A more sedate way to navigate local waters is by Stand-Up Paddle or SUP. Sup Paradise Ibiza offers a range of trips to suit all tastes.


Boat Trips


San Antonio’s magnificent harbour is the starting point for a wide range of boat trips and ferries to many of the best beaches on the west coast of Ibiza as well as the beautiful island of Formentera - with its amazing crystalline waters - and the legendary islet of Es Vedrà. Check out our guide of the best ones.

San Antonio is also well known as the starting point for some of the island’s best boat parties, which run throughout the summer. 

Alternatively you might prefer chartering your own sailboat with a group of friends or family up to 11 people. Capitan Norbert on Jay Ibiza will make sure you have a fabulous time and will take you to hidden coves and dream places. Drinks and snacks, as well as plenty of swimming, snorkel and paddle surf opportunities will make this an unforgettable day.

Mixing history with anecdotes and legends, the experienced guides – who offer tours in a range of languages – will enable you to get to know the town while recommending some of its finest bars and restaurants.


Spas and Yoga


With all this activity, you may appreciate some pampering. Fortunately, San Antonio has several great options if that’s the case. Located in the heart of the port, Terysol Massage offers a wide variety of therapeutic massage techniques.

Another amazing spa is located in Stic Urban Hotel close to the Sunset Strip. It has a full range of treatments and superb facilities. Amáre Ibiza, situated in Cala de Bou, also has outstanding spa facilities.

Yoga fans will be pleased to hear that San Antonio has them covered. If you enjoy practising early in the day, then the early morning sessions at Kumharas and Hostal La Torre are ideal.

Just around the corner is the five-star Amàre Hotel. Like all premium hotels, Amàre places a huge emphasis on guests' relaxation and recuperation. Its on-site Wellness centre in Ibiza by Germaine Capuccini provides body and facial treatments using only the finest products and is available to both residents and day guests.


Great for kids


For a truly educational boat trip that all the family will love, Meet the Sea offers an exciting nautical adventure with plenty of activities to discover and learn about marine life.

Alternatively, if you seek a nice stroll and are curious to learn about the native marine fauna then head over to Cap Blanc Aquarium, located a kilometre or so to the north of the resort. You can reach it via a pedestrian path from Caló des Moro, or by the boat that leaves from the port of San Antonio. There you can see brightly coloured fish, octopuses, rays and other marine creatures in their natural underwater habitat. The aquarium has a café with a terrace that serves snacks and drinks, and it’s a great spot to chill out and enjoy the views. Educational and entertaining, it's a fantastic experience for the whole family.

Located in Port des Torrent, Sirenis Aquagames has fantastic facilities for youngsters to spend an ecstatic day splashing about and if it's a playpark you're looking for, read our lowdown on the in- and outdoor playgrounds on Ibiza.

Part of San Antonio's iconic skyline, and fun for older teenagers and big kids alike, is the hair-raising Sling Shot Ibiza. Dare-devil riders are propelled at high speed from wire towers at this seaside location, providing death-defying views across the whole municipality - and such a thrill!

The adjacent funfair also offers waltzers, bumper cars and an array of late-night fast food options in the neon-lit vicinity.

On the outskirts of San Antonio is one of the island's popular Go Kart tracks. With a wide range of karts, from Twins for really small passengers, to top-of-the-range 400cc Racing, there is something for all levels and experience for the whole family to enjoy.

And while we're on the subject of the family, holidaymakers will appreciate the service provided by Mima Childcare Ibiza and Formentera, childcare experts who offer professional baby and child-sitting services for when you need some downtime.
