Enjoying one of the most picturesque settings on Spain's beautiful Costa Blanca, the village of Benitachell has charmed its way into many a visitors heart. It is a magical place where forest meets sheer cliffs, dropping over a 100 metres into the waves below where visitors will find a pleasant mix of tranquil bays, stretches of sand and pebble beach and rocky coves.
Lying about 5 minutes inland from the coast at Javea or Moraira, the village offers a relaxed atmosphere for holidaymakers and has become home to a large foreign population who have fallen for its charms. Made up of the old town and several surrounding residential areas, Benitachell boasts good local services, shops and supermarkets and enough bars and restaurants to keep the ever increasing residents and holidaymakers happy.
Beaches & Surrounds
Closest to the village and offering easy access is the popular Moraig Beach, with good amenities and a pretty wooden beach bar. Nearby Cala de Llebeig Cove is a scenic area for snorkelling and the larger Playa de la Granadella and Cova del Llop Mari offer further swimming, sun bathing and water sport options. All around the jagged headland towards Javea are scattered coves backed by stunning cliffs, perfect to enjoy a peaceful day relaxing or get below the waves for a scuba diving adventure.
Nearby are the seaside towns of Javea and Denia with further fantastic beaches, lively marinas and an number of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Lying in the foothills of Montgó Mountain between the two towns, keen golfers can enjoy a few rounds at the Denia Marriott La Sella Golf Resort & Spa where excellent facilities and fine dining await the more discerning visitor. Montgó Natural Park and the mountain itself offer wonderful hiking and climbing among the many nature trails, gorges and cliff faces.
The superb attractions, long golden sand beaches and legendary nightlife of Benidorm are just a 30 minute drive from Benitachell and are one of the highlights of choosing to stay in this endearing village that really does offer the best of both worlds on the sunny Costa Blanca.
