Easter in Ibiza (Santa Semana)

Holy week (Santa Semana) is celebrated in every town & city in Spain. In Ibiza Town Easter is remembered & celebrated with a series of processions that start, normally, on Palm Sunday and take place, usually on Maundy Thursday & Good Friday.

This is a somber occasion that marks probably the most important event in the Roman Catholic calendar. Regardless of religion, you are likely to find moving as the procession weaves its way slowly along the cobbled streets of Ibiza Town. The sound of trumpets and drums add to the atmosphere.

If you are in Ibiza Town over the Easter period then really try to make time to watch the procession that normally starts around 7pm and takes a couple of hours

Atlantis Ibiza - Ibiza's Hidden Beach

Atlantis - Found !
If you are looking for a lesser known area of Ibiza then head to “Atlantis” or more officially the area is Sa Pedrera & Raco des Llenyan, close to the area of Punta Roja which is between Cala D’Hort beach and then rock of Es Vedra.
Head towards Cala d’Hort (PM-803) and look for the signs to Torre de Savinar

You can either take the track that leads to Torre de Savinar, and enjoy spectacular views (after a scramble up the hill) to Es Vedra…or you head in the other direction down towards the sea at Atlantis…the walk is about an hour but in the summer it can take longer as you trek over the sands & rocks… take  plenty of water and our advice is to head out early before the sun is too hot, or go late to grab some spectacular sunset views.. but take a torch for the walk back to the mountain side !
