Top Spot – Villas in Javea on the Costa Blanca

Beautiful Javea lies close to the dominating Montgo Mountain in the north of  the Costa Blanca. The town started attracting north Europeans more than 30 years ago and many of these visitors never left leaving a thriving ex-pat community.  Javea is an attractive destination with plenty to offer visitors including some of Spain's finest golden beaches.

Javea is divided into three parts: Javea Pueblo (the old town); Javea Puerto (the bustling port area); and Playa de Arenal (the main beach area). Today the old town and the port are pretty much joined thanks to the property development which has gone on in the town whilst Playa de Arenal lies some 3km along a rocky beach from the Port.

Climate

Javea is protected from harsh winter winds of the north by the massif of Montgó (753 m / 2,471 ft) and it enjoys a unique micro-climate that the World Health Organisation named as one of the healthiest in the world. There are more recorded hours of sunshine per year in Xàbia than in any other place in Spain, making it a popular destination for Northern Europeans during the cold winter months.

Nightlife

The nightlife in Javea is centred around the Arenal where there is a selection of bars and clubs. During the summer, several chiringuitos (beach bars) spring up along the seafront between the Arenal and the port area. The old town region also hosts a wide variety of nightlife options, ranging from the more traditional Spanish bars to modern nightclubs frequented by the locals.

About Arenal

The sandy beach area is an arc of wide white sand flanked by a promenade of shops, bars and restaurants. During the summer evenings there are a number of stalls selling handmade crafts. Many of the bars offer live music and stay open until the early hours. Sand artists and street entertainers work along the Arenal beach during the summer months. The 'Punta del Arenal' behind the Parador Nacional Hotel was once an important Roman settlement where the fish sauce Garum was produced. On the other end of the small bay once stood the Fontana Castle, built in 1424 and destroyed by the English during the Peninsular War in the early 19th century; the ruins of the castle now lie under modern apartment buildings but some of the castle's surviving cannons sit outside the Church of Sant Bartolomé in the old town.
