Denia is a lively town which has a large port, marinas and a castle. It has hundreds of restaurants, bars and shops and is a focal point for the many fiestas (festival days). In the evening there is an arts and crafts market along the sea front. It also has a weekly market as well as a permanent indoor market where you can buy fresh fish and vegetables.
Denia has a ferry port with trips to Ibiza and Majorca, a fishing harbour and two large marinas as well as 17 kilometres of beaches. This area of the Costa Blanca is very fertile and there are citrus and almond trees stretching as far as the eye can see. It is also recognised as one of the healthiest climates with virtually no heavy industry.
Valencia and Alicante airports are equidistant from the apartment and are both a 90 Km drive (Approx 1 Hour). Unless you want to spend your whole time on the beach, you really need a car in order to make the most of the area. There is however a local bus which runs regularly in the summer along the coast into the town of Denia.
You may choose to take a day out to Alicante, Valencia or Benidorm or spend some time taking part in the many activities which are all nearby.
The lovely city of Valencia, Spain's third city is well worth a visit with many visitor attractions including the Science park and the Port. Alicante is also an hours' drive away. If you prefer you can take the picturesque local train from Denia and stop at any of the local coastal towns including Benidorm and Calpe or continue the whole way and finish in the market place at Alicante.
Benidorm has aquaparks, the Terra Mitica theme park (similar to Disney World) and the Benidorm Palace if you would like a night out dining with a great show.
For golf enthusiasts, La Sella (27 holes) and Olivia Nova Championship golf courses are within a 20 minutes drive and the Championship course of El Saler (in the World's top 100 courses) is 45 minutes away. There are several 9-hole golf courses under 30 minutes away.
You can go to the La Sella Resort, a 15 minute drive away where you can play golf, tennis, go horseriding or go to the local Spa for a relaxing massage. The tennis is at a local club where you can join in their social tennis days.
