In spite of its international reputation for being the epicentre of nocturnal leisure, the White Island also has a lesser-known side, but one of exceptional beauty; we bring you agrotourism on Ibiza.
If you wish to disconnect during your holidays, forget the busy partying scene and the non-stop atmosphere present in many areas of the island – you must start by deciding where to stay. The numerous, outstanding agrotourism accommodation options on Ibiza will have you spoilt for choice, as they all provide an experience of pure luxury for the senses. Atzaró, Can Arabí, Can Jaume, Ca Na Xica, Can Martí, Can Planells, Sa Talaia and Can Curreu are some of the best-known ones.
Another highly recommendable option to enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the countryside on Ibiza is to rent a house or a villa in the countryside. If there is one municipality that is known for its tranquillity, it is San Juan. It is located in the north of the island, and it is the town that has most set its sights on rural tourism. San Juan itself is a haven of peace, with its sleepy alleys and where almost all the neighbours know each other. It comes to life on Sundays on occasion of its popular arts and crafts market, which has live music and an authentic islander atmosphere. There are other villages that are also charming and peaceful, like San Miguel, San Mateo, Santa Gertrudis, San Agustín, San Carlos and Santa Inés all of which are well worth a visit.
