A short walk from the hustle and bustle of San Antonio, you can find real tranquillity. The delightfully quaint beach of Cala Gracioneta can be found just 5 minutes from the sunset strip by car. If you travel north along the western coast, you can find lots of intimate beaches and villages, but the closest for a day out from San Antonio is this.
Upon arrival at Cala Gracioneta, your breath will be taken away by a real example of the beauty Ibiza has to offer. The long stretch of sand is sheltered by narrow cliffs either side, that can be climbed for an even more impressive view of the sunset. The gentle tide brushes against the sand effortlessly, in testament to the peacefulness of Cala Gracioneta.
Nearby the slightly larger twin of Cala Gracio can be found, which is equally beautiful. In the less peak time of the summer season, you can even find yourself at Cala Gracioneta with not another sole around you. The intimacy of this beach gives you the refreshing feeling that you have your own personal space here.
The biggest local attraction for Cala Gracioneta is the popular El Chiringito restaurant. Famous for its blend of Mediterranean cuisines, El Chiringito is a perfect example of an Ibicencan restaurant. If you wish to dine during sunset hours, you are advised to book a table. The popularity of El Chiringito makes it a restaurant that is recommended by most Ibiza veterans, including ourselves. Watching the sunset whilst dining here epitomises how ending a day in Ibiza can make you feel.
