Jesús undeniably offers a trendy and very cosmopolitan lifestyle in a convenient and refined island location. Although it belongs to the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu in the southeast of the island, the village itself is close to the main town of Eivissa and is easily accessible to the airport, the popular beach of Talamanca and the many attractive tourist hotspots such as Marina Botafoch, Destino and Pacha. In fact, luxury tourism is very popular in Jesús due to its good location, chic village and sophisticated lifestyle. The properties available to buy and rent tend to be exclusive, modern contemporary villas located in the surrounding countryside or in private urbanisations, which naturally offers its residents and visitors plenty of upscale living.
Jesús (Ibiza): The Village
The village of Jesús is arranged around its beautiful whitewashed church, believed to house the most important artistic heritage of all the churches of the Pitiusas, and has been a popular spot for locals and long-term residents for many years, making it full of life, international diversity and atmosphere.
It is a relatively small village, like most other main villages on the island, consisting of detached authentic whitewashed houses, and a number of fantastic bars and restaurants with a wide range of culinary offerings, from new modern cuisine to local traditional bars. Opposite the church, one of Ibiza’s oldest restaurants, Bon Lloc is bustling with life and entertainment where many locals flock to socialise and dine over their traditional tapas on offer.
Looking beyond bars and restaurants, Jesús offers many small independent shops, delicatessens and fashion boutiques, as well as a central children’s playground and all the amenities needed for everyday living.
On September 8, the village of Jesús celebrates in style the annual festival of the local patron saint. The fiesta of the village patron saint Our Lady of Jesús (Mare de Deus de Jesús) begins with a traditional Mass held in the church (Nostra Mare de Jesús), followed by a parade with fan fares and drums resounding through the streets whilst offering fresh fruit to Our Lady Jesus. The celebrations continue with a street party filled with magnificent fireworks that can be seen from afar and celebrations over plenty of food and drink that naturally continue well into the night throughout all the local bars and restaurants.
Jesús (Ibiza): The Beaches
Jesús location near Ibiza Town allows easy access to many of the south’s A-list beaches, including Playa d’en Bossa, Es Cavellet and Ses Salines. However, when referring directly to the closest beaches to Jesús, Talamanca, is the most frequented beach, characterised by its international and predominantly adult character. With its long curves, soft sands, clear waters and wooden promenade that runs the length of the bay, you will find an excellent selection of bars and restaurants, including beach bars, beach clubs, Mediterranean restaurants and the most exclusive hotel restaurants on offer.
S’Estanyol beach is a small cove, hidden a little off the beaten track, making it perfect to escape the crowds during high season. The entrance to the sea is rocky, but if you walk via the small wooden jetty, there is a small strip of sand where the seabed becomes smooth and the water is crystal clear. Here the beautiful beach restaurant Cala Bonita has a lovely natural eco-chic decor with wooden tables reminiscent of the surrounding rustic fishing huts of the cove. The food is of quality traditional cuisine using fresh local ingredients. The restaurant also offers rented umbrellas, sun loungers and comfortable mattresses, perfect for long beach days with comfort and luxury.
