Party Earth Cala Gracio / Gracioneta Review

The Scene

By far the nicest beach within walking distance of San Antonio, Cala Gracio/Gracioneta is actually two beaches inside a rocky-cliffed cove that creates a heart-shaped beach and calm waters.

By far the nicest beach within walking distance of San Antonio, Cala Gracio/Gracioneta is actually two beaches inside a rocky-cliffed cove that creates a heart-shaped beach and calm waters.

Long and narrow, Cala Gracio is the bigger of the two stretches of sand and draws the larger crowds, likely because it’s the closest of the pair to town and to many hotels. Those who want a bit more elbow room need only sit farther back from the water, where a row of pine trees offers some shade and privacy.

Quaint and rustic boat houses dug into the rock line the base of the cliffs that both divide and connect the two beaches, and a short walk around this point will lead sunbathers to the smaller and always less crowded Gracioneta. The shallower, crystal-clear waters in this area create a wading pool environment in which people stand waist-high in the water to enjoy some idle chatter.

Although both beaches have their own bar or café, Gracioneta’s offering is a bit more upscale and specializes in paella and fish dishes.

For the mixed crowd of friendly locals and travelers, the two beaches provide a nice contrast to the frenzy of San Antonio’s main beach, while still maintaining a festive atmosphere.

Tip from Emma:

Great place for a more peaceful do-it-yourself sunset party. There will definitely be others there with the same idea, but without doubt the crowd and the vibe will be much less chaotic than it is at the usual sunset bars.

  • Crowd

    Typical laid-back beach mix of locals, families, couples, and travelers, all ages.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient and pop hits emanating from the cafés. Massive beach party in mid-August at Cala Gracio for the San Bartolomeu festival.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Full seafood restaurant on Gracioneta, lighter café fare on Gracio.

  • Prices

    Food €10–€15. Beer €2.50, mixed drinks €7, water €2.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Beachwear.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any day for sunbathing and any evening for sunset.

  • Close By

    Putumayo (Carretera Cap Negret, 6) is a happening bar with live music nightly.
