Marina de Denia is on the Costa Blanca, a stretch of coastline extending from Denia in the North to Pilar de la Horadada in the South, and includes the major tourist destinations of Benidorm, Alicante and Denia.  

The area was occupied by the Moors from 700AD for 400 years, who left behind a legacy of orchards of oranges, peaches and almonds, as well as hillside terraces and villages.  Today these orchards remain an integral part of the agriculture of the region, and the sight of crops blanketing the hills are famous both in Spain and around the world.

The term 'Costa Blanca', named after the white coasts, has only been around since the 1950s, when BEA coined the name as promotional marketing for the newly launched London to Valencia flight.  Today Costa Blanca is a vibrant tourist destination and attracts millions of visitors each year who come to enjoy its white sandy beaches and clear blue waters, rolling mountains with the medieval towns and villages as well as the famous night life and restaurants.
