The best coves in Jávea

If you ask those who have had the privilege of visiting this part of the world why it is so desirable, they will surely answer because Javea has the best coves in the Mediterranean. Its varied orography makes this place a real natural jewel that cannot be ignored for a summer trip. 

The presence of the summit of the Montgó, is the one that serves as protection from the storms that come from the north. Perhaps that is why in a study carried out in the 90's, Javea was declared the first best microclimate in the world, followed by Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
