A costal hike during your hiking vacations spain ´el Paseo Ecológico´
This easy hike along the “coast of Benissa” is approximately 6.5 kilometres back and forth. The “coast of Benissa” is written in quotation marks because Benissa itself is not situated directly on the coast. But coast refers to the coastline which is part of its municipality. This entire walk can be completed in about 2.5 to 3 hours, and in spite of the difference in height, is a simple walk. Everywhere you will find easily accessible steps so that the rise and fall is simple. This walk can start at any point, because you are going back and forth. We started at Cala Llobella, a pebbled beach that is not well signposted from the road, however you can follow the signs indicating ‘Platges’ (Valencian for beaches) from the roundabout at the bottom of Benissa. This road is the CV-745, with a T junction at the end with the coastal road going north and south. At this intersection a sign shows the direction of the beaches, and for Llobella turn left, heading north.
After several turns a sign with ‘La Chaca “appears on the right in large letters, here we turn right. This is a typical Spanish narrow path leading to a small beach. At the bottom there is a car park and you can walk back a bit upwards where the signs ‘Paseo Ecológico’ indicate where to go.
