One airport is located in the north and another popular airport further south, both are well serviced and easily accessible through car rentals and well-priced shuttle services. The A7 motorway connects the Costa Blanca and you are often blown away with some of the views on offer as you cruise down the coast. This motorway does have some toll sections, however, some have recently been removed. An alternative is the N-332 road, which runs parallel to the A7 and is free to use but can take a lot longer as you pass through many Spanish towns.

Areas for villas in Costa Blanca for rent
Javea or Xabia has one of the healthiest climates in the world, there are more recorded hours of sunshine per year on this little point of land than any other place in Spain. This is one of the reasons that people come from all over the world to visit, but there is much more to this charming town. It offers a little something for everyone. Whether it is strolling along the beach, meandering through the old town or enjoying tapas at one of the many bars/restaurants Javea has it all. Javea consists of 3 areas: The pueblo (Javea old town) with it’s amazing architecture and picturesque streets, the port offering an array of fish restaurants and the Arenal with it’s white sand and bustling promenade. Enjoy the wonderful scenery and have a total relaxing holiday. Javea really is ‘the jewel of the Costa Blanca’.
More on the area
New building developments in Javea are subject to height restrictions which mean there are no high-rise buildings unlike in other Costa Blanca towns such as Calpe or Benidorm. The locals are proud to speak not the most common type of Spanish (Castellano) but the local dialect Valencian (Valenciano) which is very similar but not quite the same as Catalan. This is why you see the local word for Javea which is Xàbia. Many would argue Javea is the finest place on the whole Costa Blanca. We wouldn’t argue too strongly with this.
More on the old town
Even today, this section of Xàbia still conserves its Medieval Layout, a unique network of narrow streets with scattered white façades, arched doorways, Gothic windows and ironworks, all finished with the zone’s characteristic “tosca” sandstone. Strolling through its streets allows us to travel into the past centuries. In the town centre, the Church called Iglesia de San Bartolomé, was built in the 14th-16th Century; an excellent example of Isabelline Gothic style. Exploring its streets, we can find all types of traditional family-owned shops as well as local “Tapas” bars and other services. You may go shopping in the Abastos Municipal Market where you can purchase local gastronomy products. Or visit the weekly street market every Thursday held in Plaza de la Constitución and Placeta del Convent selling everything from souvenirs to fresh fruit and veg.
More on the beaches and coves
You can find several of the most beautiful beaches and coves in the entire Comunitat Valenciana. Its microclimate allows to enjoy its shores all year round, both for swimming during the summer, and in winter for walks and sports. The coves that embellish Jávea are located between mountains full of Mediterranean vegetation, blending the blue sea with the mountains. If you have the opportunity to explore the bay by jet ski, sailboat, or boat, you will notice that its beaches and coves are uniquely charming. You will only find calm crystal clear waters inviting you to rest and enjoy. Many of the tourists who visit Jávea say that the most beautiful are Cala Granadella, Cala de la Barraca, and Cala Blanca.
More on the port
The Port’s origins date back to the 15th Century, in the 19th Century, the city achieved its greatest success due to the raisin export trade. The first known jetty and boat pier date back to 1871. When the raisin trade entered into crisis at the end of the 19th Century, it then solely developed the fishing activity. A neighbourhood with a major seafarer character arose around the Port with old whitewashed fishermen’s houses with ground floors and narrow streets. This neighbourhood has developed over the years without losing its charm. Duanes de la Mar is one of the liveliest neighbourhoods all year round. We can find all kinds of shops, restaurants and business services in its busy streets. Having fishing boats, the auction and subsequent fish & seafood sale in the fish market called “La Lonja” has become an essential tourist attraction for our visitors. The “Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Loreto” inaugurated in 1967 is a site not to be missed. You will also find boat trips available here in the port.
More on the arenal
Located in the centre of the Xàbia Bay, the Beach: Playa del Arenal is the town’s main tourist centre and the most well-known and popular beach visited by bathers due to its fine sand and shallow water. Acclaimed for its leisure and gastronomy, this town district has undergone major growth in recent years. Along the promenade, shopping is plentiful and in the summer there are local artisan markets held each evening. Summer nights at the Arenal Beach are very lively and with a vast array of bars and restaurants, live music and discos. This is Xàbia’s most Cosmopolitan zone, catering for all tastes it makes it an essential place to visit and the temptation to return here will be irresistible. Whether you are a family with small children, a couple or a group of girls on a weekend away The Arenal has something for you.
Cala de la barraca
If you are looking for tranquillity and beauty, you should not miss Cala de la Barraca or Cala del Portitxol. You can walk along the beach through fishers’ houses, known as barracks. One of the attractions is to spend the night on the seashore while the sea breeze lulls your dreams. Straight in front of you is the island of Portitxol. The island was inhabited since archaeological remains of the Roman era were discovered. Tourists say that a kayak tour is the best way to appreciate the cliffs. If your thing is exploring nature, do not hesitate to plan hiking activities from Cala de la Barraca to Creu del Portitxol.
Last but not least, one of the most sought-after destinations for those who believe that privacy is a determining factor when it comes to enjoyment. We are talking about a small cove called Cala Blanca or La Caleta. In this beautiful paradise white stone fuses with the crystal clear waters of La Caleta. Continuing the road, you will find a smaller cove that bears the name of La Segunda Caleta. This cove is ideal for families, as its calm waters allow children to swim safely. Another attraction in these coves are the caves made of whitish stone; the reason why the cove is called Cala Blanca.
Javea has more to offer than beaches. The majestic Montgó mountain rises above Xàbia, Dènia and Ondara and reaches a maximum height of 753 m above sea level. The zone was declared as the “Montgó Natural Park” in May 1987, which includes the cape, Cabo de San Antonio, and the plains, Las Planas, which serve as the union point between the coast and this solid Mountain formation. There are a number of species of birds present, the Bonelli eagle (Aquila fasciata) and a pair of Eurasian Eagle Owls (Bubo bubo). You will also find the common kestrel and Peregrine Falcon amongst others. If you are feeling energetic there are several walking routes to the top of the mountain where you will find some spectacular views. If you care to venture inland 20 minutes there are ample opportunities to cycle, hike or just take in the magnificent scenery by car.
Cala de la Granadella the most beautiful beach in Spain. It is located in the Granadella forest park. It is charming how the mountains merge with crystalline sea waters. Its seabed keeps unimaginable beauties. Many boats dock at this beach to enjoy activities such as swimming and diving. These paradisiacal landscapes have hosted some Hollywood personalities, such as Bruce Willis, who chose Cala de la Granadella for one of the scenes from the film The Cold Light of Day. If you are going to eat and relax in Cala de la Granadella, you should try the octopus, and rice or fideuá from Restaurante Sur in the same cove. They capture all the fish served at the venue and also prepare homemade desserts. A delight!
The great thing about villas for rent in the Costa Blanca is the choice of the three very different parts.
