And if you’re there til late afternoon, you can browse the little market stalls that sell all sorts of artesian items ranging from jewellery, bags, art, gifts and trinkets.

Montañar I and II beaches

Spa’s & beauty

There are two good spa’s in or near Javea and a great selection of beauticians and hairdressers.

You’ll be amazed to learn how the grapevines of today, grew from old strawberry fields of yesterday.
