Cala Benirras



Our favourite beach on the island and best kept completely secret to make sure it never gets busier than last year...when it was about perfect.

A beach between San Joan and San Miguel, but with no bus service, so this is can be hard to get to. People have walked all the way there from the main road and back up the long hill, but only after sunset and never again!

A beautiful beach with a huge rock like a clenched fist thrusting out of the sea. A good pedalo ride distant from the beach, but take a mask and snorkel as the fish around the rock are enough to justify a visit. The rustic bar at the left hand of the beach is the coolest and, by virtue of being that, also the busiest. Almost entirely full of locals watching the complexion of the beach change as the tourists leave late afternoon and the drummers and the other hippies arrive for the sunset celebration.

As the bongos reach crescendo and the dancers turn to silhouettes against the setting sun, some feel you can almost taste the birth of the Balearic vibe in the weaving rhythms. Click here for some Benirras sunset photos.
