The Ibizan resort of Es Cana is the perfect antidote to the all-night party destinations much of the island is famous for. Ideal for families or for couples who want to holiday in beautiful Ibiza but don’t like the idea of 24-hour clubbing, Es Cana is a laid-back resort with its own set of attractions.
Although a fairly small resort, Es Cana has many excellent restaurants and bars. There are several beach bars dotted along the scenic seafront but the emphasis here is on ambient music and good food rather than all-day and all-night partying. Es Cana beach is great for families and boasts soft, golden sands, a wide range of water-sports and crystal clear water. Nightlife may be more laid-back than in other Ibizan resorts, but there are plenty of bars and live music venues, many of which become very lively after dark.
Package holidays in Es Cana tend to involve modern hotels with good facilities. Accommodation here is generally of a fairly high standard. Those looking for cheap package holiday deals may find self-catering properties are their best bet. Eating out in Es Cana is a joy with a range of cafes and restaurants catering to all budgets and tastes. Local specialties such as paella are popular with holidaymakers but there are plenty of British dishes for less adventurous diners.
Boat-trips are popular with those on their holidays in Es Cana and range from lively “booze-cruises” to relaxing days spent drifting on the Mediterranean to the strains of chill-out music. The resort has a fantastic tourist train that is extremely popular and offers trips around local attractions and landmarks. The world-famous Hippy Market takes in Es Cana every Wednesday and the town is swamped with visitors from all over the island who come to grab a bargain.
