DENIA OVERVIEW

The most significant neighborhoods are Baix la Mar, former fishing district and Les Roques, next to the Castle.

Marqués de Campos Street is one of the main streets, being the commercial center of the city.

Patricio Ferrandiz Street and Paseo del Saladar are other major and longest in the city, along with Miguel Hernández Avenue.

There are many streets and squares known for different reasons. Perhaps the busiest at any time is Loreto Street, where different bars and restaurants with different gastronomic specialties make known a wide variety of dishes at quite reasonable prices.

La Mar Street is also known for its leisurely afternoons, with live music in several of its establishments.

At the beginning of this street, there is the Plaza del Consell, where events and shows are held.

A tunnel begins in that crosses the low ones of the Castle, and arrives at the Round of the Walls. It was built when you had to protect yourself from bombing in the Civil War.

The Port is very close. Nice to see and walk.

In the port area, there is Balearia, the fleet of ferries that make the trips to Ibiza and Formentera. There are also leisure areas with cocktail bars and disco, water sports and a long etc.

Here (in those vicinity) is an exhibition and sale of handicrafts, with a wide variety of items. It is known as hippies and they sell all kinds of crafts made by them, bracelets, earrings, rings and much more. A good place to walk, admire and buy all kinds of handmade products mostly handmade.

Leaving the Port with the sea on the right, there is the tourist road of Las Marinas, with endless beaches, restaurants and leisure.

Towards the other side of the Port, there is the Rotes road and, parallel to it, next to the sea, the Paseo Marítimo. From the Marina La Marina, through the beach of the Marineta Casiana, to the end of the broken, with an unsurpassed seascape and a variety of seabirds.

The Round of the Walls is a street behind the Castle. And it borders the walls that surround the Castle. They are recently restored.

Where is Dénia?

Dénia is located on the east coast of Spain, just between Valencia and Alicante. Specifically, its coordinates are:

38 ° 50′25 ″ N

0 ° 06′31 ″ E

It is the capital of the Marina Alta region, where we find other interesting towns like Javea or Calpe, also very touristy.

How do I get to Dénia?

We will talk about public transport, of course. And the truth is that in this they will not give us a prize for good connections …

Bus: it is the main way to enter Dénia if we do not come in our own car, especially since the train that connected us to Alicante was taken away (the one in Valencia never arrived …)
There is direct connection with the main capitals: Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante …

Alsa is one of the main companies that provide service

Plane: the nearest airports are in Valencia and Alicante.

If you come by road, you will probably arrive here by the AP-7 or the national 332. The entrance to the city from the general road and wide highway with double lane in each direction. With many rotontas (Glorietas), all of them very well decorated. Among them, countless palm trees watching the traffic.

On both sides there are ships and businesses of all kinds, dealers, restaurants, furniture …

Fiestas

How do I get to the Balearic Islands from Denia?

Very easy given that Dénia is one of the main ports of departure to the Islands. Of course, monopolized by the almighty Baleària and its competitors-free rates …

But the boarding area and surroundings have been very cool.

From the bus station there are urban ones that leave you there, but yes, I think only in summer …

You can also use taxis, of course:
