Cala Benirras, Port de Sant Miguel

#6 of 29 in Beaches in Ibiza
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.

    Famous for its sunset, the tamtam dances, the super cool atmosphere. That it happened! Almost more tamtam, who is this Renter who dislodged the hippies, tamtam players, dancers! Disappointed, this place even if there is this beautiful sunset, the magic of the place is no longer. Beniras is dead. Total disappointment

    I had read some comment on the Cove and as not went to check it out. the environment with one-third of the eligible people. you have drive to a parking lot in which you ride by bus to access the Cove since Sunday is the feast of the drums. This I see normal as there are regular people who want to go to the beach. surprise 20. 000 cars parked beside the Cove. We arrived and as not to find place in the Cove dominated by thousand hammocks and parasols of payment. all them occupied and some soil sand not free. Finally a place for two. which apparently they also entered another 5 more. well let's water. not os images that waters Crystal from other parts of the island. Anyway. the sunset as I see not worth since among 27 boats that conté, a row of people's feet on the Bank that would not let you see. We are ideal for not returning in August. I think that at another time of the year it will be otherwise. and like all things on the island. mercantilizadas
