Ibiza’s cosmopolitan side
Arty, charming and famous for its food, Santa Eulalia is a real gem on Ibiza's north-east coast. For years the resort has been a magnet for artists, resulting in a lovely mix of galleries, traditional crafts markets and waterfront portrait artists. Along the waterfront is a yacht-filled marina, two golden beaches and a tree-lined promenade.
Calle San Vicente has earned the nickname Restaurant Street, and is the foodie heart of Ibiza. A few minutes inland from the beach, it's home to some of the top-rated dining spots on the island, where you can pick and choose anything from authentic Balearic eats to the likes of Indian, Italian and Moroccan cuisine. The palm-strewn Calle San Jaime is lined with quaint pavement cafés – soak up the atmosphere with a morning coffee or an early evening cocktail.
Flight time from the UK to Ibiza is around 2 hours 15 minutes.
Transfer time from Ibiza airport to Santa Eulalia is approximately 20 minutes.
Ibiza’s weather is classic Mediterranean, with warm, sunny summers and mild temperatures the rest of the year. May is when the holiday season kicks off in earnest, reaching the mid-20s and climbing towards 30°C for the hottest months of July and August.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
