Sant Antoni de Portmany, on the west coast of Ibiza, is a privileged region for combining tourism with sport in exceptional scenery, enjoying top installations and competitions.
The town of Sant Antoni contains a concentration of a wide range of hotels and installations for practising any sports modality, for example the Can Coix sports complex, the Sant Antoni municipal football field or the Club Nàutic Sant Antoni. It is set around a spectacular bay which hosts sailing competitions all year round, such as the legendary Ruta de la Sal regatta, the Ibiza Regatta or the Cartagena-Ibiza regatta for ORC vessels, with a route of 120 nautical miles.
Those who prefer surfing will be energised by the European Flowboarding Championships held in Sant Antoni in June. Swimming enthusiasts can take part in the swim across the Sant Antoni channel or the Travesía Popular Festes de Sant Bartomeu, a swim from the Aquarium of Es Cap Blanc to Caló des Moro (850 m). There are also stamina trials for the best-prepared athletes: the Ibiza Blue Challenge triathlon combines swimming (2.5 km), athletics (13 km) and cycling (90 km).
Runners enjoy contests such as Portus Magnos (3 km) or Milla Urbana Isla de Ibiza, which brings together hundreds of contestants for the classic 1,609 m. Anyone preferring big challenges has the Ibiza Trail Marathon (42 km), or the tough Trail Ibiza, running across the island for over 100 kilometres.
Hikers can travel on the paths of Camins de Portmany, a circular circuit of about 40 km in a setting of great ecological and scenic value. And throughout the year, there is a succession of competitions and events, ranging from Nordic Walking, to cycling, fitness, beach volleyball and even chess.
