About Jávea

Jávea is regarded as the jewel of the Costa Blanca


Jávea is the Spanish, or Castilian name for the town and Xàbia is its Valencian name, reflecting difference between the local Valencian language which is a dialect of Catalan and mainstream Spanish.


Situated on the most easterly point of Mainland Spain, with its wonderful natural scenery of capes, coves and beaches. Jávea is landmarked by the impressive bulk of the mountain Montgó rising to a height of 743m above the Mediterranean. This provides a dramatic backdrop for the resort, including Finca Montgó.

Montgo wide awake!

Those who live here, swear blind it's an elephant, turned to stone, with its trunk dipping into the sea for a drink. It's a strange phenomenon but you can even see the elephant's eye close as the sun goes down... especially if you've had too much sangria!

Approximately 100kms from Valencia and 90 kms from Alicante, Jávea is famous for its crystal clear waters, white sand beaches, has been voted as one of the healthiest places in the World to live by the World Health Organisation and boasts 320 days of sunshine a year with an average temperature of 21 degrees!






The town of Jávea consists of three centres, the Old Town (Pueblo), the Port (Puerto) and the beach area (Arenal) each with its own distinct identity.
