Javea

The friendly family resort of Javea is a large town with two main beaches and an historic old town set back from the sea. A harbour and fish market can be found on one side of the resort, offering stylish restaurants, great views and a pebbly beach. The popular, sandy Arenal beach on the other side has a palm-lined promenade of shops, bars and restaurants, while at night, the town comes alive with market stalls and street performers. Our villas here are located in countryside and residential areas, so transport is essential to reach the main resort.

Excursions and Places of Interest

Excursions and Places of interest at Javea

Vineyards

The nearby Jalon Valley is a truly spectacular region where you will discover a vast and verdant landscape of vineyards, where some of Spain’s finest vintages are produced.

Cruises

Boat cruises are available from Javea’s marina to the towns of Calpe and Altea, which provide a chance to enjoy Costa Blanca’s stunning coastline from a different perspective. If you fancy a trip that takes you further afield, a ferry from Denia can whisk you over to Ibiza for an impromptu day trip.

Natural areas of beauty

The stunning coastline of Costa Blanca is the region’s principle attraction, inspiring its name with mile upon mile of fine white sand, with many beaches awarded prestigious Blue Flag status. In and around Javea you will find a number of popular beaches, as well as some quieter, more secluded coves. The wonderful selection of beaches continue down the coastline, lined with some wonderful rock formations such as the Peñón de Ifach rock - a fantastic landmark in Calpe that stands over 300 metres tall and can be seen for miles around. Keen walkers will find a haven of wildlife as well as incredible views at its summit. Inland the landscape is no less impressive, with other renowned beauty spots including the hilltop village of Guadalest steeped in history and the verdant vineyards of the beautiful Jalon Valley, backed by the mountains of the Montgo National Park.

Attraction parks

Located about 45 minutes south of Javea, the lively resort of Benidorm offers three excellent attraction parks for you to enjoy. The first of these is Terra Mítica, which is themed around ancient Mediterranean civilizations. There are roller coasters and other adrenaline-inducing rides to enjoy, as well as spectacular shows telling historical battles and age-old legends. Mundomar Animal Park is another great attraction, with a whole host of animal shows to enjoy, providing a fun filled day for all the family. Finally, there is Terra Natura where you can see a huge variety of wildlife and plenty of entertainment and adventure activities.

Water Parks

Also located in Benidorm, Aqualandia is well worth a visit for a fun-filled day out! Known as the biggest and best-known water park in the area, Aqualandia offers something for all ages including Adventureland for younger children, a fantastic wave pool, and the highest and steepest water chutes in Europe!

The old town

Ramble the old town of Javea through a labyrinth of winding lanes and tiny plazas and marvel at the gothic-style buildings and defensive fortifications of times past.

Museums

Learn about the fascinating history of the town at the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum, which also houses a magnificent reproduction of Javea's Iberian treasure.

Churches / Cathedrals

Without a doubt the most striking church in Javea is San Bartolome, a 15th century fortification of domineering gothic architecture, while on the harbour the church Our Lady of Loreto, appropriately resembles the keel of a ship. Outside the town nestled high amid the rugged landscape you will also find the fascinating archaeological remains of the monastery of Nuestra Señora de Los Ángeles and ancient windmills.

Other Places of interest

Guadalest

The village of Guadalest is well worth a visit on your villa holiday, perching at the pinnacle of this mountain landscape, it commands impressive views of the picturesque valley and reservoir below. Despite its small size, this historic gem is quintessentially Spanish and brimming with remnants from the Moorish occupation of Spain, including the 12th century Castle of San José accessed through a natural tunnel in the rock, as well as the Castle of La Alcozaina. There are also several museums and other fascinating antiquities, making for an absorbing day out.

Algar Waterfalls (Fuentes del Algar), Callosa

This beauty spot is a must when staying in Costa Blanca, and ideal to twin with a visit to Guadalest for a wonderful day out. The natural water falls of Algar are carefully preserved to maintain their original environment. You can swim and jump into many of the natural rock pools along the path of the falls, for a really refreshing dip. Then if you follow the path to the top (can only be done on foot) there is a shop and a Mediterranean spice garden.

Denia

Within a 30 minute drive of Javea you will find the cosmopolitan town of Denia, with its castle commanding a focal point amid the beautiful surrounding landscape.

Altea

The nearby town of Altea can be found within a 40 minute drive and offers a charming and tranquil retreat for a day of exploration, with its small yet picturesque coves and pretty streets leading to the beautiful blue-domed Parochial Church at its heart.

Valencia

Further up the coast from Costa Blanca is Valencia, a cosmopolitan city brimming with attractions for an enjoyable day trip. Here you can find everything from fantastic shopping promenades and the bustling marina, to the historic treasures of the ancient district and cathedral quarter. The futuristic, breathtaking architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences sits alongside the vast Turia Gardens, while the nearby Albufera Nature Park completes a region of spectacular diversity.
