The hillside of Can Fita is the location of the tourist area of Siesta, an extensive urbanisation surrounded by pine trees and located next to the sea that has the advantage of being just a stone’s throw from the town centre of Santa Eulalia del Rio, from which it is only separated by the mouth of the only river in Ibiza.

Tourist area of Siesta

You will love the tourist area of Siesta if you are looking for a quiet stay in a landscaped setting with access to the sea, since here you will find the beach of Es Caló de s’Alga, a small sandy area with calm waters, ideal both for children’s bathing and for a quiet day at the beach. The beach has a rocky corner that is very attractive for snorkelling, as well as panoramic views over the wooded cliffs of Cala Llonga.

What to see in Siesta

All the attractions of the town of Santa Eulària des Riu are just a stone’s throw away from Siesta thanks to its proximity. You can even dispense with the car and bus if you wish, as a pleasant walk connects the two towns via the bridge that crosses the mouth of the river and continues along the town’s promenade. A path that passes next to the bridge, the so-called River Route, allows you to discover the importance of this riverbed for the development of the village and to visit an old flour mill, nowadays converted into the Can Planetes River Visitor Centre.

Qué ver en Siesta

Can Planetes.

The church of Santa Eulalia, Es Puig de Missa, was one of the four fortress temples that were built on the island as protection against attacks by Turkish and North African pirates, along with those of Sant Miquel, Sant Jordi and Sant Antoni. It stands on a hill that can be seen from afar, with some houses at its lower level. Below the hill is the town’s river and next to it are the flour mills, the main objective during the invasions.
