The resort of Santa Eulalia, on the beautiful Balearic Island of Ibiza, offers everything you need for the perfect summer break. With beach fun by the bucket load, a wide range of hotels, shops, restaurants and bars and glorious Mediterranean vistas, this quieter, eastern slice of the island will put a spring in your step as soon as you arrive.
Ibiza is the undisputed clubbing capital of the world, and you'll doubtless share your flight to Ibiza Airport (IBZ) with party animals ready to dance the night away. Chilled out Santa Eulalia, however, feels a world away from the bars and super-clubs for which Ibiza Town and San Antonio are famous.
In fact, holidays in Santa Eulalia are more about relaxing on the beach, enjoying the local cuisine in one of the resort's excellent restaurants and perhaps rounding the day off with a few drinks in one of its swanky bars (oh yes, there is nightlife if you want it, just don't expect to see fellow holidaymakers crawling back to the hotel as the sun rises).
This family-friendly atmosphere makes Santa Eulalia holidays particularly popular with groups travelling with children - especially as there is a gorgeous, clean and safe beach at the heart of the resort. Many hotels offer clubs and activities for children as a result, while the resort's restaurants cater for fussy young eaters as well as diners with a taste for the finer things in life. The part-pedestrianised Calle San Vicente, or Street of Restaurants, is a great place to start your search for a tasty meal - whatever kind of cuisine you want to find.
Accommodation too is of a good standard, with a large number of multi-storey hotels and self-catering complexes in the resort. And while you probably won't feel the need to leave Santa Eulalia during your idyllic sunshine break, both a hire car and the convenient local transport system are good ways to explore some of Ibiza's cultural delights.
