Relocating to Javea, Costa Blanca, Spain

The cosmopolitan town of Javea on the Northern Costa Blanca is a far cry from the well known resort of Benidorm that is 30 minutes drive down the coast. Javea is a place to be seen while promenading on it´s fantastic beach front taking in the trendy bars and restaurants. Javea is made up of three very distinct areas the Arenal Beach, the Port and the Pueblo. 

The Arenal beach is a summer haven, lazing all day on the beach, then eating and drinking of an evening in one of the trendy bars and restaurants. The port has a pebble beach and a promenade lined with quality restaurants. The pueblo or known in English as the old town has the all-important church and square where you can often see a wedding celebration, or during fiestas (especially Easter) there will be many parades and other events. 

Javea is a fabulous place to live all year, it is tourist destination and the population does increase during the summer months, although during the winter there is a good sized population which means everything stays open, unlike some tourist resorts that shut up shop for half the year. All Javea´s shops, bars and restaurants stay open all year, enabling the locals to enjoy all there is to offer without the crazy crowds of August. 

There is a real community spirit in Javea with a good mix of nationalities working together to make the town a great place to live. The town is good for all ages, children have the run of the beach and national parks, teenagers love hanging out with their friends in the cool beach bars. Couples can enjoy wonderful lunches and dinners in the many restaurants, retirees enjoy the many days of sunshine and many clubs and activities Javea has to offer. Sports fanatics have everything from cycling to scuba diving, tennis to hiking, sailing to mountain climbing. Golf, bowls, paintball and many more activities that can be found in the area. 

There is a large shopping centre 20 minutes drive away, with many high street brands, like Zara, H&M, Carrefour etc. Benidorm is 30 minutes drive, Alicante and Valencia both about one hour away, these cities have an abundance of history and culture, as well as great shopping and nightlife.
When it comes to home, there are various options when living in Javea, from renting long term to buying a house, much the same as any European country. Javea has a buoyant property market whether for renting or to buying, the town is favoured by lots of different nationalities as well as the Spanish. Spanish from Valencia and Madrid love to have holiday homes in Javea, making it a great place to invest. 

Anyone thinking of moving to Spain, either to work and set-up a business or to retire, should serious consider Javea as destination as it offers the best all round living accompanied by 320 days of sun per year.
