While the beautiful beaches, the quiet countryside and the vivid nightlife are enough to entertain you for a week or more, Ibiza town and some of the island’s villages are worth a visit for its eclectic shops. From well-curated showrooms to quirky stores and Ibiza traditional craftwork boutiques. The choices are endless!
Here we’ve rounded up some of our favourite shops which we think you should pay a visit next time you are here on the island:
This shop is located just outside the historic wall of Dalt Villa, in Ibiza town. It’s the perfect place to go if you are after handcrafted products – their collection features stylish hats, baskets and traditional island style crochet accessories. With 100 years of tradition, the Bonet family certainly know a thing or two when it comes to accessorising in true Ibiza style.
This charming store is housed in a converted traditional finca just outside the main square of the pretty village of Santa Gertrudis – is the kind of shop you struggle to walk past and not pop in! Look no further for unique homeware, delicate silk dresses and cool craftwork. You will immediately fall in love with this shop and its laid-back bohemian vibe and we are pretty sure you will happily come back to every time you visit the island.
The village of San Rafael was declared the island’s only Craftwork Special Centre in 1990 because of its traditional pottery shops – Ceramica Can Kinoto and Ceramics Icardi. In these famous ceramic shops, you will find beautiful handmade potteries – the perfect unique souvenir or gift for your loved ones.
Merel and Alok are the founders of this renown brand from Ibiza, epitomising the island’s hippie spirit. Their pieces range from boho handbags, richly embroidered and made from fabrics sourced in Mexico, Rajasthan and Morocco, to ethnic leather boots and colourful dresses. In addition to the main store, on the Sant Joan road, you can find their unique pieces at Las Dalias hippy market.
When you’re driving from Ibiza to Santa Gertrudis, you don’t expect a cute shop like La Galería Elefante at the quite busy road. But it’s there and it’s worth a visit. Hidden among the trees you will find an old finca renovated into a wonderful quirky vintage shop, chock-full of global treasures. The collections include home decoration accessories as well as excellent womenswear.
If you have room for only one extra item in your suitcase, it should be something from the iconic brand Sal De Ibiza. Salt, after all, is part of the island’s history! The brand has now expanded ranging from its iconic salt products to beach accessories and Ibiza-inspired fashion: flowing cover-ups, pom-pom embellished kaftans, classic espadrilles and versatile swimsuits. Even if you can find their products more or less everywhere on the island, we advise you to visit their new concept stores located on the road to Santa Eularia and on the road to San José.
