Nurture your Inner Bohemia
Es Cana may be home to the Hippy Market, but it’s the village of San Carlos that is one of the original meccas favoured by actual hippies. Visit this bohemian village, about 10mins inland, where being a hippy is a lifestyle, not a fashion statement. Anita’s Bar is a must, whether you’re peace-loving and long haired, or not.
Ride the Crests
Head to the right of the main beach, keep walking for about ten minutes, and you will arrive at Cala Martina beach, a sheltered, family friendly spot which is a popular hangout for watersports fanatics. Here you can join the reputable windsurfing school, and pick up some tips on how to ride the waves like a pro.
Be a Monkey for a Day
This fun outdoor activity will keep everyone in the family entertained. The Ibizan answer to Go Ape, Acrobosc is set in an area of pine trees, near Cala Pada beach. There are two assault courses for you to try; balance on tightropes, zip through the air and take a leap of faith. Don’t worry, you have a safety harness attached!
Meander the Markets
Es Cana isn’t the only place in the area with a market, and if you love to shop and hunt for bargains, check out another shopping hotspot nearby. The Las Dalias hippy market is held every Saturday in San Carlos, selling handicrafts, jewellery and textiles. During the summer, there’s one here at night, with live music, too!
