Javea, Costa Blanca, Spain

Javea Holiday, Property and Tourist Information


The town of Javea is located on the northern shoulder of the Costa Blanca. The town is reachable from either Alicante or Valencia international airports; from both airports Javea is best reached via the A-7 toll road, the overall journey time in most cases taking just over an hour.



With a population of around 20,000 the town is split into 3 portions; namely Javea old town, Javea port, and the beach area. The medieval old town has not changed much over the years; it is a maze of narrow winding streets, white fronted homes adorned with wrought iron balconies and gothic style windows, and many ancient churches (iglesias) and other structures. The old town leads down to the fishing port and harbour; home to a collection of restaurants and bars, many of them serving the catch of the day. The beach area is the site for much of the expansion and development in recent years, with many low rise developments and a slightly more international feel.

Javea has beaches aplenty, although the majority of them are composed of rocks or shingle. The only sandy beach (and therefore the most popular one) is Playa del Arenal which is situated in the middle of the bay. One end of the bay was once occupied by a large Roman site; mainly thought to be used for salt production.

There are many fiestas (festivals) throughout Javea’s calendar, some of which are a real spectacle and well worth a look. As in Pamplona bull running (through the town streets) still takes place here on an annual basis, as does betting on the mating habits of racing pigeons (Colombaires).

The cuisine is another major bonus, with (affordable) good food available everywhere, alongside the middle to high end restaurants. Shopping opportunities here are good, with a mix of small shops offering local goods and handicrafts, a fish auction, open air markets, and larger (out of town) hypermarkets.

Javea is also well known for its mild climate and enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is at its hottest during the summer months, with temperatures rarely falling below 30�C (86�F). Winters are typically very mild with averages hovering around 18�C (64�F).
