The North Eastern Ibiza resort of Es Cana is one of the more family friendly holiday destinations on the island and a world away from the super clubs that the island is famous for.
Despite being developed as a tourist hub, Es Cana still has a lot of local character and manages to retain the feel of a Balearic island. Traditional white houses overlook a harbour and bay that really could be taken straight from a painting.
The beach is a paradise of golden sand and turquoise, shallow water that make for a great place for the kids to play. In fact the resort as a whole is incredibly child friendly, making Es Cana holidays perfect for the whole family.
Just away from the beach is the promenade that follows the coastline. The promenade features a selection of many quaint bars, cafes, restaurants and shops that are guaranteed to brighten you day.
There is also a weekly street market on Wednesdays, selling lots of homemade crafts and jewellery that will make perfect souvenirs or gifts to remember your holiday. Put your negotiating skills to the test as you barter for bargain souvenirs.
Es Cana has options for those looking for family friendly all inclusive, bargain self catering or something in between. Use our search form to find the perfect option for you.
