The northern Costa Blanca has undoubtedly more than its share of gorgeous shoreline, but for the main factors to guarantee a fantastic beach holiday, the Arenal Beach in Jávea stands head and shoulders above all the rest. The location has everything a beach-lover could want and more!

The Arenal Beach wins the Blue Flag year after year and is also the only completely sandy beach in the resort. It’s almost half a kilometre in length and gains the award for its meticulous standards of cleanliness and possesses almost every amenity you could wish for. If you have young children there are great play areas, with both sun and shade, specially designed for them and the Arenal’s wide, shallow gently sloping shore-front makes it ideal for them.

Parents of older kids can even keep an eye on them from many of the cafes and bars on the promenade if desired, and of course there are qualified lifeguards on duty all day during the summer season. Along the palm-lined Promenade facing the beachfront you’ll find all the food and drink you could possibly want, in a variety to suit just about every taste and budget. Many are family oriented but if you’re looking for a romantic dining experience you can find plenty of opportunities for that too.
