Is effectively in two parts; Benissa Costa which is the coastal section separating Moraira and Calpe, and then the Benissa Campo (countryside) which then adjoins the main town of Benissa, which extends from Teulada to Calpe and also leads into the Jalon Valley, via Senija. The town has very much kept its Spanish feel, and like most towns features a weekly open market annual Fiesta with bull running and all the other razzmatazz. There are a number of Spanish restaurants and traditional bars in town, and Benissa is also home to the smallest cathedral in Spain, together with many other fine historic buildings and churches etc. The Benissa Campo area remains very rural in character, with generally south facing slopes of vineyards and citrus groves and many fine old fincas and more modern country houses nestling in the hillside together with a few restaurants and the local (request stop) train station. The coastal area is basically an extension of both Moraira and Calpe, being a mix of private villas, restaurants and shops. There are a number of fine little bays dotted along this piece of coastline several with their own Chiringuitos (beach bars) and car parks. There is a super coastline path from Benissa to Calpe via Puerto Las Bassetes, a charming little harbour, holding just a couple of dozen yachts and fishing boats, and diving, dinghy sailing and surf boarding, together with several bars and restaurants. On the Moraira edge of Benissa is the Ifach golf course together with, tennis courts, bar & a cluster of restaurants.
