Accommodation list Map view Area information JÁVEA / XÀBIA costa blanca - spain Jávea or Xàbia in Valencian, is a beautiful coastal town on the Costa Blanca in Spain and an ideal holiday destination located in the north of the province of Alicante. It is the most eastern village in the region of La Marina Alta. Enjoy Mediterranean culture in this pleasant location on the coast, surrounded by beaches, festivals and gastronomy. Javea, with a surface of 68,4 km and surrounded by beaches and mountains, is enfolded by the foothills of the "Las Planas" and the cape "Cap de Sant Antoni" in the north with an altitude of 167m above sea level, in the northeast is the Montgo mountain with 753 m altitude, in the east lies the broad valley of the rio Gorgos that traverses the area from east to west and in the south the mountains of Granadella extending in a platform of 200m height and cape "Cap de la Nao". Jávea consists of 3 parts; the historical centre, the harbour and the large beach with boulevard "El Arenal", surrounded by the various residential areas. Centro histórico The old town centre is the part of Jáveathat maintained until today its typical spanish caracter with its narrow streets, whitewashed houses, arched doorways, stained glass windows, wrought iron railings "rejas" and stone balconies. Puerto The port of Jávea, which originated in the fifteenth century and grew in the following centuries with its peak in the nineteenth century by exporting raisins. Now it is a fishing port and the daily arrival of the boats full of delicious fish and the traditional fish market have become a tourist attraction. The residential area around the harbour has a strong seaman character with old fishing houses and narrow streets. La Playa del Arenal The "EL Arenal" beach is located in the middle of the bay of Jávea and the main tourist attraction and undoubtedly the most famous beach for its fine sand and shallow waters. The boulevard offers nice shops, restaurants and bars, both during the day and at night, you can go here for a drink and a nice meal. Climate of Jávea/ Xàbia - Costa Blanca Jávea's climate, as in the rest of the Costa Blanca, is a temperate to mild climate all year round. The mountain El Montgo protects Jávea from the cold wind in the winter from the north. In summer it mainly blows from the southeast from the sea. This cool air gives Jávea pleasant temperatures. The average annual temperature varies between 17 and 24 degrees Celsius, with an average temperature of 14 degrees Celsius in January to an average temperature of 26 degrees Celsius in July and August. Jáveais very green and although it doesn't often rain, Jávea has a lot of water in the ground. It is assumed, therefore, that this is also the possible explanation for the name Jávea, which means in the arabic language spring or drinking water reservoir. The history of Jávea/ Xàbia Javea has a rich history, probably due to its location on the coast, climate and valley. There have been many settlers and conquerors who have settled here over the centuries. The oldest evidence of human activity can be found in the caves of the mountain El Montgo, where some materials come from the Upper Paleolithicum, about 16,000 years before our era. In the history of Jávea, 7 main stages can be distinguished: the Iberian era, the Roman period, the Visigothic era, the Islamic period, the Middle Ages, the Modern period and the Contemporary days. But the most important and relevant periods in the history of Jávea/ Xàbia are perhaps the Roman and Moorish eras. Landscape and surroundings of Jávea/ Xàbia Javea is situated between two capes, Cabo San Antonio and Cabo de la Nao and is sheltered by the mountains of the Montgo. The coastline of Jáveastretches over a length of 25km and offers a diverged landscape. The coastline itself consists mainly of rough cliffs, coves and bays with pebble beaches except for the Arenal, the sandy beach of Xàbia. These cliffs and bays with several caves are also beautiful when admired from the sea. The mountainous areas are covered by stretched out pine forests and the flat part is very fertile, here are grown grapes, almonds, olives and oranges. The landscape of Jávea(and Denia) is characterized by the Montgo mountain, which can be seen for miles around and many say that from the Jáveaside it looks like an elephant with its head and trunk that extends to the sea. The Montgo is 753 meters high and consists of rocky formations, cliffs and caves and is home to some of the most unique flora and fauna in Spain. In 1987 the Montgo area is named a national park. It is possible to climb the mountain from different places, excursions are also offered with a guide. Denia On the other side of the mountain lies Denia, a Spanish fishing village blossomed into a tourist coastal town on the Costa Blanca. With its long sandy beaches, charming narrow streets with shops, restaurants and terraces, the main street Marqués del Campo, the fishing harbor and the new marina is well worth a visit during your stay in Javea. Around Jáveathere are the spanish villages Jesus Pobre, Moraira, Gata de Gorgos and Pedreguer which all still maintained their typical Spanish character. Who during his stay wants to visit the larger towns and cities can make a trip to Benidorm, Alicante or Valencia.

The main work fits in the Isabelline Gothic. The importance and significance made that it in 1931 this building was declared a National Artistic Monument.

Formerly on this spot stood a monastery "Convento de las Agustinas Descalzas", it was destroyed during the Civil War (1936-39) to build a covered market but it was not until 1946 that this was actually realized. Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Loreto The charm of the port area is emphasized by the church Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Loreto (the Church of Our Lady of Loreto), opened in 1967. Known for its daring design of the lines and the conception of space and the shape of a ship. Casa del cable – The house of the cable Another interesting building in the harbor is the Casa del Cable (the house of the cable) in 1860, of which only the pillars of the "naia" are preserved. It housed the telegraph station which connected peninsula with Ibiza through an underwater cable. After renovation, the rooms are now used for exhibitions. Ermitas de la conquista – Chapels of the conquest Built in the 14th and 15th centuries are named this way because of the era in which they were built, the Christian occupation. We distinguish the following in the are of Javea: San Antonio, already gone, was on the cape that gave her the name (Cabo San Antonio). There are only the remains of a pavement of tiles. Pòpul (XIV-XV) situated on the Ctra. Jesús Pobre with paintings of Soler Blasco. San Juan (XV-XVI), became the old cemetery chapel in 1817. Santa Lucía y Sta. Bárbara (XIV-XV) is the most beautiful and representative. On the holiday of St. Llúcia December 13, the village climbs the hill in pilgrimage to the holy place. The 18th century was an era marked by demographic and economic growth, in which wealthy families or small landowners built these shrines. They are simple and small in size. Of the six chapels, two have disappeared and all are privately owned except Ermita del Santo Cristo del Calvario on the way to Denia. The original chapel was built in 1770 but the mid-19th century it was rebuilt and it became the current chapel, with a large facade, various geometric figures, the shape of a Greek cross and a dome covered with blue glazed tiles. The eleven windmills on La Plana These windmills date, one from the 14th century and the rest from the 18th century. The mill of La Safranera dates from the 19th century (1850). The mills at La Plana have a cylindrical shape, are 7 feet tall and about 6 feet wide, their function was to grind wheat. Meanwhile, they are outdated and without wings but the remains of these windmills can be seen from many places in Jávea, since they are on the higher located La Plana.
