Our men’s swimwear brand, Benibeca, is now present at the most exclusive boutiques and department stores in the world. After only three seasons since its recent beginnings in 2017, our original prints have managed to compete along the most renown brands of the men’s luxury swimwear market. This season we have experienced with pride an average of a 300% growth in sales, and we continue on our path of learning and improving our designs and services, in order to successfully satisfy the stylistic needs of the dear members of our international community.
Benibeca was born from a peak of inspiration and from the honest and sincere wish to become an original and innovative men’s swimwear brand. By refusing to follow the status quo of the superfluous and temporary trends of the main fashion runaways, at Benibeca we decided to opt for a long lasting and different concept that would help us design timeless apparel.
We get inspired by the artistic expressions and the cultures of the purest and most exotic tribes in the world, which are reluctant to follow the contemporary homogenization process, and remain true to their own essence and connection to nature. From our designer Anjara Garcia’s own interpretation of their art – which she truly admires – and from the combination of her passion for fashion and the vivid colors of the Mediterranean landscapes, Benibeca came to life.
At the moment our men’s swimwear brand is displayed at prestigious points of sale in some of the main countries in the world. You may purchase our clothing from the modern beaches of Miami in the USA, from the picturesque coast of the ancient Mykonos, in Greece, or from the vibrating and never sleeping streets of Tokyo, in Japan. Our brand is featured at renown stores like El Corte Ingles, Printemps, De Bijenkorf, Soho Beach House Miami, Nino Álvarez, etc.
Besides, we are constantly working on expanding our horizons and on being present at the most exotic coast destinations in the world, which is why we are proud to announce that our next Spring Summer 2020 collection will be available at different exclusive department stores and high-end boutiques in Mexico as well.
Internationally not only have we achieved an important market niche as a high-quality men’s swimwear brand in barely two years, but our designs have also been displayed at some of the most prestigious fashion fairs.
Almost from the very beginning, our original and exotic prints, which stand out among the rest of the brands, have allowed us to be present at the famous Pitti Immagine Uomofashion fair in Florence, a biennial must-go-to event for the most distinguished brands and retailers. Will you come visit us at the next 97th edition which will take place in January of 2020?
And if you hadn’t had the chance to meet us at any of these events, we are currently being represented by different specialized showrooms in many countries, like USA, Spain, Austria, Greece or South Korea.
Definitely, Benibeca has strongly emerged in the international men’s swimwear industry with the intention and eagerness to stay for long. We are a relatively young brand, but our hard work and our efforts to constantly improve our quality season by season have helped us meet and exceed all our expectations and those of our dear clients.
Benibeca was born from the research work, the spiritual trips, the inspiration and the talent for fashion of the Spanish designer Anjara García, who has personally designed by hand every single one of our patterns. Her true and devoted dedication have turned Benibeca into a refined, high-quality and international men’s swimwear brand.
Why are Benibeca male swimshorts so unique? Why is Benibeca so different? Because of its capacity to set new trends precisely by avoiding trends. It’s a blow of fresh air, a breeze full of beating energy that ignores the status quo established by the fashion industry.
Benibeca’s inspiration is based on a retrospective towards the most archaic, tribal, pure and exotic lifestyle. We respect and cherish cultural plurality and we get overwhelmed by the authentic beauty of the customs and traditions of primitive tribes and their pure connection to nature. Our designs are born from our humble, personal and artistic interpretation of their spirit, combined with the distinctive colors of the Mediterranean landscapes.

Colors and textures that inspire us
The designer, Anjara García, loyal to her passion for travelling and wild experiences, has studied the most recondite territories from Africa, Asia and Oceania in search of what she calls “the authentic inspiration”. The aim of her spiritual researches and journeys has been to create a genuine brand, far from the homogeneous artificiality of the swimwear market.
She dreams of visiting the Tonga island in Polynesia, in order to get the chance to admire the primitive designs of the ngatu – mainly known as tapa cloth -, that is, barkcloth tapestries typical of the region, famous for their tropical and traditional patterns.
She’s carefully studied these fabrics and reinterpreted and transformed them according to her unique taste for design and the characteristic Mediterranean colors available at the – which gives name to the brand itself. These have served as inspiration for some of our best seller male swimshorts.
Her only intention is to respect, admire and pay tribute to the untouched pureness of the art of primitive societies, which still to this day remain deeply connected to nature. Some of our male swimshorts have even been baptized after different tribes, such as the Nuba, the Himba, or the Dinka male swim shorts.
