Each year more, the passage of cetaceans a short distance from the coast of Denia is a phenomenon of nature that starts every spring.

Dénia recorded the highest number of sightings in the entire Comunitat Valenciana during the past year 2016.

In recent years, Dénia has become one of the main enclaves where you can see cetaceans very close to the coast. Dolphins, whales and a diversity of marine fauna can be observed at any time of the year. In the last report of the Consellería de Medio Ambiente on sightings of cetaceans, Dénia was in 2016 the area with more sightings in the Valencian Community, especially those of the common fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus). The season of this species begins in the spring, especially from May, so we must be aware, not only from boats that sail in the area, but also from the coast.
