Javea, situated on the Northern part of Spain’s Costa Blanca between Denia and Altea, is divided into three areas much like a triangle, offering different, contrasting environments: the town itself, the port, and Arenal with its fine sandy beaches and coves. The local population is around 30,000. You can reach Javea via the main N-332, a wonderful road along the coastline of the Costa Blanca.
The old town situated 3 kms. inland, has not changed much and is a maze of narrow winding streets rich in medieval history and dominated by the San Bartolome 15th century Gothic church. Enjoy its food market with its stalls full of fresh fish, fruits and vegetables from the region or visit the Rastro – an antique market – in Jalon each Saturday.
The best vantage points are from 14 designated miradors, clearly signposted around the town. You can easily spend the day visiting each one and capture some of the best panoramic views on the Costa Blanca.
The port area is many people’s favourite with a fascinating charm of whitewashed houses, fishermen bringing in their daily catch, and its lively promenade with the bustle of modern shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Playa de Arenal is Javea’s main beach area stretching from the nearby, national Parador Hotel. Here you can stroll along and enjoy the numerous beachside bars and restaurants and as the sun sets, take advantage of the local nightlife with plenty of pubs and discos.
As an all year round tourist centre, Javea offers a wide choice of accommodation such as the Parador (above), spa hotels with suites and bungalows spread out amongst tropical gardens, local camp sites and self-catering villas and apartments.
There are plenty of sports activities such a scuba diving, parasailing, rent a sailboat, sailboard or jet ski at the port, trekking routes to discover in the nearby Parc Natural del Montgó behind the town, the Fuentes del Algar waterfalls in the mountains, a go-kart track next to El Naranjal camping, and local golf courses on the road to Benitachell or at nearby Denia and Moraira. A little further afield, visit one of the Safari Parks at Aitana or Vergel.
Javea offers a magnificent all year round climate with average, monthly summer temperatures peaking at 28º C, with the lowest of 13º C in winter.
The nearest airport is Alicante some 100 kilometres to the south and serviced by the coastal AP-7 coastal motorway. The airport at Valencia is of a slightly further distance to the north.
