104 Ibiza Beaches – Benirras

BenirrasThe cove of Benirras is well known beyond this island’s shores. Artists, hedonists and hippies have been meeting here for years to enjoy, dance and drum the day away. The annual drumming festival for world peace in August and the spontaneous jam sessions at sundown, or on nights with a full moon, have attracted film teams and journalists like moths to a flame.

These days the old flair shares the place with modern tourists and visitors. This gorgeously located cove on Ibiza’s northern coast pulls people from all over who come to enjoy the very special atmosphere.

However, the flood of visitors has had its consequences. The drumming festival for world peace has been banned and the full moon parties have been proscribed by the police. There’s no question that the legendary hippy era, when everyone could do whatever they felt like, is long since past, but Ibiza wouldn’t be Ibiza if at least a soupcon of freedom and individuality hadn’t survived.

The musicians are in it for the long haul and didn’t allow themselves to be driven away from the beach. The Sunday sunset jam sessions have survived to this day, and they shouldn’t be missed.

Those who desire a little more seclusion shouldn’t visit this pine tree surrounded cove on a Sunday. During the week it’s much less crowded. It’s actually wonderful no matter which day you come and even if it isn’t a Sunday you’re sure to find a few musicians and hedonists whenever you’re here.
To find it follow the signs from the road between Sant Miquel and Sant Joan.
