Javea, is situated on the most easterly point of mainland Spain facing towards Ibiza and is about 100 kms from Valencia and 90 kms from Alicante.Â Javea has itÂ´s own very popular Javea golf clubÂ and International school.
The rugged coastline has many secluded coves and sandy beaches. The hidden caves and bays were once used by pirates and smugglers in the Middle Ages but are now used by local residents and holiday makers as somewhere to relax.
Javea or Xabia as it is known to the locals, is split into three very different areas.
In the Old Town with original Tosca sandstone arches, you can wander down narrow streets and visit the local market on a Thursday.
The Gothic fortified church of San Bartolome dominates the centre of Javeaâ€™s town and dates back to the 15th century.
The port of Javea has a charm of its own with whitewashed houses and fantastic seafood restaurants along the bay by the marina.
The landmark of the Port area is the church of Our Lady of Loreto with a roof which imitates the hull of a ship. Nearby, the beach area known as the Arenal is a sandy blue flag awarded beach which is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants. The Arenal promenade is a great place to walk along in the evening, particularly during the summer when there are various stalls selling a variety of handmade crafts. Many of the bars have live music and there are several discotheques.
Javea really is a town that offers something for people of all ages.
