Geographical location

If you were looking for the light of the Mediterranean, welcome home

Benissa is located in the north-eastern part of Alicante province, in the Valencia region of Spain. It belongs to the Marina Alta district, and it has a history spanning millennia, from Iberians to Christians, from Romans to Arabs, which translates into a rich cultural and culinary legacy and into the open, sociable nature of its inhabitants. It has approximately 11,000 inhabitants spread across the city proper, which is 275 metres above sea level, and the 70 km2 surface of its municipal district, which boasts 4 km of coastline with crystal-clear waters and the imposing Bèrnia mountain range. To these striking contrasts in its landscape we must add its exceptional Mediterranean climate, with over 300 days of annual sunshine and a yearly average temperature of 19ºC. As you can see, it is a privileged enclave in which colours shine ever brightly, and where any season is the right season to discover its Mediterranean essence.
