S'Arenal de San Antonio, West Ibiza

Urban beach, perfect for families due to the clear shallow water

featured in Beaches Updated

This is the main beach in San Antonio, 500m long with lots of soft golden sand.

Being San Antonio, the area is built up, but the beach is pretty wide so doesn't get unbearably rammed in the summer. If you're staying in San Antonio then this is an obvious choice, however there are plenty of smaller beaches not far away if you are looking for something a little more authentic.

Great family location as the waters are clean, clear and shallow, so safe for children. There are sun loungers and umbrellas plus plenty of watersports on offer.

If you are staying outside of the town then a visit to this beach is perfect if you are looking for a location where you can sunbathe within easy reach of bars and restaurants...oh, and maybe a little shopping too. The promenade is just behind brimming with restaurants, bars and cafés.

Beach Bars & Beachclubs in Ibiza

Restaurants and bars line this beach from end to end as well as small supermarkets and shops enabling you to break up your beach day with some souvenir shopping, a beach picnic, lunch or cocktails in one of the many bars.

You’ll find anything from KFC to Brit pub fry-ups to classy beach lounges and hippy venues take your pick as you wander along the waterfront.

Water Safety & Clarity

The water is clear and blue and has a sandy seabed along most of the water line, getting a little weedy out deeper, but mostly sandy and with a gradual incline all the way out.

The long beach has two life guard stations that are manned June through to September, showers and toilets, as well as disabled facilities available at regular intervals along the beach.

Beach Quality

It’s a long sandy beach, which is wide enough that people can spread out a little – until peak season at least.

Watersports Nearby

Sun loungers and parasols are available for rent as well as enough kayaks, paddleboards, and pedal boats to keep you occupied all day long.

At the far end of the beach there are shelves of rock leading down to the sea, here you can find a few rock pools and a good snorkelling zone.
