Explore Es Canar

Es Canar, also called Es Cana, is a family resort with good beaches and a reasonable selection of accommodation and restaurants. It does not have the high quality restaurants and shops of nearby Santa Eularia but it is a good value resort.

The beaches are good not just for lazing and sun-bathing but a wide variety of water sports are offered including diving, water-skiing, surfing and wind-surfing.  The beaches are monitored by  lifeguards making them a good choice for children.

The town has a pleasant fishing harbour and a village centered around its main square. The main bars and restaurants are around the harbour and beach area.

Ibiza is well known for its Hippy Markets and the best one is each Wednesday at Es Canar very close to the resort. Here you can buy handmade jewellry, clothing and other items from the community of artists who have set up home on the islands since the 1960's.

There are some beautiful walks, either north along the coast to Cala San Vicente or south to Santa Eularia with lots of magnificent scenery and quiet coves to see along the way. Don't worry too much about refreshements - there are lots of great little beach bars along the way!

Places to visit nearby

Balafi is a nearby fortified village that is worth a trip.

There are daily boat trips to Ibiza town and Santa Eularia. You can also do a day trip to the island of Formentera.
