Denia is beautiful

I found Denia purely by accident two years ago when property hunting.Denia has everything a person could want for a great holiday or to live there.It has miles of sandy and rocky beaches.A very pretty seafront and tasteful shops and bars and restaurants.Denia is the very top of the North Costa Blanca.It has great weather all year round.I have been out there all times of year including December and March and even then it was 22c and sunny some days.

Contrasting coastlines.

Denia has a port and a harbour and a great coast road that runs from Denia to Oliva.There are plenty of pretty streets to explore and shady areas to sit and relax with a coffee.Denia has tourism but it is also a working town.The seafront does not have buildings on it as the buildings are on the other side of the road which is great.The main beach is long and sandy and beaches south of the port turn rocky and north beaches are sandy and pebbley.I found south beaches very quiet and unspoilt.North beaches were also very nice.Just a few more buildings as you head from Denia to Oliva.

Denia is historical.

Denia has historical sights too including a castle that overlooks the town and port.It is set amoungst green valleys with orange and almond and lemon groves.Mount Montgo surrounds Denia and you can get great views from the viewpoint.Denia has beautiful gardens and roundabouts all around it.It has good nightlife too which consists of having a good meal and then enjoying a few drinks.There are a few music bars etc too along the seafront.There are watersports available and there are plenty of caves to be explored in the area.But most of all this area is stunningly beautiful.Fantastic coastline.Great walks.Delicious foods.You can catch a ferry to Canary Islands or Ibiza, Majorca too.Something i will do in the future.
That is why I bought a house there.Denia has over 8 miles of coastline.Classy shops and restaurants and a great feel to it.

    Hello Rachel. I satumbled on Denia in exactly the same way and also bought a place there, having virtually given up on Gandia. definitely the right choice :)
