The mere mention of Costa Blanca cannot fail to make you think of sea, sand and sun, and the famous Spanish coastline delivers all these and so much more. Tucked away in the heart of the Costa Blanca is Javea, a delightful historic town brimming with character and a great variety things to do. A holiday in Javea is not only one of the sunniest you will have, with more sunshine than anywhere else in Spain, but also one of the healthiest – the World Health Organisation has declared Javea’s local climate as one of the healthiest in the world.
See the sights in Javea
The old quarter of Javea is a classic maze of sun-kissed backstreets and ancient relics that whisper of a long past that absolutely reward whoever gets lost in them. Near the church of Sant Bartomeu is the marketplace, filled with local wares and a great place to soak up the atmosphere.
The nearby port is one of the few tourist-orientated ports that not only remains active, but hasn’t succumbed to modernisation. This authentic, functioning Mediterranean port has a wonderful buzz to it, and stroll down the promenade is a must, with incredible views of the bay.
Further along the coast is Playa de Arenal, Javea’s beach, a relaxed and friendly place that caters well for families as well as the peckish, with a great selection of bars and restaurants regardless of your budget. Volleyball is a popular sport on the Arenal, and Scuba-diving here is an unforgettable experience.
Need to escape into nature? Not a problem, as the 2,000 hectare Montgo Natural Park lies on Javea’s doorstep, including the impressive Montgo Mountain that dominates the skyline. On a clear day, you can see as far as Ibiza. Hikers will relish the challenge of this peak, but this vast park offers a huge array for everyone, from short-distance trails to bird-watching.
All of this and much more are within easy distance of each other. Javea is compact enough for a short weekend, but is so rich and packed with sights and activities that a holiday in Javea can become much, much longer.
