The Benirras beach is a 4-minute walk from Villa Roca and the Pagoda Garden along a private-path. One of the most famous beaches on the island, steeped in beach history, home to the worlds most luxurious super-yachts that come and go the occupants of which frequents the beach restaurants. Benirras is the only bay on the island to be designated a nature reserve therefore not a single hotel in sight.
We now have one cafe, bar open all year round on Benirras beach.
Benirras is in the unspoiled north of the island, an area rich in ley lines and with a strong spiritual history. Famous for its wonderful sunsets, the west-facing bay is home to a rock known as ‘The King of Benirras’ which sits majestically in the crystalline waters. The beach has three typical Spanish restaurants and an ice cream and juice bar.
The strict local planning laws ensure that no unsightly hotels or resorts are built in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Villa Roca and the Pagoda Garden and the owners Villa Nova are among the less than a dozen villas in this unspoiled nature harbour.
A well-kept secret by the locals, the wide curved beach is of soft sand that gently slopes into the sea. The sheltered natural harbour is a popular anchoring spot for private yachts and motorboats, who often gather there to enjoy the romantic sundown. Good for snorkellers. Size: 160 metres long, 40 metres wide. Naked bathing to one side of the beach.
Benirras beach has been voted ‘the 4th best beach in Europe’ by the Sunday Times Travel Supplement and the best address in Ibiza by The best of Ibiza Magazine.

If you want to feel closer to nature, why not try one of our delightful pagodas , in the garden of Villa Roca. It has easy access to the yoga deck and its facilities include a really refreshing, powerful shower. By day, you can surround yourself with the sounds of countless birds, including robins, hawks, swifts, sparrows, and gulls, and feel the sea air fill and clean your lungs.
At night you can send yourself to sleep listening to the gentle sound of nature and the sweet scent of pine trees. If you live in a town or city, you will be taken aback by its silence, save the calming sounds of crickets and feel of the breeze. On moonlit nights you can see the shimmering trees and fauna cast their shadows in what can only be described as magical.
On clear summer nights, you will recognize the many constellations, with the Milky Way spread across the sky like magic dust, and if you are really lucky, you can see shooting stars. After a night or two, you will forget all about the traffic, noise and pollution of the big city and almost imagine you are back in time, when people lived simply, spending their lives amongst nature.
