1. There are no high-rise hotels

Unspoilt by tourism, staying in a private villa in Binibeca is about as relaxing as a holiday can get, with your own private pool, garden area and just a short walk to the local amenities.

2. Binibeca has a small commercial centre

Binibeca Vell, which is to the west, has a selection of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and little shops so you have the option of either self-catering in your villa or trying some of the local cuisine out.

3. There are lots of water sports/activities on offer
