Vilamoura is located at the centre of the Algarve, in one of the best coastal areas.

Denia

Have you ever been to Denia, located in the charming province of Alicante? It is an extremely popular summer destination, especially during the month of August. The renowned port city is washed over by the Mediterranean Sea, just like Mallorca, and the climate there is fairly warm during the summer season, with July and August being the hottest months. So… who fancies a beach day?! Or better yet, a beach club day where you can sunbathe from a comfy Bali bed with a fresh cocktail in hand. Now that’s what we call experiencing Denia at its best. Oh! By the way, if “beach club day” sounds like a plan to you, don’t forget that Purobeach Denia will be launching this very month of June right along the beautiful coast of the Creative City of Gastronomy.

Denia is, therefore, a fantastic destination to enjoy a holiday during the summer season. There, you can go visit Denia Castle, the beautiful Montgó Natural Park and its many incredible beaches. It’s also important to note that the famous “Moors and Christians” festivity takes places in August. During this festival, locals get together to celebrate and reenact the battles that took place years and years ago between the two cultures. Of course, people are dressed in authentic, traditional garments from the time, and music plays practically all day long in the streets of Denia. If you wish to know a little more about Denia and what awaits you there, we suggest you also take a look at our post about the 3 reasons to visit Denia this summer. Enjoy!
