The Tourist Attractions of Javea:
Javea has been a popular destination for some decades now, because it offers more than just a lovely beach. The beaches in Javea are great, but this coastal town also has an attractive old town and a port to attract tourists too.
Javea Old Quarter
It’s Javea’s Old Quarter that sets this Spanish coastal town apart from some of the more modern creations. This atmospheric part of the town features narrow winding streets and is the perfect place to explore on foot. It was once walled so as to protect it from pirates, and you can still see a few small remaining parts of the fortifications. There are numerous older buildings to see in this part of Javea but particularly look out for the Church of Sant Bartomeu which dates back to the 14th century. See if you can spot some of the damage from bullets and shells that was caused during the Spanish Civil War.
Just opposite the church is the market which is still the life of the town. If you’re staying in self catering accommodation you might like to visit the market to pick up fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, and local meats.
Javea’s Port, known as Duanes del Mar, is also a popular spot for tourists. There are some sights to see here too and a number of bars and restaurants to try out, along with the bars and restaurants you’ll also find in the Old Quarter.
Arenal Beach Area
If the beach is calling you in Javea then the main area for enjoying the beach is Arenal. Here you’ll find many of Javea’s hotels, restaurants and bars and of course a very nice sandy beach. Most of Javea comes alive during the summer but the Arenal area in particular always has something going on. There are usually locals setting up stalls to sell handmade crafts, as well as street entertainers, and of course lively bars.