Anjara let herself fall into the arms of the magic and the mysticism that the Sub-Saharan Africa emanates, and she fell in love with the body art made with colored clays or the scarifications of the Nuba people -in Sudan-, which she got inspired by for some of our most emblematic models, like the Simba male swimshorts.
She studied the traditions of the Zulu people – from the KwaZulu-Natal region in South Africa – and she got fascinated by their primitive dances, and by the spirituality and the vibrations of their movements. From the sensations that the natural harmony of their arms in movement made her feel, our African Dancers model was born.
In order to design some of the Benibeca male swimshorts, Anjara also got inspired by the wildest customs and the use of color of the most instinctive Huli people, in Papua New Guinea. She also admires the archaic low reliefs belonging to the Maya civilizations in Chichen Itza, and the patterns of the traditional colorful necklaces of the Turkana people, in Kenya.
Why are Benibeca male swimshorts so unique? Because they are art, magic, and pure spirit. Our brand is a modern and artistic reinterpretation of the soul of the most primitive and beautiful tribes in the world. Anjara does not intend to incur in cultural appropriation, but to get inspired by the beauty of their art, in order to pay them tribute and show them her honest admiration and respect. She wishes to show the world her humble and sincere understanding of the sensations that they make her feel. She seeks to bring authenticity to the world of fashion, and to bring the cosmopolitan man closer to his most instinctive, adventurous and primitive side.

Best beach destinations to travel to in December. Why not celebrate Christmas on swim trunks? If you don’t like cold snows, you wish to embark yourself on a not-so-traditional Christmas trip, or you’re simply happier sunbathing on an island paradise, keep on reading. Here we’ll show you our top 5 warm destinations that are ideal to travel to at this time of the year and also our favorite luxury resorts, so that you can enjoy an unforgettable experience. And of course, we’ll also present to you an exclusive selection of the Benibeca swim trunks we recommend to you for each destination!
The Riviera Maya is undoubtedly one of the first places that come to our mind when we think about the best beach destinations to travel to in December, not only because of the spectacular beauty of its natural landscapes, its turquoise clear water or the soft white sand, but also because the dry season goes from November to April, which means you’ll be able to enjoy warm sunny weather on almost every day throughout these months.
A trip to the heavenly Mexican coast of Quintana Roo – where the Riviera Maya is located – is an utter dream on its own, but getting to stay at one of the most luxurious hotels in the area would turn your holidays into an authentic fantasy. The “Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort” offers exclusively designed lounges and restaurants, and dreamy suites with private balconies and pools, all surrounded by the majestic views of the Caribbean Sea. Can you picture yourself enjoying your Christmas dinner with the tranquil Caribbean waters and the orange-tainted sundown sky for background?
Moreover, you can join the next-to-shore night clubs for vibrant parties; take a walk around the famous Fifth Avenue and breath in its eclectic combination of local restaurants, bars and art galleries; or if you wish to get even more immersed in their culture, you could visit Chichen Itzá – UNESCO world heritage –; Cobá – the highest pyramid in Quintana Roo –; the Maya ruins of Tulum; the Xcaret theme park; or the mysterious underground caves of Río Secreto.
And so that your vacations can be even more wonderful, don’t forget to bring with you some of our most elegant swimwear models from our Ready to Swim & Wear collection. The sophisticated shades of the Goronda, Orowana and Chenche prints somehow remind us of the garnet and golden traditional Christmas colors. What do you think?
Another one of the best beach destinations to travel to in December that cannot be overlooked is the Paradise Island in the Bahamas. As its own name indicates, it’s the paradise of luxury vacations, and even more so if you decide to stay at “The Ocean Club” Four Seasons Hotel, often visited by worldwide renown socialites.
Its dreamy elegant gardens, inspired by the French Versailles palace, are completed with luxurious stairs, stone paths, artificial water fountains, and a romantic cloister made of European columns and arches. Surrounded by the turquoise clear water of the Nassau Harbor, and the exotic purple beauty of the autochthonous Bougainvillea flowers, is the perfect retreat if you wish to enjoy a few days of peace in one of the most amazing spots on earth, away from the commercial tourism industry and the concerns of the outside world.

Also, you’ll be able to walk at sunset along its private beach – over 8 kilometers long –, welcome the New Year with a glass of champagne from the balcony of your own suite, play golf at their private club, or reconnect your soul with nature during a regenerating Balinese-style spa session.
