					Costa Blanca Holidays in Denia
When choosing a Costa Blanca holiday most people opt for a resort with
wide sandy beaches, plenty of bars and restaurants, and good hotels,
villas and apartments. Another very popular option is a golfing holiday
and the Costa Blanca has many such courses to choose from, but what about
if you want both types of holiday?
Denia in the northern part of the Costa Blanca is able to offer both
types of holiday. Denia itself is built on the coast at the foot of the
Montgo Mountain. The lower slopes of the Montgo, or elephant mountain,
are lined with self-catering holiday villas with impressive views over
Denia and out to sea. Many of these are available to rent and make an
excellent base for a beach or golfing holiday.
The 18 hole La Sella golf course is the closest course to Denia. The
course itself is set in the grounds of the five star Denia Marriott
Hotel. If you want to try out different courses then the Olive Nova golf
course is a little further up the coast towards Valencia (a city that is
worth visiting in itself). The course was designed by the international
golfer Seve Ballesteros and provides a challenge for golfers of all
standards. There is also the Javea Golf Club, Ifach Golf Course near
Calpe, and the Club de Golf Don Cayo near Altea, all within an hour's
drive of Denia.
When you want a rest from the golf courses, you can enjoy the Spanish sun
on Denia's 20km of beach. With this amount of sand overcrowding is not
something that you will need to worry about, and you are always within
easy reach of a beach bar or restaurant catering to all budgets. You can
choose between rocky coves or long wide stretches of sand. With all this
choice, it is like sunbathing on a different beach everyday.
Many of the car rentals companies have offices in Denia, so if you did
not rent a car at the airport you can still pick one up locally to
explore the local countryside or visit one of the golf courses.
For holidaymakers who would rather not drive themselves, Denia is ideally
placed for public transport. Denia Port has a number of ferries and boat
trips to take you to other Costa Blanca holiday resorts such as Benidorm,
Altea, Calpe and Javea. Larger ferries can take you to the Balearic
Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera.
While on the subject of transport, getting to and from Alicante is very
easy from Denia. Just over the road from the Port is the Railway Station.
Trains regular run from Denia to Alicante, and you can use the trains to
visit other towns in the area such as Calpe, Altea and Benidorm.
Shopaholics will love Denia. The main shopping street and all its side
streets can take a whole day to explore with their department stores,
boutiques and pavement cafes. For an even bigger choice, you can take the
train to Alicante, but it is best to go early to have enough time to
explore the city.
No matter where you are in Denia you cannot ignore the Castle with has
protected the town since the 11th century. Inside are a number of
museums, the Church of the Assumption, and views over the sea and the
surrounding area.
If you family cannot agree of what type of Spanish holiday you want
between golf, beach, shopping, culture, then try Denia. It has all these
things in abundance to keep you whole family or group happy during your
Costa Blanca holiday.
