Day Trip to Javea
03 September 2020 @ 20:50

Last weekend took us to Javea, a coastal town an hour or so south of Valencia. It wasn’t the first time I had been to Javea but it was the first time in summer, funnily enough. Although we avoided the summer crowds, which were much less than I had anticipated, most probably due to the Covid-19 impact, we were still able to have a wonderful weekend. I managed to get in a quick round of golf and also visit a fantastic beach which I had never seen before and also enjoyed a wonderful meal in a restaurant with privileged views of the Mediterranean sea. All in all a great weekend away, and a place I would highly recommend for those who haven’t visited before.



We went to the Granadella beach, which is a rural cove with a shingle beach, boulders and pebbles with crystalline water. It is located in the most southern zone of Javea. This is certainly one of Javea’s little treasures and has been awarded the blue flag since 1987. It reminded me of the coves in the Balearic Islands which I enjoyed so much in the past. Although it’s not something that I practice, it is highly recommended for scuba diving. The waters are simply crystalline and just perfect. 



If this hadn’t been enough we were fortunate to get a table at the Restaurant Cabo La Nao (Carretera Cabo la Nao 154), which serves typical local Mediterranean food, mainly rice dishes. The value for money was surprisingly good given the location and the quality of the food.  The restaurant sits on top of a cliff next to the Cabo la Nao lighthouse and the terrace literally hangs over the edge enabling you to see at least 100m down a sheer rock face all the way to the sea below, quite a view. It was really a wonderful meal and a great day out with the family.

Fabulous destination, any time of the year.
Totally agree with your comments regarding the good value at the restaurant, especially at lunchtime.
