Whether you want to spend your vacation soaking up the sun on beautiful beaches or dancing until the sun rises, San Antonio is the place for you. Here are five of the best things to do in San Antonio, Ibiza.
Where to Stay in San Antonio

The affordable adults-only hotel is located steps from the beach and has a sparkling pool encircled by lounges.

5 Things To Do in San Antonio
See the sunset from the Sunset Strip
The Sunset Strip is a famous beachfront promenade located about a 10-minute walk from the heart of San Antonio. As the name suggests, it’s THE place to watch the sunset in Ibiza. There are lots of lively bars and restaurants along the beachfront that host live music and DJs nightly, so you can enjoy your sunset with a cocktail in hand. Two of the most legendary options are Café Mambo (they do great burgers) and Café del Mar.
Take to the water
First, here’s a lowdown on the area’s beautiful beaches. S’Arenal Beach is the town’s main beach, with golden shores stretching far and wide (literally). There are five other smaller cove beaches along the coastline near San Antonio, but Cala des Moro is one of the best. Furthermore, a 45-minute walk from Invisa Es Pla is Punta Galera, a cove with rock platforms that’s a popular local cliff jumping spot. It’s also a great spot to watch the sunset and snorkel in crystal clear water.
From S’Arenal Beach, you can enjoy a variety of watersports, like jet-skiing, banana boat rides, parasailing, kayaking, scuba diving and kite-surfing. If you want to get your heart racing, thrillseekers should head directly to Twister Jet, a jetboat ride through San Antonio Bay. Alternatively, try fly-boarding for something different.
Another seafaring adventure is hopping aboard a boat trip from San Antonio. This affordable Ibiza boat cruise takes you up the north coast for the day. See the stunning coastline, snorkel in the Mediterranean Sea or simply float the day away.
Dance the night away
Ibiza is internationally renowned for its unparalleled nightlife scene. Fortunately, San Antonio is home to everything from jazz bars to the world’s best nightclubs. Top recommendations include Eden, Plastik Ibiza, Club Hush, which hosts some of the island’s best DJs, and Ibiza Rocks for live music. But the most popular nightclub is the internationally renowned Es Paradis. Hosting Fiesta Del Agua water parties every Saturday night, it’s an event that should be on every San Antonio bucket list.
Head on an Ibiza adventure
Now, you can easily spend your entire holiday soaking up the sunshine in San Antonio. However, there are many other Ibiza adventures waiting for you. First, Ibiza Town is only a short drive away. It’s home to a historic Old Town, unspoilt panoramic hilltop vistas and shopping boutiques.
Another option is to hire a bike. You can either ride around to San Antonio’s beautiful bay or journey inland to the rolling local hills Ibiza is known for. You can also opt to go on a quad bike or buggy sightseeing tour.
Eat a feast in San Antonio
San Antonio is not shy of a few amazing restaurants to dine at while staying in the area. When you’re craving something healthy, head to Bondi Restaurant. When you want fine dining with a view, visit Villa Mercedes Restaurant or enjoy Michelin-Star Mediterranean cuisine at Es Tragon. If you want to indulge in tapas, visit El Rincón de Pepe. Finally, Kumharas Ibiza is one of the island’s best restaurants and just so happens to be known for its sunset views. Enjoy the mouthwatering menu with a side of live flamenco and fire dancing.
As you can see, there are so many wonderful things to do in San Antonio, Ibiza. Which adventure will you choose? (I say ALL of them).
