ABOUT THE AREA : SAN CARLOS
The village of San Carlos is located in the North of Ibiza Island. It is a laid-back village with its touch of hippie culture, particularly seen at the popular Las Dalias Hippie Market (see below). San Juan proposes a few restaurants like San Carlos Restaurant and some bars around a lovely main street and the Church Plaza. Key services are available: groceries shops, bank, pharmacy, post office, and some souvenir boutiques.
Ibiza´s North region is the place for a more real living experience, the people being in general in a more relaxed and different state of mind than those in the South and West. The North offers great nature like the beaches Benirras, Aguas Blancas, Cala Boix, or Cala San Vicente,
Nice chill-out restaurants we recommend in the region on the road to San Lorenzo Ses Escoles, Nagai, Balafia and La Paloma, Rebrots in Portinaxt or Elements on Benirras beach,

Las Dalias Hippie Market is the most famous attraction in San Carlos, started in 1985. The number of shops has exploded from 5 to 200 today. The busiest days are Saturdays in August, when up to 15,000 visitors hover around the stands. Las Dalias offers also street restaurant and food, music animations with a DJs and live music.
Bar Anita in San Carlos was founded in 1876, it was the first shop in Sant Carles. The current owners, Ana and Bartolomé took over the property in the 1940s and have maintained its welcoming character and worldly spirit with bohemian flair. Bar Anita has the distinction of being the post office of Sant Carles - the telephone cabin and mailboxes can still be seen inside. Money orders arrived here that financed the hippies and artists in the 1970s, whom the local knew as “Peluts” (hairy). In return these friendly settlers called Anita “Mom”.
