Jávea is situated just south of Dénia, between the San Antonio and de la Nau capes.
The town is divided into three areas, Arenal beach, port and old town. In summer a fun train runs between all three, from early in the morning until late.
The old town is worth exploring, with its Moorish narrow streets filled with shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. It’s here that you’ll find the beautiful church of San Bartolome, the post office and the market.
At the Port, there are some great tapas bars, where you can sit and watch the fishermen returning with their catch each day. Look inside the church built by fisherman who prayed for help during a storm, the inside of the roof looks just like the hull of a boat.
At Arenal beach there’s a promenade lined with Bars and Restaurants, a great place for a stroll in the early evening and you’ll enjoy browsing the craft stalls set up along the prom.
Jávea has a 20 km coastline which runs from Cabo de San Antonio in the north to La Granadelle in the south. The beaches are varied and provide unique sailing, swimming and diving experiences.
The long sandy beaches in the south are great for sunbathing and swimming and you can hire windsurf equipment and paddle boats.
The most popular of these is Blue Flag, El Arenal which has fine sand and shallow water, great for kids and there are specially adapted areas for people with disabilities; it’s a great beach for relaxing.
When you’ve relaxed enough, the diving around the San Antonio cape is sublime; this area has being declared a marine nature reserve and provides an amazing colourful seascape for exploring.
