Sant Josep or as it is perhaps most commonly known, San José, is a charming village towards the west side of the island of Ibiza. It is known for its perfect combination of great bars and restaurants to match its more peaceful and secluded regions. It is also instantly recognisable on photographs due to the village’s vast amount of white-painted houses as well as its stunning backdrop against Sa Talaia, the highest mountain on the island.

Sant Josep is definitely at its most busy in the summer period - from Spring until Autumn. Temperatures reach the lower 30s on most days throughout these months. During the peak season, tourism is at its busiest and it is when there are the most live events in and around the bars. Prices are a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring while temperatures still tend to remain in the 20s. It is a great idea to visit during this period if you put more of an emphasis on relaxation time on your holidays.
Life in Sant Josep happens at a much steadier pace than in most other resorts on the island. It is still steeped in tradition with church bells chiming in the early morning and the cafes being busy most of the day with people kicking back and reading their newspapers. If you are seeking a bit of excitement in the area though, be sure to head down to the main street in the village which is lined with an excellent selection of bars and restaurants, many of which are open until the early hours.
In terms of accommodation, this is certainly one of the best spots on the island to find the ideal private villa to stay in.

What’s more, the resort of San Josep is just a short journey from other big resorts like San Antonio and Ibiza Town meaning you are never too far away from all of the action.
