Places similar to Ibiza Town to visit
What started life as a small, fishing village has now become a world-famous gateway to clubbers’ paradise and is a popular choice when booking Ibiza holidays. Holidays in San Antonio are renowned for good times and music, thanks to the superclubs that have made it their home and the resort’s legendary ‘Sunset Strip’, where the next party is only a few footsteps away. Amnesia is one of the world’s most iconic clubs and you’ll find it just outside of the resort, cranking out the best in dance music and playing host to some of the biggest names in the DJ circuit. Ibiza Rocks is another popular venue, set in the grounds of a hotel and with a permanent stage, ready to showcase acts of all genres.
However, there’s more to this destination than meets the eye. While it might be known for its night-time craziness, it does have a quieter side. To watch the sun set and relax to some ambient beats, head to Café Mambo. If the nightlife doesn’t see you keeping vampire hours, you can top up your tan on San Antonio’s beach. Loaded with water sports, it’s a great spot to revive your partied-out system. However, if you’d rather chill out in peace and quiet, you’ll find the beach of Cala Gracio a twenty-minute walk from the resort.
Things to do
There’s no better way to start your day than by soaking up some sunshine on San Antonio’s golden-sanded beach. You can flop on a sun lounger or, if the previous night hasn’t left you feeling too tired, you’ll find an excellent range of water sports to wake you up. By the time the evening comes, you’ll be ready to head straight to the Sunset Strip to see the sun go down, which is when the town really comes alive. Head out on a party boat, or sip cocktails in the swish Cafe del Mar, and when it gets late it’s time to pull out the big guns: make it Ibiza Rocks or Eden.
If you’re planning a holiday to San Antonio, then a great nightlife is obviously something that’s high on your priorities. The eclectic and colourful San Antonio bar and nightclubs will provide something new and exciting every day. From sipping cocktails along Sunset Strip, to foam parties, powder paint parties and non-stop dancing to world-class DJs at the superclubs; you’re guaranteed to have the time of your life.
After all the partying, you’ll be in much need of somewhere to indulge in relaxation and recuperation the next day. Luckily, San Antonio is blessed with some amazing beaches for you to do just that. Whether you head to San Antonio Bay or the smaller Calo des Moro Beach, you’ll find golden sands lined with inviting loungers, plus calm waters for you to paddle in or enjoy some water sports. These can sometimes get busy in the summer months, so there’s also the option to jump on the ferry to one of the other beaches on the west coast, such as the beautiful Cala Bassa Beach.
World famous sunsets
San Antonio boasts sunsets that rival all others in the world. No two are the same and people will find themselves revolving their plans around the sunset each day of their holiday, as it’s impossible to get bored of them. There are a number of great places to view them, such as one of San Antonio’s local beaches or ones that are just a short drive away, such as Cala Comte. But by far the most popular place to head is Sunset Strip. Get there early and pick the best spot at either Café del Mar, Café Mambo or Mint Lounge.

San Antonio Bay
San Antonio Bay is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful resorts on the island and is a popular destination for many travellers when booking Ibiza holidays. You’ll find it just south of the clubbers’ paradise that is San Antonio Town.
However, San Antonio Bay holidays are much quieter than other parts of the island; although access to the club scene is easy enough, if you want it. The resort tends to attract families and couples, looking to spend some quality downtime together away from the crowds and parties. Head down to the crescent-shaped beach and, towards the harbour, you’ll find an array of water sports on offer, from water-skiing, to splashing about on a banana boat!
If you want some seclusion, there are five beaches within walking distance of San Antonio’s golden sands. Cala Gracio is one of the best, with a gently-shelving shoreline, making it ideal for little ones who want to have a splash about in safe water. The focus is really on families and you’ll find child-friendly attractions, such as outdoor playground Acrobosc, within easy reach.
Things to do
With five stunning beaches to choose from, you can choose to top up your tan in peace and quiet, or throw yourself into a variety of exciting water sports on offer at San Antonio harbour. Each beach has its own distinct character, but they all have in common golden sands, crystal-clear waters and shady palm trees.
For shoppers, the harbour market is a treasure trove of trinkets and handmade goods. If you’re travelling with the family, spend a day on the rides, slides, flumes, and pools at the Aguamar Water Park. Romantic couples can enjoy a quiet wander on the waterfront to watch the sun go down or, if you’re feeling lively, get into the groove at one of the clubs in San Antonio Town.
