On the island of fashion, shopping is almost compulsory. In the port of Ibiza, amongst the narrow streets of the neighbourhood of La Marina and Sa Penya, you will find boutiques with avant-garde designs, as well as establishments where you can acquire Adlib fashion crafts, decoration, records from all the discotheques and on souvenirs. Just a few metres away, around the Vara de Rey promenade and the streets of Bartolomé de Roselló and Ignacio Wallis, you will also discover a wide variety of glamorous shops with exclusive garments, competing with the best-known franchises.

The luxury Marina Ibiza and Marina Botafoch, in Paseo Joan Carles I, have boutiques with renowned international brands. In Sant Antoni, Santa Eulària and Santa Gertrudis you will also be able to find original clothes, furniture, homeware and gift stores.

One good idea is to scour through the street markets that are held in different places around the island. The most famous one is that of Las Dalias, in Sant Carles, characterised by a hippy-chic style with over 200 stalls loaded with colour, exclusive garments and a friendly atmosphere. It is open every Saturday of the year, and also on Mondays and Tuesdays in summer, at night. A smaller version of this is the Sant Joan street market, which takes place on Sundays and also has live music and a relaxed atmosphere. The Sant Jordi hippodrome (Saturdays) and Cala Llenya (Sundays) also attract many people searching for second-hand objects and clothes.

If you would like to acquire typical gastronomy products, one practical option is the Mercat Nou de Ibiza (Calle Castilla) and the surrounding streets, where there is a diverse range of shops for gourmets along with establishments offering delights like flaó (cheesecake with mint and anise), sobrasada, the esteemed local olive oil and the upcoming wines of the island, made in five wineries which can be visited. Not to forget the traditional Ibizan hierbas (an anise-based liqueur macerated with over 20 types of herbs), a memento many visitors take away with them.
