200 kilometres of sandy coastline, cliffs, coves, resorts and ancient ports, bathed in sunshine – just some the attractions of the Costa Blanca
Its lively tourist resorts are perfect if you enjoy the holiday buzz, while the pretty town of Altea with its cobbled streets, or the walled town of Calpe, are great for some 'down time'.
The Costa also offers a good base from which to explore – discover the mountains, perhaps visiting one of the villages that lie within them, or set off for the city of Valencia, approached via citrus groves and hard to resist with its historic buildings, museums and bustling streets.
In the evening Benidorm Palace, one of the costas’ most famous night spots, is ideal for a memorable night out, or alternatively join the bargain hunters at the other end of the day at Benidorm's El Cisne flea market.
Wendy Woods, Saga Representative at Hotel Port Denia, tell us a little more about Denia.
Your favourite thing to do in Denia?
I love anything to do with history, so my favourite place would be Denia Castle – the views over the bay are phenomenal and the history of the area is fascinating.
The hidden gem you make sure everyone knows about?
I love Jalon Valley. Nestled in the mountains, it’s a lovely part of the region and where a lot of the local wine is produced.
The local handicraft you can’t resist browsing?
Gate de Gorgos, about 11km from Denia, is famous for its beautiful handmade guitars. Whilst you’re there, take a wander around the quiet town to admire the wicker goods they have on show – they have everything from hats to furniture!
Your Denia must-do?
You must try the Denia Bay prawns (Gambas Rojas) – they are absolutely delicious!
