Its attractive seafront and marina bustle with bars and cafés. As the coast curves around the cape, you reach Dénia and its pretty beaches lying at the foot of Montgó Mountain Nature Park. High cliffs look down over the quiet coves and sparkling blue waters of Jávea. Further north is the lively resort of Gandía and its historic old town, long sandy beach and impressive 14th-century castle.
