To stroll through Benissa is to enjoy narrow cobbled streets with a distinct medieval flavour, latticework inspired by the Moors, and the aristocratic grace of its ancient mansions.

It is, in short, an opportunity to savour history and ancient customs.
The fact is that Benissa has managed to take good care of its urban centre, in which numerous buildings and monuments are ours to admire: The Cathedral of La Marina, the Museum-House of Abargues and the dependencies of the University of Alicante where multiple exposures happen.


And if you like sport, then Benissa has all manner of facilities that will allow you to enjoy horse riding; and golf in a spectacular landscape on the Club Golf Ifach. 
Not to mention Benissa's snorkel routes that are famous on account of the diversity and the colours of its underwater species and for its beautiful underwater meadows of ocean posidonia.

Let's not forget about the beaches.

Benissa offers its visitors six beaches to die for. Les Bassetes bay offers an idyllic view of the Peñón de Ifach in the background, L'Advocat, easily recognisable by its breakwater, is fantastic for those who can't live without their aperitif in a "chiringuito".
Looking for fun? The Baladrar cove, with its green pine trees that stand in marked contrast to the intensely blue sky and the sea, puts on live music in its open-air restaurant.
And if you would rather go somewhere a little more intimate, you should visit Llobella cove: it may be small, but it's quite unique.
