Santa Eulalia Beach

Activities: Pedaloes, sailing, banana boat, waterski, diving school
Size: 300 metres long, 20 metres wide
Getting there: In the centre of the resort so easily found. Buses to Santa Eulalia from Ibiza Town, San José and Es Caná, also ferries from Ibiza Town and Es Caná. Parking is in the town if driving there (easily signposted).
Below the splendid promenade, the Town Hall of Santa Eulalia has created an extremely good long, wide beach of fine, white sand drawn from the sea. The waters are clean and shallow, safe for children and very inviting for less confident swimmers. There are excellent water-sport facilities and day boat trips available from the nearby marina. Between the white sand, busy and well facilitated promenade and sparkling clean waters, Santa Eulalia beach has the ultimate holiday getaway atmosphere.
Tip: Treat yourself to a lavish lunch in the marina on the left end of the bay where you'll find some excellent restaurants. On the right end you can stroll up the river and feed the ducks.
Beach bars and restaurants:
There's a lot to choose from near Santa Eulalia beach, with the resort holding a strong reputation as one of the cultural and gastronomic centres of Ibiza.
