Hippiemarket Las Dalias
The Las Dalias market is one of the obligatory points to do your shopping in Ibiza. Las Dalias is one of the markets in Ibiza that has managed to preserve its essence over time, and the hippie atmosphere is palpable despite the passing of the years.
Las Dalias is a market that is many years old, so you can see the mark left by the hippies, an atmosphere that floats throughout the market. San Carlos was the cradle of the hippies that arrived in the 1960s and soon after this market was organized that still evokes the hippie essence of the time. Las Dalias is located in a rural environment and along the entire route, we find trees and very open spaces, which gives a feeling of spaciousness throughout the market.

Hippiemarket Club, Avinguda Punta Arabí, 18, 07849 Es Canar, Balearic Islands, España
Hippiemarket Es Canar
The Es Canar market is undoubtedly the most genuine and largest in Ibiza. From April to October, this market is held every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Also known as the Punta Arabí Hippy Market, this market has hundreds of stalls selling the most varied handicraft items in the shade of a pine forest. If you plan to visit it, you better reserve a few hours to explore it thoroughly.
Although craft markets have been a tradition in Ibiza for decades, this is the genuine Ibizan hippy market. This is where the hippies who arrived on the island in the 1970s began to sell their crafts. Today, the hippies have disappeared but the market still retains all its essence: the vendors offer original items and walking through their stalls is a real delight.

Beach Aguas Blancas
Aguas Blancas (Aigües Blanques) is one of the favorite beaches for the residents of the island. Sheltered by high, beautifully colored grainy cliffs, the surroundings are pristine, to spectacular effect. The beach has fine, soft golden sand, and the bottom of the sea is also sandy, but with some scattered rocks, so care must be taken.
And don't be alarmed if you see people walking around covered in reddish mud, adding a little water to the mud on the cliffs forms a paste that is very beneficial for the skin.
With the right wind, Aguas Blancas usually has a good swell, with big waves to do a little bodysurfing. On less windy days the water is incredibly clear, perfect for snorkelling – there are two interesting rocks just 30 meters from the shore and a small cove to the right of the beach.
Pou des Lleó, s / n., 07849, Santa Eulalia del Río, Ibiza España
Beach Pou Des Lleo
Popular with the island folk, this small, well-sheltered cove is idyllic for those seeking tranquility because even in high season, it remains relatively quiet. Pou des Lleó, with its mix of soft fine sand and pebbles, continues to maintain that fishing port air thanks to the typical fishermen's huts located on both sides of the beach.
Pou del Lleo, which translates as "Lion's Well", boasts spectacular views of the private island of Tagomago, located two kilometers off the coast. From the beach, it is a half-hour walk to the Torre d'en Valls, one of the watchtowers that were built in Ibiza in the past against pirate attacks. Although you cannot go up, the surrounding area offers wonderful views of the sea and Tagomago.
The picturesque countryside around the cove is particularly suitable for walking and its crystal clear turquoise waters and unusual rock formations make it perfect for swimming and snorkelling.
In Pou Des Lleo, there are three restaurants. The first, a hostel, is on the left as you approach the beach. It is an authentic rustic-style restaurant with several terraces that offers fresh fish and meat, as well as paella.
The second is located directly on the beach. More of a beach hut, it offers light meals and snacks. The third is found by continuing on the dirt track past the beach for a few minutes. It is specialized in fish and shellfish.

The Bar Anita restaurant, better known by Ibizans as Ca n'Anneta, is located in the center of San Carlos, next to the town church. It is one of the oldest bars on the island, a fact that gives it an unparalleled charm.
Ibizans and travelers alike drive to Sant Carles to savor a glass of its delicious herbal liqueur, which the same family has been producing for a century following the traditional recipe.
It began as a small shop in the village until a woman named Anita took over the house and in the year 60she openedwhat is now Ca n'Anneta. The cultural revolution that took place in Ibiza at that time, championed by the famous hippies, was one of the reasons that led to its opening. It was the post office of this area, an aspect that made it possible for it to quickly become a meeting point for residents and tourists who met in this space to talk about the changes that were taking place on the island.
Almost sixty years later, it retains its peculiar mailboxes and is undoubtedly an essential place when it comes to getting to know the most genuine Ibiza.
