Guide To San Antonio Bay Ibiza
Due to a recent post we put out on our social media channels we have realised that there is a lot of love out there for San Antonio Bay….
Our post was just a simple 2 min video driving along the bay road on the 7th of April – the height of Spanish lockdown. It comes at a time of the season when the island is preparing for a busy summer and starting to spring into life. It came as shock to many to see the usually bustling holiday resort with empty streets.
Wanting this to be a positive post we thought a detailed blog/guide to San Antonio Bay including details about our Villas, Bars, Restaurants, Hotels and shops would be welcomed 🙂
Tourism will resume at some point and so we hope this guide will help – If we have missed your favourite place out then please let us know.
Here is part one – Beaches, Villas, Hotels & Apartments please also check out our guide to Bars & Restaurants in San Antonio Bay
Guide To San Antonio Bay – Overview
San Antonio Bay is a “U” shaped bay stretching out over 4kms and directly facing the town of San Antonio. Only a 25 mins ride from the airport and you can find yourself in one of the most tourist friendly areas of Ibiza.
Truly a resort for everyone, there is no better mix of quality accommodation, fun pubs with live shows, karaoke and disco bars, crazy golf courses, children’s fun parks and amusement arcades, shops, restaurants and cafes serving all cuisines (from the British breakfast to the Paella).
In recent years major investment has been made with the total renovation of many hotels. Plans are also in place to extend the paseo / promenade along the bay to Port des Torrent. Further reading on this comes from our friends at The Ibizan – SuperBay Paseo
We are going to start at O beach and work our way along the bay (the official start of the bay is just after the hotel Hawaii)
Guide To San Antonio Bay – Beaches
Scattered along San Antonio Bay you can find four main beaches, with several smaller coves hugging the coastline and waiting to be explored. All of these beaches have regular water taxis across to San Antonio and a variety of the usual watersports. It is relatively easy to walk between all of these beaches. The walk is mostly along the coast but for some parts you will need to briefly walk along the path.
Alongside the hotel Hawaii. Golden sand with amenities close by including the fantastic Es Pouet beach shack.
A thin strip of sand situated in front of the Hotel S’estanyol. For more space also check out the slightly wider stretch of sand in front of Sa Flama restaurant.
Playa Pinet – Another stretch of golden sand and gently sloping waters making it a popular family beach. Also known and Reggae Reggae beach due to the popular beach shack/restaurant that lives here.
Playa Xinxo – Situated in front of the Hotel Playa Bella and Hotel Amare. A Sandy beach that faces inland providing gentle and calm waters. Surrounded by amenities and great transport links.
Port des Torrent Beach – not officially in San Antonio but only a 10 mins stroll form the end of the bay road. Certainly worth a walk as the beach here is a stunner.
