Recommend this page to Google

The northern part of the Costa Blanca has many lovely cities, and Denia is surely one of the loveliest. The Costa Blanca extends from Denia in the north to Torrevieja in the south. The weather in this area is typical of the rest of the Costa Blanca: hot summers, warm springs and falls, and temperate winters. There is very little rainfall in any part of the Costa Blanca, so the city of Denia boasts an average of about 320 sunny days every year.

Since Denia is located between two airports, it is easily reachable. People coming to visit either fly into Alicante or Valencia airport. Each one is about an hour and a quarter drive to the city. Once you are in Denia, you may want to explore the surrounding area by renting a car. There are a number of car rental booths at each airport, so getting a car is no problem, but you should make reservations, especially if you plan a visit during the busy summer season.

Denia is a true Spanish town, and not just a tourist attraction. Staying here, you will get the feel of really living the Spanish life. In the more touristy areas, there are so many foreigners you don't even feel you are in Spain. You can always drive to the larger touristy cities but return to your little corner of Spain. Since Denia is not a tourist town, everything stays open all year long. Visiting off season is not like some other towns where the shops and the bars and restaurants are all closed. Fine dining and shopping are at your disposal at any time.

If you are interested in a spa vacation to relax and recharge, Denia has a number of spas to choose from. You will find them both in the mountain area and in the beach area. Among the many sites to see in Denia, the castle is one of the most interesting. This landmark, built in the sixteenth century, can be toured any time of the year. The views from inside the castle out onto the surrounding region are spectacular.

Nature lovers will also enjoy Denia. The Montgo mountains are situated between Denia and Javea, and are very popular for walkers. You can go alone, but there are walking groups that make the trip much more fun and interesting. They will know the routes to take in order to enjoy the stunning views over the town and over the water.

Denia has a long coastline with 20 kilometers of clean sandy beaches. Denia has even received a Blue Flag award for the quality of the water and the sand on its beaches. If you are a water sports enthusiast, be sure to take advantage of the beautiful water for these. Dive, snorkel or windsurf; you can find many shops to rent from.
