EIVISSA-IBIZA

Every time I came to Ibiza I wonder how it is possible that around such a beautiful, ancient and evocative center like Eivissa, they have built huge and horrible buildings that have ruined this amazing landscape. Eivissa is divided into two main parts: the old town, called the Dalt Vila (literally "Upper Town"), located on a little mountain by the sea, and the (horrible) modern part, called the Eixample ("extension").
In the old town there are a large selection of small boutiques, high fashion stores, small and charming restaurants, a great selection of bars and, of course, nightclubs that have made of the island's nightlife the most attractive part for tourism.

LAS DALIAS HIPPY MARKET-IBIZA

For a different night, you must go to Las Dalias Hippy Market: every Saturday all year long, in Sant Carles de Peralta-Ibiza, and during the summer you can catch the Las Dalias Night Market every Monday evening.
 With its hundreds of colourful stalls, characters and live performances, here you can find from the simplest things as fine-haired Kafkian,  classic total-white clothing, hats, necklaces, shells, Ibiza salt, someone reads the hand, who does the henna, someone else makes ayurvedic massages and you can listen some good live concert. (Amazing the carousel built with recycled materials).
 Las Dalias is not only a place to get a drink, to shop, to eat and to dance. Here you can find the traditional bohemian spirit of Ibiza well preserved despite there are a lot of tourists.

CALA MARTINA - ES CANAR -IBIZA

At the southern end of Es Canar, close to Hippy Market, there is the sandy beach of Cala Martina, backed by the Chirincana campsite, it's one of the most popular beaches for the island's windsurfers when the south wind blows, from here you can admire the islets of En Caragoler and En Moreneller, the island of Rodona and the island of Santa Eulària.
The Chirincana Beach Bar is a popular spot for the young hippie crowd. The most beautiful place to take a bath is the cale with a little wooden pier between the sandy beach and a pine grove, here
the sea is very beautiful, turquoise, crystal clear and transparent, and absolutely not crowded.

HIPPY MARKET - IBIZA

The Ibiza biggest markets are the Punta Arbi Hippy Market in Es Canar, and the Las Dalias Market in San Carlos. The Hippy Market takes place every Wednesday from April to October from 10.00am to 7.00pm. This market is very crowded but full of colors, an happy atmosphere, and good live music. It’s stuffed full of item from all over the world, many handmade, some major on local handcrafts, other bring you exotic clothing, textiles and jewellery from places such as South America, India and indonesia. Ibiza has strong artistic roots going back to the early 60’s when designers, artisans and painters flocked to the island to experince its good vibrations and freedom expression.
 With a tour in this market you can fly back to the joyful atmosphere of the fabulous Sixties.

S'ARENAL PETIT-PORTINAX - IBIZA

Situated in the North of the island, Portinatx  impresses with three great beaches - S'Arenal Gros (which is the largest), S'Arenal Petit (which is the smallest) and Playa Porto Beach.
I went to S'Arenal Petit, it was a rainy day, so this small beach it was not busy (the ideal condition for me)!
The water is crystal clear and full of fish, you can even swim to the larger beach because it's very close.
Until a few years ago a small river emptied its bed on this beach which thanks to this natural phenomenon has this particular shape.
The north coast of Ibiza has some stunning bays and maybe S' Arenal petit is one of the nicest that it is possible to stay at. If you want a quiet beach in a cove with lovely views then this is it.
