Jávea (or Xabia in Valenciano) is the jewel of the Costa Blanca, combining beauty and modern facilities with the charm of an ancient fishing village. Although popular, Jávea does not get as crowded as some of the other Costa Blanca resorts and will suit those looking for a quieter holiday but still with plenty of facilities.
Jávea is situated on the most easterly point on mainland Spain and is framed by the foothills of the mountain peaks of Montgo and Cap de la Nao. Thanks to the Montgo Mountain barrier, Jávea is sheltered from the continental cold winters and is blessed by sea breezes in the summer. The coastline has scenic rocky coves, natural parks, wonderful beaches and dramatic cliffs. Jávea has been voted ‘environmentally near perfect’ by the World Health Organisation and boasts 320 days of sunshine a year!
Jávea has three residential areas with a total population of just over 30.000 people: the old/historical town, the port and Playa Arenal. In the old town Jávea ´s culture, traditions and holidays still have very deep roots and are celebrated by its citizens. The Arenal beach is the main tourist magnet and is crowded with bars and restaurants. At the port the many pavement cafés and bars overlooking the Mediterranean, invite you to sit and have a drink and just enjoy the ambience of Spanish life.
