If you are looking for a different party than usual and especially if you want to know the hippie soul of Ibiza, you have to go to Benirras.
Every Sunday you can watch the drum party: a very hippie party that takes place on the beach, when the sun begins to fall.
The tradition of the drum festival is historic in Ibiza, a ritual to celebrate the sunset introduced by the first hippies who landed on the island.
About fifteen percussionists incite the crowd to dance on tribal rhythms and melodies that gradually become more pressing.
Percussionists occasionally call some girls in the middle of the circle to dance free on the sound of drums and involve the rest of the people.
Among the girls, however, serene competitions are born with Twerky. The spectators become the judges but all win and thank the audience.
