Nightlife is abundant in Santa Ponsa with its numerous bars — many of which are English-speaking or have British themes. Nightclubs often feature live shows and karaoke nights. Eat at one of Santa Ponsa’s many restaurants, with options for a romantic dinner for two or a family affair. If you come to Santa Ponsa around Sept. 10, you’ll see the 10-day fiesta with parades that begin at the marina, go through town and end on the beach. Watch the mock battle between the Moors and Christians, then enjoy a rock concert on the beach followed by a massive fireworks display.
