Have you heard about Ibiza’s famous Hippy Market? It’s one of the island top attractions and a must-see for every holidaymaker. From Las Dalias to San Joan theres plenty of hippy markets all across the island so wherever you stay you can enjoy a fabulous shopping experience.

!Top Tip! The biggest markets are the Punta Arabí Hippy Market on Wednesday in Es Caná and the Las Dalias Hippy Market on Saturday in San Carlos.


Cova D’en Marçà – San Miguel 

The Can Marçà Cave over on the north side of the island represents one of the most visited tourist attractions. The cave offers a 40-minute walk through stalactites, stalagmites, waterfalls and small lakes, and is located on the cliffs of Port de Sant Miguel.

!Fun Fact! It was originally discovered by local smugglers, who accessed it through an opening just 10 meters above sea level. From their boats they would hoist their merchandise and hide it in the interior until it was safe. Since the 70’s a family have owned it conditioned it recovering the waterfalls and streams that existed in the cave in remote times and creating a singular spectacle of light, water and sound.
