Beach · Nature / Park
Cala Benirrás is a beach in the northern seaboard of the Spanish island of Ibiza. It is in the municipality of Sant Joan de Labritja and is 4.6mi east of the village of Sant Joan de Labritja and 4.6mi north north east of the village of Sant Miquel de Balansat.DescriptionThis beach of this cove, called Port de Benirrás by the local fishermen, is about 300 metres long and is set against a backdrop of densely pine forested cliffs. The beach is a mixture of pebbles and sand with rocks at either end of the beach. The bay's crystal clear sea makes the cove a popular spot for snorkelling but caution is required due to the amount of marine traffic in the bay. The rocks to the side have several dry-dock fisherman’s shacks. The sheltered bay is a popular anchoring spot for private yachts and motor boats during the day, but especially in the late afternoon when there are spectacular sunset views. There are many paths for walkers leading away from the beach through the surrounding woodlands of unspoilt natural beauty. Offshore in the middle of the bay lies the iconic rock called Cap Bernat. The rock is said to resemble, variously, a woman at prayer, a giant baby, or the Sphinx.The Day of The DrumsIbiza was a popular destinations for hippies in the 60's. In that time, it became the scene of sporadic full moon-parties. This declined in the 1980s, but became popular again in the 1990s.

  • Amazing sunset view. Beautiful bay, scenery and wonderful live music. Like the hippie and gypsy vibe,  more »
  • This beach is a beautiful one. The sun sets into the water in the summer! Recommend a visit in spring or autumn to miss the clouds of summer. Market and drumming circle are big attraction during the summer months but drumming carries on every Sunday throughout the year. A great sunset spot!
  • One of Ibiza's most iconic beaches. Benirras is protected on three sides by forested hills which lead to a lovely sandy beach and views down the protected bay which will take your breath away. Swimming and snorkeling are both fantastic in the calm, sheltered, crystal clear water. The beach has blue flag status and is pristine. A mini hippy market and three beach restaurants provide amenities, but the restaurants in particular are quite pricey. Not surprising given the position. Parking is free an plentiful but even so, in the summer months it can be difficult to find a spot. Sunday night is particularly busy and people often walk a mile or more from their car... But at least the walk is a lovely one! It's a beautiful beach and well worth a visit. Four stars instead of five simply because it can be crowded and food is expensive.
