The best restaurants, the beach and some nice activities.
Santa Eulalia (Santa Eulària in Catalan) is the third largest town of Ibiza, very popular with island residents and loved by many tourists for its central location, beautifull seafront promenade and all year round amenities.
Here you can find our overview and personal tips to enjoy your Santa Eulalia holiday.
1. Santa Eulalia Beach
Beautiful wide beach and promenade.
There are two beautiful beaches in Santa Eulalia
Platja de Santa Eulalia
This is the main beach along the promenade. It is a wide beach (20 to 90 meter wide and 400 meter long) with shallow water. A part of the beach is even non-smoking. Yep, no cigarette butts in the sand here and therefore a great place to let your little ones play. A lifeguard also keeps an eye on things. Along the promenade you have a lot of nice places to eat and drink.
Es Calo de s’Alga
This beach in Siesta is less known. It’s a footstep away from the Santa Eulalia promenade and located in the backyard of our 2-person apartment Casa Zita Playa. Lay on one of the sunbeds (first come, first served), enjoy the sea view or have a drink / snack at the small Chiringuito.
2. Discover Santa Eulalia by foot
A pretty, peaceful river-walk meanders up to Puig de Missa viewpoint.
Along this walk you discover the Santa Eulalia river. Follow the path marked out by the River Route, a simple walkway about three kilometers long. It will guide you through Puig de Missa, the Ethnographic Museum of Ibiza, Pont Vell (the old bridge), Pont Nou (the new bridge) and the River Interpretation Centre Can Planetes, where you can visit a restored flour mill.
You will also discover, if you follow the informative panels, one of Ibiza’s most peculiar mythological characters: the fameliar. Small and bald with a big head, this elf could be a great help to farmers by accomplishing a lot of work in a short period of time, but he could also be their ruin by eating them out of house and home. A whole legend revolves around this character.
The best place to enjoy the panorama of Santa Eulalia del Rio is the viewpoint of Puig de Missa. One of the oldest fortified churches of the island, surrounded by white Ibizan houses creating a unique landscape.
If you want help from Google to find your way, you can find Puig de Missa under the name of “Parròquia de Santa Eulàlia”, because the place Puig de Missa is not clearly indicated (not the right place on Google maps).

A walk along the different coast lines
To the North
Passing through the marina and following the coast line you can follow a nice walk up to Babylon Beach where you can have a delicious drink and/or some tasty food. For the ones who still have enough energy you can go further and discover more nice places & beaches: A walk along some idyllic beaches in the North-East. We can highly recommend to do so 🙂
To the South
If you walk to the other side (south direction from our apartment Casa Zita Playa) you go to Cala Blanca beach. This walk goes through a secret tunnel and is really worth a visit: The route from Santa Eulalia walk tot Cala Blanca
