Santa Eulalia Beach
Location: Directly in the resort of Santa Eulalia
Facilities: Promenade, loungers, parasols, showers, restaurants, bars, shops, lifeguards, access for the disabled
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. The tree-lined main street is the classic Mediterranean scene with countless tables and chairs outside of the many tasty eateries. One of the oldest restaurants on the beat is the Royalty Restaurant, with a well priced menu and nice tapas. You could grab some ribs at Ca Na Ribes restaurant in a nearby courtyard, enjoy a curry at the famous Kathmandu indian restuarant or only slightly further afield there is the up-market Nikki Beach Club, with sweeping coastal views and quality food, drinks and entertainment.

A broad beach with fine, light-coloured sand at the mouth of the only river of Ibiza. The seabed is shallow and safe for children, the water usually quiet. Several beach restaurants line the promenade, which leads into the town centre only a 10 minute walk away.
At the river there is a picturesque tiny harbour, a meeting point for canoeists and sailors. A lovely path leads along the riverbank to a small bridge, over which the small neighbouring resort of Siesta is reached.
