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.

The beach has been entirely smoke-free, since 2015, in bid to keep the sands pristine for all who visit it. There are excellent watersports facilities and boat day 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.

Spotlight tip: Stay in the elegant Sol Beach House by the renowned Melia Hotel Group - a peaceful haven, especially popular with couples. The colourful design is done by Desigual, the famous Spanish fashion brand.

Mariner's Beach (Platja des Riu de Santa Eulalia)

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.

Beach bars and restaurants:

There's a lot to choose from near both beaches, with the resort holding a strong reputation as one of the cultural and gastronomic centres of Ibiza.

The tree-lined main street and the surrounding lanes are a classic Mediterranean scene with many tables and chairs outside of the multiple great eateries. One of the oldest restaurants on the beat is Royalty Restaurant, with a well priced menu and nice tapas. For a more romantic night out try Ca Na Ribes restaurant with its beautiful courtyard and terrace or El Naranjo with its lush garden terrace - both serve really tasty Mediterranean cuisine.

In the marina there is a great collection of light and airy restaurants and bars. Slightly further afield at S'Argamassa beach there is the upmarket Nikki Beach Club, with sweeping coastal views and quality food, drinks and entertainment.
