Vintage Ibiza 1952

Cafe Mar y Sol Ibiza

A picturesque corner of La Marina in the 1950s, when the Island began opening up to tourism.

Early each morning Ibiza’s fishermans’ quarter springs to life, teeming with stalls of fresh produce. There’s an industrious buzz as the women of the neighbourhood tend to their daily chores. The iconic Cafe Mar y Sol oversees all – it is the area’s social hub and a meeting point for islanders, newcomers, artists and intellectuals, where gossip is exchanged and stories told. To sit on the cafe’s corner terrace today is to take a step back to an altogether different Ibiza. To a long-forgotten world.
