Famed through the European traveller community for its silken sand and azure waters, the vibrant resort of Bahia de San Antonio allures thousands of tourist seeking sun and serenity. Sunsets are a nightly spectacle upon this beautiful bay, which bursts to life at night with energetic bars and nightclubs. Delightful daytime activities such as hiking and water sports can also be enjoyed if you’re willing to drag yourself away from the soft, sandy shores of the bay’s beaches.
The bay’s most popular beach is irrefutably S’Arenal de San Antonio due to its curving coastal splendour; soft white sand seeps into the azure ocean, which proves a perfect place to enjoy sailing, water skiing and other invigorating water sports. Saunter down the beach in order to enjoy the diverse marine life housed in the Aquarium Cap Blanc; hundreds of species coexist in the saltwater tanks and afford visitors colourful vistas. When the sun begin to sink into the glittering ocean, ensure you’re on the Calo des Moro, also known as the Sunset Strip due to the incredible vantage points offered from the refined restaurants and bars that decorate the promenade.
In order to escape the tourist atmosphere of the town and discover some genuine Spanish culture, venture to the small village of Sant Rafael de Sa Creu to visit the Potter’s Studios. Here, the exceptionally skilled craftspeople explain the pottery processes and exceptional examples of the pottery are on display.
The iconic and enticing Rincon de Pepe tapas bar has become a San Antonian icon due to its true taste of Spain. Dine in the rustic interior or upon the picturesque, street side patio to enjoy some of the most authentic and arresting flavours imaginable. Sizzling chorizo swimming in rich red wine and crispy calamari are just a selection of the divine dishes that will pleasure your palate during a visit here.
