San Antonio boasts some of the most beautiful sunsets you will see on the island. This popular tourist town lies on Ibiza’s rugged west coast.
Also referred to as Sant Antoni de Portmany, this is the second largest town in Ibiza. The huge bay here is protected on either side by large headlands. These headlands are home to some of the island’s smaller resorts and more remote beaches. The craggy cliffs and coves offer superb snorkelling and scuba diving.
Nightlife in San Antonio, Ibiza
San Antonio is one of the top places for nightlife in Ibiza and indeed the world. There isn’t a shortage of lively bars and nightclubs in San Antonio. Most visitors on a night out start with a few drinks along the seafront promenade. They then proceed to head to the hip, cool and trendy venues of the West End.
After that, those left standing can move on to the famous Eden Nightclub close to the harbour, or next door to Es Paradís. Visitors who prefer live entertainment should check out the weekend lineups. Especially at the popular party hotel Ibiza Rocks. They also feature regular DJ’s and have 2 swimming pools and 4 bars. Here you can stay refreshed and well lubricated!
Sunsets & Strip
The well named Sunset Strip lies on one side of the San Antonio harbour. This strip offers splendid views across the bay from its lively cafes and bars. To the other side of the harbour is Arenal Beach where water sports and activities are popular. This beach has excellent facilities. The calm, shallow waters are ideal for families with young children.
Some of the smaller, more picturesque beaches can be reached from San Antonio harbour. Small ferries run throughout the day transporting people. Cala Bassa is a popular example.
Many visitors choose to bring a cooler box to enjoy a picnic during their visit to Cala Bassa. Here you can explore some delightful sea caves and grotto’s, so be sure to bring along a snorkelling set.
