San Antonio is known for its great yacht port, where nota bene begins the famous promenade set by the palms, running all the way to the city centre.

On the other hand, we can go to the largest suburban beaches, including the largest and most popular S’Arenal. This, as well as other beaches, form the famous Ibiza Sunset Strip, which is the westernmost part of the city, which consists of a strip of the beaches with the purest sand (eg Calo des Moro, Cala Gracio, Cala Gracioneta) and a long line of bars, cafés and nightclubs.
