Did you know?
The San Antoni bay has changed a lot in the last few decades. In the 1930s, two Ibizencan entrepreneurs built the first two hotels namely Portmany Hotel and Ses Savines Hotel which are still both open up to date. A few years after, a family of exiled German Jews erected the third hotel and many other hotels were built in the area.
The view has radically changed too. What you see now is the sporty port of Sant Antoni and the many buildings that started to rise over the years; at the time, there was only the church, the three hotels and a few houses.
What to see:
If you walk along Sant Agusti Avenue going to San Antonio Bay, you will see many shops, bars with DJs and restaurants with terraces with amazing views.

For drinks, the Global Reggae Bar is a perfect place to have a tropical cocktail relaxing on a hammock. The cocktails on the menu at Sol House Hotel are fun! Moreover, the view from the swimming pool is majestic!
If you are looking for silence, tranquility and a private space for your holidays, we recommend the beaches in the north of the island. Try to avoid Sant Antoni Bay, as it is a very touristy area most especially in the summer.
