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.

It is a weekend that is brimming with handicraft markets, music and activities in a privileged setting on the shores of the Mediterranean. 

Organized by the Association of Entrepreneurs and Businesspeople of Aduanas del Mar- ACEAM- the festival offers a wide variety of exhibitions, aquatic demonstrations, parades, concerts, fashion and even the last word in beauty. The idea behind this initiative is to consolidate the Costa Blanca as a reference point for the practice of all manner of water sports and to promote tourism outside the summer season, to highlight Jávea's gastronomy and in particular its star product - fish - and to increase awareness of the need to respect the sea and the beaches.

After the success of the first edition, which took place in 2012, the Festival has become a highlight of the start of the summer season in Jávea. So much so that, in later editions, the event has attracted leading figures from the world of TV and culture: last year Ángeles Ruíz, a well-known gastronomy journalist and author acted as the Festival's "Madrina" or "Patron". 

The fact is that the activities, exhibitions and workshops that take place throughout the Festival are a good mouth-opener for all the possibilities that this coastal town offers during the summertime, and indeed, why not also in spring or autumn? 

Days filled with activities for children and Mediterranean handicrafts are the starting point for what is a highly varied programme. During Jávea's Festival of the Sea we can enjoy a guided tour of the fish auction at the fishing port, we can try special menus in the GastroMar, or watch a prestigious chef put on a show cooking performance, we can have a free Pilates class, have a go at "Surf-ski-kayak", take a trip on a boat with a glass bottom so we can enjoy views of the seabed, we can even attend a fashion show! 

An absolute delight with a great variety of flavours, for all tastes and colours…
