Ibiza Sunset Strip August 2015

Several institutions such as Cafe Mambo, Cafe Del Mar and Savannah are the place to go and watch the sun go down. Crowds flock to the bars, the beach and any available spot to watch the sun fall out of sight. Newer locations such as Kanya and Funky Buddah are also beginning to benefit from the trade Ibiza’s beautiful sunsets bring a little bit further around the bay.

San Antonio (also Sant Antoni) is the second largest town in Ibiza, and is considered by British clubbers to be the clubbing capital of the world. It is situated on San Antonio Bay, on the west of Ibiza.

For two thousand years, San Antonio was a small fishing village, but it began to grow in the late 1950s when many hotels and tourist resorts were built as part of a mass tourism initiative which took place across Spain.

By the 1980s, San Antonio had acquired the stigma of being the holiday location of choice for British football hooligans, which lead to a decline in tourism in the area. However, it regained its popularity in the mid 1990s when it gained a reputation in Britain as being the best place to stay whilst having access to all the islands night clubs, often quoted as the best in the world as well as hosting the best DJs in the world.

Young British clubbers make up the vast majority of visitors to the area, but the laid-back vibe between locals, workers and tourists is apparent throughout the island.
