Javéa, for unforgettable holidays

Javéa or Xábia?

Jávea, or Xàbia in Valencian, is located on the Costa Blanca in the Comunidad Valenciana and the province of Alicante. Jávea consists of 3 parts: the old village center, the harbor and the Arenal.

In the old village center we still find the typical Spanish narrow streets and beautiful old facades. Here you will find the town hall, the church, the post office, several shops and there is also the weekly market on Thursdays.

The port area is more modern and here too there are several shops and restaurants. In addition, you can walk along the water, eat or drink and of course visit the harbor itself and the fish market.

The Arenal is the tourist area of Jávea, here there is a sandy beach and a pleasant boulevard with shops, restaurants and bars. During the day why not go to the beach and swim in the sea? Then go to eat in one of the restaurants or have a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea. In the summer especially, you can come here and enjoy the atmosphere until the early hours.

Keep in mind that in Spain and therefore also in Jávea, a daily siesta is held, so many shops or institutions are closed at lunchtime from about 1.30 pm to 4.00 / 4.30 pm. However most restaurants and supermarkets are open all day.

Montgo

Jávea is known for the "Montgo" mountain, a 753 meter high rock that can be seen from many places in the village. From the side, the mountain resembles an elephant with an elongated trunk that runs into the sea. Around it is a beautiful nature reserve where you can walk or cycle. The more daring and experienced hiker can even climb to the top, from where there is a beautiful view of the surroundings.

The beaches and bays

In addition to the sandy beach El Arenal, Javea has a beautiful rocky coastline with many small coves and bays. The beaches here are pebbled or rocky and have crystal clear water. Visit La Granadella, Ambolo, El Porticholl or La Barraca and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and experience a wonderful dip in the fresh water.

From north to south there are the following beaches, bays and coves:

La Cova Tallà, La Cala de Pope, La Cala de Tangó, La Grava, And Benisero, El Primer Montañar, El Arenal (the 20 km stretch of sandy beach of Jávea), El Segundo Montañar, La Cala Blanca, La Segunda Caleta, La Cala del Francés, La Cala Sardinera, La Barraca, La playa de Ambolo and of course, La Granadella, chosen as the best beach in Spain in 2012.

The chiringuitos

In the summer there are several chiringuitos in Jávea between the harbor and the Arenal. These are small wooden beach bars along the coast where you can appreciate the sea view whilst enjoying a drink and the cool breeze. You can also grab a bite to eat in most chiringuitos and they are open for a cocktail until late in the evening.

Active

In addition to sun, sea and beaches, Jávea also offers a great choice for active holiday makers. There are of course many water sports available such as surfing, windsurfing, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, water skiing or flyboarding. You can rent a pedal boat, motor boat or go jet skiing.

For the sporty holiday-maker there are volleyball nets on the beach, tennis courts and some gyms. Furthermore, Jávea has a beautiful natural area where you can walk, cycle, mountain bike, mountain climb. There are also several walking and cycling routes.

Golf enthusiasts can indulge in the surroundings. With the pleasant climate golf can be played almost all year round at the 9-hole golf course of Jávea, the beautiful 18-hole golf course of La Sella in Denia or at the 18-hole golf course Oliva Nova Golf.

Food and drink

There is something for everyone on the El Arenal boulevard. Here you will find several restaurants that offer both meat and fish dishes as well as pizzas, pasta or hamburgers. You can eat at a Spanish, Italian, Mexican or Sushi restaurant. Tapas and paella's are also on the menu in various restaurants on the Arenal.

In the "puerto", the port area of Jávea there are many cozy and atmospheric restaurants. With freshly caught sea fish, the fish dishes are particularly recommended here.

Walking through the small streets of the old town you will find fantastic restaurants or typical Spanish bars where you can eat tapas or a complete 3-course meal for great value. The Spaniards like to eat a "menu del día" at noon.
