6 things to do this summer

In Benissa, you will find the best plans to do this summer. Therefore, we have created a complete program that includes plans with children, guided visits and music.

Enjoy summer in Benissa

Vive el verano en Benissa” is a leisure program to enable you to fully enjoy cultural, sporting, festive, commercial and gastronomic activities during summer targeted at the entire family with the best possible setting: the historic centre and coves and beaches of Benissa.

Guided visits

Throughout summer, we offer free guided heritage visits in different languages (Spanish, English and French) as well as dramatized visits allowing you to discover the strangest places, told in a different way in order to enjoy fun family moments. Don´t forget to register!

Summer festivals

During the summer period you can enjoy the summer festivals of Benissa, festivals you cannot miss!

The night of 23 June is the magical night of San Juan, which we celebrate on the coast of Benissa, although especially on Playa la Fustera. It is a magical night where dipping your feet in the sea or jumping over the beach at midnight are two of the rituals you cannot miss.

At the end of June the Festivals of Moors and Christians of Benissa, festivals declared of Provincial Tourist Interest, fill the town of Benissa with colour, music and the smell of gunpowder.

There are parties in different neighbourhoods of the town and rural districts in settings with a lot of charm, always with a hermitage nearby for celebrating them.

You will find outdoor dinners, pilgrimages, brass bands and lots more each week of summer in Benissa.


Also, if you are someone who likes all kinds of music then you are in luck, as the “Viu l’Estiu a Benissa” (Enjoy Summer in Benissa) program includes music concerts with bands, classical music... A great variety to choose from.

Outdoor cinema

Outdoor cinema is another of the activities you cannot miss in summer. Enjoy an unparalleled setting, bring your dinner and enjoy a delightful evening with the films you can see for free in Benissa.

On Tuesdays, the cinema al carrer (cinema in the street) is screened in Plaza Germans Ivars and on Thursdays, la mar de cine (cinema by the sea) is at Playa la Fustera.

Pilates and Yoga

One of the sports activities included in the program is Pilates with an instructor and also for free on Playa la Fustera, an outstanding setting where you will love to practice this discipline.

If you have never done it, go for it: the beach is the best place to get started.

Grab your towel and come on!


We cannot forget about the gastronomic side of things, and during summer is when we offer gastronomic events such as the food trucks on Glorieta Dolores Piera, and the #GastroExperience where you can carry out gastronomic and musical tastings. An event that is very warmly welcomed.

So now you know, if you don´t know what to do this summer... come to Benissa, you can´t miss it!
