What to see in Xàbia/Jávea
The coves along the Xàbia/Jávea stretch of the coastline are veritable treasures of the Mediterranean. El Arenal is an ideal choice if you’re looking for services and a beach close to the town, whereas if you’re on the hunt for something a little bit wilder, don’t miss El Portixol cove, which offers a full day out spent discovering the little islet and photographing its blue doors, as many have before.
And there are plenty more coves for you to explore: Sardinera, Granadella, El Tangó next to the port, El Francés, El Ministro and De Ambolo. Defined by their clear waters and beautiful cliffs and rocks, the Xàbia/Jávea coastline is a paradise for lovers of diving.
The centre of Xàbia/Jávea is just as enchanting as its beaches so make sure you leave ample time to wander idly around. There are a couple of walks you can take, such as that up to Les Pesqueres viewing point as well as a route that will lead you to all the viewing points in the town as well as monuments such as Acequia de la Noria.
Walking to Cova Tallada de Xàbia/Jávea is another unique experience. And if you’re in the mood for a party, we recommend visiting the destination during its Moros y Cristianos festival and Hogueras de San Juan.
Xàbia/Jávea also has a large number of restaurants where you can have a bite to eat, savouring a wide selection of dishes such as classics from the area including pulpo seco (dried octopus), arroces marineros (rice with seafood), gamba roja (red shrimp) and guisos de pescado (fish stews).
