Sant Rafel holidays not only offer buzzing nightlife and historic charm, but also great links to Ibiza Town and San Antonio.
Best of both worlds
Sant Rafel's located in Ibiza in the Balaeric Islands
off the eastern coast of Spain
. It has one foot in the club action of San Antonio and another in the culture of Ibiza Town. For dining close to home, choose from Italian to French fusion restaurants, many with vegetarian or vegan offerings.
In addition to its impressive nightlife, Ibiza
has a thriving artist community. On Saturdays, tune in to your inner hippie at the market just outside San Carlos to snag some groovy clothes or jewellery. It's a 25-minute drive from Sant Rafel. For another far-out experience, join the UFO seekers at the uninhabited island Es Vedra.
A half-hour's drive from Sant Rafel lies the charming sandy cove of Cala Saladeta. Here, you'll find translucent waters and outstanding views from a cliff. For a closer beach, Playa d’en Bossa, just 15-minutes away, is Ibiza's longest beach and is a watersport hotspot with paddle-boarding, jet-skiing and kitesurfing.
Further afield, San Antonio's got an aquarium set within caves. Follow the winding boardwalk separating you from the sea life underneath. Alternatively, head to chilled Ibiza Town – 10 minutes' drive away – where Medieval walls, cobbled streets and a historic cathedral slow the pace.
