Travel Tips for Jávea
Moors and Christians Festivals
These wonderful parades celebrating the win of Christians over the Moors all those years ago is featured in every Spanish town on the Costa Blanca. They remember the invasion of the Moors and how the Christians overcame them. Locals dress up as either a Moor or a Christian and it runs through famlies for the celebrations. Most people want to be Moors because of the fantastic dress
This is another nice place to stop,if you are visiting all Javea area and around:
Moraira nestles in the pine-clad hills overlooking fine sandy beaches, calm seas and rocky coves. This area is also renowned for its superb eating grapes grown to perfection on the neat, sunny terraces which slope gently down the sides of the valley towards the sea.
Javea - a town under construction!
"Javea then and now"
My Title for this page was simply intended to make it clear that I intended to return to add some text but when I opened it now, it seemed apt - so it is staying!
Javea is under construction - if not destruction.
When we first went to spend a few weeks winter in Javea after we retired there were small orange farms within 5 minutes walk of this beach.
Now the construction of new developments seems to be going on everywhere you look and the character of the town is rather different. Even the climate seems to have changed so after a rather cold time of it on our last visit we decided to have a "holiday" from Javea.
I think we will go back one day because of the good memories we have of the town and the area and some of the people we have met there.
"Spring in Spain"
February and March can be lovely months to visit this part of Spain. There are fewer people about but some facilities are either closed for the winter or open shorter hours.
But the blossoms of the fruit trees and the oranges make a colourful sight as you drive through the country.
British but not tacky
"vinegar with your fish & chips?"
We spent some of our time driving around Javea, admiring the beautiful villas with hill top views. This place really is home to some extravagent private villas.
The beach in Javea is clean and all amenities are available from supermarkets, Burger Kings to cheapo tourist shops. But non of this is tacky.
There is a very strong british influence because I believe there are alot of British residents and holiday makers. If you don't speak a word of spanish it really isn't be a problem, most of the shopkeepers seem prepared for this. Infact there is a fish & chip shop just by the beach and the supermarket sells numerous British newspapers!
