One of the things we like about Javea is that there are 3 distinct Areas - the Arenal, the Port and the Old Town. Each has a different character. The apartment is in the Arenal area, which is modern and lively. The sea front has an excellent beach, and a promenade with many good restaurants.

The port area contains the harbour where local fishing boats come in with their catch. It operates as a working small town, and has a sea front with bars and restaurants.

Javea old town is a traditional Spanish town, and quite different from the Arenal and Port areas. It has pretty old narrow streets, town squares and great Spanish tapas bars and restaurants
