Of course the most popular thing to do in San Antonio is to visit the Sunset strip and watch the spectacular sunset from there. You have two options, find a spot along the beach and enjoy it for free or choose a good seat at one of the famous café/bars and do it in luxury (have in mind that they will overcharge you even for a bottle of water).Most...more
Ugly architecture, numerous hotels and apartments, lots of people looking for party all night long, this isn’t the most attractive town of course. Most people that live here I guess they take advantage of the tourist boom and they money they get but they also complain about some misery the cheap tourist packages brought (british hooligans during...more
This is the main church of San Antonio. It was constructed during 14th century in a strange style, typical Ibicenco defensive architecture, actually it is a fortified church that was the centre of the village life, obviously to protect the people from threads like a pirate attack so not just a place for prayer but a shelter for the inhabitants of...more

The main reason to visit San Antonio was to check the sunset. No surprise there is a raw of café/pub along the west coast where you have your expensive drink while lounge music is playing at the background. They are famous for their cd compilations with the same name.We preferred to stay at the popular Café del Mar because we found a nice table...more
After visiting San Antonio church we noticed this small place selling ice cream. Although miday it was one of the few places that was busy so there was no wonder if it was popular.They have a nice collection of tastes, a huge cone with two balls of ice cream costs 3,90 euro.We also tried an iced coffee (2,8e or 3e with icecream) which was just ok....more

Who has not heard about the famous Cafe del Mar?After hearing the whole collection of Stace's Cafe del mar CD's this was our start point for a good Friday night.The atmosphere is unique, and here you can get ideas for the summer fashion LOLSit at the terrace if you want to watch the people, but if you want to see the people playing with the fire...more
We visited Caf? Mambo the day of the inauguration party of Pacha, and the dj?s where playing there before going to the club, so the music was great!As it was the pre-party also lots of people where offering discount tickets to PACHA for ONLY 40 euros (crazy prices)The atmosphere is unique, and here you can get ideas for the summer fashion LOLDid I...more
On the other side is this sunset bar, completely different. I loved the style and decoration.They are growing fast as they had been open for 4 or 5 years and they do often lots of improvements.They had also a little market and a good Thai restaurant, or at least that what the friend of Francis that works there, says ý.. I do not know the food, but...more
maybe is not what you expect of Ibiza, but Pepe and Samuel welcomed Stace as Old client and friend, so we had to stop by sure. We founded the prices much reasonable that in other tourist spots, and even if decoration was not my style, the atmosphere can vary a lot depending of the kind of clients.One day was all retired Germans, and the next day...more
This was our last stop and my favorite one. The decoration was really nice and the terraces much bigger.The atmosphere is unique, and here you can get ideas for the summer fashion LOLDid I mention the ridiculous prices for drinks? When you go there, do not expect to pay less than 8 Euros per drink ? just crazy.more
San Antonio is located 15km west of Eivissa(Ibiza).
It was easy to drive there, we just took C-731 highway that leads to San Antonio.
Several bus lines start from S.Antoni. Lines #3, #8 are the ones that connect S.Antoni with Eivissa (2 buses per hour), lines #9 and #10 with the airport. There are also some lines for the beaches:Line #4(Cala Compte), Line #5(Cala Tarida), Line #7(Cala Bassa)
During summer months there is boat connection with various beaches (Cala Bassa, Port des Torrent Bay, Cala Salada, Cala Compte etc) and some days a ferry to Fromentera. There are also small cruise tours, glass bottomed tours etc We didn’t try any but we noticed leaflets about them everywhere.
How to move around
We just walked around easily, we noticed many taxis but you wont need any. If you want to try something alternative check pic 4, a great way to see the sunset :)

The best ever 15 Euros spent …. The trip from San Antonio to Es vedra island deserved that amount by sure. You can go by car to visit each of the beaches and Calas, but the views from the sea are more spectacular.The staff is very friendly and you will have a good timeCaptain Nemo boat with a glass bottommore
We were trying to decide where to go for a lunch, when we got the publicity of a restaurant in our car.We were hungry and we were not in mood of the food at the Conte beach restaurants as we saw most of the people left the food in the plates, so we headed there (I believe in destiny, as there is a reason for everything).From the restaurant we got...more
this is my favourite beach. It was the first one I saw, and I was shock with its beauty.All the different blues in one, so clean ….There are no words to express it.. I just said to my friends (typical Spanish joke) why we where looking for Curro at the Caribe when we had this islands…. (there was travel company agency looking for Curro in all the...more
Favorite thing: We start our walking tour from the bus station at the Passeig de la Mar. Buses leave the station for Ibiza Town every half-hour, four times daily to Santa Eul?ria and frequently to the southwest calas Vedella, Conta and Tarida. From the bas station walk eastwards along quay with Ferry Terminal and Marina full of yachts and boats on your left. There are some good caf?s and restaurants in the area. In a few minutes you reach wide green boulevard Passeig de ses Fonts, which greets you with a Fisherman Monument (small artistic value) and lovely fountains. At the point where the boulevard meets Avenida de Portmany, you will see the Sant Antoni?s landmark ? the Egg. Small tourist information office is in the end of boulevard, just across the street from the monument (Mon?Fri 9.30am?8.30pm, Sat & Sun 9.30am?1pm). Turn left and walk up along the narrow street of the West End. Ten minutes later on the top of the hill you will find whitewashed Sant Antoni Church (14th century). Leaving church on your left, continue to walk 100 yards or so and you will find second Fisherman monument (not much better than the first one). Turn left here and on the small Calla (lane) you will find an Internet caf? with unbelievably good rates (?1.5 for 30 min. or ? 2 for 1 hour). Continue to walk westwards, then turn left at Calle de La Mar which brings you down to the seafront - Passeig de ses Fonts. Retreat your steps to the Egg and continue your tour along Avda Dr Flemming which runs along the central beach. You will see plenty of caf?s, restaurants and shops here. Two famous San An clubs: Es Paradis and Eden are nearby, just off Avgda. Dr. Fleming. Both clubs are open May?October with entrance around ?24?33, and they book big-name DJs.
