Jávea, called Xábia by the locals, is considered the pearl of the Costa Blanca. And rightly so, because Jávea is a unique piece of Spain, which will surprise, amaze and enchant you with its charm and versatility.

An unprecedentedly beautiful coastline, without tall apartment buildings and hotels. The only thing that is dominant is the beautiful natural heritage, the impressive 753 meter high mountain Montgó, which is also a beautiful background for Finca Bona Nit.

The unique town of Jávea offers something for everyone. It consists of three centers, the old town (Pueblo), the port (Puerto) and the beach (Playa Arenal), each with their own character.


The old town of Jávea

The old town still breathes that authentic Spanish atmosphere with narrow cobbled streets, picturesque squares and historic buildings with a medieval look, such as the impressive church Iglesia de San Bartolomé.

The covered food market hall is located in the beautiful building next to the church. Highly recommended for fans of typical Spanish fresh products.

In the atmospheric narrow alleys of the historic center you can stroll around or enjoy a snack or drink in one of the many cosy restaurants or cafes.

The port of Jávea

The port of Jávea, Duanes de la Mar, is a lively part of Jávea with the coming and going of fishing boats, which provide fresh fish daily. A visit to the fish market La Lonja is therefore highly recommended.

In the cosy surroundings of the harbour there are several shops and many restaurants that serve the freshly caught fish for a delicious lunch or dinner. The beautiful beach near the harbour completes the bustling area and offers something for everyone.

In addition to the fishing port, there is also a marina in Duanes de la Mar. In the marina you can enjoy water sports, such as fishing, diving or renting boats.

Playa Arenal

The sandy beach, Playa de Arenal, is located in the middle of the beautiful bay of Jávea between the 2 rocky capes Cabo San Antonio and Cabo de la Nao. On the edge of the fine sandy beach is a beautiful wide pedestrian boulevard with many restaurants, bars and shops.

The beach is very accessible because of the many facilities such as the possibility to water ski, rent jet skis and make excursions. There are also many ball sports on the beach, such as volleyball. The accessibility is perfect and there are enough parking spaces.

In the summer months there are stalls with trinkets in the evening, which creates a wonderful bustling atmosphere. In the evening you can also have a nice drink in one of the chiringuitos (beach bars) along the promenade between the harbour and Playa Arenal.


Beaches in the area

Playa de Arenal is one of the many beautiful beaches in the vicinity of the Jávea. But the beautiful coastline of Jávea is home to several small picturesque bays that you really must see.

All bays have beautiful clear water and a gentle wave, which makes swimming very pleasant. That in combination with boulevards, beach bars, cafes and restaurants and that Jávea has a particularly favorable climate gives the maximum enjoyment.

Special beaches like Cala Baracca o Portitxol or Cala Granadella are considered some of the most beautiful beaches in Spain.
