Javea is a town of three parts. The Old Town with its maze of narrow streets, pavement cafes, old Spanish apartments and bustling market is still very much Spain as it used to be. Visitors can spend days here exploring the history and culture of this fascinating town. East of the old town is the famous Arenal beach with its great expanse of golden sand. Adjacent to the beach is the "Avenida del Mediterraneo". This long promenade has a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and in the evenings the local craftsmen set up their stalls. During the day the area plays host to the sun worshippers at night it plays host to the diners and partygoers. Right at the end of the Arenal is the old Port of Javea. Still an active fishing port the area also has a large marina. The port area is famous for its many restaurants and tapas bars and your only problem will be choosing which ones to visit during your holiday!
If you fancy a bit of excitement there are boats and jet skis available for rental on the Arenal. If you wish to travel further and do not have a rental car for the duration of your holiday there are several car rental companies close by. Bike rental is also available.
For those wishing to travel further afield the towns of Calpe, Denia, Altea and the basket making town of Gato de Burgos are well worth a visit as is the historic centre of Valencia. Inland there is much to be seen in the Jalon Valley and further afield the town of the ancient monastery at Guadalest.
The many attractions of Benidorm including the water parks, Terra-Mitica theme park and nightlife are just 40 minutes drive away. There is a daily ferry service from nearby Denia to Ibiza.
