Being based in Xalo means there are a huge range of activities right on your doorstep.  We can recommend and arrange numerous fun and interesting activities to do.  Whether it be something active, experiencing some local culture, or just to find the right spot in the mountains with great views to enjoy a picknick.

Cycling & Mountain biking

Our BB is located in the middle of the training area of the WorldTour cycling teams. Unique rides through the beautiful nature on undulating and mountainous roads. We collaborate with various professional companies. Mountain biking is also very popular and you will find a large network of trails and routes.  We have a garage to store your bikes.

Walking & Hiking

There are so many lovely walks in and around the Xalo Valley with terraces, olive groves and ravines with spectacular views or you can choose a rocky coastline between Calpe & Moraira.  We can recommend different routes and provide useful maps.


There are over 30 golf courses to choose from at the Costa Blanca. Golf Ifach (9 holes), with its excellent seaviews, is only 15 km away from our B&B. Other golf courses nearby are in Altea, Javea, Benidorm and Oliva. We can inform you about the different programs they have on offer.

Watersports & Beaches

At the coast between Calpe - Moraira you will find Les Bassetes. For those who want to conquer the sea in a catamaran, on a windsurfboard, in a kayak or on a Sup, this is one of the best places.   There is also a diving club....the underwater world of the coast of Benissa and around the Peñon de Ifach is just spectacular.

Horseback riding

Horse riding along paths where you can enjoy the wonderful landscape and scenery of the Costa Blanca is possible at Club Hipico Benissa. They have a highly experienced team of qualified multilingual Instructors and offer a variety of equestrian activities on their Purebred Spanish horses.


Padel is the fastest growing sport in the world. On a short distance you will find the Padel club of Benissa with 5 excellent courts. Padel lessons by Spanish top trainers can be organized for you.

Markets & Local culture

On Saturday mornings you will find the Xalo Rastro (flee market) for some great vintage curios. On the first Saturday of each month there is a farmer's market "Mercat de la Tierra" in the centre of town. Xalo has several fiesta´s during the year with bull running, processions, wine tasting, fun runs, giant paellas and partying until the sun comes up. Not to forget our tapas and excellent wines.
