The town of Javea is made up of 3 very distinct areas - The Arenal, The Port and The Old Town.
The ArenalThe Arenal has a long sandy blue flag beach and is backed by a promenade lined with palm trees. It is surrounded by a variety of restaurants, bars and shops. During summer evenings you will find a variety of stalls along the promenade selling handmade crafts. The Arenal is popular with families as it is a sheltered bay where the water is shallow and calm.
The Port of JaveaThe port has character and charm with a real Spanish atmosphere. It has many great shops, restaurants and pavement cafes overlooking the sea. The pebbly beach is a great place to watch the traditional fishermen land their catches or you can sit in a pavement cafe and watch the sailing boats setting off.
Javea Old TownThe Old Town is set back from the coast and is well worth a visit with its narrow streets, historical church and museum which tells the history of the coast through the ages. There is a small daily market selling local fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and a large market on Thursdays where you can buy local fresh produce. You'll find some great tapas bars in the old town where you can get traditional food at very reasonable prices.
If you go exploring in Javea you will find small coves with delightful beaches, cultural and historic sites and breathtaking views. There is something for everyone in Javea and that is part of its charm.
