Benirras is an authentic Ibiza beach on the North West of the island that is steeped in history and culture, and is loved by families, tourists and locals.
It is a ten-minute drive away from San Miguel, but is also accessible by bus during peak seasons. It is made up of pebbles and gravely sand, and there is a rocky seabed beneath crystal clear waters that are terrific for snorkelling.
There are ample facilities at the beach, including a pretty shop and a beach bar, as well as three terrific restaurants using locally sourced fresh food. There are also lifeguards on site to keep you safe, and pedalos available for hire.
It is also home to beautiful scenery, including a unique rock formation known locally as “God’s finger”. It is worth staying till late to witness the stunning sunset, especially on Sundays, where it is famous for being accompanied by a hair raising hippie ritual known as “drum down the sunset”. It dates back to 1991, where it started as a protest against the first Gulf war in Iraq.
