Punta Arabi Hippy Market

Ibiza is famous for its vibrant, quirky markets, and the Punta Arabi Hippy Market is the most iconic of all. Whether you’re looking for souvenirs to take home, or you just want to spend some time enjoying the lovely atmosphere, it’s a must-visit on your holiday to Es Cana.

Less than a kilometre from Playa de Es Cana, the Punta Arabi Hippy Market is held every Wednesday from 10am to 7pm, between April and October. Browse the stalls before spending the rest of the day at the beach, or go after you’ve spent a relaxing day in the sun. If you’re there around lunchtime, you can tuck into some reasonably priced paella at the market’s restaurant.

Strolling through the market, you’ll come across lots of different areas, including the multicultural La Carpa tent. Watch live musicians play everything from flamenco music to reggae and Spanish rock, before moving on to La Chumbera and its handicraft stalls. Spend some time out of the sun in the shaded wood area, and grab some pizza as you look at crafts from around the world.

If you have little ones, there’s a kids’ area where they can get their face painted, make crowns with flowers and design their own t shirt. Whether you’re learning about the history of the market or having fun with your kids, it’s easy to spend more than a few hours exploring.

After your trip to the Punta Arabi Hippy Market, spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing on Playa de Es Cana. Or head to the Kentucky Derby for some fairground horse racing, before watching some live music at Popeye’s Bar.
