Dénia is a small tourist city located in the southeastern coast of Spain, to the north of Alicante province. It has a population of around 40,000 although this can be more than doubled by tourism during the summer months.

Dénia is equidistant to Alicante and Valencia and both airports are very well serviced by numerous major and low-cost international airlines, so arriving and departing is really easy and because of the competition is not expensive. Both airports are approximately 60 minutes travelling time straight down the A7/E15 autopista.

Get around

By bus

Dénia is right on the coastline of the Costa Blanca - the White Coast. On one side is the Mediterranean sea and to the other distant mountains - the Montgo (around 650 m) which is now considered a nature reserve thanks to its Mediterranean flora and fauna. It has also some interesting caves like La cova de l'aigua. The drive over the mountain from Dénia to Javea is stunning with amazing views.

As said before, if you do scuba diving or just snorkeling then rocky beach is the place for you. Over there you can see all kinds of Mediterranean fishes, squids, octopuses, sea urchins, etc. If you want to relax and sunbathe then the sandy beaches are wonderful.




There are many apartments & penthouses which can be rented as well as small hotels.
