ACTIVITIES IN DENIA
It offers history, culture, sport,
wild nature, beaches, and much more...
Denia is well-worth exploring and enjoying.
Denia also has a beautiful old fishermen neighbourhood, Baix la Mar, which is a gorgeous, historic maze of narrow streets, little squares and cosy cafes.
BeachesA long sandy beach, popular with the Spanish locals and foreign tourists alike, runs along the town front of Denia and becomes rockier further down the coast. The crystal-clear water invites you for swimming, diving, snorkeling and kite-surfing.
HarbourThe historic harbour of Denia is buzzing with life, full of exciting and varied boats, and sea-side restaurants. Daily ferries (car access) to Ibiza and Formentera allow easy trips over to these wild and beautiful islands.
Montgo Natural ParkThe Montgó mountain and surrounding area, is an impressive Natural Park, with the mountain seeming to rise high from the sea and touch the clouds which frequently crown its peak. The mountain and the forested park below have an amazing wealth of plant and animal life, and the mountain has become a symbol of the great biodiversity of the region.
Walking – Hiking - BikingTaking different routes around Montgó you can enjoy the local flora and fauna, the panoramic coastal views of the local area, and even the islands of Ibiza or Mallorca on clear days.
