Dénia seen from the sea

Guided tours through ancient Dénia

It is the coastline that attracts most visitors to Dénia; 20 kilometres of rocky outcrops and hidden coves, beautiful sandy beaches and the bright blue sea. Many visitors frequent this scenic coastline or venture up to the Montgó Natural Park and admire the dramatic views from the summit, but few appreciate the fascinating history of Dénia, or take the time to explore it. Located more or less halfway between Alicante and Valencia on the Costa Blanca, Dénia’s importance throughout the formation of Europe has been far greater than many realise. Through the ages it was colonised by the Greeks, became a Roman naval base, then the seat of the Bishop of Toledo and later even the capital of the Arabic kingdom of Taifa. When the Spanish royals finally reclaimed it Dénia became a strategic trading port handling commodities from all over the world.

Conducted largely via the popular medium of Facebook, La Granadella gained 40,361 votes, ahead of La Coruña’s Carnota beach with 37,166 and Cádiz’s Tarifa-Boloña beach with 20,908.
