Situated on the stunning coastline of Costa Blanca, Jávea is one of the top destinations in the region. A picturesque 12-mile coastline abuts an old city with historic architecture and sites. Stay at one of our Jávea holiday rentals and you'll see why so many visitors are enthralled with this beautiful town.
The Visigoths put the town on the map, building a Christian monastery here in the sixth century. The monastery still stands as does the Church of San Bartolomé and castle ruins. Today, the town is a summer playground for Europeans due to its beautiful beaches and homes with wrought iron balconies. It's become so popular that half of the population is foreign-born. Come and see why our Jávea holiday rentals are much sought after.
Situated at the foot of the Montgó Massif, Jávea is in the Costa Blanca region of Spain on the Mediterranean, just under 300 miles from Barcelona and only 180 miles from the gorgeous Balearic Islands. The town is separated into three sections: The old town, port, and beach area.
Jávea plays host to several historic and cultural sites of note. The Soler Blasco Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum highlights the history of the town as well as numerous works of local artist J.B. Segarra Llamas. The Parroquia de San Bartolomé is a Gothic church built to defend the city against pirates. It also saw much bombardment during the Spanish Civil War. The Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Loreto, built in 1967, is an example of avant-garde architecture and its 12 beams represent the apostles.
Like many other towns in the region, the old city is separated from the port and beaches by a one-mile expanse. This was done to deter raids on the town. The Jávea coastline is a separate entity from the old town and its 12-mile swath features numerous sandy beaches. El Arenal is one of the most iconic in town and you can enjoy water sports on the white sands of Granadella Cove.
The entire Costa Blanca region is synonymous with fun, sand, and sun, and a number of towns are within an easy drive of Jávea. Ten miles to the north lies the stunning town of Dénia, the capital of the Marina Alta region. Calpe and the Peñón de Ifach Nature Reserve are just 13 miles to the south. The upscale fishing village of Moraira is seven miles south and the whitewashed architecture and winding streets of Altea are 22 miles away.
Historic architecture and 12 miles of scenic coastline await your arrival in beautiful Jávea. Our vacation rentals in this gorgeous coastal town are the perfect base for your dream vacation!
