Escape the bustling energy of southern resorts like San Antonio and Playa d'en Bossa and embrace the serenity of Northern Ibiza. Here, you'll find a gentler pace that allows you to immerse yourself in the island's stunning landscapes and woodlands.
However, don't be fooled by the tranquillity – the North has its own array of captivating attractions waiting to be discovered. In this guide , we showcase the ten most captivating destinations in this region.
Vibrant Hippy Markets
Renowned worldwide for their vibrant array of stalls adorned with vivid colours, these markets offer a diverse range of items, from jewellery and apparel to trinkets and keepsakes. The North hosts two iconic and perhaps the finest hippy markets – Las Dalias in San Carlos, a year-round Saturday market, and a night market on Mondays during the summer. The Punta Arabi Hippy Market in Es Canar takes place every Wednesday from May to October.
Ibiza Horse Valley
Just beyond the charming village of San Joan lies the Ibiza Horse Valley, a sanctuary for horses. Embark on scenic treks through the North's breathtaking countryside, allowing you to truly experience this region. Managed as a charity, this sanctuary offers a haven for nine horses rescued from neglect and maltreatment. Suitable for riders of all skill levels and ages.
Can Marçà Caves in San Miguel
Once utilised by smugglers to transport their illicit treasures, these caves now captivate visitors with their awe-inspiring formations of stalactites and stalagmites, alongside magnificent sea vistas.
Tanit Goddess of Love Statue
Honouring Ibiza's patron saint, the statue of Tanit, the Goddess of Love and fertility, graces the picturesque village of St. Vicente. Local legends suggest that a visit to this statue could aid couples facing fertility challenges.
Guided walking tours are gaining popularity across the island, providing a fantastic opportunity to uncover hidden trails and secrets that may remain undiscovered on your own. Numerous tour companies offer guided walks throughout the year.
The North boasts some of the island's most exquisite beaches. From the roaring waves of Aguas Blancas to the tranquil turquoise waters of Cala Xarraca, don your swimsuit and explore these concealed coves and bays.
Ball Pages Traditional Dance
Every Thursday at 6pm, in front of San Miguel's church, the captivating Ball Pages dance is performed. This ancient courtship ritual was where men courted their potential wives. Witness this traditional spectacle every Thursday from May to October.
Puig de Misa, Santa Eulalia Church
Rich in history and tradition, this Moorish church stands proudly at 52 metres above sea level, providing panoramic vistas of the town. Believed to have been erected around 1568, it is steeped in heritage.
Tourist Train, Santa Eulalia
All aboard the enjoyable tourist train that transports you around Santa Eulalia's centre and its surroundings. Meandering through the stunning countryside and visiting beaches such as Pou des Leo and Cala Llenya, it offers a delightful way to experience the area.
Sunset at Benirras Beach
While the Sunset Strip in San Antonio is well-known, the North is home to one of the finest spots to witness the sun's final descent. Benirras Beach is famed for its sunset drumming gatherings, occurring every Sunday throughout the year. A bohemian crowd gathers to celebrate the close of another idyllic day in Ibiza.
