Visit Santa Eularia
Explore Santa Eularia
Santa Eularia d'es Riu is situated on the only river on Ibiza and indeed the only river in the Balearic Islands! If you want to holiday on Ibiza but do not want the wild nightlife of Ibiza Town or Sant Antonio then head for Santa Eularia. It is still the third biggest resort on the island and so has plenty of facilities and is particularly suited to families.
Santa Eularia has a long sandy beach, excellent shopping, lots of restaurants ranging from the good value to the gastronomic and a very nice yacht marina if you are into sailing.
The Calle San Vincente, one of the main streets in the town, is closed to traffic on an evening and the many restaurants that line the street put out their tables and there is almost a party atmosphere as you sit down to dinner.
During the day Calle San Jaime is popular and it is here you will find lots of coffee bars, cafes and restaurants. Great for relaxing in the sun and a spot of people watching.
The town has kept something of its original flavour, particularly nice is its hilltop church dating back to the 16th century. Surrounding the church is Santa Eularia's old town and also a small ethnological museum which is housed in an old farmhouse.
Take a stroll along the seafront promenade which has seen some heavy investment in recent times and boasts palm trees, minature gardens and a large fountain.
Another pleasant walk is to follow the path from Mariner beach next to the river and up to the restored Roman bridge.
Santa Eulalia has a large Marina and this area is also a popular area for restaurants and bars.
At the top of a hill, the Puig de Missa, is the 16th century church of our Lady of Jesus. This was once a mosque. From here you can get excellent views over the town and the sea. On a night the church is floodlit and looks very pretty above the town.
Santa Eulalia, unlike much of Ibiza, remains quite a vibrant town even in the winter.
