Enjoying nature in Dénia

Summer is finally here, the good weather, the long days and the vacations to enjoy them.

The main option to enjoy the coming months are the many beaches and coves that we have at our disposal in Denia, but our city offers ideal plans for active tourism and in contact with nature.

The natural park of Montgó

The Montgó is a 753m high mountain flanked by Dénia to the north and Xàbia to the south.

Declared a natural park in 1987, it has an extension of 2117 hectares where more than 650 species of flora and more than 150 species of vertebrates can be found. It has also hosted human settlements throughout the centuries, from the Upper Paleolithic through Iberians, Romans and Muslims.

There are several hiking trails that run through the natural park with different levels of difficulty to get to know the most important and beautiful remains and sites of our environment.

Cabo de San Antonio Marine Reserve

Cabo de San Antonio is part of the Montgó Massif Natural Park and the marine reserve located at its foot protects a transition zone between the low, sandy coasts with detrital materials of the Gulf of Valencia and the cliffs of up to 150 meters.

 

The Natural Reserve is a protected area of high ecological value that occupies 900 hectares with species such as corals and posidonia oceanica meadows. Sea turtles, dolphins and whales are some of the marine species that frequent the reserve, as well as birds such as the peregrine falcon, the shag, the osprey, etc.

 

The Marine Fishing Reserve is located within the area of the Natural Reserve, where fishing and the collection of marine organisms, flora and fauna is prohibited without the corresponding authorization, and professional diving requires a special permit. El Rubio fish from the Denia fish markets
