San Antonio Bay is widely recognised as one of Ibiza’s most beautiful resorts. 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 warmest weather is between June and August and cooler during the spring months.
Flights to San Antonio Bay land at Ibiza Airport (IBZ), which is about 23km from the resort.
