Located between the capes of San Antonio and Nao, Jávea is one of the most important tourist destinations in Costa Blanca. The historic quarter, located two kilometres away from the coastline, preserves a beautiful architecture, with emblematic monuments such as the church of San Bartolomé, the city's main spot.

One of the main appeals of this region is its coastline. No less than twenty kilometres of sands and hidden coves where the visitor can enjoy a swim, and a great variety of water sports.

From Cape Nao to Granadella Cove, Jávea offers the visitor twenty kilometres of beaches and coves, ideal to enjoy the sun, the sea, and water sports.

This town in Costa Blanca, Alicante, shows its more touristy side around the area of the harbour. 
In addition to numerous accommodations, restaurants, and recreational activities, in the harbour the visitor can play all kinds of water sports, such as sailing and windsurfing, or take a boat excursion to Denia.

The beach of El Arenal is one of the most emblematic of the coast of Jávea. In this place, next to the Fontana Canal, sits the Parador de Turismo “Costa Blanca” (Inn), at a privileged location only a few metres away from the beach.

Between the islands of Portixol and Descubridor is one of the most beautiful sections of the coastline. Crystal waters and a gorgeous seabed make this place the ideal setting for scuba diving. This water sport is also popular at Granadella Cove which is, with its fine, golden sand, another attractive spot in the coast of Jávea.

The city

Located on a plain, at the foothill of the Montgó Massif, the historic quarter of Jávea was erected inland, around the fortified church of San Bartolomé, a beautiful Isabelline Gothic building, made to defend the city against pirate attacks.
On the streets of the historic quarter, the visitor will be amazed at the local architecture, the grilles on the windows of houses, and the lintels of "coarse" stone.

Another must see in the journey through the city centre is the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum, where we can learn about the history of the town. While, on the harbour, it is worthy to visit the church Our Lady of Loreto, which resembles the keel of a ship.
