Javea / Xàbia
If there is something that undoubtedly characterizes it, visualizing the map of Spain, it is that of being *The tip of the nose* since it has the most extreme point in the East in Cabo de la Nao on the Spanish coast.
Paradise where you can enjoy the Mediterranean culture in this privileged enclave, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by its coves, beaches, its people, culture, parties and gastronomy.
Continuing with the series of different posts on the populations that surround us and in order to extend and briefly reveal some of their characteristics, we continue with Javea / Xabia, divided into two nuclei; On the one hand, the municipality with its famous old town, full of cobbled streets with bars, restaurants and shops, as well as all the services of the town hall, schools, supermarkets, banks, etc. and Javea Costa full of incredible coves and cliffs with spectacular villas and houses dotting its beautiful landscape, where mountains, forests and sea mix.
Located in the north of the province, it is the most incoming point of the sea on the east coast, about 90 km from Ibiza, being possible on clear days to view the profile of the island from the two important ends of the place.
Dominated by the Natural Park of El Montgó, it is the most remarkable and visual summit of the region, with its more than 750 m high, it often serves as a parapet for the storms that come from the North, collaborating greatly in maintaining the local microclimate.
Bounded by some headlands which form the bay of Javea, Cabo de San Antonio to the north and Cabo de San Martín to the south, although the most important geographically is the Cabo de la Nao, which represents the part that goes further into the sea of ??this part of Spain.
