With its luxurious seaside resorts and sublime white sand beaches, Ibiza could well be described as a ‘sanctuary for the soul’. Separated from the Spanish coast by the Mediterranean Sea, Ibiza is an idyllic isle that offers British holidaymakers excellent opportunities for rest and recreation.

Attracting thousands of house music fans and UK party-goers, Ibiza may appear as a youthful destination for drinking, clubbing and dancing, but there are more tranquil reasons to visit.

Planning An Escape

Ibiza becomes ‘party central’ in the months of June, July and August. Thus, the best chance for a quiet escape is before or after peak-season – in Spring (April/May) and Autumn (September/October).

National airlines such as British Airways and EasyJet offer direct flights that are convenient and timely. However, if in Spain, you can always choose to board a ferry from Valencia, Dénia or Barcelona, to travel to Ibiza Town or San Antoni de Portmany.

On arrival in Ibiza, there is the option of hiring a car from Alamo or other suitable rental car agency to reach the island’s most northern shores. Door-to-door transfers to and from Ibiza Airport can be arranged with Suntransfers.com, if necessary.

A Northern Paradise

Peace and serenity are synonymous with the northern region of Ibiza. Hilly, tree-covered and secluded, the coastal town of Cala Sant Vicent is the perfect location to get away from it all.

Located almost 40 km from Ibiza Airport and just 30 km from Ibiza Town, this remote yet stunning resort town is enclosed by the sapphire waters of a rocky cove, and emits a welcoming sense of calm.

Edged by high cliffs and green, wooded hillsides, the town is isolated and less tourist-driven than other parts of Ibiza. Lined with palm trees, restaurants and the large, multi-storeyed Grupotel hotel, Cala Sant Vicent is a holiday haven without the hurry.

An Attractive Town

Offering a wealth of natural attractions, the environment of Cala Sant Vicent can be experienced at your leisure. Take a walk up nearby slopes to the excavated Bronze Age caves where ancient people of the area once lived and worshipped ancient gods, in cool, darkened surroundings.

Or drape your towel across a deck chair in warm sunshine before walking across the golden sand for a long, refreshing swim in the sea. There is more than enough daylight to nap under a coloured parasol, go windsurfing or enjoy a game of tennis.

At Cala Sant Vicent, your holiday can be as relaxing as you want it to be. Free from passing traffic, the promenade features a collection of small bars and cafés from which to gaze across the bay. Beneath clear blue skies and alongside pristine turquoise water, you can sit, sigh and admire. This is relaxing as life can get!

Holiday On Ibiza

Wherever you travel on Ibiza, you can find your perfect place to rest and enjoy a week to yourself. With resort towns such as Cala San Vicent encompassing the serenest of surroundings, the luxury of some R & R is yours, at last. It all lays waiting on the distant shores of Northern Ibiza.
