Nestled on the idyllic east coast of Ibiza, Es Cana is a beautiful beach resort, even by Balearic sunshine. It's a fashionable, chilled-out place, a world away from the foam parties of San Antonio. Bathed in Balearic sunshine and fringed by swaying palm trees with rugged mountains in the background, Es Cana is centred on a picturesque harbour and features a lovely beach.
Es Cana holiday will suit families and couples looking for a relaxed beach break in the Balearics, as well as groups of friends looking to enjoy the water sports and nightlife.
The main central beach in Es Cana is a glorious golden crescent of soft sands, curving around sparkling Mediterranean waters. The sands shelve gently into the shallow sea making it popular with families, while there's also a lifeguard service. A short stroll up the coast will bring you to the beautiful Cala Nova Beach, which is a popular spot for surfers and enjoys a really chilled-out vibe.
Alternatively, head down the coast to Cala Martina Beach, which is a windsurfing and kitesurfing hotspot and home to a top dive school. Other aquatic activities you can enjoy on a holiday to Es Cana include banana boating, sailing and fishing.
There is a great selection of shops in the resort, although the undoubted shopping highlight of a holiday to Es Cana is the famous Hippy Market with its bustling, bohemian atmosphere and all manner of stalls selling clothing, leather goods, jewellery and artwork, mainly from India.
Dining in the resort is really varied with plenty of restaurants, cafés and grill houses, while there are plenty of bars and chilled-out beach lounges. For a top night on the town, the famously hedonistic Ibiza Town is just a few minutes' drive away.
