Santa Eulalia Ibiza: A visitor's guide
Located on the east of the island of Ibiza, you can access Santa Eulalia easily by car (taxi or rented) or bus. From the airport, bus route 24 takes you straight to this quiet locality and you’ll immediately notice an air of tranquility, from the moment you step onto an uncrowded bus.
Ideal for anyone hoping to enjoy a relaxing beach vacation, the hotels in Santa Eulalia Ibiza are favourites among families and couples who want to escape the island’s famed nightlife. The town is quiet but the whole area surrounding Santa Eulalia hosts several fantastic hotels, many of which are right on the sea’s edge so you’ll be tempted to take a dip as soon as you arrive.
Furthermore, the quaint old town and the stunning scenery are some of the most beautiful in the region and are unspoiled, since there are fewer bars and only tasteful restaurants. In short, there aren’t any hardcore partygoers rocking up to this eastern part of the island looking to pull all-nighters and outlast the clubbing scene.
