What to do in San Antonio in August?
Unless you're an early riser, we’re giving up walks and bikes this month in favour of the many water sports and activities available in Portmany bay if you have an active and sporty spirit. However, we suggest you also explore inland by scooter, car or quad bike to discover the culture and Ibizan traditions in this municipality. And at night, San Antonio has masses of restaurants for all tastes, from the most romantic to the most adventurous seeking exotic bites.
Day plans in August
- Sailing alone with or without qualifications
August is perfect to hire a boat and enjoy the crystal-clear waters on the western coast of Ibiza If you've never sailed, don’t worry, because you can hire small motorboats that you can handle without a skipper qualification in Sant Antoni. If you’d rather go further out than the bay, you can hire a boat with skipper and explore the Ibizan coast on a sailing boat, a yacht or a super yacht. Lanchas Ibiza has the most suitable option for your day out on the water.
- Bullit de peix in Can Pujol
This restaurant on the other side of the bay is very popular among Ibiza’s locals who come to relish their delicious rice dishes, grilled fish and famous bullit de peix.

Paddle surf along the coast
