Like the rest of the Costa Blanca, Javea-Xabias climate is warm. The Montgo protects
the town from cold in winter and the easterly breezes mitigate the heat in summer.
The average annual temperature is 16.5ºC.
The average temperatures throughout the year in Centigrade are:
The historic quarter
Located between the capes of San Antonio and Nao, Javea is one of the most important
tourist destinations on the Costa Blanca. The historic quarter, located two kilometres
away from the coastline, preserves a beautiful architecture, with emblematic monuments
such as the church of San BartolomÃ© and the city's neuralgic centre.
One of the main attractions of this region is its coastline. No less than twenty
kilometres of sands and hidden coves where visitors can enjoy a swim and a wide
variety of water sports.
From the San Antonio cape to Granadella cove, Javea is a perfect example of the varied
coastline along the Costa Blanca. Sailing, diving or simply swimming can be unique
experiences here. To the north, the coast offers the chance to delve into the depths
of the San Antonio cape marine nature reserve. Boats are available for hire at the
port, and the schools it houses provide sailing classes. In summer it's possible to
sail a boat down the coast as far as Denia. The rocky coast with crystal clear waters
to the south of the port is perfect for diving whilst the long beach of fine sand
further south is ideal for sunbathing and has summer facilities offering windsurfs
or paddle boats for rent. The coast is even more beautiful and unspoilt between San
MartÃn and La Nao capes and between the islands of Portichol and Descubridor where
the seabed is ideal for diving. This coastline ends with the golden sands and clear
waters of the attractive Granadella cove so popular amongst beach-goers. Two diving
clubs, a golf course and plenty of accommodation, bars and restaurants and leisure
activities all combine to enhance this highly appreciated tourist resort.
Fishing Port and Marina
Javea-Xabia´s first jetty and pier were built in 1871. Many products were handled
here, but especially raisins for export. This trade, which grew in importance,
caused the establishment of official services; a Customs office, hygiene control
and a marina.
The crisis in the raisin trade at the end of the 19th century had a negative impact
on the port and reduced its activity to solely fishing. The tourist boom of the
sixties, however, brought with it the development of the Marina.
Nowadays, fishing port has a fleet of 20 crafts of which:
7 are devoted to haulage fishing
6 to smaller fishing activities
5 to sardine and anchovy fishing and 2 to boulter fishing
In the evening, one can watch the fish auction that takes place at the docks warehouse.
The modern Marina has two different areas:
Approximately 120 moorings, corresponding to the public offer of the port with ground
and launching service, rubbish disposal and also many possibilities for water
The Nautical Club, built in 1.963 is situated in the centre of the port, opposite
the garbour entrance, and has 352 moorings, depth 2-8, water, electricity, workshop,
crane, sailing school and buoys. It is situated 38º 48 ' 00 N - 00º 11 ' 02 E.
Healthy, versatile, with a thousand different flavours. Rice is one of the
most widely consumed foods in the world, and is a vital ingredient in
Spanish cuisine. It is no coincidence that Spain is Europes second largest
rice producer. In Spanish restaurants you will find a huge variety of
delicious, rice-based dishes. The famous paella is just one of them.
Fiestas in the region of Valencia
Fire, music, light and colour...
In towns and cities throughout the whole of the Region of Valencia and

popular participation, colourfulness and spectacular nature, take place.

as religious, popular or historic subject matters.
Amongst the more than a thousand fiestas that are held, those to be
particularly highlighted are the ones that have been declared of National

hospitality and invitation to participate in the festive events turn into a social
happening in all the towns and cities.
Welcome to Club de Golf Javea
This brief description of Javea leads us to believe that, to complete the picture,
a golf club is needed where golfers can come and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.
To cover this need, the Club de Golf Javea was built. It is a course of nine
holes, S.S. 72, with 2 putting greens, driving range , 2 tennis courts and a
large swimming pool with a paddling pool for the young children.
The choice of the land used has given us wide, open fairways that sometimes flatter
the golfer, but greens that are very well protected by bunkers.
A part from the course, the club has a large, well developed club-house with a bar,
a restaurant, a Pro-Shop, television and card rooms, besides the changing rooms and
the caddy area.
