Life in Santa Eulalia Villages: San Carlos, Santa Gertrudis & Jesús, Ibiza
For a little less hustle and bustle, Santa Eulalia also has three charming villages to choose from, each with its very own unique stamp and character. San Carlos, the closest to Santa Eulalia’s main town is known for its cultural heritage and community spirit. Once an important meeting place and residence for hippies during the 60s and 70s, this wonderful village is now a picturesque place offering a vibrant local community and iconic spots such as Bar Anita and the island’s biggest hippie market, Las Dalias. The village is surrounded by outstanding countryside, offering residents and visitors a more peaceful and authentic way of life.
Next, the picture-perfect and charming Santa Gertrudis is the second closest village to Santa Eulalia’s main town. This architecturally perfected village features a newly remodelled main square and a white and yellow central church which coordinates excellently with the houses and apartments that surround it. The village is home to a mix of modern cafes, pizzerias, fine dining restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries, as well as being incredibly convenient for those wishing to access both the public and private schools, including the renowned Morna International College.
Lastly, Jesús, a small yet extremely cosmopolitan village situated slightly farther afield, is known for its easy access to Ibiza Town as well as its proximity to summer hotspots like Destino, Marina Botafoch, and Pacha. All year long, Jesús is filled with life and atmosphere especially on the weekends due to its popularity with local residents, booming coffee culture and weekly artisan farmers’ market. The area is also incredibly popular among tourists during the height of the season due to its renowned high-class gastronomic and nightlife opportunities including Sa Punta, Patchwork, Ginger, and Chambao at the luxurious Nobu Ibiza Bay Hotel
Buying a Property in Santa Eulalia Villages
Homes for sale in San Carlos, Santa Gertrudis and Jesús offer a wide range of styles and locations. In Jesús, there are several exclusive cliff-top properties. These properties can often be found within three of five private communities of Santa Eularia des Riu, which include Cap Martinet, Can Rimbau and Can Pep Simo. However, due to the location and high-end tourist appeal, buying a property in Jesús comes with a very high price tag compared to the rest of the municipality.
On the other hand, the villages of San Carlos and Santa Gertrudis predominantly present different styles of property, which are commonly sought after by families looking for country lifestyle homes in idyllic settings including renovation projects or remodelled fincas, farmhouses, and modernised authentic villas.
Life in Santa Eulalia Beach Resorts, Ibiza
In addition to the 300m-long white sandy beach of Santa Eulalia Town, beautiful nearby beaches and charming resorts can also be found along the coastline, including Cala Pada, Playa Niu Blau, Cala Martina, Es Cana, Cala Nova, Cala Llenya, Cala Mastella, Cala Boix, Pou des Lleó, Es Figueral, Aguas Blancas in the north and Cala Llonga, Cala Olivera and Cala Bonita towards the South.
