Javea Port – A Wheelchair Accessible Route

If you have a wheelchair attachment or trike, then this wheelchair accessible route to Javea Port is a must. It starts at El Arenal or can be reversed and start at Javea Port! Its relatively flat and follows the coastline passing a more rustic beach.  Is a beautiful ride /trike and you can take your time, with the waves in the distance and the sun in your face.

A Wheelchair Accessible Route to Javea Port

Head towards the Parador Hotel along this flat road and walk across the bridge over the canal

A nice flat walk

Cross the bridge over the canal and keep going or drop down on the right hand side and explore the canal first.

There is a designated cycle track here which makes it a nice leisurely route without the worry of traffic. Also this year, the council are trialing taking up part of the road for walkers and cyclists.

The route is approximately 2.5km and with very little incline.  For able-bodied friends and relatives, bicycles can be hired from Xabia’s bikes. Read my blog here.

There are restaurants and bars along this stretch so you can stop for a break should you need it. In the summer months you can visit the  chiringuitos (temporary bars) facing the sea. Access to these bars is mixed and an independent wheelchair user might need assistance across the rough ground and into the platform.

I hope that all of these  bars have a disabled access toilet but I haven’t visited them all so I cannot say for certain. I know that Mintt does have.   As I have stated in previous blogs, the port has some steep inclines and awkwardly cambered pathways but the area nearest the sea and Avenida Ray Jaime 1 is relatively flat and has a really nice spanish feel about it. In  the summer they have a small tourist market here in the evenings.
