Starting from the Ermita del Pare Pere in Dénia my aunt and I went on a small hike on the southern side of the Montgó mountain. Here, we visited the Cova de l’Aigua and had a look at the Racó del Bou on our way back. All in all, we spend about three hours on the 5,4 km long trail and enjoyed the view down to the city of Dénia with every step. The paths to the grotto Cova de l’Aigua are slim, but still fine for many Spaniards for jogging up and down – a very interesting activity, which I would not even dare to try. The paths in direction of Racó del Bou are harder to walk on, but still easily manageable, although sometimes quite slippery. On this path you can also start your climb towards the peak of the Montgó.
After our morning hike, we drove down to the sea front to have a nice breakfast in one of the countless cafés. We stopped at the restaurant Movida Dénia at Calle del Pont, which I can recommend.
