Benissa Holidays

Benissa Holidays – Pretty hill town base for a scenic region

This well-preserved medieval hill town makes an atmospheric base for an especially scenic stretch of Mediterranean coastline offering a mix of quiet coves and sandy family beaches. The attractive resorts of Calpe and Moraira are just a few minutes’ drive. You are also superbly placed for exploring the picturesque mountain villages and gorgeous scenery of beauty spots like the Jalon Valley.

Benissa has a famous monastery and beautifully restored mansions. Narrow streets are home to traditional shops and stylish restaurants. The town has a reputation for quality dining and has an appealingly relaxed atmosphere in the evening. You have superb walking and horse riding in the mountains, and outstanding diving and snorkelling on the coast.

The little coast train is a great way to visit the pretty resort of Altea and to experience the entirely different scene at Benidorm. Classy rural hotels and apartments offer a relaxing and atmospheric alternative to the beach scene but remain close to the most scenic resorts on the Costa Blanca.
