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.
