whatever you fancy you’re bound to find it in Santa Eulalia. There are the cafés on the promenade and the fresh seafood restaurants by the marina, but Calle San Vicente is where all food lovers need to head. The famed street, nicknamed Restaurant Street, is 200 metres long and whether you’re looking for anything from traditional Spanish tapas or French fine dining to a pizzeria or sushi restaurant, the chances are you’ll probably find it down this street. There’s a real fiesta atmosphere in the evenings and you’re invited to join in.
History and culture
For a visit rich in history and culture, Santa Eulalia is a great place to experience. There’s the Puig de Missa church where you can admire the beautiful whitewashed building as well as the surrounding panoramic view from the top of the hill. If you fancy travelling about 15 minutes by car to Ibiza Town, you’ll be greeted by stunning old buildings from the moment you arrive. The old town is the place to visit for a trip back to the past.
