Other than hiring a vehicle or getting taxis to explore the island, boats are a fantastic and reasonably priced way to travel. From 1st May, the water taxis along San Antonio port cannot be missed. You can check the timetables on the kiosks situated in front of the boats, or there are usually display boards next to the boat itself which give details. Each ‘water taxi’ has one destination, so check you are on the correct boat, the captain/staff are happy to help. Tickets are either purchased as you go to board the water taxi or when you are on board. Pushchairs can be taken on board but you will need to collapse them—so bear that in mind.
The water taxis go from San Antonio to numerous different points in the Bay, including Pinet Playa (Reggae Reggae Beach), Playa Xinxo (Relish Restaurant/Hotel Playa Bella/Hotel Amare). They cost around 3/4€ each way and the timetable is 9.30am – 9.30pm and boats leave every thirty minutes, until 1.30pm when they change to hourly.
