Es Cana Holidays
A small, family-friendly resort on the northeast coast of Ibiza, Es Cana is a superb destination if you're looking for blissed-out days in the Mediterranean sun. Swaying palm trees, golden sands, and good transport to neighbouring towns makes it the ideal place to stay if you want to dip in and out of Ibiza’s energetic party scene. The beach is a highlight of the resort, as is the famous Hippy Market which descends on the town once a week.
The weather in Ibiza is classically Mediterranean, with famously long, hot summers and mild winters.

What is included ?
More laidback than some of the party-hard towns nearby, Es Cana offers a family-friendly Ibiza experience. Its sandy beach is the real heart of the town, and the hotspot for relaxation and entertainment. During the day, a range of water sports, waterfront bars, and international restaurants offer an alternative to tanning. But it’s at night that the area really come alive, with music, karaoke and competitions going on late into the evening. Clubbers may want to hop on the Disco Bus to Ibiza Town for some of the more famous nightlife.
You’re never going to be short of things to do at night in Es Cana, particularly if you book your holiday during Ibiza's popular summer party season. Be sure to catch the sunset at the harbour, then prepare for an evening of cocktails, karaoke and quizzes at the bars and restaurants along the waterfront. If you’d prefer to hit the island’s more famous superclubs, catch the nightly Disco Bus to Ibiza Town, or venture to San Antonio’s popular West End district.
Golden sand, secluded coves and lively beach bars… Es Cana’s crescent-shaped beach is the best place for relaxing and socialising. Try your hand at waterskiing and parasailing, or simply find a peaceful spot to soak up the sun. Children can swim safely in the shallow waters and there is plenty of dining options with stunning sea views. For a change of scenery, hop on on an organised boat trip from the harbour.
Es Cana’s weekly Hippy Market is a highlight of the town. Held each Wednesday at the Holiday Club grounds, it is a treasure trove of bohemian jewellery, handicrafts and printed accessories. Arrive early for the best finds, and don’t forget to have a go at bartering. Once you’ve squandered all your euros, grab a drink and enjoy the lively street entertainment.

Spring or mid-autumn are great times to visit Es Cana if you want a peaceful holiday with warm weather and fewer crowds.

Winter is the low season in Es Cana, and although there is more chance of rain, you can still enjoy pleasant temperatures in the mid-teens.
