This is a nice beach with a gently sloping shore into the sea. It's not a big or long beach but it is really pleasant and edged with bars and restaurants.

A great sandy safe beach. Loved it, lovely views, would recommend to anyone. It's super nice. Lots of bars close to try and maybe eat at. All available maybe a bit pricey but really decent.

This beach is lovely. It is shallow with small waves. The water was warm- probably due to the depth. There is disabled access and a range of cafes and restaurants to go to for refreshments.

The Arenal Beach is full of sea grass, whether it's deliberate in order to save the sand or the cost of removing it is down to the townhall. My two grandchildren did not like it and considered the beach to be 'dirty'.

We are travelling to Javea next week and staying in the Port area.My question is "are local taxis available at this time of year to travel to Arenal beach?"

Response fromVerona7621|
Yes they will be. There is a taxi rank next to Noray Reataurant in the port or just get one of the bars to call you one.

Arenal renovations complete? (5 Replies)
Are the much anticipated reno to Arenal beach and promenade near completion? They were expecting to be finished by Easter-- We usually go in May and Sept so just deciding if we should look elsewhere this spring as with 2 little ones, most of our time is spent there.

I was in Javea the other day and they are still working on it.
