How to Find the retreat
Directions: There are two routes that will lead you to the retreat. Here we have given directions for the shortest, easiest route that takes you along a brand new road with plenty of street lighting, making for a smoother journey.
By taxi and Car
From the airport follow the signs for Eivissa (Ibiza Town), you will then see signs for Santa Eularia, follow these signs, bypassing Eivissa.Halfway to Sta Eularia (about 10-15 minutes into the journey), look out for a Left-Hand Turn, signposted Santa Gertrudis and San Miguel. Take this turning. If you miss the turning don’t worry you can continue along this road for several miles before seeing the sign to Benirras.
Follow signs for San Miguel. You will drive past Santa Gertrudis, following a newly built, smooth road that has a cycle lane and pedestrian walkway on either side.
On the approach to San Miquel, you will see the white church of San Miquel, sitting high on the approaching hilltop.
When you reach the town of San Miquel you are looking for a right-hand turn with a brown signpost for Benirras. Take this turn.
Follow this road for about 5minutes (approx. 2km), you will then see a brown signpost for a left-hand turn to Benirras, this turn is at a crossroads. Take this turn.
This winding road will bring you all the way to Benirras. In the daytime, you can see the Pagodas and Villa Roca on the hillside, from the road, on the left. Approx. 100m from the beach, you will find a staggered crossroads, signposted, to the left for “caves” and Port San Miguel. You are on our doorstep now.
