Beniarbeig is a rich and prosperous agricultural village, mainly growing citrus fruits, though an industrial estate has recently been opened. Beniarbeig enjoys a privileged geographical position and its prosperous economy has ensured that it is one of the largest villages in the area (1,191 inhabitants). It is located next to the Girona River that flows between the province of Valencia and the Racons ravine. The parish church, the school opposite and the old Ayuntamiento are some of the architectural features of note.
