Train from Denia to Barcelona
Can anyone give me some advice on the best route / line to take from Denia to Barcelona? I've visited the Renfe site several times but must admit I am finding it quite confusing (trying various lines - Arco, Altaria, Estrella, etc. but nothing seems to get me further than "No direct route"). Additionally, Renfe doesn't list a station for Denia so I've been using Gandia as my departure station as I believe it's the closest to Denia... am I correct in that assumption?

RE: Train from Denia to Barcelona
Yes Gandia is the closest RENFE station, this map may make things clearer: http://bueker.net/trainspotting/map.php?file=maps/iberian-peninsula/iberian-peninsula.gif
While there is a railway station in Denia, it is not part of the RENFE network and the line goes South, not North. Also, there isn't a direct train to Barcelona anyway, you will have to change in Valencia, and according to my information (Belgian railways, which covers the whole of Europe), there is only one possibility a day, which is:
Dep. Denia 15:38 arr. Valencia Estacio d.N 16:28 (Alaris - final destination Madrid)
Dep. Valencia Estacio d.N 17:15 arr. Barcelona Sants 20:41 (Talgo)

This is my experience of opening hours in Denia.Most supermarkets and banks shut for siesta where I went to.
Worship-If you visit a church remember they are not tourist atractions and places of worship.Act sensible and dress respectfully.
Rest Rooms.Public loos are rare outside big tourist resorts.But all bars have them and the owner will not mind yoy using them.Carry loo roll with you as it may be in very short supply in some loos.
Absolute top quality
I have been to this place several times and never been disappointed. The food is of excellent quality and is presented beautifully. I have had several different meals including Rack of lamb in port wine, lobster, a lovely starter of cauliflower croquettes, soup and a few other things.
ive also been for breakfast and the Dolce Vita breakfast is verry good. Lots of fruits, different breads and cheeses and chocolates spread!!
My husband had an English breakfast which was also good
In summer it gets very full and you can also sit outside, in the winter months its just inside. Rack of lamb in port wine sauce is as good a dish as ive eaten anywhere.
Take a hike
The costa Blanca,north has loads of beautiful coastal walks.Altea,Calpe,Javea,Denia and Oliva all have beautiful coastlines.Very natural and unspoilt and very mountainous.Do drive from Altea to Oliva as the scenery along this coast road is well worth seeing and you can always stop off at one of the many bars,cafes that you will pass along the way.
Vergel Safari Park-I had a great day out at El Vergel safari and wildlife park.Its about 4 miles from Denia.It has animals galore,a good dolphin show,childrens amuzements and a bar and resturant.You can drive your car through the lions and then walk around the park and see a huge variety of animals.There are prett gardens and plenty of places for snacks and drinks.
