Javea (or Xabia in Valenciano) is situated on the most easterly point on Mainland Spain at the northern end of the Costa Blanca, approximately 100kms from Valencia and 90 kms from Alicante. It lies between the Capes of San Antonio and La Nao, on the northern section of the Costa Blanca.

PoolOften referred to as the jewel in the crown of the Costa Blanca, with good reason, Javea has been voted 'environmentally near perfect' by the World Health Organisation. 320 days of sunshine a year might have something to do with that!  It is lapped by the Mediterranean Sea, and sheltered from the continental winds by Mount Montgo.  The coastline has scenic rocky coves, dramatic cliffs and wonderful beaches, many with blue flag status. The countryside is surrounded by an abundance of orange and lemon groves, mountains and valleys.

Local leisure facilities include tennis, bowls, golf, water sports, horse riding, go karting and hiking.  The modern Yacht Club (Club Nautico) in the marina has 300 berths and every water-sport imaginable can be found. Swimming, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, water-skiing, jet-skiing, snorkeling and fishing are all available and much more. By car, Javea Golf Club is fifteen minutes away, La Sella Golf 40 minutes, Moraira Golf 40 minutes and Oliva Nova Golf 45 minutes. Local bike hire is available for easy pottering to serious racing. There are several scenic coves nearby. Grandella, with its crystal clear waters is a favourite for scuba diving and snorkeling as is Portichol. There is even a naturist beach at Ambolo.  Wonderful for sight seeing! On a daily basis there are weekly markets in many of the villages and towns offering a variety of stalls from fresh fruit/veg, olives, cheeses, meats, clothes, shoes, sunglasses, handbags, jewellery etc.

Javea consists of 3 separate areas, the old town, port & Arenal beach area.  All have their own tourist information centre with details of nearby places of interest. Be sure to check if there are any fiestas taking place during your stay, these are always well worth a visit. Just watch out for the bull runs.

Javea Pueblo

The town is a typical old Spanish town with narrow streets and squares, a beautiful church & pavement eating places.  This is the ancient town centre steeped in medieval history which has largely been preserved throughout the centuries. The church of San Bartolome dominates the centre of the town. This building dates back to the 15th century. At the side of the church is a beautiful Neo Gothic building which houses the indoor market where you can buy local fresh produce daily. The colourful outdoor market takes place every Thursday in the market place. Javea Pueblo has still managed to preserve all its charm and the town will definitely appeal to those who appreciate Spanish culture and history and want to feel they are in touch with traditional Spain.

Javea Puerto

The port has a thriving fish market, pebble beaches, art galleries, museum, cinema, numerous shops and restaurants.  The local fishmarket in the port opens around 6:00 pm most evenings. As the boats unload their catches they are sold at auction to the various restaurant owners and fishmongers. A selection of the catch is also sold at the shop on the side of the auction house. Fantastic fresh fish and prawns (and cheap compared to UK prices) to barbeque by the pool! As the fishmarket suggests this was originally a fishing community but has now become one of the main tourist centres of the town. Here amongst the modern buildings you will find the ancient quarters of narrow streets with the simple whitewashed fisherman's houses. From the heart of the port rises the majestic structure of the church of Our Lady of Loreto with a roof which imitates the hull of a ship. It is a lively bustling area and just the place to sit and sample the local wines whilst watching the fishing boats bringing in the day's catch. A great place to people watch but if you feel the need to get active, the modern Nautical Club at the marina has facilities for all forms of water sports and there is a large sports centre in the Port.

Playa de Arenal

The Arenal is Javea's blue flag beach where the shore gently slopes into the warm sea. The promenade has a number of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants providing a variety of food to suit all tastes. During the evening in the Summer months, you will find various stalls here selling a variety of handmade crafts. Many of the bars have live music and there are several discotheques for those that like to dance the night away.  People watching and nationality guessing are great sport as is promenading on the promenade but if you get bored with it you could also consider:

  • Pedalo hire from the beach on an hourly basis. 

  • Jetski and boat hire.

  • Windsurfing school.

  • Cycle hire

  • There are many tourist shops which sell all the equipment for the beach and snorkelling etc.

A Little Further Afield

Night swimming?The beautiful city of Valencia with its historic buildings, museums and wonderful shopping centres is only one and a half hours away.  Children and adults might also enjoy a visit to Oceanographic which is a new and huge marine animal park with a fantastic dolphin show.  There is also a science museum in Valencia and if you are there at the right time you might get to enjoy the America’s Cup sailing event or the latest addition to the Formula 1 series, the European Grand Prix.

For the younger members in your party, Benidorm's Terra Mitica (40 mins away) theme park is a must, but you will also find Acqualandia Water park and Mundomar marine and exotic animal park here. Also consider Terra Mitica, a large theme park and Terra Natura which is an animal park.

At Gata de Gorgos (8km) you will find what the local craft industries have to offer - palm leaf, rattan and wickerwork articles.

For a real adventure take the ferry from Denia to Ibiza.  It will cost you some 90 euros return trip and takes about 4 hours. That is for the standard boat, but there is also a fast ferry taking just 2 hours at 125 euros.
