Xàbia is situated between two points, the “La Nao” Cape and the “San Antonio” Cape. In all its extension and in each one of its three environments: the villa, the port and the sandy area, the population maintains a balance between the important traces of the civilisations that chose the area for a settlement, and the modernity of a contemporary tourist destination. In the old town are narrow streets of whitewashed houses with windows, stone doorways and balconies. The littoral is made up of, beaches, coves and select housing estates, joined together by a string of viewing-points.
How to get here:
