Benitachell’s beach, Playa del Moraig, lies at the foot of a cliff and its seclusion makes this a popular spot for naturists. Its crystal clear deep waters with underwater seascapes make it an ideal spot for scuba diving and snorkelling. El Portet beach is perhaps more family friendly, with the beach gently sloping into shallower waters. In addition, the Blue Flag beaches of Jávea and Moraira are only a short drive away. Here the beautiful sandy beaches offer safe bathing and an array of water sports.
Owning a property in Benitachell means enjoying a more laid back, slower pace of life.

Benitachell’s skyline is dominated by its church, particularly beautiful when it is illuminated in the evening. Benitachell also acts as the gateway to the small valley situated behind the village.

Cumbre del Sol is the largest of these urbanisations and as well as having fantastic sea views and its own beach, it is well served for your day to day needs, having supermarkets and banks.
The fiestas in Benitachell take place in mid July and are well worth a visit. The Moors & Christians parade is quite spectacular!
