From San Antonio to La Nau. From Granadella to La Barraca. From the Arenal to Ambolo. From Montgó to the Mediterranean. Jávea is capes, coves, beaches by definition Nature. A natural, unique environment because of its distinctive morphology which converts the sea into a series of never-ending experiences as it meets the coast, be it beach or cliff, and always observed by those urban eyes, which as though hidden and expectant, watch from within the mountain. Javea opens its interior to the Mediterranean, which has sculpted with its ebb and flow, the particular natural scenery of the coast.
