On the north coast of Ibiza we find the cove of Benirràs, 7.5km from Sant Miquel de Balansat. It is reached after a pleasant drive between mountains and vegetation, arriving at the beach, and accessed from the Sant Joan de Labritja road, or from the Port of Sant Miquel.
This magnificent beach is known around the island for its famous hippie drum parties. However, this beach is much more than a show as its great location in the west of the north region of the Island makes it an ideal location for enjoying the Ibizan sunset. There is nothing like bathing in its waters while you contemplate the rays of the sun disappearing on the horizon. Best of all is Cap Bernat, an islet facing this coast which completes this beautiful scene with its enormous silhouette in the twilight as night falls.
On Sunday afternoons, the sunset is accompanied by the rhythms of drums in unison, an authentic hippie atmosphere. Next to the sandbanks there is a small market where we can find all kinds of hand-crafted items.
