Situated on the west coast, ten miles (16km) from the airport and the capital Ibiza, San Antonio is the largest and liveliest tourist resort on the island. Known as 'San An' to the thousands of British clubbers who descend here each summer, the resort's proper name is Sant Antoni de Portmany. Its long, wide bay is lined with bars, restaurants and apartment blocks catering mainly for young British tourists. There are a few small sandy beaches in the resort, and the spectacular beaches of Cala Conta, Cala Bassa and Cala Tarida are a short ferry ride away. July and August are the best months to visit for those looking for buzzing nightlife, while the months of May and June, and September and October are most popular with families, couples and older visitors.
