04 July 2023 - 12: 00

With a coastline of more than 20 kilometers, Denia is a true paradise for sea lovers. In the north, perfect sandy beaches to enjoy with the family. In the south, the rocky coves that open to the Marine Reserve of the Cape of San Antonio and that allow activities of full contact with the seabed.

These are the best beaches in Dénia:

Beach Punta del Raset

It is a sandy beach, like those of the entire area that begins with it, Les Marines, which also has a special landscape and natural value due to the dunes that are generated along its coastline.
