A sight for sore eyes! The cove in Cala Gracioneta is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches of Sant Antoni de Portmany. Narrow but well hidden (so avoiding overcrowding), this small beach has a lot of advantages. The first is its totally preserved environment in the middle of a pine forest. The second, it is quiet (despite the presence of a restaurant with music reminding us that we are in Ibiza) and situated in a well sheltered bay. And thirdly, its gentle shelving beach which makes it ideal for swimming and for beach games directly in the water.
Here, there are no sun loungers ... only one restaurant in the end of the cove. Some pine trees provide some shade in the morning.
Although this beach is close to Cala Gracio, access is not easy to find ... and parking is almost impossible. The cove is indicated at the beginning (follow the signs to Cala Gracio) then a small dirt track goes off to the right. You must follow it for about 300 meters. then there is a kind of natural roundabout. Access to the cove is on the left through the scrub. Parking is difficult.
Beautiful cove close to Cala Gracio ... with is not over crowded.
Nice sand, clear waters ... a dream?
Although swimming is not supervised, the shallow waters are reassuring.
In the morning, no problem finding shade.
Small and access is not easy... difficult to find! There is also a restaurant with some music ... we're in Ibiza!
