Javea Hotels  /  Self-Catering Rentals in Javea

If you haven't given any thought about your next vacation destination you should take Javea into consideration. Besides the great beaches and the almost perfect weather conditions, Javea has other things to offer that should be taken into consideration by all tourist that visit this small town in Spain.

Take for example the Safari Park Vergel where visitors can discover the delights of the Animal Kingdom in a fun-packed environment consisting of 35 hectares of land that are the home to approximately 1400 animals and about 145 different species. Visitors have the possibility to go round the park using the car and have the option of three routes to see African lions, Bengal tigers and herbivores. You can also walk around the open sections which are cleverly split by theme: African birds, oceanic fauna, Iberian fauna, large herbivores and more.

If you are into nightlife, Javea is the place to be - more specific, the Achill Nightclub. The disco atmosphere here is at its best; hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s are played, creating a great atmosphere. Seating is abundant inside, and for a change of scenery with less noise the outside patio in the summer is the perfect spot for a chat and that amazing view. Here you will find a great mix of DJs from all of Costa Blanca. Generally speaking, the music you will hear here is a combination of dance, techno and house (depending on the DJ and the night). More than that, at certain times during the year, they hold party nights like 70s disco nights or R&B nights.

Moving on, Javea also has Crazy Daisy's which is a terrific smallish bar located between Scallops and Nanyos on the Arenal. The drinks here are extremely reasonable and they have a big projector installed where they show all sorts of sporting events for fans. Here you will find a friendly atmosphere and the bar staff make you feel just like you were home.

If you are into bowling, you might want to check Ozone bowling for a pleasant evening. A much advertised local attraction on the Costa Blanca is Mundomar in Benidrom, a great park. Once you will get into the park, you will spot the colorful parrots, the flamencos and the sea lions. Next, you will notice the bats that are all behind a thick glass screen in a very dark room but you will spot them without any difficulties. Besides the above mentioned, you will see monkeys, limas, dolphins as well as other animals.

During this period, visitors have the possibility to go to the Artisan Fair in Javea Old Town which is the traditional Easter Fair. The stalls here have a wide variety of tasty goods including traditional cheeses and salamis, Moroccan sweets. Other things you will find here: herbs & spices, ceramics, candles and various artworks. It is a delight of color and a rather unique atmosphere. The local surrounding bars will be open to provide food and refreshments for all.

All in all, Javea is becoming more and more popular for obvious reasons as it has plenty of sightseeing possibilities as well as great accommodation conditions thanks to the boom of the real estate market.
