#iwozere last week and it was bloody brilliant!
Santa Eulalia is a beautiful town on the East coast of the Balearic Island, Ibiza. It is definitely for the more quieter travellers, suitable for families and couples alike. It was around 40 minutes from Ibiza airport to our hotel and located 5 minutes walk from the Marina and beach.
Top Tip – When going for a walk on an evening, go both left and right along the marina. Up to the left, is a view-point that over looks the sea and marina. Absolutely stunning views as far as the eye can see, on a gorgeous little cliff viewing point.
Our hotel was lovely. Really clean, lovely staff and good location for travelling. The hotel is an adults only hotel, but after further research (after booking) had found that it was for older adults. We were in a minority there for sure. It was peaceful though and wasn’t too busy. Although, I will be honest, I wasn’t keen on the ‘queuing’ for the pool on a morning. Reserving beds is a pet peeve for me and this happened daily. There were always enough beds for everyone though, so note that 🙂 Our twin room had a balcony and overlooked the pool. The room was really clean and they made it up every day, which I liked.
We had buffet breakfast and buffet dinner. Breakfast was plentiful and the omelette’s are great! They even have bottles of cava out every morning. We didn’t have a cheeky drink until the last day though. We were well-behaved!
Dinner, I would say, is pretty average. We ate out a few times.
*Traveller trick* we made up baguettes at breakfast to take with us for our lunch. But shhhhh 😉
Top Tip – You must visit Sa Finca Restaurant. It has views that are perfect to watch the sunset over the mountains during dinner. The food is simply divine.
There are plenty of bars along the marina and one or two up by the fountains and town hall. The prices are reasonable, paying around 3-5 euros for a pint of Estrella/Mahou. The food is more expensive on the marina front, compared to further along to the right or up on Retaurant Street, a few streets back from the beach. There are lots of cocktail offers on around too and Mirage and the ‘british bars’ open for extended hours for those who want to party a little longer. The hotel itself also had a gin club/bar. They had entertainment each evening, except Mondays. Chill day!
Our final day was spent by taking a ferry over to Formentera, the smallest of the Balearic Islands. The ferry took around an hour and we took a bus to Playa Illetes, arguably the most popular of the many this small island holds. There are a couple that are closer to the port, but definitely not as beautiful. Sunbeds & parasols are 10 euros each. We took our own. Great day for a chillax and honestly, the sea was lovely. Personally, I’m scared of the sea, due to my irrational fear of sharks, but I did go in to cool down and I actually enjoyed it 🙂
Genuine little gem of a town, perfect relax. Let me know if you have been. What did you think? Any other tips for other readers?
