Book your cheap hotel in Denia
Located in the province of Alicante in Spain, Denia is a historical coastal city that lies halfway between Valencia and Alicante on the beautiful Costa Blanca. With a cultural heritage influenced by Iberian, Roman, Greek, Christian, Islamic, and Napoleonic civilisations, it is fair to say that the city boasts a rich and varied history.
A lovely city that snuggles up to a small mountain capped by a tumbledown Moorish castle, Denia has a native population of around 41,000, but this can more than double in the summer months thanks to the high levels of tourism. There is also huge transient traffic because Denia is major passenger port for the fairly nearby Balearic Islands.
Much of this tourism success is down to the fact that cheap and affordable hotel accommodation can be found in all areas of the city, making it a simple choice for summer vacationing.
