A walk to the next bay , named Moon beach takes places each week . The walk starts from Villa Roca , walk 100 metres up the hill along the Callle de Benirras towards the San Juan Road . From here we start along the uphill path that meanders its way higher and higher . The stunning views along the way are of the valley that Benirras is part of and the hills beyond at highest point it is possible to see the centre of the entire island. We pass an old disused Lime Kiln surrounded by pine trees and shortly after we are at the top.The view from the top of the mountain is probably the best to be had of Benirras Bay, Ills des Bosc and the Mediterranean beyond .
From the best view point , we start the journey down the other side of the mountain toward our final destination. In view now is Isla den Caldes and some days on the horizon you may see the Ferry that passes from Magalouf to Denia and back daily. The path zig-zags its way almost to the end , where it levels out in a straight line . Moon beach is found via a pathway through a small gulley. A beach that has no houses or no roads to it , just a dirt track makes it available to the few fisherman huts that are built into the rocky hill at sea level next to the sandy shore. Its a small beach but quite a delight.Moon beach is famous for its hippie parties going back to the 1970’s.
