San Rafael is one of the places on the island of Ibiza that manages to combine the best of both the exciting reputation of bars and restaurants along with the peace that can comes from a secluded spot on the island. Sat right in between the two party towns of Ibiza Town and San Antonio, San Rafael is the perfect destination for anyone who enjoys a bit of balance. Similar to the rest of the island, San Rafael is known for its wonderful beaches but what makes this place unique is that it is the only ‘artisan zone’ in Ibiza due to its wide variety of pottery workshops.

The most popular period in San Rafael is the Spring to Autumn period with temperatures often reaching the low 30s throughout these months. Not only is the area at its vibrant best during these months, but prices are still very reasonably priced. While there will still be a great selection of things to do in the off-season, San Rafael definitely doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer. The temperatures are often a bit cooler in the autumn/winter months too making it an ideal time to explore San Rafael a bit more.
Some great things to do and see in San Rafael include a visit to the old castle and harbour which is home to cruise ships and some big ferries. As mentioned earlier, this part of the island specialises in pottery and the likes of beautiful ceramics can be found and bought at the famous Icardi Ceramic workshop. The pottery and ceramics here are designed using the same method as when the art was first introduced to the island by Mediterranean occupiers a couple of thousand years ago.
The accommodation options in the region are fantastic, with a wide range of budget hotels, all inclusive hotels and self-catered apartments to choose from. One of the standout features of this area of the island is its cuisine. Es Tanco Pizzeria is one of the most highly-rated, with many regarding it as serving the best pizza on the island!
