san juan,ibizaSan Juan is the capital village of the municipality of the same name, which covers the entire northern slice of Ibiza, San Juan is a sleepy little village with a pace of life to die for?

It lies at the head of a beautiful wooded valley surrounded by a mountain range that mirrors that of its opposite southern sister municipality of San Jose.

Possibly the most chilled out village on the island, it is best summarized by the visit of the local fish van on Friday mornings. Upon arrival the driver leaps out of his van slowly, throws open the back door, reaches for his conch and blows it like a horn. This accomplished he relaxes and waits while the villagers slowly wend their way to the van to inspect his wares. The fish are fresh even in the height of summer.
