Denia is a thriving, working coastal town in the province of Alicante, part of the Comunidad Valencia, on Spain's Mediterranean coast. With a population of around 42,000 it is located halfway between the cities of Valencia to the north and Alicante to the south (approx 95km each way). Both these cities have busy airports offering budget travel from the UK and the rest of Europe throughout the year. For road travel the main eastern motorway (AP-7) passes by Denia from the north and the south. It is also the main hub for travel to the Balearic Islands via ferry (Ibiza is approx 60km off the coast of Denia and can been seen on a clear day).
