Cala Gracio, IBIZA
Cala Gracio is a beautiful, small, secluded beach only 2km from San Antonio — close enough to walk to, but far enough to keep the crowd away.
It’s very cosy, surrounded by woods and fincas. There are several hotels and apartments nearby, but they don’t overlook the bay so it maintains a sense of privacy.

This beach is more for the younger crowd, many of them British party-goers who would rather spend a relaxing day here after a big night. It doesn’t get overcrowded, but can get packed early in some corners during high season. The beach is pristine and clear; it’s about 80 meters long, 40 meters wide, and shallow near the beach, making it popular for families with young children. Large rocks and boat garages line both sides of the bay, making it very narrow and sheltered from the wind. Facilities available are sun loungers, parasol, toilets, showers, lifeguards, and access for disabled. A short swim will take you to the neighbouring beach, Cala Gracionetta.
FOOD & DRINK
There is a small chiringuito at Cala Gracio – a beach bar serving snacks and refreshments. There are a couple of restaurants nearby too. A walk (or swim) around the corner will find you at the neighbouring beach Cala Gracionetta, with its famous restaurant called El Chiringuito. It serves fresh Mediterranean cuisine, wine and cocktails.
No shops close by..
THINGS TO DO
This is really a beach to lounge and sunbathe. There are no water sports like the more popular beaches. Some of the rocky areas are good for snorkelling, though, and you can take a walk around the rocks and pine trees.
You can get there by bike, car, bus or on foot. From San Antonio, take the road to Cove Salada and St Agnes. When you get to the roundabout next to the school, take the Cala Gracio turn. Half a kilometer later, at the roundabout, take a right, down the street you’ll see the entrance to the cove.
