Es Canar (Es Cana) information & Guide

Es Canar is often known as Es Cana by the Brit's

Es Canar Description

Es Canar is a fairly large resort, 25km northeast of Ibiza town. As it has developed into a resort from a fishing village it has managed to retain much of its original character.  The resort has mainly developed in the area behind the small harbour which is situated on the southern headland, and also on the opposite headland Punta de ses Calderes where there are two large hotels and an apartment complex overlooking Es Canar bay. The central section backing the beach is relatively undeveloped.

Es Canar is a a colourful charm with the white buildings contrasting with the deep blue seas, the dark green pine forests, the pale blue sky and pale yellow sands.

There’s a good selection of bustling bars, cafes and restaurants, particularly on the seafront, but Nightlife is relaxed in Es Cana.

The occasional local fiestas add a colourful flare to the resort.

One event that must be visited is the local ‘hippy market’ craft fair, held on Wednesdays only a short walk south from the harbour.

The smaller Cala Nova beach is at the end of the resort and can be reached by a coastal path.

There are some spectacular walks along the coast either north or south. Try the coastal path to Santa Eulària for spectacular views of small coves and secluded beaches. Depending on your energy you can either walk back or catch the local bus.

The fortified village of Balafi is just 15km from Es Canar and is worth a visit. A trip to the capital, Ibiza Town, is easy and 'a must' for shoppers and those who like the more outrageous things in life.
