The Costa Blanca is famed for its long, hot summer months, its history as a holiday destination, its ease of access and the wealth of things to do and see, but the North of the region is a bit less known, and most definitely worth having a look at. With the area being serviced by two major airports (Alicante's L'Altet Airport 95km south and Valencia's Manises Airport 85km to the north) and the A-7 motorway which runs the length of the country, it really is so easy not just to get here, but also to get out and about.

Wherever you choose to visit, you won't be disappointed, especially with Denia All Services here to look after you!
Check out a taster of information on some of the main towns we offer our services in below.

If you more information, just drop us an email here and we will be glad to help you out.

 

 

Denia

With about 45,000 inhabitants, Denia does not only make its living from tourism. It possesses one of the most important harbours of the area, with ferry connections to Ibiza and Mallorca, ensuring a steady stream of visitors and island dwellers pass through the town. This and the large fishing fleet have made Denia a very prosperous city over the past years.

Set with Denia castle rising in the middle of the town, the only thing more imposing on the skyline is that of The Montgo, the 'Elephant Mountain'. Now a national nature reserve, it is also a mecca for hikers and cyclists. Denia is also hugely popular to many of the National Spanish Cycling teams who choose the area for its
diversity of terrain, from the steep inclines which take you up and over Montgo towards the nearby town
of Javea, to the flat expanse of Las Marinas, stretching some 8km along the coast.

     
 

Denia castle was built in the 11th and 12th century and offers a wonderful view around the sea, the city and the backlands. Within the castle you will find the Palau del Governador and its museum. Recent additions to the grounds include a new information office and many picnic areas. Just don't forget to take some water up there with you!
Take a stroll along the town main street - Marques de Campo, adorned with its beautiful trees, you can pop into one of the many tapas bars or restaurants in between bouts of shopping. Pop along to the new marina where you will see some stunning yachts, or chill out on one of Denia's beaches.

Javea

Since the 1970s Xabia (as it is also known) has become a popular place for affluent northern European expatriates to purchase property. Around 7,000 British nationals are registered as resident in the area, as
well as many other nationalities. The town's population is now around 30,000, but swells to well over
100,000 by the annual influx of summer tourists, with Spanish tourists predominating at the height of
August. 90 km to the east is the island of Ibiza, which can be seen on a clear day. A boat service is offered
to Ibiza from Denia.
Javea is protected from the harsh winter winds of the north by the massif of Montgo and it enjoys a unique
micro-climate that the World Health Organisation named as one of the healthiest in the world. There are
more recorded hours of sunshine per year in Xabia than in any other place in Spain, making it a popular destination for Northern Europeans during the cold winter months (eg. Apr 22 C Aug 32 C Oct 25 C).

     
 

The town can be split into three distinct areas: the old town, the port and the Arenal:

Old Quarter
The old town was once a walled town to protect the inhabitants from marauding pirates that once sailed this coast and there is still evidence of the presence
of these fortifications today. In the centre of town sits the church of Sant Bartomeu which dates back to the late 14th century. It was listed as a National Historic and Artistic Monument in 1931 and remains a centerpiece of Xabia's 'old quarter'.
There is range of bars and restaurants which serve local and international cuisine.

Port - Duanes del Mar
The port also has a number of restaurants (some on the sea front), a gravel beach and marina. Whilst the history of the harbour stretches back to the 15th century, the first jetty was built in 1871 and it became an important gateway for the export of raisins. The modern harbour was built in the 1950s and 1960s. The nautical club has been in the central area of the harbour since 1963.

Arenal
The sandy beach area is an arc of wide white sand flanked by a promenade of shops, bars and restaurants. During the summer evenings there are a number of stalls selling handmade crafts. Many of the bars offer live music and stay open until the early hours. Sand artists and street entertainers work along the Arenal beach during the summer months.

Gata de Gorgos

Just in between Denia and Javea on the scenic N332 lies Gata - famous for its wicker furniture. Pass through this peaceful little town and you will see loads of shops all selling wicker: baskets, chairs, hats.....It's also got a very famous Spanish Guitar maker, so if you fancy strumming the flamenco, this is where you should go!
Gata has a population of over 5,000 and the village is also known for having an unusually large number of bars and restaurants per capita. Boasting over 30 bars, the most popular are Ca Corder, which is located in the church square, and Ca Patrics, which is located in the Placa Nuevo. The town's fiestas take place during July to honour The Christ of the Calvary, the highlight being Paella Night, where most of the town congregate in the school to cook paella in the open air before being entertained by a band.

     
 

Els Poblets

With a population of around 4000, Els Poblets is a typical little village of the region. Just 8km from Denia, it spans about 1 km of coastline on the Mediterranean and contains the beach of Almadraba.
The average temperature ranges from 11 degrees in January to 25 in July, the average rainfall is 600 mm a year.
Perfect for that quiet break away, yet within easy reach of it's bigger surrounding neighbours.

Originally two towns, Mirarrosa and Miraflor merged into one single municipality in 1971. On November 25 of 1991, by Decree 216/91 of the Council of the Generalitat Valenciana, it was agreed to change the name of the town to Els Poblets, as it was popularly known.
