What to see in and around Benitachell?

The coast of Alicante is full of pretty villages with spectacular scenery, and Benitachell is undoubtedly one of them. It is a small village with a lot of charm, but it is not on the coast, you will have to go a few kilometres inland to stroll through its narrow streets and enjoy the feeling of peace and nature provided by its almond and grape crops. We recommend visiting it in February to observe the beauty of the fields in full bloom.

In this town, as well as being able to enjoy incredible beaches, climbing and hiking are also very popular. There are plenty of routes to enjoy breathtaking views while exercising in nature. 

Without a doubt, this small town located between Jávea and Moraira and with only 12 square kilometres, is worth a visit, and if you do the route of the viewpoints, it will become one of your favourite places in the world. Shall we take you?

The coves are one of the greatest treasures of the Alicante coastline, and the three you can find in Benitachell are spectacular.  In just two kilometres, you can enjoy amazing coves, with crystal clear waters and underwater caves.


Los Tiestos Cove

This beach is characterised by its exclusivity and difficult access.  In order to reach it on foot, you have to go through the last stretch of the ravine of hell. It is a stone wall that you will have to descend with the help of a rope that you will find in the mountain. Due to the difficulty of the descent, we recommend that you do not carry more than one backpack, and if you can, bring your own climbing equipment or at least good footwear.
Another way to reach this cove is by swimming from the Moraig cove or by boat.
It is certainly worth the effort to reach it and enjoy a little peace and quiet in this secluded and isolated spot.

Moraig cove
This is undoubtedly the best known and therefore most popular cove in the area. It is a beach of intense blue, cliffs and sea caves that make this place exceptional. But as with the previous beach, access to it is somewhat complicated. As it is again between cliffs, it is not possible to reach the beach by car. You will have to leave your car in the car park just before going down to the cove and either walk or wait for the free bus provided by the town hall to get to the cove (July, August, September).

It is a small gravel beach with transparent waters, ideal for bathing and diving, characterised by the cleanliness and quality of its waters.

 In addition to the attractions of Cala del Moraig itself, there is the "Cova del Arcs" (Cave of the Arcs), a marvel of nature and the gateway to the Moraig Underwater Route. Access to the cove is via the Cumbre del Sol residential development, along the General Playa road, signposted from the entrance to the development. In addition, from this cove there are several signposted hiking routes that offer access to the other two coves in the village.

Cala Llebeig

Another unspoilt cove, with no tourist services, but with a special charm. It has a rock and gravel beach, three small buildings, which do not break the aesthetics of the place, and some caves fitted out to store fishing gear in the past. It is another hidden gem that can be reached by taking a stroll. It is neither complicated nor difficult, but we recommend that you bring trainers and a bottle of water for the journey. 

This small cove with crystal clear water is located between the border of Benitachell and Teulada-Moraira. It can be reached by sea or on foot via various hiking routes, such as the Cliffs Route, which goes from Moraig to Llebeig Cove. You can also find it on other routes such as the Ruta del Portet de Moraira to Llebeig Cove, we can say without a doubt that Llebeig Cove is a natural paradise in the Mediterranean.

What to see and do in Benitachell?
