Is a small village in the Costa Blanca with about 5000 inhabitants and is situated between Teulada and Javea. The village itself is located inland whereas 2 kilometres of steep, and at some points almost 100 meter high, cliffs are part of its coastline. This coast is a perfect place for diving as there are many caves to be explored.
This town is accessible from Javea and Moraira as it lays in the middle of the road that combines these towns or over the N-332 through Teulada. When travelling to Benitachell by public transport bear in mind that there is no direct train connection, the bus company ALSA has regular lines passing the town from north and south.
Benitachell is best known for the Cumbre del Sol, the hillside that rises from the Mediterranean waters and that has become a large residential area in recent years. Due to its steep access roads, this hillside has also been part of the Spanish bicycle race “La Vuelta” more than once recently.
With almost 70% of its current inhabitants being a foreigner on a total of just 5000, this town is the 3rd town with the largest percentage of foreigners in the province of Alicante. Of all these foreigners 80% is from the European union, and mainly from England.
