This is a pebble beach facing south from which you can take a short excursion on foot to the well known “Mar Morta I Roques Negres”. “The Dead Sea” (Dead Sea in Valencian) owes its name to a small sea tongue of low level, protected by rocks that protect it from the waves.
It is very suitable for bathing children. Next to the “Mar Morta” we have “Les Roques Negres”, which are rock formations with ferruginous components that give it a unique ocher-reddish hue. In this cove, we have an area that in the times of the middle ages was a stone quarry for Constructions in the Historic Center; You can still see the hollows of the stone blocks extracted then.
It’s a hard one to locate, but you have to go to Cala Pinets, next to the Baladrar cove and once here, you can swim or climb on foot since you only have to go around a few meters to the north. The dead sea owes its name to the species of rock that protected it from the waves, and because of this, the water is not deep.
It is ideal for bathing the kids, or to be soaking without worrying, but, be careful to not slip.
CALA LA FUSTERA
La Fustera is a sandy beach, the sea is normally calm and the beach is easily accessible. In high season it can get busy.
There is a branch of the tourist information of Benissa and in the summer season, there is a lifeguard.
It also has a nice restaurant/bar “Cal y Mar”.
Close to the beach is the “Cova de la Fustera”, a 10m high cave from which one can enjoy a magnificent view of the Benissa coastline and the Peñón de Ifach.
This small bay doesn´t really get overcrowded by people which isn´t something very usual in this area.
It also has a very nice bar-shack a few meters away and hammocks in the shade with great views of the sea.
It is a natural cove of gravel and skittles that always shows clean waters of a deep turquoise blue in an environment where the pines that almost reach the sea stand out.
Hidden a couple of kilometres away from the cove of Cap Blanc, you´ll find the Cala Advocat, which is another precious corner of the Alicante Costa Blanca.
L’Advocat is enclosed between a breakwater and a 47-meter cliff.
The beach, with fine sand and pebbles, has calm waters ideal for swimming. Being semi-urban, the cove is usually full in July and August, so to enjoy it fully, leave it for any day the rest of the year.
CALA DE LA LLOBELLA
This cove in Benissa is little known and a hidden treasure, you can still see pines on the same line of the sea and in August there are hardly any people during the week. This is a cove of boulders, like almost all of here, very suitable for snorkelling and with water as clean and clear as in all of this area.
