The quaint, medieval town of Benissa is one of the oldest in the Costa Blanca, just under an hour's drive from Alicante, nestled between the picturesque resorts of Moraira and Calpe, where the famous Penon de Ifach Natural Park lies. Located off the A-7 Motorway, Benissa is known for its historic charms and rural landscape, while the sparkling Mediterranean is just 5km away. As an unspoiled resort, Benissa offers a quieter side to the Costa Blanca where the wild natural surroundings blend with the traditional atmosphere of this authentic Spanish region and the hilly landscape calls for adventure. Discover fruit orchards and valleys dotted with lemon and orange groves, while the 4km of coastline is home to four beautiful white sand beaches; Cala Lobella, Baladrar, La Fustera and Cala Pinet. Perfect for soaking up the sun away from the main tourists crowds, Benissa's coast is lively with marine life, making it a great destination for scuba diving, home to one of the longest running diving centres in the Costa Blanca.
The fresh produce market every Saturday in the Marina Alta area, is a great way to mingle with the locals, while a trip to the walled old town with its Valencian Renaissance quarter and fortified Medieval church will give a sense of the resort's medieval roots. In the evenings, there are plenty of rustic seafront restaurants and bars offering local Spanish delicacies and the chance to enjoy some local and international music; but if you're looking for a buzzing nightlife, you may want to head towards the bright lights of Benidorm, just a 25 minute drive from Benissa.
The ancient town of Benissa lies 275m above sea level, in-between the northern Costa Blanca resorts of Calpe and Moraira, in the province of Alicante. It has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the region, which is known for its quiet countryside ideal for hiking and its magnificent old town steeped in Roman, Arab and Moorish history.
Bay of Les Bassetes is the best place to enjoy views of Calpe and Penon de Ifach Natural Park, with a mix of limestone rock and sand. This Blue Flag spot is ideal for snorkeling, kayaking and diving, with beachfront restaurants and bars providing all the refreshments you need. Family-friendly La Fustera beach has a lifeguard on duty, where the picturesque landscape is made up of meadows of seagrass and fine natural sand. Pebbled and palm-fringed La Llobella Cove is the most unspoiled of them all, boasting calm waters perfect for a solitary swim.
Walking through the streets of Benissa's old town is a little different to your typical old town square and plaza. Remnants and monuments of past civilisations can be found in every direction, such as the art of the Valencian Renaissance quarter and 16th century Palace of Torres-Orduña, which is also a cultural centre and library.
