Bus vs. Train travel
Hello, I am looking for locals advice on how to do weekend excursions from Denia, Spain as inexpensively as possible. Should I buy a bus ticket every time I want to go somewhere, or is there some sort of bus pass I can get? Are trains easier? I will be there for 5 months, so the longer something lasts the better...
any advice would be great!
RE: Bus vs. Train travel
I would catch local buses and also get boat ferries. You can go on day trips from Denia on small boats. I am going to Spain soon, Denia, I could find out about tickets for you and post back on here .
Travel Tips for Denia
Bous a la Mar...
Toros a la mar... or Bull to the Sea...or how to run and swim quickly to escape to a fierce bull...
Els Bous a la Mar is part of the festivities celebrating the ‘Santisima Sangre’. The act consists of releasing cattle, which the participants follow in the “entrada”. The tour finishes in a "bull ring" mounted in Dénia's port with one of its sides open to the sea. This way, some of the participants (animals included) end up in the water, later to be extracted by the help of a boat. “Els Bous a la Mar” are celebrated every day, both in the morning and for the evening around July.

Quaint little place hidden away
This is a beautiful little place tucked away in a square behind the main seafront restaurants.
Its quite small and the evening we went it was verry full early on which made us think it was popular.
we booked a table for around 10pm and had a fabulous evening.
Food was first class and the presentation, plates, glasses etc were very stylish.
The pre-meal bread was served with hummous and tapenade and was delicious. 5 of us ate there and everryone was very pleased with their choices.
Cant remember exact dishes cos its a year since i went there, but trust me its well worth a visit.
Nightlife is also good.
Denia has a good nightlife too.Plenty of places to eat and or drink at.The main place for action is the coast road near the port.The restuarants and bars are very tasteful.Good quality.There is a handful of music bars etc too.Hook Bar is one good lively bar and there are a few others along seafront.See my restuarant tips for what places to try.And along the coastroad leaving Denia to Oliva there is a good selection of bars and places to eat along the way.You can simply pull off and walk to them.They are mostly along the road so as you drive along you will see them.Some are set up roads right on the beach which is very nice.Just park up and have a look.There are so many good places to eat and drink.
