San Carlos


Sant Carles is one of  those typical, small villages in which you have a church and some restaurants, the houses will be scatered around the village, in the countryside. The church is the centre piece, it’s from the 18th century and its porch is a place to spend some time sitting and relaxing.

But Sant Carles is better known for the hippies settlements from the 60’s, still today you can sense the spirit in places like ‘Las Dalias’ (opened all year round on Saturdays 10am to 8pm; summer months on Sundays, Mondays & Tuesdays 7pm to 1am) or Ca n’Anneta, one of the islands most famous and traditional restaurants. In fact, Ca n’Anneta is the place to go for Hierbas Ibicencas (local herb liquor) and Flaò, a cheesecake.

Also worth visiting is Es Trull de Ca n’Andreu, a 17th century farm, with a renovated typical Ibicencan farmhouse, which has been turned into a museum. This is a great place to learn and experience the lifestyle of the native Ibicencos. Font de Peralta, this old fountain runs down through a series of small pools towards a holding tank (safareig). The Font de Morna is fed by the water filtering from the torrent of s’Argentera.

 


The resort of Es Canar is between Santa Eularia and Sant Carles on the North Eastern coast, so it is very famous for its outstanding sunrises. Mainly, a family resort, Es Canar has some white sandy beaches, many souvenir shops and a great selection of restaurants, pubs and a few Beach Clubs. You can catch a ferry to Santa Eulalia, Ibiza Town or Formentera from its small habour.

South from the centre of the resort you arrive to Punta Arabí where you can find one of the biggest Hippy Markets on the island, opened every Wednesday, from the 20th of May until the 28th of October, 10 am to 6pm.
