San Agustin, Ibiza, is a tiny hamlet in the interior of the island, completely unspoilt and almost untouched by the hands of time. Found on the road between San Jose and San Antonio, the village remains completely unknown to most visitors, tucked away out of sight, and if you would like absolute peace and quiet during your holiday, there is nowhere better than an apartment in San Agustin. Although it is not a melting pot of tourist attractions, there are few places better for relaxing in the sun, soaking in the undeniably charming atmosphere which envelops the village.
San Agustin is amazingly picturesque, and although there is nothing of global significance to visit within the village, it is a wonderful place to wander, taking in the scenery and enjoying the tranquillity. The large fronted whitewashed church is very beautiful, especially when the sun dips behind its façade in the evening, and there is a little bar which opens after 9 each evening, giving you a wonderful opportunity to get to know the locals. Aside from some of the vast, luxury villas which spring up in the surrounding olive groves, there is very little else to mention within the village!
However, a self catering San Agustin holiday rental is perfectly placed to get the most out of all that Ibiza has to offer. After a short wander through the almond grove lined countryside around San Agustin brings you to the beach of Cala Conte, a quiet and simply beautiful little sandy beach. The beaches in the area are particularly good for launching boats, and hiring a small sail boat or chartering a fishing boat is easy. There are some remarkable fishing waters just off the cost of Ibiza, with a whole host of fish species found in the area. When visiting the beach from a San Agustin holiday rental, don’t forget your snorkel! If you are looking for busier beaches, a San Agustin apartment is just a 10 minute drive from the best beaches of San Antonio.
The countryside which surrounds the village is perfect for walking and cycling. There are large expanses of untouched countryside in the area, and you can make it down to the coast in well under an hour.
San Jose is just a few tight corners around the road from a San Agustin villa or apartment. San Jose is also pretty wild, also untouched by the heady world of Ibiza’s clubbing scene. If you would like to hit the clubs one night, both Ibiza Town and San Antonio can be reached with a short drive from an apartment in San Agustin. Ibiza is not a huge island, and although San Agustin seems many miles from anywhere, you can reach any place on the island with ease.
The coldest temperatures you are likely to experience from a San Agustin apartment will still be very warm by British standards. During the winter months, temperatures still average over 15˚C, with daily temperatures reaching 20˚C with surprising regularity. In the summer months, when San Agustin villas are in their highest demand, temperatures average in the 30’s, with daily temperatures of over 40˚C common.
It only takes 20 minutes to reach a self catering holiday letting in San Agustin from Ibiza Airport (IBZ). The roads are winding and slow, and there are plenty of taxis waiting at the airport to whisk you away to your rental accommodation. There are also car hire firms available, if you think you are going to be doing a full exploration of the island during your stay. ThomsonFly provide a remarkable number of services from the UK to Ibiza, but there are many other airlines providing flights too.
