Costa Blanca are mainly beaches â€“ long and sandy ones â€“ and so in this sense are some of the nicest on the southeastern coast of Spain.Â Unfortunately, most of the coast is developed with what in many cases are somewhat chaotically constructed buildings, with taller apartment blocks vying for nicer views.Â However, there are also some jewels here and there, and for lovers of minimally more active breaks and beautiful scenery, the cliff walk – Ruta de los Acantilados – in Benitachell is one of them.
The route leads from Cala Moraig to Cala de Llebeig and whilst it’s not particularly difficult, it’s a good idea to make sure that you have some comfortable walking shoes and sun-protection. Along the way, you’ll see breathtaking views, caves and a small, hidden beach.
We did a modified version of the walk in the reverse direction, thereby adding a somewhat unpleasant decent from where we left the car in Cala de Llebeig (we used the instructions found here:Â Wikiloc – Ruta de los AcantiladosÂ )
Our plan actually succeeded the second time around, as our first attempt saw us literally attacked by the rain and so the decent and walk were impossible. Luckily this happened right at the beginning some 2 mins from the car â€“ I can’t imagine this route with slippery rocks underfoot.
