Ibiza events 2023: the inevitable tour of the hippie markets
Although Ibiza’s fame is mainly linked to its discos and nightlife, the island also has other unmissable attractions, such as the traditional hippie markets.
During the summer of 2023, it is still possible to breathe in Ibiza’s hippie heritage and admire some of the island’s most characteristic places while shopping in its markets. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience Ibiza in an alternative and more authentic way.
Markets are held weekly in various locations. Although the one in Las Dalias remains the most famous and popular, there are others in Punta Arabì, Cala Llenya, San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa. This means that it is not difficult to find a hippie market near your accommodation. During the Ibiza Summer 2023 you can find everything from local and self-made handicrafts to vintage and sophisticated clothing, from candles and essential oils to jewellery and unique accessories. All in a typically hippie, cheerful and carefree atmosphere.
Strolling through the stalls of Ibiza’s hippie markets is an unmissable experience to fully immerse yourself in the vibrant and colourful atmosphere of the island, which goes beyond just the nightlife. If you want to stay close to Ibiza’s most famous hippie markets, here are some of the best locations:
- San Carlos: the island’s largest and most famous hippie market, Las Dalias, is located here. San Carlos is therefore an excellent base for visiting this weekly market, held on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The area offers a good choice of hotels, holiday homes and flats.
- Ibiza Town: Ibiza’s capital hosts its hippie market every Sunday. It is smaller than the one in Las Dalias but very characteristic. Choosing Ibiza Town as a base also makes it easier to visit other attractions in the area such as Dalt Vila and the beaches in the surroundings.
- Playa d’en Bossa/San Antonio: these two resorts in Ibiza both host their own hippie market on Wednesdays, making them a convenient base for a weekly visit. They also offer a wide range of accommodation, from luxury hotels to flats for rent.
- Cala Llenya: ideal for those seeking a quieter holiday, this village hosts its small hippie market on Saturdays. It is the perfect solution for those who want to stay in an area further away from the nightlife but still close to a market.
Ibiza events 2023: a rooftop aperitif
Ibiza rooftops have become one of the island’s most popular attractions, perfect for enjoying an unforgettable aperitif with a breathtaking view of the night lights. In the summer of 2023, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a drink on the top floors of Ibiza and admire the surreal view of the island’s lights, accompanied by great music and tasty food.
Venues such as The Ninth in Playa d’en Bossa and the ME Rooftop in Santa Eulalia offer experiences marked by luxury and elegance, totally immersing visitors in Ibiza’s nightlife from a unique perspective.
The Ninth, located on the rooftop of the Hard Rock Hotel, boasts a 360-degree view of the bay of Playa d’en Bossa, with a perfect mix of modern graphic design, vibrant lounge and refined cocktails. ME Rooftop, on the other hand, with its stunning infinity pool, offers an excellent experience in the heart of Santa Eulalia, with ice-cold drinks and spectacular sunsets.
Treating oneself to a happy hour on the high floors of Ibiza is the perfect synthesis of comfort, luxury and an unprecedented and magical vision of the island, all to be enjoyed during the coming summer. Amongst many addresses, venues such as The Ninth and ME Rooftop represent two realities of excellence that can offer a truly unforgettable rooftop experience.
Ibiza events calendar 2023: sunset boat parties
Sunset boat parties are among the must-do events for those visiting Ibiza during the summer. Discovering the beauty of the island’s famous coastline and crystal clear sea from the deck of a boat, sipping cool cocktails, is a unique experience.
Many venues offer packages that include private cruises with DJ sets and bartenders on board: roving cocktail parties that allow you to admire Ibiza’s most spectacular sunsets from an unprecedented maritime perspective. The parties at sea take place throughout the summer season, from sunset until late at night, for those who want to get into the typical Ibizan mood as early as the afternoon.
An alternative is to take a unique trip to Formentera, the quieter sister island. Here, too, there is no shortage of boat parties during the day, but the atmosphere retains the relaxed and less mundane rhythms typical of Formentera.
Boat parties are one of the must-do experiences in Ibiza in 2023 to discover the island from an unusual and magical perspective. Between mundane events and more reserved alternatives, there are plenty of possibilities to set sail and enjoy a sunset aperitif aboard luxurious and elegant boats.
