What about drinks, shops and hotels?
For drinks, we recommend Bar Tres Esquinas. A very quiet and comfortable Spanish bar promising friendly employees and very reasonable prices. They have the cheapest beverages, and treats with the highest value. Another bar to try is Charlies Bar, not only they serve a wide variety of cocktails, beers and spirits, it is also a number one venue for evening entertainment.
For shopping, we recommend the Hippy Market Punta Arabi, the busiest and biggest hippy market in Ibiza with variety of things to choose from. You will for sure find anything that you are looking for in this market.
For accommodation, if you are looking for a child friendly hotel with its own baby pool and evening entertainment then the Azuline Atlantic Hotel and Alua Miami Ibiza are the best options for you. Fergus Paraiso Beach Hotel is another friendly place to stay.
When the weather is bad, there are lots of seaweed on the beach which need to be cleaned out as well as a lot of jellyfish.
There is a small harbor at the southern end of the beach where you can catch a ferry to Santa Eulària des Riu, Ibiza Town, Formentera or one of the other small resorts on the island’s south-east coast.
If you’re located in another beach and would like to see Es Canar, take the ibiza ferry as it’s a really good trajectory. You get to see the coast from south to east.
