Sant Antoni de Portmany
Sant Antoni de Portmany is one of the most popular resorts among European tourists on account of its stunning bay and the spectacular sunsets on the Ses Variades coast line. Tourism has completely transformed this town, whose inhabitants used to depend on farming, fishing and ancient traditions only a century ago. Nowadays, Sant Antoni offers a wide range of hotels, hostels and apartments, among other services for tourists.
Next to the sea-side promenade, you will find the Passeig de ses Fonts, Sant Antoni’s centre. The Town Hall, Tourist Office, pavement cafes and taxi rank are to be found along its length. It is also possible to enjoy the occasional outdoor concerts held in this area. If you follow the Passeig de ses Fonts, it will lead you to the town with its streets full of shops, bars and restaurants.
Many tourists tend to congregate to sunbathe or swim at the beaches in the bay of Sant Antoni, even if there are other singularly beautiful beaches in the area such as Cala Gracio and Cala Gracioneta, two exquisite little bays joined up by a tiny rock causeway, situated 2,5 kilometres from the centre of Sant Antoni. Cala Salada is very nice and suitable for families and then there is the option of Punta Galera for the more adventurous, a rocky area that has become one of the favoured spots for fans of nude sunbathing.
