At the back of the stunning crystal blue, water kissed cove of Cala
Gracioneta is the little known gem that is El Chiringuito. Now part of
the Cafe Mambo group, this firm favourite with the locals is a superb
setting for romantic, fairytale weddings, the cove with its shelved bay
and golden sands.
Access to Cala Gracioneta can be found by taking a drive down a winding
road from San Antonio and then a gentle tree lined stroll to the back of
the beach where you’ll find the restaurant.
The restaurant by day is a chilled out family favourite, with children
able to splash and play safely in the gently shelved bay. Breakfast is
served from 10am in relaxed rustic style with fresh coffee and juices
and can be taken either on the terrace in the shade or to your beach
lounger if you desire. The lunch menu, served from 12:30 offers a choice
menu of fresh fish and seafood or traditional tapas along with many
other lighter bites.

explore the neighbouring Gala Gracio, visitors discover this little gem
by taking a short walk up and along the perimeter of the coastal rocks.
