Javea is essentially split into three areas: the blue-flag beaches and shingled coves making up the coastline, the port with it's yachts and ships heading off into the Med, and the village itself.
The beaches range from the secluded pebble coves of La Granadella to the touristy hubbub of El Arenal.
On other days, the key can be obtained from the police station on deposit of an ID card or passport.

For a panorama of all this, visit the old lighthouse of Cabo de Nao, particularly good for sunset views due to it's isolated position.
Be sure to check out the Old Town, over a mile inland.
