The resort of Es Cana with its quaint little fishing port lies just north of Santa Eulalia on Ibiza’s east coast. The resort has been heavily developed and is particularly attractive to family visitors looking for a typical beach holiday in the sun. The main tour operators provide great value holidays in a range of accommodation catering mainly for family groups.
Es Cana Beaches
The beach at Es Cana has golden sand and shallow water which makes it safe for young children. There are some good watersports to suit all ages including windsurfing and parasailing. There are some superb beaches within easy proximity such as Cala Martina which is just a stroll to the south of Es Cana and S’Argamassa Beach which is about 2km away. These offer golden, secluded beaches with more watersports activities. Cala Martina is particularly popular amongst scuba divers.
Es Cana Nightlife
The nightlife of Es Cana is fairly tame compared with the better known Ibiza resorts but this is an asset as far as the majority of holidaymakers here are concerned. There’s a good selection of bars including a fair few British pubs serving typical pub grub. There’s a selection of restaurants serving the usual Spanish, Italian or Chinese meals or if you prefer a little more choice you can take the bus into nearby Santa Eulalia which is only a few minutes away. Disco Kancela in the town centre attracts many of the younger crowd.

Things to do in Es Cana
By day the beach is obviously the main attraction but there are also other things to do when you need a break from sunning yourself. The mini road train known as the Ibiza Express takes passengers on leisurely tours of the northern coastline and countryside whilst there are boat trips from the little port in Es Cana which go across to the neighbouring island of Formentera or more locally to Santa Eulalia and Ibiza Town. The famous Ibiza ‘hippy market’ takes place just on the outskirts of Es Cana every Wednesday attracting tourists from all over the island and is well worth a visit.
