  Last pic was north beach- This pic is rugged South
by rachel_sun

La Almadraba is the only rocky beach to the north of Denia.This is where people do Octopus fishing.I really enjoyed walking along the south beaches as it was so peaceful.There are not any shops along the prom(south- past port) or anywhere to eat and i supose that's why it stays quiet as most people prefer the north beaches and beaches the other side of the port as there are places to eat and drink etc.The walk takes you along the prom for about one mile and then onto gravel and then onto a road that runs along the sea.There are small one story houses hanging on the cliffs and then a restuarant that looks more greek than Spanish.Hellios bar- rest had wonderful views and it had some Octopus hanging out to dry.This area was really beautiful.The food was really good.This place was popular with local people.The seating was right on the edge of the small cliff.If you carry on walking you reach another restuarant which was very nice and done great paella and then the road carries on about another 5 minutes to a dead end.This part of Denia is the place to go for relaxing and get away from it all.It was stunning.All in all the walk from the car park( free parking) just past port to the end of the road was about a mile and a half each way.I really enjoyed it.Next time i am going to take a picnic and go for the day.There are benches along the way and garden areas and places to find shade.The beach runs the entire length of the walk.The beach next to Hellios is rocky and had good rock pools etc.
