Make a holiday villa in San Lorenzo your home away from home
San Lorenzo holiday villas are towards the northeast of Ibiza, in a calm, rural part of the island. It’s a good location if you’d like to fit plenty of outdoor activities into your stay, with mountain biking and hiking trails passing through a remarkably unspoiled landscape. From a holiday home in San Lorenzo it won’t be hard to get to some of Ibiza’s top beaches, like the famous Benirras, known for its iconic rock. Here you can relax in the sun or take part in all kinds of watersports. Villas in San Lorenzo are designed to indulge their guests – practically all have a private pool and large garden to relax in.
Things to do
-Benirras Beach. Only ten minutes from the village of San Lorenzo, this sandy beach is 300 metres in length and sits next to tall pine-covered hills. The water is calm and sheltered, making it transparent and just right for swimming. In the middle of the bay here is Cap Bernat, a large rock that helps to protect the beach from tides.
-Other beaches. A fabulous choice of other beaches can be reached within a few minutes from San Lorenzo. These range from long sandy bays like Cala Vincent, served by cafes, shops and other amenities, to a host of hidden and unfrequented coves. Many of these smaller beaches can only be reached via walking trail, but they’re the best places to go if you fancy an afternoon to yourself.
-Ibiza town. The Dalt Vila in Ibiza Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s a citadel with many historic elements, including defensive walls and Renaissance gates. The town hall is one of many sights inside the citadel, and was once a medieval convent. Spectacular religious buildings here include the 14th Century cathedral and the Episcopal palace.
-Watersports. Ibiza has more than 200 kilometres of coastline, and much of this is indented, creating rocky outcrops, coves, inlets and caves that are all waiting to be discovered. For an underwater adventure you could head for one of the seven dive centres found on Ibiza. For thrills above the surface, the top beaches like Playa d’en Bossa and Cala Martina have watersports centres offering jet-skiing, motorboating and much more.
-Land-based adventure. Since some of Ibiza’s most beautiful scenery is difficult to reach by road, mountain biking and hiking trails are a great way to experience the island. There are adventure-sports companies offering biking trips tackling rugged terrain, passing through fragrant Mediterranean forest and alongside unspoiled beaches. Horseback rides are also available, as are high-octane off-road trips.
