You’ll find the resort of Es Cana over on the north-eastern side of Ibiza, just north of Santa Eulalia. There’s no shortage of things to do in Es Cana, and it’s got everything you could possibly want from a laid-back holiday; expect a big sandy beach in the heart of town, complete with pretty palm trees and crystal-clear waters. And there’s lots to explore nearby, too.
Whether you’re making sandcastles with your family or tearing around the bay on a banana boat, fun in the sun is the order of the day in Es Cana. Don’t forget to pick up a souvenir at the weekly hippy market; it’s much better than your average gift shop!
If you’re wondering what to do when the sun goes down, then there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from, ranging from family-friendly bars like Popeye’s Bar to late-night lounges. And if you want to step it up a gear, then the famous nightlife of Ibiza Town is only a short bus ride away.
When you wake up, you’ll be ready for another relaxing day. So surely a visit to another beach is in order! It’s an unspoilt area surrounded by rocky red cliffs and lush hills covered in pine trees, and the ideal spot if you want to get away from it all. Oh, and it’s one of the only beaches in Ibiza where you can try your hand at surfing. Let’s take a closer look at what else to do in Es Cana.
1. Playa de Es Cana
If you want to soak up the warm Mediterranean sunshine while you sit back on a beach, you’ll want to head down to Playa de Es Cana in the centre of the resort. This crescent of soft, golden sand is actually one of Ibiza’s longest beaches, and it has an exotic feel with its palm trees and turquoise waters.
2. Popeye’s Bar
Fun-filled nights out for all the family await in Es Cana, and they’re not complete with a visit to the vibrant Popeye’s Bar. This is one of the resort’s liveliest and most popular nightspots, and it’s best known for its live entertainment. You can grab a bite to eat here, too. After a night here, you’ll be ready for a day on the beach when you wake up.
3. Punta Arabi Hippy Market
Ibiza is well known for its vibrant, quirky markets, and the Punta Arabi Hippy Market in Es Cana is the most famous of the lot. Whether you’re looking for souvenirs to remember your holiday by (how about some local crafts?), or you just want to soak up the warm and welcoming atmosphere, it’s well worth a visit.
4. Cala Nova Beach
This is the second beach in Es Cana, and it’s a great place to go if you want to escape the crowds. Just a ten-minute walk from Playa de Es Cana, you’ll find Cala Nova Beach set against a beautiful natural landscape. And this is one of the only places in Ibiza where you can catch some waves and give surfing a go, or you can stick to snorkeling if you prefer.
