Denia

Denia is a delightful cosmopolitan town located along the Mediterranean coastline, where the sun shines almost all year. Its climate of mild temperatures and its 20 kms of sandy beaches and rocky coves makes Denia an ideal place for family beach holidays.

Situated 110 kilometres from Alicante airport, (approximately 1 hour 20 minutes) and 95 km from the city of Valencia. The town faces north-east, looking out across the sea towards the Balearic islands.

Denia has a sophisticated infrastructure, with a marina offering 546 moorings and a full range of services.

History
The town sits at the foot of a hill crowned by a castle, which was the residence of the erstwhile Marquis of Denia; of note are the towers if Mig, Galliner and Carsell.

The city has well preserved ancient walls and bastions. From the hilltop esplanade there is an excellent view of Denia and its surrounding countryside.

Among the monuments in the town worthy of a visit are the 18th-century church of the Asunción; the 17th-century Atarazanas (dockyards); the cloister and church of San Antonio and the 18th -century, neoclassical town hall building.

Just outside the town you can visit the hermitages of the conquest- Sant Joan (gothic), Santa Paula and Santa Lucía (gothic), constructed in the 14th and 15th centuries, and also the Torre del Gerro (17th C.) located on the cliff next to the cape of San Antonio.

Beaches
Denia enjoys almost twenty kilometres of coastline. To the north of the town, there are beaches of fine sand and shallow waters, such as Les Marines, LAlmadrava, Les Deveses, Les Bovetes and els Palmars, To the south lie a series of small coves along the rocky coast, known as Les Rotes, which is a paradise for fishermen and divers.

Natural surroundings
Denia lies in a fertile plain, backed by mountains. The Montgó Mountain, which separates Denia and Javea, is the major landmark of the area.

Recreation and Leisure
Denia offers a variety of water sports, including: sailing, windsurfing, diving, fishing, rowing, and swimming.

For those who prefer land to sea, there is also an extensive range of activities to choose from: mountain climbing, hang-gliding, mountain biking and hiking.

Golf
Denia has its own 18-hole golf club, located very close to the town, the Club La Sella was designed by José Maria Olazabal. Further courses can be found at Oliva, Moriara, and Javea.

Eating out
There are many welcoming restaurants along the promenade facing the marina. The marina itself has a modern commercial area where you can dine overlooking the moored yachts bobbing in the water.

Excursions
It’s possible to take the ferry to the Balearic islands directly from the port in Denia.

Cuisine
The local cuisine of Denia is typically that of the Costa Blanca, which combines delicacies from both land and the Mediterranean Sea. Many civilizations have lived in this area (Celts, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims), all of which have all left their mark on the gastronomy.
The diet in Denia is a healthy Mediterranean one; the Costa Blanca is rich in fish, vegetables, olive-oil, rice and fruit and the ingredients which are all used to prepare delicious, healthy dishes, such as Paella Valenciana, Arroz Negro (black rice), Arroz al horno (Oven baked rice), Arroz a banda (fish and rice stew), Arroz del Señoret (Princes rice).

Aside from seafood, typical dishes include succulent lamb chops, rabbit in garlic, roast leg of lamb with garlic and fresh rosemary, and home made sausages and black puddings.

If you have a sweet tooth then you will enjoy the local homemade pastries and deserts that the whole region is famous for. Or Jijona ice-cream (Nougat), which is made with the almonds of the region.

Whilst in Denia we recommend you try the local wine selection on offer, especially Jalon wine a which is of high quality with a lovely bouquet.

There are many international restaurants in the town offering a wide choice of different cuisines from around the world.

Climate
Denia enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.

In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination

Denia review

We didn't spend much time in the centre but Denia comes across as a relatively quiet, well maintained and prosperous town with plenty to do if sun, beach and nature is of more interest than 'living it up'! Clearly the natural park, Montgo, is well worth visiting and I understand it's good for walking and, possibly, some off-road cycling. Ferries from Denia consist of simple 'small cruise' ships to Javea and beyond, as well as to the Balearic isles further afield.


Costa Blanca reviews

The beaches around Denia appear to be extensive and are generally clean and suited to swimming, with the area nearest the centre providing more watersports facilities for children and enthusiasts.

Denia review

I love Denia, great atmosphere, great food, fantastic weather and very safe - I travel alone so this is important. I can really relax here straight away when I arrive and I'm always sad to leave.


Costa Blanca reviews

Denia is in the province of Alicante, and they don't clean their beaches regularly. I'm squeamish about seaweed and things like that, but only 15-20 mins out the road is the playa de Oliva. This is in the province of Valencia, which does clean the beaches and they are fantastic.
