Javea is ideally located between Denia and Moraira which we visited last year. We drove through Javea last year but didnt have chance to look around the town so we decided to stay here for a few days.
We stayed at Camping El Naranjal https://www.campingelnaranjal.com/en/
The campsite is in a great location tucked up a quiet back road so there is no noise at all at night and costs 20 euros per night with ACSI. There are a couple of areas just outside the campsite where you can exercise dogs so it worked quite well for us.
It only took us about 10 minutes to walk down Arenal beach which is a lovely golden sandy bay. In winter they scrape the top layer of sand up so that you are allowed to let dogs on the beach. Lily had a great time playing in the sea.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants all within close vicinity too.
On one of the days we had a lovely walk along the sea front and stopped for some food at the port. The port has a gravel beach and marina, known as Duanes de la Mar. Whilst the history of the harbour stretches back to the 15th century, the first jetty was built in 1871 and it became an important gateway for the export of raisins. The raisin trade collapsed at the end of the 19th century, and the settlement became only a fishing harbour.
With Christmas only around the corner Javea makes a great place to stop as it is the home of an Iceland Overseas store which meant we could stock up on some Christmas goodies. The only downside is that the prices are quite expensive but hey it is Christmas so we decided to treat ourselves.
We really enjoyed our time here and i’m sure it is somewhere we will definitely return to in the future.
