THE MAIN BEACH STRIP IN SAN ANTONIO, IBIZA
S’Arenal is a long, wide beach of fine, white sand opposite the busy promenade. Due to its easy access and central location, this beach is always a top choice, but never too overcrowded. Shallow, safe waters make it a great place for young children. However, it must be noted that this strip, especially in the height of summer, is largely consumed with young adults often spilling out from the many bars directly in front. So, if you’re with young children it may be best to consider San Antonio Bay with its several smaller sandy beaches.
