Situated on the south-west of the island, Sant Josep de sa Talaia (or San José) is the largest municipality on Ibiza. Yet, the location offers a unique laid-back atmosphere, ideal to enjoy a relaxing and quiet holiday or a break to recover from various Ibiza attractions.

The municipality stretches considerably in the south to the Eivissa, Platja d’en Bossa, and northeast it borders by the municipality of Sant Antoni.

The coastline of the region is the most extended. It is the one that offers the greatest number of beaches throughout its 80 km of coastline. Namely, it hosts popular quality beach resorts and beautiful coves (cala in Spanish). These include Cala D’Hort, with views to the emblematic isle of Es Vedrá, Cala Vadella, perfect for families, Cala Molí, Cala Conta along with its new ecological urbanization and Cala Bassa. All of them boast amazing sunsets.

Also, here you find isolated fishermen bays preserving the traditional ambience, such as Porroig, es Xarco, sa Caleta, Cala Llentrisca, and Cala Corral.

The region offers quite interesting hiking routes to explore and enjoy the beauty of the unspoilt nature. Here you will see defensive towers in hidden enclosures, such as the tower of d’en Rovira, located in Platges de Comte, the Pirate Tower in Cala d’Hort, or the Carregador tower, near Ses Salines.

The properties in the area include restored Ibicenco farmhouses set among citrus orchards, almond groves, and pine-clothed hills, making it a truly tranquil base for your Ibiza holiday.

The municipality’s centre, the small town of the same name, is situated beneath the highest mountain on the island. The Sa Talaia mount (475 meters) boasts excellent scenery and the best panoramic views.

San José is known as the island’s richest town. It is also the one that strongly preserves its authenticity. The attractive whitewashed church situated on the town’s main square with the large facade is considered as the most interesting on Ibiza worth seeing.

This charming village offers a myriad of services, yet, it is just minutes away from Eivissa, where you will find a vibrant cosmopolitan city with plenty to offer.

Apart from Sant Josep, the municipality includes the villages of Sant Jordi de Ses Salines, Sant Agustí, and Es Cubells. All of them are quiet picturesque areas with charming white walled churches.

Sant Jordi village is the nearest to the airport (just 3 km). Its most notable sites are the two churches: a fortified church enclosed by palm trees and flowers and another one located at the entry to the Ses Salines Natural Park.

Attractive villages of Sant Agusti and Es Cubells provide amazing views of the sea. Sant Agusti is also well-known for its saint patron festivities with open air concerts, which are held at the end of August. Here you will also see the Es Vedra islet, rising from the sea like a pyramid.

With its laid back, traditional Ibiza vibe, all needs are catered for in this year-round vibrant community of San Jose, which is so favoured by both holiday-makers and second-home buyers.
