Kick start your San Antonio holiday on a magnificent golden beach, the perfect place to get started on your tan and splash around in the sea. The choice of water sports is excellent, from leisurely sailing to parasailing at crazy speeds or racing across the water on jet skis. Grab some food by the beach and head straight to the Sunset Strip to see the sun go down, which is when San Antonio 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 Gatecrasher.
San Antonio’s gorgeous beach is right in the centre of the resort, within easy walking distance from the hotels. Think soft, golden sand curved around the bright blue water, with a shallow shore that’s perfect for swimming. The beach is jam-packed with sun beds, umbrellas, showers and everything else you’ll need, plus a buzzing beachfront promenade with top bars and places to grab lunch or an ice cream. Outside the clubs, the beach is the best place in San Antonio for a wild time, with water skiing, windsurfing and banana boat rides to pick from.
There’s no doubt about it – most people come to Ibiza for the clubbing. San Antonio is one of the island’s nightlife capitals, with famous club and bar-hopping districts like the Sunset Strip pulling in the punters every summer. The sunsets here are as stunning as they say, and cocktails bars like Cafe del Mar are the best places in San Antonio to get things started. Keep an eye out for club promoters and pick from legendary clubs like Es Paradis for top nights like Hed Kandi. Don’t miss out on the boat parties – San Antonio’s harbour is a party boat hotspot.
If you’ve got the energy, there are lots of top activities in San Antonio away from the clubs. Give the party boats a rest and hire a motor boat, where you and your mates can chill out on the coast with a cool box full of food and beer. San Antonio is 10 minutes’ bus ride from Spain’s only “inflatable park”, Air Zone Ibiza. You might know it as zorbing – rolling around the park and across swimming pools in a huge inflatable orb. If that’s brought out the adrenaline junkie in you, hit the harbour for some parasailing, where five of you can soar 400 metres above the sea at once.
