San Antonio in Ibiza is a beautiful seaside town with a pretty harbour and a wide sandy beach. That said, this little town is now not only a stunning resort for sun seeking holidaymakers, but a place where those in search of the island’s clubbing scene come in their droves. Indeed there is a huge range of bars, clubs and restaurants in the resort, many of which are situated right on the water’s edge. Gatecrasher Ibiza, Es Paradois and Ocean Beach Club are among the most famous but if you want to be spoilt for choice head to the Sunset Strip, one of the most well known areas for nightlife in Ibiza. Aptly named because of the wonderful sunsets that appear almost superimposed against the brilliant deep blue of the sea, the Sunset Strip is a haven for world class DJs and serious clubbers.
Here we outline some of the clubs to go to when looking for fun in the sun in San Antonio.
The Key To a Great Time in San Antonio
This club has only recently opened and has already developed a reputation for themed nights and hosting parties frequented by the beautifully bronzed and well dressed. Based just outside San Antonio, away from the main crowds, it is the location that is the key to the club’s intimate style. Fancy cocktails and resident DJs are the name of the game here but you can also enjoy a swim in the stunning pool, champagne on ice and a selection of eclectic food.
This bar is somewhat unusual in that it is a Welsh bar! Right at the far end of the West End in the ultimate clubbing district of San Antonio, this bar has a great atmosphere, very welcoming staff and a DJ like no other. If you are into watching sports when you are away on holiday, the big screens here offer the ideal opportunity.
This is a real party venue with a varied mix of music from every decade since the 50s. With the emphasis on dance dance dance, you could find yourself losing track of time and seeing in the early morning at this fantastic club.
A typical English run bar right in the centre of the West End, this bar is known as one of the cheapest. With a great range of Spanish and English beers, great cocktails and a variety of shots, this place is justly popular among locals and tourists alike.
Home to the well known Radio 1 weekend, this bar, located on the famous Sunset Strip, is the place to go if you enjoy watching the sun go down over a cocktail or two. Hosting big names in the DJ world, Café Mambo definitely has a party atmosphere.
