Ibiza's Most Notable Places by Area

North of Ibiza

Where tranquility finds its home

If you are looking for a small kingdom of serenity and peace that encapsulates the purest spirit of Ibiza, the north of the island is your destination. A must-visit is the municipality of San Carlos, known as Ibiza’s first hippie destination in the 60s.

Visit Bar Anita, a key spot full of curiosities that will transport you to that era of peace.

Just a kilometer from San Carlos, you must stroll through the Las Dalias Market, one of the most characteristic of Ibiza. With over 300 stalls, you’ll find crafts, handmade clothes, books, paintings, and the opportunity to discover your future through hand readings and tarot.

Can Marçà, a smuggler’s cave over 100,000 years old, has been a must-see tourist attraction since the 80s.

Moreover, Cala de San Vicente, one of the best in the north, has crystal clear waters and a perfect environment for families and children, while hiking in the area reveals breathtaking landscapes in places like Cala d’en Serra, Balansat, Balàfia, Canal d’en Martí, and San Juan de Labritja.

Sant Joan de Labritja, a small and cozy town, immerses you in a fantasy storybook setting. Also, the fishing charm of Port de Ses Caletes, a gravel and rock cove about 8 kilometers from Sant Joan, transports you to past times and offers the opportunity to be in contact with nature in one of the most attractive corners of the island. This journey through the north of Ibiza promises a unique combination of history, natural beauty, and tranquility.

As you have seen, it is an ideal area to explore, where we have a wide selection of villas. We recommend staying at the charming Can Roig, a beautiful country house furnished with high-quality materials, a large pool, and incredible views of nature that guarantee a unique coexistence.

Close by, in San Miguel, luxury merges with calm beaches. Villa Marilina, located at the end of a peaceful street, offers isolation and serenity at its best.
