The resort has 20 kilometres of coastline, with a wide choice of beaches, like the sandy bay at El Arenal or heavenly coves such as La Granadella.
Away from the coast is an historic centre to wander through, and there are endless opportunities to escape to the wilderness all around: Jávea is bookended by two soaring headlands, and all the while the hulking mass of the Montgó Massif will catch the eye of anyone in need of adventure.
Lets have a look at the best things to do in Javea:
1. Arenal Beach
Many people arriving in Jávea will stop at this beach and go nowhere else for a few days.
Playa de Arenal wins the Blue Flag year after year, and is also the only completely sandy beach in the resort.
It’s almost half a kilometre in length and gains the award for its meticulous standards of cleanliness and possession almost every amenity you could wish for.
Lifeguards are here throughout the summer, there are sports facilities, children’s playgrounds and a host of places to eat at the promenade behind, which we’ll come to next.
