5 things to do in Santa Eulalia, Ibiza

by Jules on November 28, 2012

Santa Eulalia is one of the more sedate and quiet resorts that the island of Ibiza has to offer. For those tourists who are seeking a relaxed and carefree break, the town is well placed for walks along the promenade and it offers much in the way of good quality accommodation to suit a range of needs and budgets too. There are also regular Ibiza flights from the UK from the popular budget airlines, making it cheap and easy to get to.

It’s somewhere that offers elegant refinement with an array of activities to suit the more creative sides of holidaymakers and tourists. Here are just a few of the best things to do if you choose to stay there.

Leisure activities

Art: If art is of particular interest, why not pay a visit to the Santa Eulalia Barro Museum. This man became one of the island’s most respected artists after he moved there at the age of 47 in 1910. The museum contains some 200 of his most revered works and when he died just three years short of his 100th birthday in 1954, he was interred at Santa Eulalia Cemetery.

Boating: As you would expect of a resort that boasts a beautiful promenade and well kept beach, Santa Eulalia also offers activities for those who like a slightly more exhilarating experience and may feel like chartering a boat. A number of companies operating in the area offer the holidaymaker the chance to experience views of the island by sea. There are different types of excursions depending on level of ability and even a chance to dabble in water sports if that’s a particular passion.

Relaxation, shopping and eating out

Shopping: Santa Eulalia offers a wealth of shopping opportunities to satisfy even the hardest to please bargain hunter. Whether shopping for designer sunglasses or holiday wear is required, right through to handmade jewellery and artisan crafted ornaments to remember a holiday by, this small town has it all. Shopping for local delicacies to sample is also a very good bet, especially if a self-catering holiday is being taken. There are many fine shops in Santa Eulalia that offer well-priced and seasonal local ingredients to cook with.

Craft Market: A leisurely stroll round the local craft market situated at San Jamie is a wonderful way to spend a few hours. You can browse round the beautiful artwork or perhaps have an instant portrait painted by one of the artists there before walking through the street and back through to the promenade again.

Fine dining: This is a place that offers a true experience of what it’s like to live and dine out in a Mediterranean town. During the day, the main street of Calle San Jamie is the place where everyone goes to meet for coffee or a light lunch. It’s a perfect spot to relax and watch everyday life being lived. In the evening, the street is closed off to traffic and it turns into a boulevard of delights with delicious local food cooked and served from the various eateries, with street entertainment and musicians to delight and charm.
