Activities in Benitachell

Cala Moraig: This cove of about 500 meters of stone and sand is one of the most beautiful corners of the Costa Blanca for many visitors. This little paradise is hidden in Benitatxell, between Moraira and Jávea. The views are fantastic and its crystal clear waters are ideal for those who want to take a dip in the Mediterranean or snorkel. In summer they set up a small beach bar to eat or have a drink. To its right is the famous Cova dels Arcs, one of the most photographed spaces on the Costa Blanca. This cave has 3 arches and a diving route with different galleries.

Cala Llebeig: The cove is made of rock and skittles, with a length of 120 meters and a width of 10 meters and it has been declared a flora micro-reserve. Following the path that descends through the Barranco de la Viuda, we arrive at Cala Llebeig, whose access is only possible on foot or from the sea.

At the entrance we find the remains of the old police station surveillance post, from where tobacco and fabric smuggling was controlled.

We can also see fishermen's shelters that are still used today.

Natural Spaces

Puig Llorença: The Sierra de la Llorença is a small and narrow mountain range located between Cabo de la Nao and the tip of Moraira. It extends for approximately 5 kilometers and constitutes the geographical continuation of the Cabo de la Nao to the south, separating the Poble Nou depression of Benitatxell from the sea. Its maximum height is Puig Llorença, 440 meters, located at a horizontal distance from the sea of ​​1.5 kilometers. From its summit you can see a dreamy landscape on clear days: the island of Ibiza, the island of Benidorm, the Cape of San Antonio, La Nao, Ifach, Albir and almost the entirety of the Marina region.

To discover the interiors and the views you can try the Camí de la Serp - Puig de Llorença - Cala Llebeig; of an estimated time of 3 hours.

Benitatchell - Cala Moraig Trail of about 4.4 kilometers and 1.5 hours long. It is almost impossible not to have to stop several times to enjoy the spectacular views and take some photos. The first section is a long path with little incline along the cliff. It is quite easy to walk on it in addition to that it does not have any danger. Little by little the narrowest path is made and you will find three caves or hiding places among the rocks, which are called Cova de les Morretes, Cova del Ti Domingo L’Albiar and Cova de Pepet del Morret.

Typical sweets of the area: In Benitatxell, as in the nearby towns, you can try the typical sweets of the area, most of them based on flour and with products from the area. Some examples are Pastissets, Buñuelos, Caspell or Mones. Caspell is a sweet that combines a simple paste of flour, oil and sugar with almonds and muscat raisins. Surely, they are one more example of the inheritance of the Moorish culture settled in the region for centuries.

The fritters or "bunyols" in Valencian are a typical sweet also from the municipality. Artisan circles with a hole in the middle are made from the pumpkin and flour, handmade. They are served accompanied by sugar or chocolate for dipping. Donuts are typical of any family or friends gathering, formerly very typical on Saint Joseph's day.

History and Heritage

The Poble "Nou" of Benitatxell: "New Town" in Valencian. Various prehistoric, Iberian, Roman and Andalusian sites testify to the occupation of the territory throughout these periods until reaching the Catalan-Aragonese conquest in 1244. The historical vicissitudes led to the abandonment of the Alquería de Benitatxell which was founded and repopulated to achieve the status of an independent municipality in 1698, hence the name "Poble Nou de Benitatxell".
