The feeling of a buggy ride is something incomparable, feeling the wind on your face, and the sunlight. 

Along the way, different stops will be made at places of interest and viewpoints on the island, such as the View Point on the island of Es Vedrá, one of the most magical points on the island. There will also be bathing stops to enjoy the crystalline turquoise waters after a successful and hot day, where you can cool off and take photos, and then return to the initial starting point.

It is an ideal activity to do with family or friends. The only thing you will have to bring is a coat, comfortable shoes, sunglasses, sunscreen, swimwear, and never forget your driver’s license.

If you rent a quad you will need to wear a helmet, which is provided by the rental company, and they can only drive over 21 years old, with a license.

If you prefer to rent a buggy, as they are small cars, you will not need a helmet, but a seat belt. Unlike quads, buggies can ride small children, as companions.

A jet ski excursion along the coast of San Antonio de Portmany combines the unique nature of the island of Ibiza with an indescribable and unforgettable adrenaline rush.

Here we leave you all the options available to enjoy pure adrenaline.


En la costa de Sant Antoni de Portmany, y Sant Josep encontramos las playas más visitadas, los atardeceres más bellos, y famosos de la isla. 

Puedes encontrar cuevas, y calas de aguas transparentes de color esmeralda. Fondos de arena, rocas y praderas de poseidonia.

Previamente antes de subir abordo, un instructor te explicará todo lo que necesitas saber para conducir de forma segura, y con confianza.

Lo más importante que debes saber es que no debes alejarte de la costa, ni acercarte mucho a las piedras, debes ir a una distancia media, tener respeto y distanciarte de otras embarcaciones.

Cuando desees detenerte para disfrutar de un baño, deberás encontrar una zona donde puedas ver el fondo, y asegurarte de poner el ancla en una zona de arena que puedas ver. Es muy importante que no haya rocas para que el ancla no se quede atascada, y deban ir a socorrerte.

Siempre debes tener en cuenta que son barcos pequeños, por lo cual la velocidad máxima siempre será de 15HP.
