costa blanca - spain
Jávea or Xàbia in Valencian, is a beautiful coastal town on the Costa Blanca in Spain and an ideal holiday destination located in the north of the province of Alicante. It is the most eastern village in the region of La Marina Alta.
Enjoy Mediterranean culture in this pleasant location on the coast, surrounded by beaches, festivals and gastronomy.
Javea, with a surface of 68,4 km and surrounded by beaches and
mountains, is enfolded by the foothills of the "Las Planas" and the cape
"Cap de Sant Antoni" in the north with an altitude of 167m above sea
level, in the northeast is the Montgo mountain with 753 m altitude, in
the east lies the broad valley of the rio Gorgos that traverses the area
from east to west and in the south the mountains of Granadella
extending in a platform of 200m height and cape "Cap de la Nao".
Jávea consists of 3 parts; the historical centre, the harbour and the large beach with boulevard "El Arenal", surrounded by the various residential areas.
The old town centre is the part of Jáveathat maintained until today its typical spanish caracter with its narrow streets, whitewashed houses, arched doorways, stained glass windows, wrought iron railings "rejas" and stone balconies.
The port of Jávea, which originated in the fifteenth century and grew in the following centuries with its peak in the nineteenth century by exporting raisins. Now it is a fishing port and the daily arrival of the boats full of delicious fish and the traditional fish market have become a tourist attraction. The residential area around the harbour has a strong seaman character with old fishing houses and narrow streets.
The "EL Arenal" beach is located in the middle of the bay of Jávea and the main tourist attraction and undoubtedly the most famous beach for its fine sand and shallow waters. The boulevard offers nice shops, restaurants and bars, both during the day and at night, you can go here for a drink and a nice meal.
Jávea's climate, as in the rest of the Costa Blanca, is a temperate to mild climate all year round. The mountain El Montgo protects Jávea from the cold wind in the winter from the north. In summer it mainly blows from the southeast from the sea. This cool air gives Jávea pleasant temperatures.
The average annual temperature varies between 17 and 24 degrees Celsius, with an average temperature of 14 degrees Celsius in January to an average temperature of 26 degrees Celsius in July and August. Jáveais very green and although it doesn't often rain, Jávea has a lot of water in the ground. It is assumed, therefore, that this is also the possible explanation for the name Jávea, which means in the arabic language spring or drinking water reservoir.
Javea has a rich history, probably due to its location on the coast, climate and valley. There have been many settlers and conquerors who have settled here over the centuries. The oldest evidence of human activity can be found in the caves of the mountain El Montgo, where some materials come from the Upper Paleolithicum, about 16,000 years before our era.
In the history of Jávea, 7 main stages can be distinguished: the Iberian era, the Roman period, the Visigothic era, the Islamic period, the Middle Ages, the Modern period and the Contemporary days. But the most important and relevant periods in the history of Jávea/ Xàbia are perhaps the Roman and Moorish eras.
Javea is situated between two capes, Cabo San Antonio and Cabo de la Nao and is sheltered by the mountains of the Montgo.
The coastline of Jáveastretches over a length of 25km and offers a diverged landscape. The coastline itself consists mainly of rough cliffs, coves and bays with pebble beaches except for the Arenal, the sandy beach of Xàbia. These cliffs and bays with several caves are also beautiful when admired from the sea.
The landscape of Jávea(and Denia) is characterized by the Montgo
mountain, which can be seen for miles around and many say that from the Jáveaside it looks like an elephant with its head and trunk that
extends to the sea. The Montgo is 753 meters high and consists of rocky
formations, cliffs and caves and is home to some of the most unique
flora and fauna in Spain. In 1987 the Montgo area is named a national
park. It is possible to climb the mountain from different places,
excursions are also offered with a guide.
On the other side of the mountain lies Denia, a Spanish fishing village blossomed into a tourist coastal town on the Costa Blanca. With its long sandy beaches, charming narrow streets with shops, restaurants and terraces, the main street Marqués del Campo, the fishing harbor and the new marina is well worth a visit during your stay in Javea.
Around Jáveathere are the spanish villages Jesus Pobre, Moraira, Gata de Gorgos and Pedreguer which all still maintained their typical Spanish character.
Who during his stay wants to visit the larger towns and cities can make a trip to Benidorm, Alicante or Valencia.
The beach of Balcon al Mar
The beach El Arenal
The beach of Portichol
The 25km long coast of Xàbia offers a variety of beaches and bays that are known for their natural beauty, clear waters and Mediterranean woodland settings. We distinguish beaches of gravel, stones and rocks or sand, where all kinds of water sports can be practiced: jet ski, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking, water skiing, paddle boats, sailing, fishing etc.
The small bays and rocky coast provide ideal sites for diving and snorkeling. On most beaches in the summer sun beds and parasols can be rented. The Arenal, located in the middle of the bay is the most famous and
visited beach and the only sandy beach of Javea. Along the entire beach
is a promenade with shops, bars and restaurants, making this beach so
popular, and where you can go for a snack, drink or ice cream on a
glorious day at the beach. Also on the Arenal beach various water sports
can be practiced and you can play beach volley ball or hire a boat or
Besides the Arenal there are several pebble and rocky beaches as Pope -
Tangó, La Grava, La Muntanyar and La Caleta. The crystal clear water and
beautiful views make these beaches unique, also snorkeling offers some
beautiful underwater views.
