San Antonio Holidays
Fellow travellers say San Antonio is great for…
Favoured by British clubbers, package holidays in San Antonio largely revolve around the hedonistic nightlife on offer here. Located on the west coast of the Balearic island of Ibiza, it is the second largest town on the island, having developed quickly from its days as a fishing port back in the 1950s. Package holiday deals are snapped up by eager British youngsters keen to experience the legendary clubs that have been highly publicised through television programs like ‘Ibiza Uncovered.’ While the resort does cater for families and couples, on the whole it is a young crowd of singles that make up the majority of visitors to this party town.
While many people who stay in San Antonio spend their days by the hotel pool, on the edge of town there is a small beach to lounge away the days; more secluded coves are just a short ride away by water taxi. The town itself is a great place to explore, and you should visit “the Egg;” this local landmark celebrates the claim that the island was Christopher Columbus’ birthplace. The egg shaped statue contains a model of his famous ship, the Santa Maria. Sunset Strip is an area to visit in the evening, and is where everyone heads to enjoy a cocktail at Café del Mar to watch the sunset. The West End is where much of the action takes place after dark, with streets jam packed full of bars.
If you are looking to get more variety from your holidays in San Antonio, you could take the option of a weekend trip to Barcelona or Palma de Majorca using a dedicated ferry service that operates out of San Antonio. Another option would be to explore the surrounding countryside of the municipality of Sant Antoni de Portmany.
