By the time May comes around, the springtime in Jávea is bursting with colour and joie-de-vivre, in part due to the Festival of the Sea, a major cultural, tourist, commercial and sporting event in which the region's businesses present their latest creations for the new season.

On the last weekend in June, the beautiful town of Jávea holds its International Festival, a mix of culture, gastronomy, music and world class dance, with stalls representing 22 countries where visitors can sample typical products from different regions. The afternoons are filled with regional dance from each country as well as exhibitions and activities for all ages.
Benidorm's amazing aquatic festival opens its doors in July, offering over 12 hours of uninterrupted music and fun, with sensational light and sound effects continuing through the night, refreshing the long hot summer days. The fun starts at the Neptuno Aquatic Festival.
