Jávea Local Customs

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    The Moorish girls Fantastic costumes Beautiful Spanish brown backs WOW! The whole family joins in!

Jávea Warnings and Dangers

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Recently near Alicante there have been gangs of people targeting tourists arriving at Alicante airport getting hire cars by highjacking them on the motorway.They follow you for a few miles and then clip your car so you have to pull over and then they nick your hire car and all it's contents.The police are cracking down on this and several gangs have been caught .Also there have been gangs going around breaking into properties etc.But the police are doing there thing and catching gangs.Just be aware that this kind of thing does happen.Be sensible at the airport and do not flash money or jewllery around and try and look confident and secure.Always lock your car and hide valubles and always lock your property up and have the telephone for police at hand.This may sound scary but it's better to be aware of it than not.Saying this crime is still lower in Spain than England and police in Spain are doing a good job to get rid of these menacing gangs and the crime rate is dropping.

Jávea Off The Beaten Path

  • Guadalest - a well worn beaten path...

    Some of the most popular day trips from Javea are destinations in their own right. (See my Altea and Alicante pages).But if you are prepared to get up early, before the coaches set off from the coast, and close your eyes to the tacky tourist shops in Guadalest, it is quite a spectacular day visit. The road up to this fortified village, perched on...

Jávea Favorites

    by Marislova Written Jul 21, 2010

    Favorite thing: Around Javea port beach, you will find a lot of beautiful viewpoints at the hills and the beaches down there. All blue sea flags. All those place you can reach only by car and some by walking through the hills. Most of those beautiful beaches are considered rock beaches. That way is desirable that your wear a water shoe to avoid hurt your feet and get easier to the ocean or walk on the rocks.

    Fondest memory: The most colorful see I ever see. A really beautiful landscape

    Jávea es un pueblo maravilloso y una joya escondida en mi opinión. Llegamos por bus, a un costo relativamente bajo, de Valencia y sólo se tarda aproximadamente 2 horas para llegar allí. Luego nos fuimos a dar un paseo por las colinas y disfrutamos del hermoso paisaje. Después nos dieron algo de comer en una cafetería / restaurante encantador y nos dirigimos hacia la oficina de turismo para obtener información. Una vez que llegamos esta información nos fuimos al puerto y luego a la playa. En lugar de la arena de la playa es de piedras y también cuenta con aguas cristalinas. Perfecto para nadar! Luego nos fuimos al centro de la ciudad y visitamos la plaza de la ciudad y se veía en todos los bellos edificios y patios. Después de que luego nos fuimos a la Museo arqueológico y etnográfico Soler Blasco de la plaza del pueblo y fue maravilloso ver a los viejos estilos de vida del pasado. en general, disfruté muchísimo de mi viaje a Javea y lo recomiendo
