Sant Joan or ‘San Juan’ as it is sometimes known, is a relatively secluded village to the north of the island of Ibiza. It has a very laid back and tranquil sort of atmosphere, a far-cry from some of the nightlife that Ibiza is traditionally known for. It is visited by travellers from all over the world and is known for its quiet streets, traditional architecture and its immersion with the surrounding natural areas.
You can find many low-cost holidays to Ibiza these days that can be accessed from most regional airports in the UK. Sant Joan is quite accessible from the airport on the island and a coach transfer tends to be the most popular method of reaching it. Make sure you check the Cheekytrip comparison site to see the timetable to the island from your local airport. Flight duration to Ibiza is just less than 3 hours. Add on a short transfer time and your dream holiday to Sant Joan will be kickstarted in no time!
Sant Joan is at its busiest from Spring until Autumn and even then it doesn’t get as busy as many other parts of the island. Temperatures often reach the lower 30s throughout these months. During the peak season, tourists will find the most things to do including the famous Fiesta de San Juan which happens in June. Prices are a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring and temperatures usually remain in the 20s. While there will still be a great selection of things to do, the off-season definitely doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer.
If you are travelling to Sant Joan, you are committing to trying out a new way of life that we aren’t really accustomed to in the UK. A place that values its traditions and where one day moves very leisurely into the next. There is a traditional market in the centre each Sunday where things like organic bread, fruit, candles, jewellery and much more can be bought. Another great thing to try here is the aforementioned Fiesta de San Juan. To truly get involved, all you need to do is write down a list of all of the bad things that have happened to you in the past year and then burn the list in one of the bonfires around the town - it can be very liberating!
The accommodation in this area of Ibiza is also very unique. This rural area of the island is home to the highest number of agrotourism hotels in the region. These hotels take a more focused look on sustainability and aim to replicate the days where the people of the island lived off the land. If ecotourism or anything ‘green’ is your thing, this is definitely the place to come! The best dining options can be found in the town centre and on the nearby beach of Cala San Vicente.
