San Juan in the North East of the island is the smallest municipality in Ibiza, in terms of both size and population. The sleepy village of of the same name is a favorite of the Haven on Earth team and we can offer a wide range of villas in and around this location. Sant Juan lies in the middle of the Es Amunts hills and has remained unspoilt by tourism. It is a favorite with wealthy families who want to be within easy reach of the idyllic beaches of the North.

The small town of San Juan is low keys. There are a few cafes, a grocery shop and pharmacy. The Giri Cafe is definitely worth a visit. Take a seat in the organic garden/restaurant space, surrounded by flowers and fresh herbs. Little has changed here in the last 30 years. It's a slice of authentic Ibiza, free of high-rise buildings, nightclubs and frenzied partygoers.
You can easily spend a few restful hours in the heart of the village, sitting out on the terrace of one of the few bars, we recommend Vista Alegre for a real taste of San Juan. You will be greeted by long-serving waiter Thomas. There is nothing that Thomas doesn't know about San Juan so if you have any questions this is the man to ask. If San Juan gets a little too sleepy for you, there is more tourist activity in the nearby beach resorts of Port de Sant Miguel, Portinatx, and Cala Sant Vicente. All of these destinations have an array of bars and restaurants to try aswell as beautiful beaches.
The nearby Puerto de San Miguel was once the fishing port of San Miguel village, nowadays it is a popular resort with families and couples seeking beautiful beaches and relaxation. The Port de San Miguel is one of the most sheltered beaches on the island, nestled in a cove and surrounded by lush pine-covered cliffs. There is a nice breeze here which makes it pleasant for sunbathing. This beach is popular for water sports, including waterskiing, windsurfing and there is a diving school. Sunbeds and parasols are available to rent. There are a few shops and a supermarket,several bars and restaurants along the front-line of the the beach, including the Port Balansat - regarded as one of the best fish restaurants on the island.
Portinatx is another popular resort in the North of the island. Portinatx is not overcrowded and retains much of its Ibizan charm despite being popular with Nordic and English tourists. There is a great supermarket here, beach shop, a few bars, restaurants and an internet cafe. Why not spend the morning on the beautiful beach with its fine white sand and shallow calm waters; then head up to the promenade for lunch at one of the several restaurants overlooking the bay?
If you are looking to escape to pure paradise then head to the north-western beach of Cala Xuclar. No matter where you are staying on the island, a visit to this little arc shaped bay is a must. Surrounded by pine trees and weathered fishing huts, Cala Xuclar is the perfect place to get away from it all and spend an afternoon on the sand, with a book and only the sound of the sea to disturb you. This little gem is a great place to head to after having lunch in the near-by town of Portinax. Always a great escape as it never gets overcrowded and is mostly visited by Ibizans and clued-up expats.
