A jewel of the Costa Blanca coast
One of Dénia’s most recognisable features, however, is just its sheer beauty. You have the stunning coastline to explore, as well as the historic city itself, along with the surrounding countryside, such as the Montgó Natural Park with its popular hiking trails.
All of this can be explored on foot, by rental car, or by one of the regular excursion services that run throughout the city.
Dénia is also an attractive place to visit because of its typical Mediterranean climate, which sees long warm summers and short yet mild winters, with even January daytime temperatures averaging a comfortable 15 degrees Celsius. So, whichever time of year you visit, you’re guaranteed to enjoy the weather.
