The Benissa coastline, on the Costa Blanca, has it all – sandy beaches, hidden coves and impressive cliffs, with a complete range of facilities for water sports, topped by an attractive historic town centre, a series of nature parks and hilltop chapels in the surroundings, beckoning to trekkers and climbers.
