More on Santa Gertrudis
The town has been made famous for its magnificent tapas and its bocadillos – toasted bread rolls which are drizzled with olive oil, covered with tomato and filled with assorted fillings such as serano ham (cured Spanish ham), queso (cheese) or pollo (chicken).
As far from the sea as you can get, this village retains an agricultural feel despite its underlying ‘street cafe’ cool. Dominated by the centrally positioned church, which celebrates many of the most important local weddings on the island, it is a meeting place often chosen by locals as an alternative to the tourist laden fringes of the island.
Rapidly growing in size as the rest of the world comes to realise how small Ibiza really is, the village is a little over ten minutes to the nearest beach and some thirty minutes from the most distant!
If you’ve got to go to the other side of the island, you’ll inevitably stop here for a coffee en route.
