Holidays In Javea Costa Blanca


Javea Port

Javea is just a few miles south of the Costa Blanca's most northerly resort Denia, from which it is separated by a rocky headland  jutting out from the port area.

Javea is split into two resort areas, the historic old part which is made up of narrow streets flanked by shops and bars and overlooked by mountains.

The newer resort is approximately two miles south of the old town and is a popular tourist destination.

Javea is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa Blanca for villa holidays.  Most of the villas are perched on the hills overlooking the old town and the bay.

What's a bit odd is that the two halves of the resort don't have a promenade connecting them, just a road, which makes it feel like you are travelling between two completely different towns.

The promenade in Javea old town is a favourite place to eat out, there are lots of excellent restaurants overlooking the large bay. 

The new town has a completely different atmosphere, and caters for a younger age group.

Unusually, Javea is quite a distance from the motorway and the main N332 which are both approximately 5 miles inland from the resort.  The majority of Costa Blanca resorts are usually only a mile or two away from the main roads.

To sum up, Javea is a pleasant resort which is ideal for a villa, apartment or package holiday,  quieter than Benidorm but with lots of amenities to suit  young and old.  

If you're looking for somewhere quiet to relax and enjoy meals out, try the old town area. For younger people the newer resort has a sandy beach and some good night life but isn't too rowdy.
