Jávea (Xàbia in Valenciano) is a small, coastal town located in the Alicante province of Valencia region. Hugging the blue Mediterranean waters and the rolling Montgó, this picturesque resort offers a blend of traditional and modern Spanish culture. The old Jávea town is a joy to explore with its narrow, winding streets, Gothic architecture and authentic Spanish markets.
Jávea’s rich history dates back to the prehistoric era. Many different populations have inhabited the area including Phoenicians, Visigoths, Carthaginians, Moors, Romans, and Greeks. The influence of these cultures is evident in the rich and diverse gastronomy which caters for a variety of tastes and pleasure. Many of the quaint restaurants and eateries offer a buzz of culture and conversation, and some offer views of the sea and bustling promenade nightlife.
Being the most eastern point in mainland Spain, and about a 10km drive from the national Road and Highway we are more secluded than many of the usual busy tourist resorts along the Costa Blanca. Jávea offers a year-round fun and entertaining lifestyle, while at the same time allowing residents to retreat to a more relaxed and quiet atmosphere in the surrounding residential areas.
We are a truly multi-cultural destination with many of our residents hailing from Britain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Italy, Poland, and Germany. According to a recent census, nearly half the population are Central and Northern Europeans, with British, Dutch and Germans among the top residents and visitors.
