Weekly Walk to Moon Beach informaiton : 

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.

What do I wear ? Trainers will suffice it has been tackled with flip flops but not advised.

What do I take with me ? Sun hat , bottle of water.

How long does the walk take ? 3 hours 

Difference in Altitude ? 100metres 

Distance there and back ? 10 kilometres = 8 miles 

Trip to local cave named Can Marca information : 

To see where the smugglers kept their contraband. 

The guided tour of the cave takes 45 minute. Refreshments can be purchased afterwards on the platform over looking Port San Miguel 

The stalactites and stalagmites are waiting to be seen.

From the first viewpoint , there is a panoramic view over the whole of the bay of the Puerto San Miguel , also know as Puerto Balanzat . The Murada island can be seen in the back ground where a unique prehistoric species of Muradensis lizard lives. After following along a path cut out of the rocks, one reaches the mouth of the cave , at a level of 14 metres above sea level . This is the starting point of the visit. The cave is over 100,000 old and has suffered ice ages and tropical heat waves. Discovered by smugglers who used it for hiding their goods, hoisting them up from the sea from an opening located 10 metres above sea level . It is still possible to see the red and black paint marks signposting another way out of the cave in case the smugglers had to escape in a hurry.

The tour of the cave costs €9.AUTUNM / WINTER (up until 1st April 2017)
