Cultural and social activities in the springtime, Ibiza
Hippy Markets in Ibiza
Ibiza has a number of unique and lively artisan markets. With weekly openings, events, great food, and live music, these island attractions have always been very popular and have drawn regular recurring tourists. The spring is a great time to gather for relaxed, casual weekends filled with history, culture, and community.
The top four hippie markets on offer are:
- The famous Las Dalias Hippy Market with its brightly decorated outdoor terraces of over 200 market stalls
- San Juan’s popular Sunday market, perhaps the most cultured hippy origin with entertaining live music, regular dancing and a delicious paella street food performance will be finally back from February 2023 onwards.
- The grand flea market in Sant Jordi (every Saturday morning), sells an abundance of almost anything from ‘bric and brac’ to some relatively valuable household furniture.
- Punta Arabi is a mix of San Juan’s low-key vibe and Las Dalias size…. Here, people arrive by ‘the coach load’ to shop the market stalls and enjoy a day out in Es Canar.
Museums and Galleries
Ibiza is known for its two main cultural attractions in Ibiza Town; the Museum of Archaeology and the Contemporary Art Museum of Ibiza. Both are well worth a visit. If archaeology is of interest, the Dalt Vila Museum preserves and researches remains found on the islands of Ibiza and Formentera over the last few thousand years. Visitors can discover ancient artefacts and excavated burial sites, tracing the history of the island from Punic to Roman times.
If art is more your style, then The Contemporary Art Museum of Ibiza also located in Dalt Vila, is a wonderfully unique art gallery showcasing permanent collections of art from the 1960’s all the way through to new modern art.
