DENIA FACES THE SEA
Denia is situated on the north coast of the province of Alicante and a very diverse coast defines its geographical surroundings. There are numerous cliffs, coves, and extensive fine-sand beaches. Denia enjoys an annual average temperature of 20º C, which offers warm summers and light winters. Approximately 44,464 inhabitants live in Denia and 30% are foreign residents. During the summer, its population can reach around 200,000 inhabitants. Towards the south, you’ll find beaches that are more urban-looking with coarse sands. As we advance in this direction, we come to the well-known area of ‘Les Rotes’ where the coast becomes rough and lush, enticing you to its idyllic coves and transparent waters. Towards the north of the municipality, the landscape changes dramatically. There is where we discover the area known as ‘Les Marines’ and its endless beaches of golden sand. From Denia castle, which was built during the Islamic era, you’ll be amazed by the panoramic views of the town and the commercial port. Sailing boats and ferries transport passengers and merchandise to the Balearic Islands, as Denia is only 55 miles from the island of Ibiza.
