Rent a villa or apartment and enjoy a slice of Balearic heaven

Unwind in the secluded village of San Juan

The peaceful and secluded village of San Juan (known as "Sant Joan de Labritja" in Catalan), is the furthest from Ibiza Airport and the most rural region of the island. It is also the most northern town in Ibiza, taking approximately 30 minutes by car from the airport. Discover a natural landscape of isolated coves, pristine bays and some of Ibiza’s most tranquil beaches. Known as the last village in Ibiza, its calm nature makes it a favourite with families and those looking for some peace and quiet. Its untouched beauty allows you to explore a natural coastline of sand and rock, as well as a few hidden caverns, one of which has been converted into an amusement park. Water sports can be enjoyed in the neighbouring Port Sant Miquel, not to mention the surrounding bays and islets.

As a family-friendly resort, you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants scattered along the picturesque coastline. Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers should feel right at home here as Ibiza’s beautiful rural countryside is the perfect place for cycling and leisurely strolls. The island's history is rich and fascinating. You’ll discover that remnants from Ibiza's past are spread all over this quiet village. Step back in time by visiting relics such as the 18th century church in the village square. For a taste of the local culture there is an artisan market every Sunday where locals and tourists mingle to sample the selection of fresh organic produce and handcrafted goods.

Considering the size of the island, nothing is remote. With dependable public transport and a quality road infrastructure, nothing is out of reach. The island's mild climate turns this destination into a perfect holiday location all-year round. A number of splendid rental properties in Sant Joan can be booked via Clickstay. We offer a variety of holiday villas and apartments for rent to accommodate anyone.

A beginner's guide to a holiday home rental in San Juan

San Juan is the furthest region northwards and Ibiza's last village. While the buzz is happening on the eastern, western and, somewhat, southern part of the island, San Juan tends to stay quiet. It attracts mainly couples with children and holidaymakers looking for privacy. Even though the airport and San Juan are on opposite sides of Ibiza, it's a short car ride from the airport to the village. It takes some 30 minutes to reach San Juan via the E-10 road.

The E-10 road from Eivissa to San Juan is also called Restaurant Road, or Restaurant Mile. A charming stretch of restaurants along the 5-mile section of the road from Eivissa offers a wide choice of cuisine. Most of these dining spots are open throughout the year and serve dishes from local to Italian delicacies. Some even serve MediterrAsian foods, which is becoming increasingly popular.

San Juan is set amid the rolling countryside blending into the coastline. Rustic trails wind through the pinewood landscape that cover most of the region, where you'll find seven trekking routes. The routes are divided according to difficulty, with the easiest route just under 10km, and the more advanced stretching roughly 20km long. Every route provides a scenic journey with panoramic views of the coastline. If you get tired of walking, try horse riding at North Ride Ibiza.

Apart from the usual water sports, there are a couple of activities that San Juan offers, especially. Diving is very popular in the waters around northwestern Ibiza. There are four distinctive locations when it comes to diving: Murada island, Xarraca, Xernas and Sa Aigua Blanca. Another alternative water sport is kayaking. The coastline from Na Xamena to Cala Portinatx is divided into four kayaking routes, based on length and difficulty. The water here is brilliantly blue and clear, thanks to the Posidonia Oceanica plant in the waters around Ibiza.

Caves and caverns can be found around the more rocky coastline around Ibiza; the one that stands out is in San Juan. The Can Mark cave, or Cova de Can Marçà in Catalan, has been developed into an amusement park and is ideal for couples with small children.

The region has no shortage of festivals either. Firecrackers and bonfires light up the region, while fiesta de San Juan reveals interesting cultural customs for any visitor to take part in. Celebrated in June, it welcomes the coming of summer, with plenty of attraction for kids.
