At this point, you’ll understand why this place is so beloved. Ibiza dreams are made of this.
Visit Las Dalias
Ibiza has a few markets. The most famous one is the hippie market Las Dalias.
There is, however, even much more to do and see at Las Dalias besides all the market stalls. It seems as if time has been standing still there and we like sitting at one of the wooden tables chatting with friends and looking at all the different people passing by. In the garden there is a restaurant which offers Mediterranean and exotic cuisine.
The Soul Bar provides nice tunes and having a rest in the Bedouin tent is another option. On Saturdays there is a children’s area with fun and games, creative workshops and storytellers.
Visit San José
San José is the largest municipality in Ibiza and one of the best valued thanks to its amazing beaches, its villages and its beautiful landscapes.
It is the largest municipality in Ibiza and is located in the south-west of the island sharing with Ibiza and San Antonio the two most important tourist areas of the island: Playa d’en Bossa and the bay of Sant Antoni.

Another place in this beautiful town that you cannot forget is the famous defense tower des Savinar in Cala d’Hort (popularly known as the pirate’s tower), which has incredible views of the islet of es Vedrà.

This municipality also houses the only two protected natural parks that the island has: Ses Salines and Es Vedrà natural reserve, es Vedranell i es Illots de Ponent.
