Getting there: There is no need to stress about bus or boat timetables, since it is only a 15-minute walk (approx 2km) from the centre of San Antonio. Otherwise, there is easy car and bus access and small ferry boats go there from San Antonio. Parking is available near to Cala Gració, or clients of the restaurant El Chiringuito can park there for free.

Situated far enough outside of San Antonio to keep the masses away, but near enough to walk, you reward is Cala Gració, a somewhat typical Ibiza beach, whose delicate sand and pristine water mean you're likely to make this one you visit again. The nearby hotels are hidden and don't overlook the beach, allowing a rare sense of privacy and seclusion so close to the activity of San An.

It really is the perfect beach for children, thanks to its safety, being a deep cove there are no extreme waves or currents. The beach itself is a slightly unusual shape, being much deeper than it is wide and sloping gently into the sea. When sea and sand is not enough for the kids, there are some boat houses, shacks, rocky areas and, of course, pine trees for exploring together. For the more adventurous types, the rocky areas also provide a good spot for snorkeling.

Tip: A short walk around the line of the coast from Cala Gració and you find Cala Gracioneta, a tiny beach with all the same characteristics as its bigger neighbour but with an intimacy many only dream of. 

Beach bars and restaurants

There is a beach bar on the sand at the back of the cove that serves refreshments, drinks and snacks all day. Away from the beach, there are also a couple of restaurants nearby. And in Cala Gracioneta there is a good beach restaurant.
