san carlos, ibizaThis busy little village of San Carlos found international renown as a haven for artists even before the arrival of tourism on Ibiza. It is the local shopping centre and meeting point for the whole north-eastern corner of Ibiza, when the beach resorts from Cala San Vicente down the coast to Santa Eulalia shut up shop for the winter.

San Carlos is still home to the letterboxes of many of those who dwell in the many fincas that adorn the surrounding countryside. For this reason, in the long years before any other telephones arrived in San Carlos, people would spend long hours collecting their mail, whilst greeting and exchanging news with their distant neighbours over a home-made hierbas?

On the opposite side of the village church to the legendary Anita’s Bar a new section of village has appeared and, over the last decade, matured to the extent that the tiny village of San Carlos has faded into a distant memory. Nonetheless it took some time before entrepreneurs ventured into the shop units beneath the duplex apartments of which the new development consists.
