Santa Eulalia Tourist Information Free Article (see Terms)
Santa Eulalia (or Sant Eularia des Riu) is the 3rd biggest town on Ibiza and is located on the east coast, about 10 miles (or 16km) north and east of the Island capital, Ibiza Town. It is ever popular with couples and family groups.

The Santa Eulalia beaches, both of which are gently sloping making them great for children. The main one is Platja Santa Eularia des Riu, about 1,000 feet long and is backed by a esplanade lined with apartments, hotels and many restaurants. Further east is the Port Espiritu marina where there are ferries to Ibiza Town during the peak season.

At the centre of Santa Eulalia is the Placa d Espanya, dominated by the early eighteenth century town hall and nearby is the pedestrianised Passeig de s Alamera, which has a lively market during the long summer evenings. Many of the best restaurants are found along the Carrer de Sant Vincent, including Sandys Bistro, famed for its Spanish and French fare. There are lots more good eateries by the Santa Eulalia Marina, with the Dona Margarita Puerto and the El Corsario Negro being top choices.

To the west of the town is the Puig de Missa, dominated by an ancient fortress like church dating from the early 16th century. Nearby is the Museum of Ethnology, which follows the local rural history with exhibits of musical instruments, old tools, fishing, wine equipment and items of apparel.

Punta Arabi is a wooded headland located about 3 miles north of the town where a large hippy market (which mostly has about 400 stalls), is held on Wednesdays. There is a massive range of things for sale, such as antiques, womens clothing and jewelry. Close to Punta Arabi is the small area of Es Canar, which has a nice Blue Flag beach. The more exposed beach in Cala Nova, just to the north of Es Canar, is famed for its wild waves, especially when the northerly winds are blowing. There are often pleasure boat trips the Santa Eulalia marina to many of the quiter beaches.

The quaint village Santa Carles, nearly 4 miles (or 7 km) north of Santa Eulalia, was a favourite destination with the hippies in the sixties. The favourite haunt during that era was Anitas Bar which is still going strong and the close by Las Dalias bar is also popular.

By Ibiza standards, the resort of Santa Eulalia is quite tame when it comes to the nightlife with only the Cafe Guarana by the marina, the closest thing to a dance club, but there are a few music bars along the front. If you are wanting something more lively, you should head for nearby Ibiza Town.

Santa Eulalia has a new bus terminal, the Cami de Missa, where there are bus services to Ibiza Town and San Antonio. The main tourism office is located on the calle Maria Riquer.
