Located on a rocky hill with a stunning scenic view, the Punta Arabi Club is a perfect destination for young people coming to Ibiza to have fun. This is where the well-known Es Cana hippy market takes place every Wednesday.
In the north-east of Ibiza, overlooking the sea, between the touristic station of Es Cana 2,300 feet away and the beach of Cala Martina 1,100 feet away. The capital, Eivissa, is located 14 miles away and the airport 17 miles away, about 45 minutes driving.
Located inside the village hotel Punta Arabi, the hippy market of Es Cana, held every Wednesday is a good source of ''peace and love'' souvenirs for vacationers. This is where is held the flea market, with its troop of characters claiming to be the descendants of Janis Joplin or Jim Morrison, who evolve in the middle of numerous high colour displays. The bakery is only open on Wednesdays for the hippy market. The Punta Arabi Club is not recommended for families, children or people with disabilities.
Built in 1977 and open between May and October, the Punta Arabi Club, belonging to the Azuline Resorts hotelier, looks like a large village, well decorated with floral gardens, pools and waterfalls, with a nice smell of pine trees, in the heart of a pine woods of 80 hectares. The 350 units are spread out in one level bungalows painted ochre, up to a rocky promontory where a large rectangular pool 77 inches deep nestles, offering a wonderful view. A stage welcomes the animations. The music broadcast through the loudspeakers is loud, but it creates a young ambience and the clientele usually comes here to have fun. The pool is surrounded by a solarium area with deckchairs, but without sunshades. You will also find showers and a toilet. The towels are supplied in the rooms. You can even play the giant noughts and crosses. Close to the restaurant, a large white circus tent covers a stage for the shows. At last, the sport lovers are offered a multi-sport ground to play soccer or handball.
The rooms of the Punta Arabi do not offer a lot of comfort but they are original and well decorated, in their nice traditional style their white walls and their tiled floor. The hotel is called the Punta Arabi because of the Arabic architecture of the bungalows. They are all different: they can have one, two, three or four beds, air-conditioning or not, some of the rooms offer a separate toilet but others don't, some of them have a terrace and others only offer a balcony or just a picture window. In general, the view of the sea is absolutly stunning. The units include a wooden desk, a table, two chairs and a dryer, but you will not find a TV, a refrigerator, a telephone, nor a safe (available at the reception for a fee of ?15 or £12 a week). The bathroom offers a flexible shower and welcome products.
The clients of the Punta Arabi Club can eat in the large restaurant that offers a local and international cuisine as buffet. The dining room is really nice and well decorated with columns, white pillars, wooden girders in the ceiling and large wooden tables with seats, simply in sum. You will also find a terrace under a large white tent. Breakfast is served from 7.30am to 9.30am, followed by a brunch up untill 12.00pm. Dinner is served from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. A tapas and paella evening is held once a week. An à la carte restaurant opens only during summer. You can have your favorites cocktails and cold drinks at the pool bar.
If you want to go to the Cala Martina beach 1,100 feet up the left side, all you need to do is cross over the street and you are there in 10 minutes walking. The water is clear but the sand, quite coarse, is not really great. You will find deckchairs and sunshades, a bar, a restaurant and a water sports centre that rents pedalos, but there are no showers available. You can also play beach volleyball. You can see an island right in front of the beach, which it is supervised.
