Javea is a highly desirable area. It is a charming town and lies between the Capes of San Antonio and La Nao, on the northern section of the Costa Blanca. Bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, and sheltered from the continental winds by Mount Montgo, it is no wonder that the World Health Organization once selected Javea as having a near-perfect climate for longevity! With it’s mild year-round temperatures, varying landscapes – from sandy coastlines to rugged mountain areas – and extensive tourist facilities, Javea has still managed to preserve all the charm of an ancient fishing village, and is truly the jewel in the crown of Spain’s coastal communities.
Medieval sounds echo through the historic town centre that has largely been preserved over the centuries. White house fronts adorned with wrought-iron grilles and Gothic-style windows provide a noble touch to the labyrinth of streets and diminutive plazas. The Gothic fortified church of San Bartolomé dates from the 15th century and is listed as a national artistic monument. Its massive bulk half-religious, half-military surges above the web-like pattern of streets. In the fascinating Archeological and Ethnographic Museum – occupying a nearby Gothic Palace – you can view some of the material evidence of Javea’s long past.
Perched on the mountain tops are the remains of ancient watchtowers reminding us how attractive this region was for the Berber pirates in times gone by.
During the months of May and October enjoy a cocktail as you sit at one of the wonderful beach bars that set up along the pebble beach from the Arenal to the Port. Just sit, relax and watch the world go by.
To the north, the natural park of Montgó rises up to 753 metres above sea level, nurturing one of the most valuable botanical reserves in the Valencian Region. A journey up the slopes shows a wealth of different vegetation, and provides extraordinary panoramic views from the top.
Javea is a good all-year-round living location and the town is divided into many different areas. We have the Old Town with its historical winding pebble stone streets where you will find many great tapas bars and restaurants, the Gothic church and the Museo Etnografico Soler Blasco.

The Arenal beach has been awarded the Blue Flag certificate for several years.
