JÁVEA is a coastal town in the Marina Altea, the northern part of the province of Alicante. It is a small historic town free of high rise buildings. Its location near the Montgó, between two land heads, give it a sheltered location with many sandy beaches and coves. One of the famous beaches is Playa Arenal with white sandy beaches and a beautiful promenade with restaurants and bars beside it.
Javea has lots to offer for sports fanatics with the modern marina with almost 300 berths and lots of watersports. Such as sailing, fishing, scuba diving, surfing and windsurfing. There are many sports clubs to enjoy sports like tennis or golf as well as horse riding or even shooting.
The local cuisine of Javea is based on Mediterranean food. It offers a combination of seafood and vegetables mixed with styles and influences introduced by ever more tourists and foreigners.
Jávea has a typical Mediterranean climate with cool sea breezes in summer and mild temperatures in winter. This as a result of the surrounding Montgó mountain area that protects the area from cold northern winter weather. The average temperatures easily pass 20 degrees and more than 325 days sun per year is more than normal.
Due to its location, Javea is not directly linked to the AP-7 motorway. The fastest way is to exit this motorway in Dénia and continue on the CV-734 when coming from the north. From the south however it is easier to take the exit in Benissa. After this exit, the N-332 goes north to Teulada from where the CV-740 through Benitachell leads to Javea.
