The delightful small town of Benissa is located inland, south of Teulada. It has an atmospheric historic centre with an interesting museum and a well preserved 15th century market hall.

You’ll enjoy finding your own way around the town but you can also join a guided walk organized by the Tourist Office most weekdays.

Benissa is a great place for shopping and famous for its home made sausages which are popular across the Costa Blanca.

Why not stop for lunch in a bar in the old town and try some, best accompanied by a cold glass of beer or dry white wine.

When you’re ready for some beach time, it’s a short distance to the coast and the view as you approach will take your breath away.

Benissa’s 4 km coastline offers small quiet beaches, crystal clear water and great opportunities for water sports.

Some of the most attractive inlets in the Costa Blanca can be found along this stretch of coast between Calpe and Moraira.

The busiest beach is Fustera, which has the coveted Blue Flag, with excellent facilities for children and a range of water sports, including wind surfing and sailing.

There is also a small marina here with a sailing school and a diving centre.

Fustera also has amphibian wheelchairs, ramps and trained volunteers on hand so everyone, no matter what their level of mobility, can enjoy a cooling swim in the Med.

The beautiful Baladrar Cove is worth a visit for its deep blue, clear water and the pine trees almost reaching the sea.

But if you’re looking for complete peace and quiet then La Llobella is recommended for its privacy and seclusion.
