Es Cubells

Tiny, picturesque and charming, Es Cubells village is the perfect Ibiza base. It’s a short drive to buzzing San José, yet it’s utterly peaceful, with just a couple of small restaurants, a stunning whitewashed church and a handful of chic villa rentals. And then there are those jaw-dropping views across the Mediterranean.

This is a place for lazy summer days, gentle countryside strolls and, of course, time at the beach. Amble down the hill and you’ll find a slice of coastal heaven – a crystal clear cove backed by pine-clad hills. But there are even more reasons to get packing and head to this countryside gem. 

Spend time here and you’ll be seduced by the family-friendly atmosphere, vibrant local community and lush green terrain. If a traditional Ibizan lifestyle is what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Es Cubells!

The coastline around Es Cubells is full of tiny shingle coves with clear waters that are just as good for snorkelling as they are for warm summer swims. This isn’t a place for beach clubs and all-night raves but if low-key beauty is your style, you’ll be in beachy heaven. 

A short walk down from your holiday rental, Es Cubells Beach is a pine-scented cove complete with an excellent restaurant underneath the trees. A couple of bays away, Es Xarcu Beach is a laid-back sweep of blue that’s more popular with locals than tourists. 

For a beach day with a side of adventure, don your walking shoes and tackle the cliffside path to Cala Llentrisica. It’s a two-hour slog and there are no amenities, but the desert-island seclusion is well worth the effort.

Yes, you could spend your holiday comatose on a sun lounger at your Es Cubells villa! But this is a beautiful part of Spain that’s begging to be explored; and one with a refreshingly authentic flavour. 

Start with a visit to one of the island’s most beautiful churches - the dazzling white Església Es Cubells - then head on down to the ocean. Whether you’re in search of an adrenaline-filled day in the waves or a chilled-out snooze on the sands, you’ll be well catered to here! 

If spending all day at the beach isn’t your thing, lace up those hiking boots and hoof it up the nearest hill, or meander through pine groves and along cliffside trails.

The shopping in Es Cubells won’t set your world alight, but there's a small grocery store to cover the basics for your holiday home. A short drive away you’ll find larger supermarkets with excellent fresh produce and enough choice to fill up your fridge to the max. 

For ceramic stores, souvenirs and a weekly craft market, head on down nearby San Jose. Chic homewares, boho-luxe fashion and handcrafted jewellery are always available in the ever-stylish Ibiza Town.

You won’t have to go far from your holiday rental to find delicious Spanish cuisine. There are two little restaurants in Es Cubells, where diners spill out onto sunny terraces overlooking the sea. Nearby Ses Boques is a stand-out pick, tucked under pine-trees in an intimate bay and filled with a lively international crowd. 

The only difficult decision is what to eat. No holiday would be complete without a long, lazy lunch of paella de mariscos. Other fishy highlights include whole bream roasted in salt and traditional Ibizan guisat de peix, a mixed fish stew that packs an impressive flavour. 

Not into seafood? Try a tapas board of cured pork or marinated veggies, or tuck into a plate of grilled Iberico pork chops. Buen provecho!

Right inside Es Cubells village is a playground, where the kids can wear themselves out while the grown-ups enjoy a drink at a terrace cafe. Follow the path down to the beach and you’ll find calm water that’s perfect for paddling and enough shade to protect young skin.

Fans of action-packed family holidays can get stuck into everything from water sports, to horse riding excursions to off-roading in a jeep. If you’d rather take things easy, no problem. Our family-friendly villas are fabulously well-equipped. Think fantastic kitchens, private swimming pools and gardens for the kids to blow off steam. You might never want to leave the premises!