La Granadella is one of the most beautiful bays of Jávea, with high
cliffs on both sides this bay, consisting of pebbles, offers stunning
views, crystal clear water, snorkeling possibilities and you can canoe
along the impressive cliffs and caves. The Granadella beach is voted
best beach of Spain in summer 2012. La Barraca - Portixol is a quiet bay
and particularly popular with fishermen and the local population, the
bay overlooks the island Portitxol. When we talk about the beaches of Jávea, we should not forget to mention the chiringuitos. These typical beach bars are open from about June to September and can be found among others between the port of Jáveaand the Arenal. A drink at the sea front in one of these beach bars with a breeze from the sea gives you a real holiday feeling. Most bars also offer small snacks and also in evening you can enjoy here a drink or a cocktail.
Along this beautiful coastline Xabia looks out over the sea from its 15
miradores i.e. viewpoints. All are well marked so they are easy to find
for the visitor. From north to south these are: Els Molins, Cap de Sant
Antoni, Punta del Castell, Séquia de la Nòria, Cala Blanca, Caletes,
Creu del Portitxol, L'Illa, Falzia, Cap Negre, Cap de la Nau, Pesqueres,
Ambolo, Castell de la Granadella and Granadella. We definitely
recommmend you to drive a route along these points during your stay in
Also for people that are looking for an active holiday Jáveaoffers
enough possibilities, tennis, golf, mountain biking, hiking, sailing,
cycling are just some of them.
Apart from the water sport activities mentioned earlier like jet skiing,
windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking, water skiing, driving a paddle
boat, sailing, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving and beach activities
such as beach volleyball are also hiking, cycling, mountain biking and
mountaineering known in this region. There can be distinguished several
routes in the Montgo area, Reserva Marina, Ruta de Las Ermitas,
Granadella, to the lighthouse or viewpoints, through the beautiful
countryside and the valley.
Javea offers tennis courts, a riding club, sailing club, gyms, diving
schools, cycling club, basketball and football, rifle club and a golf
There are several 9 and 18 hole golf courses in the Comunidad Valencia
and the Costa Blanca and the climate in this region makes it ideal to
play all year round.
Javea Golf Club is situated on the road from Jáveato Benitachell. This
9-hole golf course was designed by Francisco Moreno and opened in 1981.
Sheltered by the Cap San Antonio this golf course has a perfect
microclimate all year round and it is located in a beautiful natural
setting, surrounded by pine trees.
Nearby is the 27 hole La Sella golf course, designed by José María
Olazábal in 1991 and internationally known for its excellent conditions
to play all year round. There are three 9 hole courses that can be
distinguished by 3 different colors and names of local winds by their
Nice souvenir shops at the boulevard, small boutiques in the harbor and shops in the old town offer a day of shopping in Jáveastrolling along the beach or through the narrow streets.
Of course there is also a weekly market in Jávea, this is held every Thursday in the village and you will find not only fruit and vegetables here but also textiles, shoes, bags, home, garden and kitchen items etc. even souvenirs can be found here.
Near Jávea, in the nearby Ondara, is the shopping centre Portal de la Marina which apart from many shops also offers places to eat and a cinema.
For those who want to go for a day out, the closest cities Valencia and Alicante are a must. For a city trip or just a day of shopping while you can enjoy in the mean time these cities and the beautiful buildings, especially in the center of Valencia these can be admired.
The most remarkable building in the old town is without doubt the church
of San Bartalomé, from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, with
extensions in the eighteenth century and nineteenth century. The main
work fits in the Isabelline Gothic. The importance and significance made
that it in 1931 this building was declared a National Artistic
The charm of the port area is emphasized by the church Iglesia de
Nuestra Senora de Loreto (the Church of Our Lady of Loreto), opened in
1967. Known for its daring design of the lines and the conception of
space and the shape of a ship.
Another interesting building in the harbor is the Casa del Cable (the
house of the cable) in 1860, of which only the pillars of the "naia" are
preserved. It housed the telegraph station which connected peninsula
with Ibiza through an underwater cable. After renovation, the rooms are
now used for exhibitions.
Built in the 14th and 15th centuries are named this way because of
the era in which they were built, the Christian occupation. We
distinguish the following in the are of Javea:
The 18th century was an era marked by demographic and economic growth,
in which wealthy families or small landowners built these shrines. They
are simple and small in size. Of the six chapels, two have
disappeared and all are privately owned except Ermita del Santo Cristo
del Calvario on the way to Denia. The original chapel was built in 1770
but the mid-19th century it was rebuilt and it became the current
chapel, with a large facade, various geometric figures, the shape of a
Greek cross and a dome covered with blue glazed tiles.
These windmills date, one from the 14th century and the rest from the
18th century. The mill of La Safranera dates from the 19th century
(1850). The mills at La Plana have a cylindrical shape, are 7 feet tall
and about 6 feet wide, their function was to grind wheat.
they are outdated and without wings but the remains of these windmills
can be seen from many places in Jávea, since they are on the higher
located La Plana.
Includes a magnificent reproduction of the Iberian Treasury of Jávea, including a diadem which appeared in a ceramic jar in Lluca. Also,
samples of the Roman and medieval pottery are displayed. Besides the
eight rooms, two halls are for temporary exhibitions.
Impressive processions, bull run and traditional costume characterize the celebrations of Jáveawhich more than once end with beautiful fireworks. The most important holidays on the calendar of Jáveaare:
Easter on the other hand is an important time of the year and is celebrated with family.
End of July - Ajedrez Viviente this living chess game is celebrated since 1996 and has been declared a festival of national tourist interest. It consists of a stage adaptation, which each year focuses on a different theme acted by children who represent a living chessboard.