The ideal location
Its position on Ibiza’s west coast has a lot of benefits that make it such a popular spot with all different types of holidaymakers. It’s a beach lover’s paradise, which is perfect for soaking up the warm Ibiza sun throughout the day and then watching the superb sunsets as evening falls. But if you’re after something a bit more upbeat, you have vibrant bars and clubs of San Antonio within easy walking distance. However, if you’re wanting to find out more about the island’s history and culture, Ibiza Town is just a short drive away in the opposite direction.
You may not realise it, but San Antonio Bay is actually made up of a number of different beaches and coves, each of them offering something unique and wonderful to all who visit their shores. Es Puet is perfect for paddling and fishing, S’Estanyol is great for water sports and barbecues and Port des Torrent is the place to be for snorkelling – to name but a few. Which will be your favourite?
Eating and drinking
A leisurely stroll along the picturesque promenade lining the bay will see you being spoilt for choice when it comes to finding somewhere to stop for food and drink. There are countless appealing bars, cafés and restaurants, all providing exceptional views across the bay. Take your pick from all the mouth-watering menus that are put out to tempt you and be sure to have found the best seat in time for sunset.

Santa Eulalia is Ibiza’s third largest resort, and an ideal destination for families and couples who want to enjoy a quiet, relaxing holiday without all the parties and revelry that the island is so famous for. If you’re looking for a beachside break, Santa Eulalia has spacious sands, which shelve gently into aquamarine waters, making it a superb spot for those holidaying with little ones.
Behind it, there’s a long, palm-fringed promenade, which is ideal for wandering along and then watching one of Ibiza’s spectacular sunsets, while enjoying a relaxing drink.
The promenade and waterfront have helped Santa Eulalia earn its reputation as Ibiza’s gastronomic headquarters, too. If you enjoy eating good food in relaxed surroundings, you’ll find that this destination boasts some of the best restaurants in Ibiza! With family attractions, excellent shopping and, of course, the glorious, golden beach, Santa Eulalia holidays are the fastest way to slow down.
Things to do
Holidays to Santa Eulalia (or Santa Eulária, if you prefer) centre around the family-friendly beaches and prom. Think, seafront bars, easy holiday shopping and beautiful sea views. When it comes to days out, a visit to Ibiza Town should be top of your list. The island capital's chilled out yet buzzing, and full of history, as well as some top nightlife spots. Ibiza's famous clubs are, of course, one of the main draws for anyone looking for fun on the 'White Isle', and while Santa Eulalia's one of the calmer resorts there are still some good options for a boogie. As well as checking out the Santa Eulalia nightlife, you could plan a big night out with the partygoers in San Antonio or Playa d'en Bossa.
When you holiday to Santa Eulalia, you’ll spend a lot of your time walking the promenade. Here you’ll find cafés that you can sit and enjoy a quick pit stop and shops that you can saunter round on your way to either of the beautiful beaches. Plus when you feel like resting for a moment, there’s a few shaded spots where you can get out of the heat for a bit and admire the views of the sea. Return here at the end of a long day on the beach and take an evening stroll or sit in one of the bars enjoying a drink as you watch the sunset.
Santa Eulalia has developed a reputation as being the gastronomic capital of Ibiza with its many different restaurants, whatever you fancy you’re bound to find it in Santa Eulalia. There are the cafés on the promenade and the fresh seafood restaurants by the marina, but Calle San Vicente is where all food lovers need to head.
The famed street, nicknamed Restaurant Street, is 200 metres long and whether you’re looking for anything from traditional Spanish tapas or French fine dining to a pizzeria or sushi restaurant, the chances are you’ll probably find it down this street. There’s a real fiesta atmosphere in the evenings and you’re invited to join in.
History and culture
For a visit rich in history and culture, Santa Eulalia is a great place to experience. There’s the Puig de Missa church where you can admire the beautiful whitewashed building as well as the surrounding panoramic view from the top of the hill. If you fancy travelling about 15 minutes by car to Ibiza Town, you’ll be greeted by stunning old buildings from the moment you arrive. The old town is the place to visit for a trip back to the past.
