Five of our favourite seaside villages in Costa Blanca

Javea is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Javea here, but first some important information about the Holiday Property Bond. It is designed to provide holidays for life but it is an investment product so subject to charges, your capital is at risk and you may not be able to cash in during the first two years. For further details please read "How HPB Works"

Spanning all the way from Barcelona to the Spanish-French border, the Costa Blanca is full of wonderful places to explore. With hidden caves, ancient castles, cobbled streets and whitewashed houses, not to mention the delicious food and drink on offer throughout, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

To help you really discover the best of the region, we’ve compiled a list of five of our top villages and towns in the Costa Brava. These are all less than an hour by car from our beloved Javea properties, making them perfect for a day trip.

Jávea

Our Costa Blanca property is nestled in the traditional fishing town of Jávea, which is, in itself, a stunning area to explore. The beautiful beach makes for a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon, while the winding streets are brimming with restaurants, bars, shops and much more. Javea is split into three main areas; the Arenal, Port and Old Town. The Arenal area surrounds the glorious sandy beach, while the Port is where the fisherman still come and go with their catches throughout the day. However, for us, the Old Town is a real highlight, providing a fascinating glimpse into the town’s historic past. Here you’ll find the church of Sant Bartomeu, as well as the daily market where you can pick up some fresh produce for your evening meal!

Dénia – 20 minutes via CV-736

Denia is known for it’s history and amazing sights, which include a fascinating 11th Century castle, expansive museums and some spectacular festivals. Once you’ve had your fill of the history and culture, there are also some lovely beaches and coves where you can relax… or even try your hand at all manner of water sports! The National Park of Montgó is also nearby, where you can enjoy a walk surrounded by nature and breathtaking views.

Once you’ve enjoyed your fair share of exploring, Dénia is also a popular choice for sampling some of the area’s most delicious cuisine – it’s not advertised as the City of Gastronomy for nothing! With Dénia’s rich history of fishing and surrounding rice fields, this is the perfect place to sample some amazing seafood.

Altea – 40 minutes via AP-7

Proclaimed by many to be one of the best villages in Spain, Altea is a must-see during your break. The old urban area, in particular, is well worth a visit, with its narrow streets, clean white buildings and lush greenery. Don’t miss the bright blue dome of the famous church (which is also worth a visit) peeking out between the buildings! Artists and photographers often travel to Altea to take advantage of the area’s beauty and natural light, and you’re bound to be similarly inspired when you pay a visit.

The village runs all the way from the mountains down to the Mediterranean, and is brimming with beautiful viewpoints where you can admire the sunset and peaceful atmosphere. There are many squares dotted across the town, with many restaurants and cafes spilling out onto the cobbles and creating a blissful spot to enjoy a coffee or glass of wine.

Calpe – 35 minutes via CV-741

The ancient fishing settlement of Calpe has grown over time, and now combines old Valencian culture with plenty of modern facilities. The town is also known for having three of the coast’s most beautiful sandy beaches, as well as the iconic Rock of Ifach, which visitors are able to climb for some spectacular views. The Moorish quarter is another good choice for sightseeing, with its old town walls and Iglesia Vieja church, which is a fantastic example of Mudejar-Gothic architecture. It’s also another good choice for foodies - choose from fresh seafood in the port or luxury gormet dining, as well as all the traditional tapas bars!

Villajoyosa – 50 minutes via AP-7

Villajoyosa is known for being one of the most scenic villages in this part of the Mediterranean, with its colourful houses, mountainous surroundings and beautiful beaches. Compared to it’s neighbour Benidorm, this picture-perfect village is packed with traditional charm and hidden gems, from the seafront with its rainbow of fisherman’s houses, to the walled town centre with its gothic architecture. The local beaches here are a popular choice for water sports, so if you want to get involved be sure to visit some of the companies on the beach. If you’re after a more relaxed visit, it’s easy to spend a few hours wandering around the many shops, bars and restaurants.

Perhaps surprisingly, Villajoyosa is famous for its chocolate industry, which has been a major part of the town since the 19th Century. Its efficient port meant it was easy to import cocoa from Ecuador and Venezuela, and the famous chocolate brand ‘Valor’ was founded here. Today Valor chocolate can be found in most shops and supermarkets across Spain.

Of course, this is just the start of the fantastic places and attractions on offer in this wonderful part of Spain. Part of the joy of enjoying a holiday in Javea is that you can do as much or as little as you like. Whether you want to get out and explore the surrounding area, stroll around the town or simply relax by the pool, the choice is yours.
