You are in the Marina Alta region, north of the province of Alicante. Benissa is one of the municipalities of the Valencia Community and its extension reaches the sea. Benissa coast is dotted with beautiful coves and warm clear water. Also find very near the mountain, the Sierra de Bernia, Oltá, pines, .... Nearby is Calpe, 8 kms, much more touristy and all kinds of shops and restaurants. Its beaches are of very fine sand and are dominated by the Penon de Ifach, which you must not miss. An excursion to the Rock and enjoy the magnificent views is essential. Further north is Teulada - Moraira. We recommend visiting Moraira, a charming, elegant small town to spend the day at the Cala del Portet or l'Ampolla beach. Other nearby resorts include Denia and Javea.
Denia is particularly remarkable for its gastronomy. Hence comes the famous chef Quique Dacosta, three Michelin stars. Javea has a great beach with restaurants and pubs to enjoy the day or you can also visit the lighthouse of Cabo de la Nao.
As you see you're in the middle of a magnificent environment of mountains, beaches, coves, sea and gastronomy only find here in Benissa.
The main celebrations that the town follows with great devotion are the festivities in honor of the Immaculate Xiqueta, which are held on the fourth Sunday in April and last 10 days. They can highlight the free concerts, bullfighting events and the emotional rise and fall of the virgin before and after the procession, attended by many beniseros.
Other notable festivals are the Moors and Christians, celebrated in honor of San Pedro, the weekend closest to June 29.
Besides these two parties, also celebrated in January and Porrat Fair in honor of San Antonio, which lasts three weekends, the last of which a medieval fair is also held.
