Cala Benirràs - Well-known sandy beach among rocks and pine forests
Cala Benirràs, surrounded by hills and pine forests, is one of the most well-known beaches in the north of Ibiza. It is the location of the Fiesta de los tambores which is an amazing spectacle which takes place every Sunday in summer. Numerous hippies gather in the evening at the beach and play improvised music on their drums while the sun sets on the horizon. The music and dancing carry on into the early hours of the morning.
Cala Benirràs can be reached in ten minutes by car from Port Sant Miquel. The journey through the shady pine forests puts you into the right holiday mood. There are several car parks right at the beach, which is usually fairly busy during the day. However, compared to other smaller bays of Ibiza, Cala Benirràs is a very long beach and therefore not crowded. The fine sand is covered in parts with pebbles and the way into the water is also over a stony surface. There are numerous sun-loungers and parasols here to ensure a relaxed day at the beach.
In spite of its remote natural location Cala Benirràs has several restaurants with cosy, shady patios. The Elements restaurant is very individually furnished with old sideboards and white wooden chairs. Here there are not only local dishes and cocktails on offer, but also massages, clothing and jewellery and in the evening there is often a party taking place.
A wide variety of people come to this beach and young couples and families with children feel equally at home here. There are no water-sport activities at Cala Benirràs, but pedal boats are available for hire.
