Jávea is located on Spain's Costa Blanca coast - and has a year round warm climate with average temperatures ranging from 11º centigrade in winter to 27º in summer. Typically the average temperature is 15º and above from April through to November. In summer the maximum daytime temperature can reach 40º. The current weather in nearby Alicante is:
The landscape is of low mountains with fertile valleys leading to the coast. Citrus and olive groves are commonplace. It is protected by the Montgó mountain which stands at 753 metres and dominates the view.
The town consists of the playa with a full range of restaurants and bars and the commercial districts a little further inland. The port remains a working fishing centre and hosts a modern marina. The old town has many shops and plenty of cafés and restaurants.
The town has a 'no high rise' building policy - so development here is low scale and much less intense than at 'resort' locations along the coast. Consequently, if nightlife is your thing Jávea may not have all you need!
However, if a more relaxed holiday appeals Jávea is just right for you - and is now home to many ex-pats and Spanish alike.
What's on in Jávea
Throughout the year there are usually many festivals - many based on Christian themes and some with Pagan origins.
Although not quite the same as the Pamplona bull run - Jávea does have a 'bulls in the street' festival early in September!
