Transforming from a quiet fishing village into an international tourism hotspot over the last 30 years, San Antonio holidays have become a key part of the worldwide clubbing scene that has developed in Ibiza. A staple in the European music scene, this beautiful area boasts a sandy, man-made beach, palm tree promenades and, of course, world renowned nightclubs. San Antonio is definitely a hotspot for a lads' holiday, especially as its one of the biggest nightlife resorts on the island. San Antonio hosts the affectionately titled West End strip of bars; yet is also an ideal getaway for families and couples with plenty in store aside from clubbing. Although its clubbing is the most famous thing about San Antonio, its natural beauty is just as deserving, and you can very easily have a wonderful cheap holiday here with the family or even a romantic getaway without setting foot in a nightclub at all.
