TOP-10 PLACES TO GO WITH CHILDREN IN DENIA
Planning your vacations in Denia keep in mind that it is surrounded by the sea, the mountains and the Mediterranean towns with a wide range of places to visit. Among them there are many places and activities for THE LITTLE ONES OF THE FAMILY. Rentalmare has tested each of them and has classified them for lovers of Nature, Sports and Adventure or History and Culture. We present our TOP-10 list of activities that are worth signing up with your children.
N A T U R E
1. Discover The Coast
Without a doubt, maritime plans are what most attract children on their holidays in Denia. A brilliant idea to enjoy a few hours of the sea and get to know the most picturesque coves with the whole family is to take the mini cruise from Denia to Javea, operated by Mundo Marino. An exclusive excursion by sailing catamaran, with several options of times available both to and from port to port. Our recommended plan is to take the boat at noon from Denia to spend the day in the port of Javea, stroll through its “Promenada Maritim” and discover one of the most symbolic restaurants such as Cala Bandida. The return can be done at five in the afternoon.
DURATION: 50 MIN
DEPARTURES FROM THE PORT OF DENIA – AT 12PM AND 4PM
DEPARTURES FROM THE PORT OF JAVEA – AT 1PM AND 5PM
PRICES: ADULTS €18; CHILDREN 4-10 YEARS OLD €11; BABIES 0-3 YEARS FREE
2. Conquer The Mountain
Both Montgo and Segaria mountains are located very close to Denia. This area is famous for hiking trails for all levels of fitness, from novice to pro.
One of the most recommended routes for the plan with the family is the Camino de la Colonia towards the Camell cave. It is a simple 5 km route with open visibility, low difficulty and an approximate altitude of 190 meters. Upon reaching the end (approx. 1.5 hours) a spectacular view of the entire Gulf of Valencia opens up.
3. Riding Horses
If your child is looking forward to a ride through the countryside or along the beach on a pony or horse, we recommend taking him to the Hipica de Oliva or the Equestrian Center of Javea on a Saturday. Both horse riding schools have a riding school for children from 6 years old and subscriptions for the entire month.

4. Picnic Under The Pines
For adventurers looking for an escape to nature, we recommend visiting the “El Pinaret” recreational area. In addition to a large area of pine trees, the park has a multi-adventure circuit with a zip line and a picnic and barbecue area.
El Pinaret is a perfect alternative to the beach as it has a lot of vegetation and space for children’s games.
HOURS: 10AM TO 8PM – EVERY DAY
SPORT AND ADVENTURE
5. Put The Family On Wheels
Do you share the passion for bicycles, skates or scooters? We recommend you visit the Pump track skate park in Ondara. The length of the pump-track is 120 linear meters, with an occupied area of 900 m². A circuit generally of small dimensions, which can be covered completely with a skateboard without propelling yourself with your foot or with a bicycle without the need to pedal. The rules of use remind you of the obligation to wear a helmet and protections.

Few sports unite the family as much as rowing! In Denia and its surroundings there is a wide range of canoe rentals, kayak excursions or surfboards. Of course, there is a star route organized by OK Aventuras that passes through the Cabo de San Antonio marine reserve between Dénia and Xabia and combines kayaking through the caves with some jumping into the water and a very educational snorkeling route. There you can find sponges, sea urchins, smooth and groupers and with luck some clueless octopus! The route ends by visiting the Cova Tallada where they provide you with a flashlight and explain the different uses that the cave is famous for.

9. Watch Cartoons At Spain’s First Drive-In Movie Theater
Drive In Dénia Drive-In Cinema is a drive-in cinema with a double session of premieres and a bar with typical American Street Food – hamburgers, hot-dogs, pizzas and soft drinks. Located on Les Marines beach, the drive-in theater opened its doors for the first time in June 1979, making it the oldest drive-in theater in Spain.
Over the times, the site has survived many hardships such as hacking or the advent of the digital age. It has been changed and adjusted, without losing the spirit.
