Talamanca (also known as Ibiza Bay) is a really popular location for renting a villa in Ibiza. Talamanca is situated to the east of, and close to, Ibiza Town. Talamanca is mainly an upmarket suburban area with a sandy beach as well as rocky headland that has a more relaxed vibe than the neighbouring capital city Ibiza Town. Talamanca is popular with families and couples - this is a resort that still has a traditional feel and where you won't really find any lively bars and where there are no clubs, but what you do have are some great restaurants where you can eat next to the beach and with the sound of the waves lapping gently on the shore. It's a great choice for couples and families
But when you are looking for a bit more life & soul and you want to find that livelier side of Ibiza then a 5 to 7 minute taxi ride will bring you to the many of the bars &restaurants (and Pacha nightclub) in Ibiza Town (Eivissa). Playa den Bossa is about a 15 minute taxi ride away, as are the beach clubs of Blue Marlin at Cala Jondal and Jockey Club at Ses Salinas. Alternatively you can take the aqua bus from Talamanca to Ibiza Town.
Talamanca is not an overly built up area with few high rise buildings in this area. Most of the villas located in the hills around Talamanca have amazing views across the bay to the medieval Dalt Vila - the old medieval town of Ibiza Town. Cap Martinet is a suburb of Talamanca and home to Destino Pacha Ibiza Resort - a five star hotel from the owners of Pacha which holds regular parties & events in the summer.
In your Ibiza villa you can relax during the day by the
pool...or head to the sandy beach where you can paddle board, and
take lunch on the beach or at one of the many excellent beach front
restaurants. After sunset head to the beach at Talamanca for tapas
or to Ibiza Town where you can
savour the unique atmosphere of the many places to eat and drink
that are located within the labyrinth of the castle walls, or in
the bar lined harbour area, open until the early hours. From Ibiza Town marina you can hire
a speedboat and head over to Formentera for an amazing lazy
Also close to Talamanca, but a little further inland is Jesus which is also in a great location for getting to Ibiza Town easily... try to find time to head to the small beach at S'Estanyol which is the next small bay around from Talamanca.
Talamanca is a great choice for an Ibiza villa holiday with family & friends as the resort that has plenty going on with great restaurants and a sophisticated and upmarket feel. This is reflected in the price of the villas that are generally more expensive here than in other parts of the island due to the prime location.
