Our Favourite Restaurant Tapas Ibiza San Antonio

Tapas Ibiza San Antonio

Tapas Ibiza San Antonio

Located within walking distance of San Antonio’s main beach, Tapas Ibiza is set away from the promenade down a rather dark and slightly imposing road (behind Linekers Bar) which takes you to another world of San Antonio.

Radio 1 celebrated 20 years of broadcasting from the white isle this year with many different events across the island. Most are being held in purpose built venues suitable for large crowds with all the facilities in place such as sufficient security, toilets, medical provisions,etc.
