Sailing in Denia
Choosing when to rent your boat in Denia can make all the difference, but the weather tends to be mild throughout the year, with temperatures increasing significantly in the summer months. Due to the town’s popularity in the sailing community, many people choose to charter a yacht in July and August, leading to crowded marinas. It could be preferable to choose to sail in spring or autumn, when the weather is still gorgeous, and the marinas have a little more space. Take time to enjoy a swim or snorkel in the Mediterranean thanks to the pleasant temperatures of roughly 22°C. Denia’s 20km stretch of coastline is waiting to be explored in the enviable Spanish sunshine!

The Imposing Castle
It would not be a trip to Denia without a visit to the historical emblem of the town, which is visible from all points – even your yacht.

Soak up the sun on the beach
An abundance of beaches, coves, and golden coastlines outline the town of Denia and are a perfect opportunity to escape to some tranquility. Marineta Casiana Beach is lively and bustling, with ample space to practice your parasailing, jet skiing, and more. Even better: it is very close to the port, meaning you do not have far to travel from your yacht charter. However, if you want to see truly authentic Spanish coastline that is less crowded during the day, Les Deveses Denia Beach is worth a visit. Sail here to avail of the heavenly turquoise waters and curious flora and fauna native to the area. There are plenty of other locations to be discovered as you sail, so keep your eyes peeled for something unique!

There are plenty of amazing restaurants, bars, and taverns, and the natural landscape is worthy of exploration by foot or by sail.
