Javea, situated on the Spanish Costa Blanca, is a great base for anyone looking to explore this region’s natural beauty. A combination of low rise buildings, historic structures, gothic architecture and cobbled streets give this resort a traditional and relaxed feel. Spend an evening here though and this resort comes alive with late night restaurants, live music and cocktails to take you through the night.
Things to Do
Lovers of nature will be in their element in Javea. There are two Blue Flag beaches to enjoy and the Montgo National Park shows off Javea at its finest. You can even see the outlying Balearic Islands on a clear day! Alternatively, if you want to spend a day on the ocean, hire a boat to admire the rugged coastline or blast your way around on a jet ski for an adrenaline rush to remember!
Food and Drink
Part of Javea’s appeal is the relaxed and laidback evening vibe. Cafés and restaurants line the cobbled streets where tapas, sangria and cocktails are often served late into the evening and live flamenco can be heard from the open air restaurants. However, if you’re in need of a lively night out, Arenal – Javea’s old town – is the place to go to dance until dawn.
If you’re looking for a place that’s got personality with no high-rise buildings in sight, then Javea will be perfect for you. This resort on the Costa Blanca oozes history which can be seen in the gothic architecture of the buildings and its four churches. The 700 year old, sandy coloured, square shaped church of San Bartoleme in Javea’s town centre however, contrasts sharply with the modern church that looks over the fishing port.
