The idyllic village of San Juan is the perfect place to step back in time and get a taste of what made Ibiza so alluring in the first place.
Here you’ll find nature in her most vivid beauty, with gently undulating green hills, orange and lemon groves, almond blossoms, and rich red earth. Five minutes’ drive away, you’ll reach the coast, defined by dramatic cliff tops and if you wind your way down, a few of Ibiza’s most pristine and secret beaches. Apart from the simple and rustic beauty of the town, the great appeal of San Juan is that it leaves the Ibiza of mega yachts and super clubs behind and lets you sidestep the throngs of tourists. Here you’ll find generous spirited locals doing their thing, as they have for centuries, welcoming the weary with una copa de vino and a bowl of olives. The overall sense is a supreme feeling of wellbeing and connectedness and yet the wider joys of Ibiza are just 20 minutes away if the spirit of adventure calls.
