Benissa is one of the oldest villages of the Costa Blanca. The municipality has 4 kilometers of coastline and is situated between Moraira and Calpe. There are several nice little bays in Benissa. Some with sand and another with pebble beach. In summertime several “chiringuitos” (beach bars) appear with BBQ and live music in the evenings. Coastal roads meander through vineyards and campo with her fincas and casitas to the village of Benissa itself. During the ride views of the sea, cliffs and palm trees can be seen. The provincial road (N332) hides the beautiful inner center of Benissa. But if you drive towards Benissa’s church with its two towers, you can see the large square with a fountain where all village festivals take place. And there are many! Behind this the narrow whitewashed streets of Benissa can be found, clogged with its traditional Spanish houses.
