The town of Denia is a pretty and charming city in the province of Alicante Spain, on the Costa Blanca, halfway between Alicante and Valencia.
With about 45 000 habitants, Denia not only make their living from tourism, it is still a working port. The old fishermen's quarter preserves its delightful cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings but nearby you'll find from Denia harbor there are daily connecting ships going to the Balearic Islands: cosmopolitan Ibiza, beautiful Palma de Mallorca or Menorca, peaceful Formentera, and all the remaining islands.
Denia has a warm and temperate climate with a mean annual temperature of around 20° centigrade. Temperatures generally range from a low of around 5° C in the winter to a high of around 40° C in the summer months.
The Denia city also serves as the northern terminus for a picturesque metre gauge railway line through the mountains from Alicante (popularly known as the Limon Express), run by FGV.
Denia has more than 20 kilometres of coast. In the north the beaches are sandy, and in the south they are jagged and covered with rocks, like the beach of Las Rotas with its numerous great and beautifull bays and spots. Every year, the European Union awards the blue flag to these beaches for their cleanliness and good equipment.
Denia is home to a castle located on a rocky crag overlooking the city. You can park on the outskirts of the town and walk through a tunnel under the castle into the main shopping centre.
Along with some Denia hotels, you will find many bars and little restaurants. Or if you are looking for a golf course or Denia golf club around, please look at our Denia golf course.
