Fans of this coastal Spanish town are coming from all over the globe these days and for good reason. Not only is the town coveted for its near-perfect climate, it is a place that is rich with history and gorgeous architecture.

The World Health Organization heralds Javea for its beautiful climates, naming it one of the best in the world. Shielded by mountains on both sides of the town, Javea is protected from any harsh Mediterranean winds.
