The capital of the comarca Marina Alta, which includes thirty-three municipalities, is also the northernmost town on the Costa Blanca.

Are you looking for a beach that suits your needs? The coastline, that is fifteen kilometers long, can be divided into two parts: Las Marinas (to the north) and Las Rotas (to the south). While snorkellers and divers prefer the smaller coves in Las Rotas, families with children, sunbathers and windsurfers tend to enjoy the wider sandy beaches in Las Marinas.

Do you plan on visiting the city center? You can reach the fortress Castillo de Dénia only on foot. On the top you have a beautiful view of the city and the port.

Would you like to exchange culture for nature as much as recreation for exercise? In the Montgó National Park, which lies between Dénia and Jávea, you can enjoy extensive walks. Are you up for it? Three routes start near the Ermita del Pare Pere.

Do you want to discover the most beautiful spot in Dénia? The sea cave Cueva Tallada can be reached on foot (1,5 kilometers) or by kayak. Do you prefer the former? You will reach the starting point via Carrer de la Via Lactea. Although the walk is not long, it should not be underestimated. Are you going in the high season (June 15 – September 30)? Then you have to book in advance. Don’t forget to bring your snorkel.

Would you like to visit Ibiza? The Balearia departs about twelve times a week. The crossing will take two to three and a half hours.


The market takes place every Monday and Friday (rastro) between 08:00 and 13:30 on Carrer Germans Maristes.

Food and drinks

Are you looking for a great spot with a view of the water? Mala Vita or Republic is the place to be.


With the Bous a la Mar, which takes place every July, Dénia honors the age-old tradition of bullfighting. Participants, who stand in a semi-open ring with the bulls, try to lure them into the sea.
