Sa Talaiassa (Catalan pronunciation: [sə tələˈjasə]), also known as Sa Talaia or Sa Talaia de Sant Josep, is the highest mountain on the island of Ibiza in the Balearic Islands of Spain.[1] It is located in the southwest of the island. Talaia, the name of the mountain, means "watchtower" in Catalan, Talaiassa referring to an especially large one.

Sant Josep de sa Talaia, the island's largest municipality, is named after this mountain.
