Santa Eulalia del Río (or Riu) is one of three main cities in the Spanish isle of Ibiza. Located on the eastern seashore of the island, it is the ideal destination for tourists wanting a little more ‘serene’ Ibiza experience. Away from all the rowdy bars and nightclubs (but still brimming with entertaining venues), Eulalia is perfect for family holidays and Holiday Velvet offers fantastic Luxury Ibiza villas here.While beaches abound around Eulalia, we’ve taken the trouble to scour every nook and cranny of this glorious eastern seaboard, and offer you a list of the three very best beaches to be found here. Book a holiday villa in Ibiza today, and come see for yourself why Ibiza has become an international hub for thousands of tourists each year.Santa Eulalia BeachThe town’s main beach is the most popular in the area, as it is within easy walking distance to all the major shops, restaurants and holiday apartments. Half-moon shaped, and complete with sparkling white sand and crystal clear waters, it is a great beach for families with small children and even offers a ramp for disabled access. Often regarded as one of the cleanest beaches on the whole island, Santa Eulalia Beach offers some phenomenal snorkelling. You can hire sundeck chairs, umbrellas and towels right on the beach, making this a delightfully hassle-free option.Cala Blanca, IbizaShould you happen to be looking for a slightly more secluded beach experience…then we may just have the perfect gem for you. Cala Blanca is, quite possibly, the most hard-to-reach beach in Ibiza but we do guarantee that your efforts will be duly rewarded! First of all, we recommend you pile on the sunscreen, wear a wide brimmed hat and make sure you’re wearing some hardy sandals. Next, head to a place called Val Verde, (which you’ll find just behind Cala Llonga) just a few kms south of Eulalia, and ask a local to direct you towards ‘Calle de las lavandas’. You can get here by taxi or hire car.At the top of the road you’ll see a roundabout and a dirt track right next to it..you can’t miss it! Start walking on the track until you come to the first fork on the road; stick to the left. Continue to follow the track all the way down the coast, and remember it will get rockier the further down you go. Your first view of Cala Blanca beach below will be a great incentive to continue walking. This would have to be one of the best corners on the whole island!Enjoy a day out in Cala Blanca, but remember that there are NO facilities here, so bring all the food and drinks you’ll need for the day. Swimsuit optional!Cala Olivera Beach, IbizaCala Olivera Beach is another of Ibiza’s hidden treasures. Well, it’s not so much hidden, as just secluded, meaning it isn’t teaming with hundreds of beach goers. As with Cala Blanca, this beach is also not catered for, so you’ll need to bring your supplies with you. On a good note, it is easier to reach than Cala Blanca, so finding a little quiet corner of heaven has just been made easier!Head south from Eulalia towards Cala Llonga and just follow the road signs to Roca Llisa. Once here, you’ll see signs directing you towards Cala Olivera; the road ends at the car park just above the beach, so you’ll have to walk down the rocky face to reach the beach access. The water here is a perfect shade of turquoise, the sand glistening and Mother Nature even offers some natural shade in the form of overhanging rocks! You really couldn’t ask for anything more could you? The beach is perfect for snorkeling and is swarming with copious amounts of colored sea lifeIn case you haven’t noticed it yet, nudity is perfectly acceptable in this neck of the woods, so feel free to do as you please and have yourself a fantastic Ibiza holiday!
