For those looking for a place to retire with an excellent quality of life, Jávea is the perfect destination. In the spectacular surroundings of the Costa Blanca, good weather is guaranteed and both the vitamin C from the sun and the benefits of the sea water contribute to good health.

In this article we detail ten reasons why you should consider Javea as a place to live in retirement. As you will see, there are different reasons that make this coastal town a perfect place to spend this stage of your life.

1.Ideal climate

It goes without saying that the Mediterranean climate is one of the most suitable for retirement. The last thing you need at this age is to lock yourself indoors and in this sense, Jávea offers many hours of sunshine and pleasant temperatures all year round.

So you can walk along the beach or inland routes to keep active. It has been proven that spending time outdoors brings physical and mental benefits, so living in a place that encourages this has a direct impact on people’s wellbeing.

2. Paradise beaches

One of the main attractions of Jávea are its first-class beaches and coves. You can choose between white sandy areas to relax or nooks and crannies where the land merges with the Mediterranean. Variety is the spice of life!

As we have already mentioned, the sea water has important benefits and that is why it is important to be in contact with it, whether you enjoy long walks or refreshing baths. Furthermore, these areas are in perfect condition and you will find all the infrastructures and services necessary to guarantee your comfort.

In addition to the typical sea and beach scenery, in Jávea you will find natural areas with the native fauna and flora of the Mediterranean. This is ideal for outdoor activities, such as perfectly signposted hiking trails or cycling while breathing fresh air. There is no better way to ensure a healthy lifestyle.

This combination of coast and inland is one of the great attractions of moving to the Valencian Community, as it allows you to enjoy the environment in a wide variety of spaces, making everyday life more entertaining and less monotonous.

4. Culture and heritage

But anyone who thinks that Jávea only offers a beach and nature is very wrong. Being one of the nerve centres of the Mediterranean coast, it has a historical and cultural heritage of great interest, so you can combine leisure and relaxation activities with visits to important places in the history of the town.

In addition to churches and museums, here you will find the essence of a Mediterranean town, with the tradition of living facing the sea but also with the adaptation to a city used to welcoming visitors and residents from abroad as well as from the rest of Spain.

5. Health services

Obviously, when you reach a certain age, health takes on a fundamental role and that’s why you won’t have to worry about it in Jávea.
