In the pretty village of Sant Joan de Labritja, located in the north of Ibiza, peace and tranquility are king. A village of white houses, a few establishments and an 18th century church with a peculiar belfry.
The north of the island is known for being one of the quietest areas in Ibiza, the place where you can still find the ‘real Ibiza’, the one that still maintains its customs, offers pine green landscapes dotted with traditional white houses and with the less crowded beach coves of the coast. Knowing that there are still places like this, it is well worth visiting and enjoying a different experience to what one would expected from Ibiza. A day to take life easy, sip by sip.
We will explore the northern part of the island through the main towns and villages of the municipality of Sant Joan de Labritja, the least populated area of the island with barely 5,600 inhabitants. Peace and tranquility are more than guaranteed here, with tiny villages hidden between the countryside and the forest away from the bustle of mainstream tourism. For those seeking a peaceful atmosphere will definitely adore this municipality. A great place to discover the tradition of the island, which is still promoted in municipalities like this one.
Fall is coming and many people think that the island of Ibiza is less interesting these months. Nothing is further from the truth. There are countless activities you can do in Ibiza this time of the year, which usually still has very good weather.
Dream beach coves, turquoise waters, pristine landscapes and mountains covered with pine and juniper trees. All this and much more is what you’ll find in the north of Ibiza, the least exploited area of the island, where you can enjoy less crowded beaches, typical whitewashed-style villages and the authentic essence of Ibiza.
On the way to Sant Miquel de Balansat you’ll find many interesting restaurants where you can enjoy all types of cuisine, from typical Ibizan food to more varied and international dishes. Now let’s show you some of the best ones.
The hot days are gone, cold months are coming up and with them one of the most authentic traditions that still takes place in the traditional Ibicenco homes and farms, “ses matances” (the pig slaughter). Many families, especially those who live in the villages, still keep doing “ses matances” almost in the same way they were done centuries ago.
November has arrived to our lovely island. And for those who love the traditions and want to know the most authentic side of Ibiza, we have two important dates. The Festivities of Sant Carles de Peralta, 4th of November and the big day of Santa Gertrudis, on the 16th of November.
