12 Nov – We moved on to Javea

Javea is situated approx 100km South of Valencia.  It has a delightful sea front with a nicely developed promenade. The beach is sandy and curves gently between two rocky outcrops.  It is surprising how mountainous it is so close to the coast.

We were surprised at how much we liked the Bay with its restaurants and shops. Being low season it had a relaxed atmosphere.  It was a lovely place for an evening stroll.  

There is also an old port which is still an active fishing port.  Again, it was surrounded by mountains.  Some have been built upon but there are still plenty of undeveloped areas.  On our second day we walked along the sea front road to the port.  We walked along the sea wall taking in the scenery and had coffee and cake sitting in  the sun.

The next day we walked up to the old town which, as usual, was all uphill.  We were directed by the campsite staff through the orange groves.

Walk through the orange groves at Javea. Nice houses too!

We still managed to take a wrong turn but were redirected by a helpful  English couple who are regular visitors to the town.  The old town was well worth the trek and we returned via the port, and Lidl.  Plenty of exercise!
