Benitachell

Benitachell is a tranquil and picturesque village, originally an Arab outpost, with a stunning
coastline nearby, which is formed by a succession of cliffs of more than a 100m high that descend vertically into the sea. Located towards the northern end of the Costa Blanca, the village is just off the A-7 Motorway, about an hours drive from Alicante airport.

A charming Spanish village between Teulada and Javea, Benitachell has become very popular as a
place to live all year round for many foreigners. Although just five minutes drive to the beach at either Moraira or Javea, it provides the best of both worlds for those wanting a more peaceful holiday.

Several urbanisations surround the old town, the largest of which - Cumbre del Sol, has spectacular
views over the sea, its own little beach, plus modern supermarkets and banks.


Car Hire

A hire car is recommended for a holiday in Benitachell.

Excursions
Places to visit include the picturesque town of Denia, the beachside towns of Javea, Moraira and Calpe.

Terra Mitica is less than 30 minutes away, and is a fantastic day out for all the family.

For the independently minded there are many miles of country roads to explore inland, dotted with little villages and historic towns.


Golf
There are many fine challenging golf courses in the area. Try the Seve Ballesteros designed championship course at Oliva or sample the delights of the course in Javea. In fact there is a great choice of courses within one hours drive of Benitachell.

Cuisine
The local cuisine is dominated by the bounties of the sea. Excellent rice dishes abound.

In recent years many international establishments have opened up, offering more familiar fare for
all international tastes.


Beaches
The stretch of coastline between Calpe and Moraira is home to a number of quiet relaxing bays. The scenery is magnificent; spectacular rocks contrasting with the high mountain backdrop. From many points the emblematic Peñon de Ifach can be seen.Playa La Fustera is a quiet blue flag beach with fine sand.

During the high season there is a Red Cross post, plus rental of sun loungers and children’s activities to keepthe little ones happy. The little beach of Cala Els Pinets is south-facing and made up of small pebbles. You can take part on an excursion from there (on foot) to a magic place called "Mar Morta i Roques Negres", which means Dead Sea and black stones.



Cala Llobela is the smallest and most savage bay of them all; the pine trees reach right down to
the sea and little pebbles form the beach. It’s an ideal place to practice water-sports, as well as simply basking in the sun.



The most important characteristic of the Cala Advocat
beach is the breakwater, where you can moor your sailing boat. There is a small jetty used to anchor sailing boats along the beach. Fishing from the breakwater is very popular.

Climate
July and August are hot months and the rest of the year is warm and mild; making the area ideal for a
holiday all year round.

Moraira and Javea best to visit for holiday shops and beaches. A good buzz about them, plenty of places to coffee and eat.

Benitachell is a traditional Spanish town which is lovely if you want to get off the tourist rat run. We stumbled across a Spanish Festival one morning which was lovely to watch. The 2 restaurants we visited in Benitachell were fantastic; the first was a chinese where we enjoyed a Chinese Banquet including wine for under 10 euros; the second little gem of a restaurant was La Palette, which totally blew us away.

Coast review

Loved the area - never visited before but will definitely go again. Benidorm was a must to see then nice to retreat back to normality! Loved Javea. Moraira and Denia,

Benitachell is small and quaint. We felt it was a great location because it was quiet, but close to restaurants and beaches.

Coast review

Costa Blanca has spectacular beaches, hiking, and exploring caves. Most beaches have a small restaurant or place to sip a beer out of the sun. The water is crystal clear.

Typical Spanish beaches definitely Mediterranean in feel. The area also has a fantastic night-life and is quite easy to get to from the two nearby airports.
