The Gració Bay (Cala) is located along the coast of Ibiza Island, in the northwestern part.
It is a U-shaped bay, bordered to the north by Cap Negret and south of Cap Blanc and is subdivided into two smaller coves. Entering the bay and holding on to the right, you meet the largest creek.
The smaller inlet is called Cala Gracioneta and is located in the northern and western part of the bay. The two coves are divided by a small promontory.
The bottom is sandy, with seaweed. The waters are crystal clear and generally calm. The winds that affect the bay are those coming from the west, southwest and northwest, while the area is well protected by currents in other directions. The best place to stay at the bottom of the Graza cave, is in the central part, at least 150 meters from the shore, where the depths range from four to six meters. The bay is surrounded by low red stone cliffs and is located in a semi-urbanized area with few and small buildings. Near by the beach, there are small boat sheltering.
Both the two beaches of Cala Gració are covered up with white and fine sand and are surrounded by beautiful pine forests. People arriving by car, can park their autos in the adjacent free parking. It is possible also to reach the beaches of Cala Gració by bus: the nearest stop is 800 meters from the main beach and one kilometer from the Gracioneta. On the main beach, you can find a public telephone and showers.
The center of Sant Antoni de Portmany is about 1.5 km from the bay, and this makes the beach a quite busy place in the summer. In the close proximity of Cala Gració you can find restaurants, hotels and some clubs.
Slightly further north, there is another fairly lively cove on the west coast of Ibiza: Cala Salada.
