Welcome to San Antonio

San Antonio

Situated on the west coast, ten miles (16km) from the airport and the capital Ibiza, San Antonio is the largest and liveliest holiday resort on the island. Known as 'San An' to the thousands of clubbers who descend here each summer, the resort's proper name is Sant Antoni de Portmany. San Antonio's wide bay is lined with bars, restaurants and apartment blocks catering mainly to young holidaymakers who are here for the party scene. There are a few small sandy beaches in the resort, and the spectacular beaches of Cala Conta, Cala Bassa and Cala Tarida are a short ferry ride away. July and August are the best months to visit for those looking to experience the vibrant nightlife in San An, while the months of May and June, and September and October are very popular with families, couples and older visitors.
