Chiringuito de Joan Ferrer, Cala Mastella, Santa Eulalia del Rio, no telephone. Funky, but with terrific food--simple fresh fish, fish soup, rice dishes and the like, cooked by a retired and inevitably colorful fisherman.
Sightseeing Ibiza: The place to go for sheer hedonistic pleasure, a place to laze by the sea and eat simply. The smallest of the B|alearics. It is the Mediterranean's most famous party island! Here you will find huge, frenetic discos, vast nude beaches, nonstop beer gardens. It is also filled with quiet little corners of great rural beauty, which anyone with a rental car can easily discover. The 16th century walls that enclose the so-called Dalt Vila, or Upper Town, of the town of Ibiza, are considered to be a rare and fine example of military architecture from that period. Within them are a huge Gothic cathedral and a small but fascinating archeological museum. The Avenida ANdenes, which runs along the port and the adjacent Marina district is the lively social center of town, full of cafes and bars.
