Cala Benirrás Beach in Ibiza

Beach of Cala Benirrás, the beach of the drums

Cala Benirrás Beach is famous for its sunset drum parties

Cala Benirras

We can find the Cove of Benirràs in the municipality of Sant Joan, between the towns of Sant Miquel and Sant Joan, taking the road that joins both parishes. The ideal is the access by car, especially considering that the distance to Ibiza is about 25 km and 9 km from Sant Joan, and that road presents steep slopes, just within reach of cyclists. In keeping with the geography of the municipality, the cala benirras is enclosed between mountainous areas with abundant Mediterranean vegetation. It is a beautiful place where you can enjoy trails always taking care to not lose sight of the Cove. In times of rain, we can enjoy a torrent that flows into the beach. Keep in mind that the seabed conditions are altered in the areas of the stream.

After the fire

The photographs that accompany this page are taken after the fire that swept the area. Today, Cala Benirrás is still visited by bathers, and people, even less, listen to the drums at dusk. The air becomes a little melancholy when you look up over the hills that have changed the lush green through a scorched landscape in many of its areas. Although the terrain has been cleaned, the images of the entrance to the cove are bleak, where the fire caused much more havoc. Still, the cove of Benirrás still maintains its charm.
