Jávea, "pronounced as: (gáwea)" and Valencian Xàbia, is a beautiful coastal town on the Costa Blanca in Spain and an ideal holiday destination in the Comunidad Valenciana, in the north of the province of Alicante. It is the most eastern village in the area of La Marina Alta. Attractive for families or couples, with family or friends, Jávea offers many possibilities for tourists of all ages.

To the north are the foothills of the Montgo mountain "Las Planas" and the cape "Cap de Sant Antoni" with an altitude of 167 metres above sea level. In the northeast lies the Montgo itself, with an altitude of 753 metres. At the foot of the Montgo are some of the beautiful neighbourhoods where many luxury villas with pool can be found. To the east is the wide valley of the Río Gorgos, which crosses the area from east to west. In the south are the hills of La Granadella, which extend to a platform of 200 metres height and the cape "Cap de la Nao" where the villa districts Balcon al Mar and Costa Nova are situated.

Centro historico

The old town is the part of Jávea that still retains its typical Spanish character today with its narrow streets, whitewashed houses, arched doorways, gothic windows, wrought-iron lattice "rejas" and stone balconies.


The port of Jávea, which originated in the fifteenth century and grew in the following centuries, peaked in the nineteenth century with the export of sultanas. Now a fishing port, the arrival of fishing boats and the traditional fish auction have become a tourist attraction. The residential areas around the port have a strong sailor character with old fishermen's houses and narrow streets.

El Arenal beach

El Arenal beach, located in the middle of the bay of Jávea, is the main tourist attraction and without doubt the most famous beach due to its fine sand and shallow waters. The wide palm promenade offers many nice shops, restaurants and bars, both day and night you can go here for a snack and a drink.

Climate of Jávea / Xàbia - Costa Blanca

The climate in Jávea, as in the rest of the Costa Blanca, is moderate to mild throughout the year. The mountain El Montgo protects Jávea from the cold wind from the north in winter and the wind from the east from the sea makes the heat in summer more pleasant. The average annual temperature varies between 17 and 22 degrees, with an average temperature of 12 degrees in January to an average of 26 degrees in the months of July and August. Jávea is very green, even though it does not rain very often, Jávea has a lot of water under the ground. For this reason, it is thought that one of the possible explanations for the name comes from the Arabic word "Xabiga", which means a kind of well or water reservoir, in connection with the large quantities that existed in this place.

The history of Jávea / Xàbia

The history of Jávea is rich, probably because of its coastal location, climate and valley, there have been many settlers and invaders who have settled here over the centuries. The oldest evidence of human activity in the course of Jávea can be found in the Montgó cave, where some materials date back to the Upper Palaeolithic, about 16,000 years before our time.

In the history of Jávea there are 7 important stages: the Iberian period, the Roman period, the Visigothic period, the Islamic period, the Medieval period, the Modern period and the Contemporary. But the most important and relevant phases in the history of Jávea/Xàbia are perhaps the Roman and Moorish periods.

Landscape of Jávea / Xàbia

Jávea lies between two capes, Cabo de San Antonio and Cabo de la Nao, and is protected by the mountain of El Montgó. The coastline of Jávea stretches for 25 km and offers a varied landscape.

The coastline itself consists mainly of rugged rocky coastline and coves with pebble beaches with the exception of the Arenal, Jávea's sandy beach. These cliffs and coves with several caves are also beautiful to admire from the sea. The mountainous areas are covered with extensive pine forests and the flat area is very fertile, where grapes, almonds, olives and oranges are grown.

The landscape of Jávea (and Denia) is characterised by the Montgó mountain, which can be seen in the vast area and many people say that from Jávea it looks like an elephant with its head and trunk stretching to the sea. The Montgó is 753 metres high and consists of rock formations, cliffs and caves and is home to some of Spain's most unique flora and fauna. In 1987, the Montgó area was declared a natural park. It is possible to climb the mountain from various places and guided excursions are also offered.

Surrounding Jávea are the Spanish villages of Moraira, Jesus Pobre, Benitachell, Gata de Gorgos and Pedreguer, which have retained their typical Spanish character. If you would like to visit larger cities during your holiday, you can take a trip to Benidorm, Alicante or Valencia.

  • Llebeig, south-facing, in Valencian this is the name for the warm wind from the Sahara.
  • Gregal, eastward and owes its name to the ancient sailors who used the wind for their journeys to Greece.

Sights of Jávea / Xàbia

Iglesia de San Bartalomé

The most remarkable building in the historical centre is undoubtedly the church of San Bartalomé, built from the 14th to the 16th century, with extensions in the 18th and 19th centuries. The most important work belongs to the Isabelline Gothic style. Due to its importance and significance, it was declared a National Artistic Monument in 1931.

Church in Javea Covered market in Javea Casa del Cable javea

Mercado Municipal de Abastos

Opposite the church is the current municipal covered market hall where you can find a wide range of goods such as fruit, vegetables, fresh fish and meat. Previously, there was a convent "Convento de las Agustinas Descalzas" on this spot, which was destroyed during the Civil War (1936-39) to build a covered market hall, but it took until 1946 before this was actually realised.

Casa del Cable - The Cable House

Another interesting building in the harbour is the Casa del Cable (the house of the cable) from 1860, of which only the pillars of the "arches" have survived. Here was the telegraph station that connected the peninsula with Ibiza via an undersea cable. After renovation, the rooms are now used for exhibitions.

Ermitas de conquista - Chapels of the conquest

The surrounding chapels were built in the 14th and 15th centuries and are referred to by the name of the era in which they were built, namely the Christian occupation. We distinguish the following in the area of Jávea:

  • San Antonio, now gone, stood on the promontory that gave it its name (Cabo San Antonio). Only the remains of a paving stone remain.
  • Pòpul (XIV-XV) is on the way. Jesús Pobre with paintings by Soler Blasco.
  • San Juan (XV-XVI), became the old chapel of the cemetery in 1817.
  • Santa Lucía y Sta. Bárbara (XIV-XV) is the most beautiful and representative chapel. On the name day of St. Llúcia, 13 December, the village climbs the hill to the shrine in pilgrimage.

The 18th century was an era characterised by demographic and economic growth, when wealthy families or small landowners built these shrines. They are simple and small in size.

Of the six chapels, two have already disappeared and the rest are privately owned, with the exception of Ermita del Santo Cristo del Calvario on the way to Denia. The original chapel was built in 1770, but in the middle of the 19th century it was converted into the current one, with a large facade, various geometric figures, the shape of a Greek cross and a dome covered with blue glazed tiles.

The eleven windmills at La Plana

The eleven mills on La Plana date from the 14th century and the rest from the 18th century. The Safranera mill dates back to the 19th century (1850). The mills on La Plana are cylindrical in shape, 7 metres high and about 6 metres wide; their function was to grind wheat.

Windmills on La Plana

The mills are now outdated and without sails, but the remains of these mills can be seen from many places in Jávea, such as on the higher La Plana.
