Holiday in Benitachell for its authentic Spanish charm and idyllic landscape
Benitachell, or Benitaxell as it's also known, is a small Spanish village and district on the Costa Blanca's north, situated in Alicante Province and located just off the A-7 Motorway. It lies in-between Denia and Calpe, but many tourists pass through the resort on their way to Javea and Moraira on the coast. This postcard region is known for the Coves of Los Tiestos and El Llebeig in the area of Cumbre del Sol, where people come to enjoy the unspoiled beaches sheltered by an impressive cliff landscape. The stunning natural beauty of Montgo Natural Park is just over a 20 minute drive from Benitachell, standing 753m above sea level and the area is tucked away from the main buzz of the Costa Blanca, making Benitachell an ideal destination for families looking for a relaxing beach break.
Benitachell's natural beaches and coves are its main attraction, known for being excellent diving and snorkeling spots. The surrounding landscape calls for adventure and climbers will be in their element in Cala del Moraig, where the rocks, piercing blue waters and sea breeze will make you feel one with nature. Experience the full beauty of the coast with a boat trip and on a clear day you might even be able to see the Balearic island of Ibiza. In the evenings head to the main square for a traditional Spanish meal in authentic surroundings, where you'll also find a cluster of supermarkets, atmospheric cafes and shops, as well as Santa Maria Magdalena Church in the heart of the plaza.
