The waters are clean and shallow, so safe for children, and great for messing about in the water.

If you're young and trendy grab a sunlounger outside one of the fashionable bars (Bar M, Attica etc), found along the promenade close to San Antonio, and soak up the atmosphere and music. You'll easily find all types of hotels and apartments within a few minutes of these beaches.

There are excellent watersports facilities and boat trips can be caught to other beaches from the nearby Harbour.

Facilities: Fabulous selection of bars and restaurants along the length of the promenade - you'll be spoiled for choice! Also a small supermarket, two takeaway places; Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken and an ice cream parlour.
