Ibiza’s north is famous for its bohemian, laidback lifestyle and gorgeous scenery, from country to beaches and beyond. Its reputation as a wellness and healing community is well-earned, as there are numerous ways to treat the mind, body and soul in the north east… simply pick your favourite!
Who you’ll meet
All walks of life flock to the north east, from the young, edgy neo-bohemians escaping city dwellings and the corporate life to quirky old-timers, ex-hippies and the original bohemians who never looked back. Of course it’s the fashion that gives them away – gilets, headscarves, ponchos and oversized hats.
The not-so-secret-anymore caves at C’an Marça were once used by pirates smuggling their wares onto the island. Today, they’re filled with stalagmites and stalagties (and are actually quite chilly even in summer!) plus a replica waterfall and you can take a guided tour at regular intervals throughout the day, all year round. From the entrance to the caves you can also peer through the binoculars at Tagomago, a tiny private island just opposite, with one luxe villa sprawling across its grounds.
Embrace the peace and love vibes and embark on a yoga or wellness retreat, or for the truly determined, a bikini bootcamp! If retail therapy is more your style, the famous Las Dalias hippy market is a goldmine just waiting to be rifled through in summer, while in winter the Cala Llenya flea market is a true treasure trove of trinkets. Sunset at Benirras has also become somewhat of an Ibiza ritual, as the hippies come down from the hills and play bongos to say sayonara to the sun…
When to visit
Sun worshippers will be drawn to the north east in summer, to make the most of the early morning sun on her beautiful beaches. Blissfully deserted in winter, the sunshine still beams down daily creating great picnic spots, horseriding trails and hikes across the rest of the year make it great for adventure seekers and exercise enthusiasts alike.
