We know that the hammock of the pool is the best, but beyond the hotel there are numerous water sports and beach activities in Ibiza. Put down your mobile, stop giving hearts to what others do and make the most of the most animated island in the Mediterranean. Because the most active holidays in Ibiza, the more you enjoy yourself. It’s summer, do you feel it?
Is Ibiza a good destination for water sports?
The pleasant temperatures of Ibiza make it an ideal destination for water sports and baeach activities throughout the summer, including the months of May and October. The average sea temperature reaches 20 º in May, 22 º in June and October, 25 º in July and September, and 26 º in August.
These pleasant temperatures favour water sports in Ibiza, especially in the Bay of San Antonio, which is sheltered from the easterly winds, which are the predominant during this season. And if we add to this the transparency and safety of its beaches and coves, we already have enough reasons to get up from the towel and put a little water action on our vacations on Isla Blanca.
The San Antonio Bay: the best base for water activities in Ibiza
When the Romans arrived in Ibiza they baptized San Antonio Bay as Portus Magnus due to its size and its importance as a strategic enclave. Today, the bay is still one of the biggest attractions of San Antonio for its wide range of water sports and beach activities, which includes proposals for both calm travellers and those seeking high doses of adrenaline.
