Es Canar

Es Canar is situated at 4,5 kilometres from Santa EulÓria des Riu, located between Club Punta ArabÝ, where on Wednesdays there is the best hippie market of Eivissa, and Esculls des Canar, as well as nearby the village of es Canar and La Joya. From its coast you can see Esculls d'en Racˇ and the small islands sa Galera and Illa des Canar.

This frequented u-shaped sea inlet is quit big, the beach has fine-grained white sand and there is a promenade with plants along the coastline of this beach.

This sandy area is developed, there are residential and tourist buildings, the water is transparent and it is open to the wind from the east which blows normally from the sea and is not too strong. These conditions explain that es Canar is excellent if you want to do sailing sports.

The biggest part of its ground is sandy, although there are also some areas with seaweed and it has a quite gentle slope (at 20 metres from the coast there is a depth of more than two metres). Next to this bay you can find the port facilities (fishing and marina).

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport or by bicycle. The nearest bus stop is located at one hectometre. There is a sea line between es Canar and Santa EulÓria des Riu, Eivissa and Cala Llonga.

Municipality information Santa EulÓria des Riu

The municipality of Santa EulÓria des Riu is situated in the easternmost area of Eivissa. The origin of the name has to be searched in the 16th century, when the church was built, which is dedicated to the saintliness which gives the name to this municipality and around which this village grew. Before that, the village was called Xarc (ôeastö) during the Muslim period and Quartˇ des Rei during the 14th century.

The 11 kilometres of the only river of the Balearic Island, Riu de Santa EulÓria, irrigates this territory. This river, which has no water during the dry period, has defined the development of this area until the 18th century because the water used to move the flour mills located below Puig de Missa (52 metres high) and irrigated the agricultural land of Horta de Santa EulÓria. Nowadays the economy is lead by the tourism in this municipality that concentrates a big part of the touristy offer of Eivissa.

The coastal area suffered the attacks of the Magreb and Turkish pirates since the 15th century, which destroyed in the following century the first fortified church, which was used as a defence against these pirates. In the 18th century the actual configuration of this village began: parroquia de Santa EulÓria des Riu, Sant Carles des Peralta, Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera and Jes˙s, as well as the town divided into two areas, the old town (Puig de Missa) and the more modern area next to the coast, Vila Nova.
The municipality has 17 beaches.
