Javea lies about 80 kilometers north of Alicante almost mid way between Valencia and Alicante. It is sheilded from the cold winds by the Montgo Mountain. Views from the “Montgo” in the the National Park are magnificent but it is quite a climb...you have to be fit. Javea stretches along the blue Medierranean sea which sparkles with sunshine most of the year.
There are three distinct parts to Javea which gives you the best of all worlds. First there is the old part of the town which has not changed much over the years and has medieval architecture and the houses are built along the the narrow streets in traditional style. The old town leads down to the harbour and fishing port, here you will find the Javea fishing boats along side the private yachts and motor cruisers moored at the Javea Nautical Club. The Fishing Port is where the morning catch is auctioned off to the local restaurants. Around this area you will find a number shops, cafes and bars where you will be able to find a place in the sun to watch the world go by.
The modern part of Javea is to be found at the southern end of the bay at the Arenal Beach. This has a real holiday atmosphere and everything that a holiday maker could ask for. There are lots of restaurants and bars along the promenade and on the beach you will find soft clean sand which runs into the mostly warm shallow water of the Mediterranean.
The area around Javea in the triangle bounded by Moraira, teulada and Javea is different from the rest of Spain in that with some narrow winding roads and vine groves, it has a “French” feel the surrounding countryside.
