Beaches and coves of San Antonio
The beaches of Sant Antoni de Portmany and Sant Antonio, stretching to the West of the island. About fifteen kilometers from Ibiza, this small town as municipality has an extension of one hundred and twenty-six square kilometers. It has the nearest port to the peninsula, in particular with the town of Denia, from where you can catch a boat on a short and quick journey. The port has sports facilities from which we can practice various water sports.
In Sant Antoni we can clearly differentiate between beaches used by casual tourists and residents of the municipality and the beaches more typically tourists, mainly frequented by English and quite young tourism. In this regard note that the area called West of Sant Antoni, is characterized by a fairly crazy nights, from the spree to the mess in a matter of minutes. If you are not accustomed to these environments, or accompanied by minors, we recommend to not visit these areas late at night.
Within the San Antonio beaches are some of the best beaches and coves of Ibiza.

Beaches of San Antonio
You find the main beaches of San Antonio, some really spectacular.
The beach of S’Arenal is located next to the port and is an extension of the promenade of the city. If during the day it is a swimming area, the evening becomes a musical Beach with enough nightlife.
Es Pouet Beach is an extension of the Bay of San Antonio, close to the Centre of the town. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxed and is situated in a very touristy area with several shops in the surrounding area.
If there is a Creek recognized internationally for their music and festivities in the evening, and for the price of a drink, that is Calo des Moro. Although the atmosphere is purely English during the day, the afternoon people often gather next to Café del Mar to celebrate the event.
Cala Gracio is one of the favorite beaches of San Antonio residents. Although separated from the Center a good walk, the truth is that the Creek is very quiet, perfect to go with children and very well sheltered.
Cala Gracioneta is a small replica of Cala Gracio. To tell the truth, they are practically twin. It can be that the only difference find it in this beach tends to be less full than the previous.
