Here are 6 lookout spots that will give you an unforgettable view of Dénia!
There are many places to enjoy the Mediterranean city, especially from the secret points that you will discover here. Denia is a city surrounded by mountains and its natural viewpoints are wonderful.
From experience, any time is good to visit these hidden places, although we always recommend enjoying the sunsets and sunrises. In these moments you can enjoy an idyllic image of Denia with the Mediterranean Sea to the horizon and the colors that these golden hours give us.

La Cova de L' Aigua
To enjoy these views you will need sportswear since the cave is located in the rocky walls of the Montgó mountain. We can also enjoy a wide variety of plant species and a bit of history, since there is a Roman inscription from 238 A.D., in the time of Emperor Maximino the Thracian (235-238 A.D.)
We can access from the Ermita of Pare Pere. It has a medium-low difficulty and the total journey (round trip) is 3 hours.
Els Molins Los Molinos
To arrive from Denia, you need to take the road from Denia to Javea CV-736 (Les Planes). Once you arrive at the top, turn left towards the road of Cabo de San Antonio CV-7362, about 150 m we will find the road called Camí del Molins. Everything is marked very clearly. It can’t be missed!
El Cabo de San Antonio
From Els Molins, we return to the road of Cap de Sant Antoni CV-7362 and, at the end of the road, we will find the viewpoint. The Cape of San Antonio is located at 160 meters height. It’s part of an extension of the Montgó massif. Not only the views of Dénia and Jávea will take our breath away, but its interesting vegetation, the impressive lighthouse and the views over the land and the sea make the small detour worthwhile.
El Pueblo Fantasma
“A horror movie viewpoint. ” Be fascinated by a town inhabited by graffiti, rubble and demolished houses. You will want to live in one of those abandoned houses when you look out the window and see the Montgó in its maximum brilliance on one side and the Mediterranean Sea with the Torre del Gerro on the other. We recommend going at sunset, or at night time for the bravest.
