The Muchoviaje magazine (Year V no. 61) has this month published an article dedicated to the Top 20 Best Beaches where you can hide this summer, a selection of beaches on the Iberian Peninsula which includes the Moraig Beach in Benitachell (Alicante).
The article reads: “Having lost our way through the curves of Cumbre del Sol, this treasure of the Mediterranean Sea appears at our feet as the road drops steeply with a 22% incline. A real gift of the Gods. The cove has a beach bar which is a delight during the week, hammocks to rent for anyone who finds it impossible to lie on pebbles, a mishmash of languages and big jumps from the rocks. But the long lasting memories will be of the translucent waters. “
No doubt a very good description of the Cala Moraig beach that both the residents of Poble Nou de Benitachell as those of the surrounding villages share and are lucky enough to enjoy.
Another highly recommended activity in Cala Moraig is diving or snorkelling as the sea bed is very rich and there is an impressive underwater route that more experienced divers can follow, which starts from the Cova dels Arcs, located next to the Moraig Cove.