For the relaxing hours we recommend you use one of our shortest models, whose colors inspired by the Mediterranean coast landscapes will allow you to feel in tune with nature. What do you think about our Sky, Bellona or Jungle swim trunks?
Instead, for the Christmas beach dinner, you should try on one of our most elegant and sophisticated models from our Ready to Swim & Wear Collection that are made using the same chromatic line, as the Kasimba, the Sky, or the Awopupa trunks.
If you want to consider another one of the best beach destinations to travel to in December in the Caribbean, it’s impossible not to fall in love with the out-of-a-dream landscapes of the Cayman Islands and the exquisiteness of The Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman Hotel, located in front of the renown Seven Miles beach.
It is considered by many to be the most exotic and paradisiacal enclave in the Caribbean. Its transparent turquoise waters and the soft coral sand turn it into a magical place fit for an unforgettable vacation where there is no room for boredom or conventionalities. You can practice snorkeling; dive among vibrant coral reefs full of life or ancient wrecks; cross the skies while doing paragliding; rent jet skis or even “fly” above the dreamy clear waters with a jet pack. You can’t either forget about visiting George Town, the capital of the islands, or the Cayman Turtle Center. And of course, any visit would go unnoticed if you left without visiting the Cayman Crystal Caves or if you didn’t swim along the playful stingrays in Stingray City.
And after an adventurous day full of aquatic activities, there is nothing more relaxing than an exquisite dinner at one of the six luxurious restaurants that the Ritz-Carlton hotel offers to its guests. They also have two outdoor swimming pools, an aquatic park for the whole family to enjoy, the biggest dancing salon in the islands, golf courses, tennis and basketball courts, and certainly, exclusive suites with private balconies that will allow you to breath in the mesmerizing view of the Caribbean landscapes from your own bed.
And so that you can enjoy one of the best beach destinations to travel to in Decemberwhile remaining loyal to your personal taste and style, don’t forget to pack your favorite Benibeca swim trunks. We believe our Mitiaro, Meza and Futuna models strongly fit in with this destination.
Another top beach destination to travel to in December would be, with no doubts, the Baros Maldives Resort in the Maldives, especially if you wish to spend your winter vacations with your partner. Winner of the world’s most romantic resort title for six years in a row, this complex is composed of private and secluded tropical villas scattered around the exotic Baros Island, and by other ones that are located on an artificial structure in the middle of the Indian ocean, separated from the shore. Can you picture yourself waking up in the Christmas morning to the mesmerizing view of the vast turquoise sea that extends beyond the horizon?
It’s certainly the most ideal destination for couples, which is why many of its activities are very romantic and intimate. You can ask them to prepare you an exclusive and unforgettable candlelight dinner at the beach or choose an even more exquisite experience and enjoy a sophisticated menu on top of an artificial little island in the middle of the ocean.
You can also drink a glass of fine wine aboard a luxurious yacht with your loved one, or get astonished by the beautiful colors of the sunset from a seashore swing. And in order to make your experience even more remarkable, you must visit the marine center – so that you can get to meet their centenary turtles – or go diving to explore the underwater legendary beauty of their coral reefs.
And last but not least, so that you can look stylish in all these memorable moments, take with you your favorite Benibeca swim trunks. As you will be in an intimate and private environment, we recommend to you our shortest and most comfortable models from our “Shortest Trunks” collection, such as the Teraina, the Ambrym, or the Chuuk trunks.
Dubai is undoubtedly the apotheosis of luxury, style and exclusivity. If you have already visited the natural island paradises mentioned above, and you want to enjoy the best beach destination to travel to in December, why not try an artificial one?
Depending on the kind of experience you’re looking for, we recommend you either stay at the famous Atlantis The Palm Hotel – located on the artificial island of Palm Jumeirah -, or, if you’re looking for absolute luxury, rent a suite at the world’s most exclusive and luxurious hotel, the highly renown 7 stars Burj Al Arab Hotel.

You can go kite surfing or be more daring and rent a jet pack; you can visit the Dubai Miracle Garden, the biggest flower garden in the world which contains over 100 millions flowers; you can visit the dreamy Global Village theme park, composed of multicultural recreations, products and shows from over 40 countries; you can admire the beautiful steel skyline of Dubai from the 148th floor of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world; you can go on a safari throughout the Arabian Desert, etc.
