Lovely 1 bed apartment 1km from Sunset strip and Cafe Mambo
Beautiful and well-located with easy access to two sheltered beaches, Cala Gracio and Cala Gracioneta (15 min walk from San An). Great views are to be had of the Mediterranean Sea, which rolls into the beaches on either side of the property.
This is a small and exclusive resort consists of 4 bungalows, which all share and overlook a large terrace and the sea. Another spacious terrace surrounds the pool, a great place to relax and soak up the rays. And when the temptation hits, there is the choice of sunning on one of the beaches, each 30 metres away.
Min. Stay: 3 nights
Each bungalow is a sizeable 377 square feet (35.02 m²), more than enough for two guests. The dwelling consists of a studio layout with double bed, lounge space, and en suite facilities. To make this more homely, the bungalow’s lounge area has a soft two-seater sofa and flat-screen television.
And a well-equipped kitchenette means that guests are not reliant on restaurants or takeaway food. But, being in such an idyllic climate, most guests end up eating on their private terrace. The terrace has enough space for friends to dine or to sit at with a glass of wine to watch the sun setting.
If you do decide to venture beyond this secluded paradise, you can start with the El Chiringuito restaurant situated on one of the beaches. This is a small island, and everything is close by. The popular town of Ibiza is a quick drive, where you find a busy nightlife and great restaurants.
A place to party, or have peace and quiet?
If Ibiza is not your scene, then Cala Gracio is less than 1-kilometre from San Antonio. San Antonio, the home of Sunset Strip, a wonderful harbour, and other interesting sites. This is a place to get away from it all or venture into the biggest parties you could ever see.
Not everyone wants a long walk to get to where the party is at. This is a spacious one-bedroom apartment. The living arrangements offer an excellent view of the boats visiting the island and overlooks the port.
The apartment has a master bedroom with a double bed and a small work area, complemented with a panoramic view of the sea. There is plenty of space for four to move around and storage to put away all your belongings. A two-person sofa will turn in to a futon for children if you need more beds.
Bedrooms: 1 plus lounge/dining room
Min. Stay: 1 night
An L-shape sofa is a great place to sit in the afternoon and watch a film or sit at the dining table with friends. Both the living space and bedroom have air conditioning, so you can retreat from those hot summer days in comfort.
Cooking is possible in the microwave, but the apartment sits on top of a huge choice of restaurants where can get takeaways. Towels are provided, as are a washing machine and dryer so that you can keep your luggage lightweight.

The property offers views of San Antonio’s port, which can be admired from the living area or from the apartment’s private balcony. The balcony is furnished with a garden table large enough to seat four.

Why rent an apartment in San Antonio?
The west-central coast of Ibiza is where you’ll find the resort town of San Antonio. As the island’s second-largest municipal area, San Antonio is a town with several unique neighbourhoods where the party scene is especially strong. If you are planning your first trip to San Antonio, think the West End and Sunset Strip as your clubbing destinations.
San Antonio has quite a reputation as Ibiza’s party capital. However, government and local officials have worked hard over the years to develop the city’s family appeal as well. It is not unusual for locals from all over the island to descend on the resort town on weekends to enjoy its fine selection of restaurants and family-related activities.
Clubs in San Antonio
You’re going to Ibiza specifically to party. If clubbing is your thing, San Antonio will not disappoint with its extensive choice of clubs and bars. We can recommend four great clubs in particular; two are in the Sunset Strip area while the other is in the West End:
• Eden Ibiza – This impressive super club has hosted a long list of big acts since the 1990s. It has an impressive VOID sound system and a large, open dance floor surrounded by an equally spacious balcony.
• Es Paradis – Competing directly with Eden Ibiza is Es Paradis, another super club directly across the way. This venue has been around since the 1970s. Es Paradis is famous for its water parties and the always exciting Glow Neon Paint Party.
• Ocean Beach – There wasn’t much by way of outdoor clubbing prior to the opening of Ocean Beach in 2012. Now Ocean Beach is the club to go to if you want to party outdoors in the glorious sunshine as you anticipate an incredible sunset. Ocean Beach is well known for its decadent pool parties, live performances, fashion shows, acrobatics, and massages.
• Ibiza Rocks – The Ibiza Rocks Hotel offers a monster clubbing experience featuring a purpose-built stage that now hosts most of the major music events in San Antonio. Everything takes place in a central courtyard that includes the hotel’s main swimming pool. The events here focus heavily on electronic music along with live DJs and We Are Rock Stars parties.
Best Bars in San Antonio
Whether you’re looking to start the evening with a quick drink at the bar or you just prefer a more low-key setting, San Antonio’s bar scene has plenty to offer. Most of the best bars in the city are found on the Sunset Strip. You can order your favourite drink and sit out on the beach to watch the sun go down. Some of the more popular bars in the city include:
• Café del Mar – This is one of San Antonio’s oldest and most loved bars. They have been in business for more than 30 years and are considered the original Sunset Strip bar.
• Café Mambo – If you are looking for great food to go along with your drinks, Café Mambo is one of the best. This Sunset Strip bar has won the ‘Best Bar in Ibiza’ award multiple times thanks to its great food and DJ music.
• Savannah – The Sunset Strip has its share of low-key bars, including the very popular Savannah. You’ll find Savannah to be a peaceful, tranquil environment with plenty of cushioned seating and a beautiful wooden terrace offering unbeatable views of the sunset. The theming here is unapologetically Mediterranean.
Other bar choices include Mint, Kanya, the Plastik Bar, Itaca, and Tulp. Each one offers its own vibe in a unique setting designed to cater to targeted clientele. If you are not sure where to go, the hotel staff can point you in the right direction.

Places to Eat
Dining in San Antonio is exceptional when compared to most of the other resort areas on the island. The city has gone to great lengths to invest in its dining scene in order to attract families and foodies along with the clubbers.
One of the favourites in town is known as Rincon de Pepe. It is a local icon famous for its selection of tapas choices. This restaurant is a must-visit if you want to experience authentic Spanish cuisine unspoilt by other European influences.
Tijuana Tex-Mex is a local favourite for Tex-Mex, barbeque, and Mexican beer. You might try the Bondi Restaurant for an interesting take on healthy cuisine featuring plenty of fresh, natural foods. The Bondi is quickly gaining a following in San Antonio.
Additional dining choices include Rio Ibiza (steak and seafood), Villa Mercedes Restaurant (Mediterranean-fusion), Surf Lounge Ibiza Restaurant (Mediterranean and Asian), and Sa Capella (Spanish and international cuisine).
There is no shortage of good places to eat in the West End and the Sunset Strip. But remember that San Antonio is the second largest town on the island. If you want to get away from the main tourist areas, there are plenty of smaller restaurants scattered across the town. They are where you’ll find local cuisine in an authentic local setting.
Getting to Airport
Ibiza airport is located in San Juan, roughly a 30-minute drive from San Antonio. Your three options for getting to and from the location are taxi, bus, and car rental. Taxis are the most reliable and least expensive. Buses are a bit hit and miss, so plan to wait if you want to use bus transportation. Car rental is available both in town and directly at the airport.
Getting to Playa d’en Bossa
Given that San Antonio is considered a stepping stone to the clubbing scene on Ibiza, you may want to take an evening and head down to Playa d’en Bossa on the south-east coast. Your best bet is by taxi or bus so that you’re not trying to drive back to San Antonio under the influence. Keep in mind that bus service is sketchy all across the island. If you do want to rent a car, you can get to Playa d’en Bossa in about half-an-hour.
