-Beaches. Along the waterfront of the centre of San Antonio is S’Arenal de San Antonio, which is half a kilometre in length and fifty metres wide, offering fine sand and clean, shallow waters. Towards the north of the town is Calo des Moro, a small beach with a trendy atmosphere as it’s connected to San Antonio’s Sunset Strip.
-Nightlife. San Antonio is renowned for its bars and nightclubs, from the Sunset Strip, where people gather to listen to DJ sets and watch the sun go down, to the raucous West End area, with its high concentration of raucous bars and clubs. On the bay’s waterfront there are plenty of quieter bars and restaurants with lovely sea views.
-Watersports. On S’Arenal de San Antonio you can enjoy a variety of water-based fun. Here you could go water-skiing, parasailing, jet-skiing, or simply hire a pedalo for a few hours. The warm, clear waters off the coast here are also great for scuba diving, with two dive centres to be found in the town offering a range of trips.
-Rural Ibiza. Within easy reach of San Antonio you’ll encounter a landscape ideal for exploring either on foot or by bike. There are companies on the island organising guided bike tours, taking in some beautiful sights, including picturesque farms, rugged upland scenery and secluded coves. Horseback trips are also arranged.
-Ibiza Town. For a taste of the island’s history, Ibiza Town is no more than 15 minutes in the car, and is home to a beautifully preserved old town, still protected by its original walls. A highlight here is the 13th Century Ibiza Cathedral, which houses a number of beautiful works of art from the Renaissance era.
San Antonio gets a Mediterranean climate, and this makes for consistently warm and dry weather during the summer months. By around the middle of May there are temperatures reaching the mid-20s, and daily highs gradually increase and peak above 30 degrees in late-July and early-August. There’s plenty of warmth until as late as the end of October. Spring weather is usually clear and sunny, while winter and autumn conditions are just a little damper. Highs in January usually peak just above 10 degrees.
San Antonio is small enough that most visitors will have little trouble navigating the town on foot. It sits around half an hour to the northwest of Ibiza Airport (IBZ), which has links via flag carriers and low-cost airlines to a host of cities around the Spanish mainland and Europe. Many visitors take a taxi from the airport straight to their apartment in San Antonio, but there is also a far more affordable bus service running every 30 minutes. Another way to reach the town is by ferry from the Spanish mainland, with services from Valencia, Denia and Barcelona.
