5 things to do in San Antonio and its surroundings

- The sunset: you can enjoy the sunset from the breakwaters, from any café in Ses Variades, at the promenade; from Sa Punta des Molí and from Hostal La Torre’s terrace in Cap Negret.
- A loooooong swim at Cala Saladeta: the clear waters and sandy sea bottoms of this neighbour beach to Cala Salada make it seem like a true natural pool. If you happen to get hungry, we recommend you try the mussels from its beach bar-restaurant.
- The Nits Amples d’Estiu’s music: this event also takes place in September near San Antonio’s church and it will be hosting performances by San Antonio’s Band (1st September); Konga, an afro-latin band (8th September) and Solpost band (15th August).
