A place with 22 beautiful beaches with turquoise waters, 200km of hiking trails, hippy markets, and a delicious cuisine. In Santa Eulalia you will find the other side of Ibiza, and to enjoy the most of your visit, here is the list of the places you should not miss
An imperative that you cannot miss are the hippy markets of Santa Eulalia. The market of Les Dalies and Punta Arabi is a sight worth seeing at least once. Walking along its narrow alleys full of hippy stalls, feel the energy and the good atmosphere of the place, enjoy a live concert or eat delicious dishes in one of the many restaurants in the market. It is a unique experience you cannot miss. The markets are located a few kilometers from Santa Eulalia.
You cannot miss a visit to Mirador Puig de Missa. A hill adorned with white houses from which to enjoy one of the best views of Santa Eulalia. You can walk among its narrow cobbled streets full of history, visit the 16th century fortified church and the ethnographic museum. The climb is steep and it is recommended not to do it in the heat of the day but it’s worth doing to enjoy the spectacular views it offers.
Do not let the opportunity pass to visit the island of Formentera to enjoy one of the most beautiful and paradisiacal beaches you’ve ever seen. From Santa Eulalia, many ferries leave every day. Fine white sand, turquoise clear waters and a rich cuisine awaits us in the smallest of the Pitiusas.
We must not leave Santa Eulalia without walking its beautiful promenade. A wide boulevard stretching several kilometers along the city from the mouth of the river to the Marina. On one side are the beaches of Santa Eulalia del Rio, and at the other are great restaurants and bars with terraces and a great atmosphere.
Nature lovers will certainly enjoy the wonderful hiking trails on foot or bicycle to explore their environment. Santa Eulalia has many km of hiking trails that wind through mapped beaches and coves, forests and mountains of the Dels Munts area.
Es Canar is a small resort with a beautiful beach in a crescent shape and turquoise waters. You can walk on foot along the coast and access other coves, all of them feature amazing waters and rich marine funds to do snorkeling. You can spend a fantastic day at sunset beach and relax in one of the many chill out bars with nice music and a relaxing atmosphere.
You cannot miss a visit to this charming little sailor corner. Not the beach par excellence, but its crystalline waters, slipway houses, vegetation and rocks that protect it, give it a unique atmosphere. In addition, you will find the restaurant Cala Mastella, better known as the “el Bigotes” for its owner, where you can eat delicious seafood dishes in a privileged environment.
If you fancy a change and a little more culture go to Centro de interpretación de Río Molí de Dalt that is in an old “payesa” Ibizan house where there was a mill flour which has been restored and can be visited. The center was created to inform visitors on the field work and irrigation systems benefiting from the river of Santa Eulalia, these systems were introduced to the island by Muslims. The center can be visited and is open every day from 10 am to 1 pm.
If you fancy going to the naturalist world of Ibiza, then this is your place. On Playa Aigües Blanques you can practice nudism, but who doesn’t do it is respected too. It is a beautiful beach where you have to walk enough for waters to cover you, hence the name white water by the foam layer left by the waves on the shore, like a white blanket.
