Cala Gracio holidays give you a double whammy of beaches, as well as the option of heading into nearby night owl, San Antonio Town.

Small but mighty

Cala Gracio is proof that you can have your cake and eat it. This place wins serious seclusion points for its cosy coves, but it’s just up the coast from Ibiza’s clubbing king. Most of the activity is beach-based, but you’ve got a couple of restaurants on the main road – the one that runs all the way to San Antonio.

Twin coves

There’s more than one cala in Cala Gracio – this place has two U-shaped coves to its name. The main one buzzes with families and watersports, but it’s still quiet – by Ibizan standards. There’s a family-run restaurant here, too, which whips up a proper paella. If you fancy switching it up, you can swim or walk to the smaller beach around the corner.

Close to the action

One of the Balearic Islands' buzziest towns is a hop, skip and a jump from Cala Gracio. Hop in a taxi and you can be on a dancefloor on San Antonio's famous Sunset Strip in 10 minutes or less. Daytrip-wise, you’re also really close to family fave Cap Blanc Aquarium. This former smugglers’ cave is now filled with tanks of octopus, fish and lobsters.
