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 :
Directions in English
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.
Here is a Spanish translation to give to your Taxi Driver (cut paste and print or show on mobile) :-
Villa Roca: Girar a la izquierda, senalizado vereis “cueva” y Port san Miguel, pasareis por un pequeno Puente. Despues de pasar por este Puente vereis una entrada a la devecha, subiendo hacia la villa, vereis una roca pintada de color azul claro. Hay otro villa justo debajo de Villa Roca. Subid directamente al villa y vereis un aparcapiento para coches justo delante de una pequena pared echa de roca.
From the airport, I believe these are the only 3 options to reach us by bus. I have labelled them Option 1, 2 and 3 The website I have taken this information from is www.ibizabus.com

The L10 bus will drop you at the Bus station on the Avinguda Isidor Macabich (Ibiza Town). There are several bus stops running along this stretch of road. From here you can catch a bus to either San Miguel or Port San Miguel (our nearest villages).
On the bus journey, look out for Santa Gertrudis, a small town situated in the middle of the island. San Miguel is around 7minutes from here. You can identify when you are arriving in San Miguel when you can see a beautiful white church on a hilltop, approaching ahead.
