Javea has a selection of beaches, the main one being the popular Arenal, with its shallow and safe waters – perfect for children. The Arenal is a great place to spend a day out as it is backed by a wide range of bars and restaurants and beach shops. The newly laid promenade is perfect for a gentle stroll after a day lazing on the beach before dining in one of the many international restaurants that line the seafront.
At the other end of Javea lies the fishing port, home to many expensive yachts sitting comfortably alongside fishing boats that trawl out to sea to catch fresh fish later sold in the port market and the restaurants of Javea. Alongside the port is a pebbly beach which enjoys views of the port and to the Arenal on the other side of the bay. There are some delightful restaurants at this end of Javea.
Living in Javea means you will have time to explore the less well-known rocky coves and beaches of the Javea coastline. One of the most beautiful beaches on the outskirts of Javea is Granadella, where snorkelling and diving is a popular watersport.
These are the beaches you simply must visit in Javea:
The massive Montgó mountain provides a dramatic back-drop to the town of Javea and rises to a height of 753m (2470ft) and, from the top, on a clear day, Ibiza can easily be seen.
There is evidence that the Montgo was occupied by cave dwellers as far back as 30000 years ago as remains of pottery, bones, coins and cave paintings have been found in the area.
The Montgo has been designated both a natural park and an area of outstanding natural beauty and offers cyclist, walkers, mountain bikers and hikers both easy and challenging routes to climb.
The local people of Javea refer to the Montgo as the ‘Elephant mountain’ because, from the Javea side, it resembles an Elephant’s head and trunk – a cave is the elephant’s eye. The Montgo is responsible for providing Javea with its micro climate, thus providing it with temperate weather conditions throughout the year.
Nudging against the Eastern side of the Montgo is La Plana, which can be reached by hiking from the port or the old town of Javea, or by road.
La Plana offers amazing panoramic views of Javea bay and the valley and, once up there, you can visit the eleven Molins which were used to grind wheat and cereals for the local people and date back to the 16th century. Also on the La Plana is the Monasterio Nuestra de los Angels and the Cap de San Antonio lighthouse.
Many watersports enthusiasts choose to live in Javea for its wide selection of aqua activities. Sailing, kayaking, stand up paddling, surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, and of course just swimming in the warm, calm waters of the Mediterranean.
Having a home in Javea means you will have year-round access to some of the most exhilarating and fun activities in or on the water.
Only through living in the Javea region are you likely to have the time to explore the fantastic scenery. There are walks and cycle routes all around the area, which you can either take as part of a guided group or alone. For more information visit the Javea Tourist Information office at www.xabia.org
Eating al fresco is another reason to enjoy life in Javea. There are a numerous selection of restaurants offering traditional Spanish and international cuisine and suitable for all budgets. You can choose to eat in one of the many restaurants along the Arenal, or visit the old town of Javea, for a more traditional taste of Spain.
During the summer, living in Javea means a taste of real outdoor Spanish life. One of the most relaxing places to enjoy tapas and drinks are the beach bars (chiringuitos) along the road from the Arenal to the Port. This is the perfect location to take in the sunset, the moon rise over the sea or a spot of people watching!
Not to be missed are the many Spanish fiestas that take place in Javea throughout the year. The biggest Javea fiesta is when the town celebrates its patron saint, San Juan, during the summer solstice, on 21 June, when fires are lit, fireworks are let off and there is music and dancing till the small hours.
