What to do in Denia in autumn/winter | Top Plans
Nothing less than an average temperature of 18 degrees awaits you in Denia during the winter. Besides, this is when tourism slows down in the city, so it is the perfect season to calmly enjoy it. Because the sun never stops shining in the Costa Blanca!
Let yourself get carried away in the streets of Denia
Something as simple as taking a walk can become a perfect plan at any unknown city: where every corner hides a surprise. Denia is no exception. Its port, the Baix la Mar district, its history of sailors or the Castle are just some examples. And let’s not forget its urban beaches such as the Marineta Cassiana or Las Marinas.
Ascending the Montgó mountain
The flatness of the calm sea is altered by the sight of its summit in the background. At Sonneil we suggest you follow any of the ascent trails to see part of the Costa Blanca from a bird’s eye view.
Tourism… underwater as well
Water sports in winter? In Denia you can! All you need is a good wetsuit. You will be able to enjoy the green meadows of its sea bed, its colourful fish and its clear waters. It is a perfect destination for diving.
And what about the surface? Try kayaking or renting a boat and live like royalty. Because that is the Mediterranean.
Visit the Cova Tallada
This impressive rock formation that looks like something out of Game of Thrones is located a few kilometres from Denia and borders Jávea. What’s the best part? In winter, tourism gives a break to this landscape… so it will be almost like having it to yourself. We suggest you arrive by kayak or canoe. Don’t forget to suit up!
Other plans to enjoy Denia in winter
- Follow the hiking trails that go to the Cape of San Antonio.
- Walk along the beaches of La Marina, Trampolí and Marineta.
These are just some options if you are wondering what to do in Denia in winter. As you will see, it is the perfect season to enjoy a holiday sheltered by the Mediterranean essence. Because summer is not the only season in which the sun shines in this historic port city.
What to do in Denia in spring/summer | Top Plans
There is no question about the fact that the hot season is the most desirable one to enjoy the Spanish coast. The colours, the atmosphere, the refreshing baths in the Mediterranean sea… these are the best plans to make the most of Denia in its golden days:
Sea, sea and sea
In good weather, the sea is the ultimate place to meet people and have fun. The coast of Denia has beaches and areas for all tastes. To the north is Les Marines beach, the most extensive and well-known. Come early in the morning and take a swim when the water is cooler and before the tourists arrive!
To the south is Les Rotes, the most charming area due to the landscape formed by the small rocky coves, a paradise for snorkelling, since the waters of this area are part of the Cape of San Antonio Natural Marine Reserve. And, of course, you cannot leave without going on a sailing trip. Everything in Denia revolves around the sea!
Walks, on foot or by bicycle
Walks are a perfect option, but we recommend that you take them in the early morning or late in the afternoon, when the heat is down. A walk to the Gerro Tower, a 16th century watchtower that will make you feel like a true sentinel.
In the afternoon, take a walk around the marinas of Marina El Portet and Marina de Dénia and wait to catch the sunset surrounded by boats. Or visit the summer market, next to the fishing port and opposite the fishing district.
And for the more energetic, cycling around the area is very rewarding, and thanks to its easy trails, it is suitable for the whole family. Go to the Alberca river bank, follow the old railway line or simply cycle along the coast. You have tours for all tastes.
Eating… whatever the season
Did you know that Denia’s gastronomy is part of the UNESCO heritage? It was chosen as Creative City of Gastronomy, and we can vouch for the fact that it deserves the award. The Costa Blanca is one of the best pantries in the world, with varied, local and healthy raw materials that come from both the sea and the land. Red shrimp, octopus, tuna, salted fish… tomatoes, oranges, grapes… and, of course, rice.
We could have a different type of rice every day and we wouldn’t get tired of eating it. You can have it dry, like the oven-baked rice or the one with anchovies and spinach (typical of Denia), or you can have it moist, like the one with lobster, or the well-known arroz a banda. The palate does not know about seasons, and these impressive rice dishes know even less about them.
Whether you want to explore its unpolluted white streets going up and down, see the castle in the background or view the city from the Montgó… Denia is a place you have to visit at least once in a lifetime. If you choose Denia as one of your destinations to relax, at Sonneil we offer you apartments in Denia. Because life is supposed to be enjoyed!
