When the good weather arrives, sitting on a terrace for an aperitif is one of the greatest pleasures we enjoy in Spain. But why not do it all year round under the Costa Blanca sun? The Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant invites you to contemplate the wonderful Benissa sunsets while you have a drink or a meal and delight yourself with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Cala de la Fustera is a natural sandy beach surrounded by a natural park, ideal for hiking and diving in a paradisiacal environment. In that idyllic setting is where the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant is located, right next to Benissa beach. This place is a bright space that remains open all year. There you can taste its exquisite Mediterranean cuisine, cocktails, smoothies and delicious homemade sweets, as well as attending various live performances.
The Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant began its journey in April 2014 with the aim of enhancing the value of Cala de la Fustera and offering a catering service at the height of the extraordinary natural enclave where the restaurant is located. From 2014 to 2018 its managers made an effort to consolidate this restaurant within the offer of restoration of the area. For this they made certain improvements, such as the construction of a wooden pergola of 120 square meters and a renovation of furniture. From December 2018 to February 2019 they also undertook the complete renovation of the kitchen, bar and bathrooms, with the intention of offering a more efficient service to their esteemed customers.
Although it is not a place that seeks exclusivity or luxury, the owners of the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant have managed to distance themselves from the concept of beach bar associated with fast food and poor quality to offer a close service and quality food. In this way, the environment of this place is calm and relaxed, especially in the winter months. In summer, despite high occupancy, customers also enjoy a pleasant atmosphere near the sea.
The most outstanding feature of this business is its location, since it is on the seafront in a unique enclave. But aside from nature, another aspect that sets the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant apart is the quality of their products. Its managers try that the value for money fulfils the expectations of their guests. Thus, they look for their clients to come back because they are in a unique beach, but also because they eat really well in this restaurant. The secret of the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant menu is the local and fresh ingredients. With them its chef creates delicious dishes based on the traditional Mediterranean diet. Of course, the specialty of this place is the Valencian rice full of flavour and colour. But if you prefer something more varied, you can choose from a succulent selection of over 30 traditional hot and cold tapas, as well as more intentional options, like hamburgers and sandwiches. In addition, all kinds of homemade cakes, desserts, crepes and pancakes are served throughout the day. Their apple strudel with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream is from another world!
Do you fancy something lighter? At the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant they offer you a complete list of cocktails with or without alcohol, milkshakes and smoothies made with fresh fruits and natural products. You can pick between the most popular cocktails or choose your cocktail based on your favourite drink: whiskey, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, wine, champagne… Your drink to your liking! The most successful cocktail is the traditional mojito, although there are others that are also very popular, such as pina colada and Bahama Mama. In addition, non-alcoholic cocktails, such as virgin mojito and pina colada or San Francisco, are also very in demand.
If you thought it was not enough —as if—, also in high season the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant offers live music at least three days a week. The last seasons have hosted a jazz band, a bossa nova duo and a solo melodic singer. The success of this place is tremendous, so we highly recommend that you make a reservation, especially in peak season (from June to September), weekends and holidays.
Enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Mandala Beach Bar & Restaurant. You will find it just in front of the beach, in Navegant Josep Ribes Street, in Cala de la Fustera, in Benissa (Alicante), very close to the tourist information point and La Fustera supermarket.
