Benirrás beach is one of the most well known and best loved beaches in the north of the island. Famous for its stunning sunsets and Sunday hippie drumming sessions, Benirrás is a must see for anyone who wants to experience an alternative side to the island. Benirrás is beautifully located on the island’s picturesque northern coastline and has a beach made up of both sand and pebbles. The crystal clear water and rocky seabed are the ideal setting for some snorkeling.
Benirrás beach is only accessible by car and is well signposted from the near by village of San Miguel. There is a small car park at the beach but it is nowhere near sufficient enough to cater for all of the beach’s visitors in the summer, there is parking along the road to the beach but this could result in a pretty long long walk. The Sunday drumming session are extremely popular so we advise to to get down early and spend the day at the beach if you want to experience them. Alternatively, there are Sunday sunset boat trips to Benirrás throughout the summer and although you won’t actually step foot on the beach you’ll still get to experience it’s magic.
Being a busy beach, Benirrás has most of the facilities you would expect. There are plenty of sunbeds and parasols so you can sit in the sun or chill in the shade in comfort while you’re there. There are also lifeguards on duty throughout the day to make sure you and your family are safe while enjoying some time in the sea and plenty of showers for you to rinse off once you decide to get out. There’s isn’t much in the way of activities at Benirrás beach but you could always hire a pedalo and explore the surrounding coastline.
There are three restaurants on Benirrás beach for some food and drinks, there’s also a small beach bar and boutique to make your time here that little bit more enjoyable.
