WALK OF THE WEEK
Official Trails: PR CV-354 La Granadella
The second longest trail in the network, the PR CV-354 path passes through the undulating hills to the south of the town in an area known as the “Parque Forestal de Granadella”, an area of protected beauty that has often been called the “lungs of the Costa Blanca”.
Visiting Jávea: The Port

Post-BREXIT UK nationals entering Spain are now regarded as third-country nationals and will be required to apply for residency through general immigration.
Hidden Xàbia: The Story of a Love Set in Stone

It’s a little known legend rooted in the mists of time but is these days clearly on view to anyone passing along the northern flanks of the grand headland of San Antonio, either by sea or on foot. It is the story of Melcior i Gràcia.
Exploring Further: Days Out and Weekends Away
Xàbia is a wonderful place to explore. However, it is also a great base to explore the region, either as a fun day out for all the family, or as a longer weekend away for a celebration or just simply to enjoy what Spain has to offer. These are our experiences; they give you an idea to go away and create your own.
