For us fishing enthusiasts, fishing in Jávea or Xàbia is the most fun thing to do in this lovely wonderful place. Situated on the Mediterranean coast between Valencia and Alicante, Javea lies between the Cape San Antonio and Cape de la Nau. The island of Ibiza lies some 90 kilometres (55 mi) to the east, and it can be seen on clear days.

Its proximity to the off shore waters of the Ibiza Channel, with areas up to 900 m depth, provides easy access to many pelagic species of game fish — spearfish, albacore, little tunny and of course bluefin tuna. Inshore waters are home to predators such as bluefish, amberjack, leerfish, barracuda and dentex.

Tips & Tricks, bait and more

Passing through the Ibiza Channel is mandatory for the large predators like the bluefin tuna and the albacore that go to spawn around the Balearic Islands and the Leon Gulf. The port of Jávea is strategically well-located for big game fishing, since only 20 miles from the coast, you can find depths of 900 meters.

Around the Cape of San Antonio, the sea floor is rocky with some sandy patches: very atractive for jigging or for trolling with downrigger for dentex and amberjack. Here, bluefish and leerfish are also possible catches.

Reef fishing in Javea will produce species such as conger eel, red scorpion fish, blackspot seabream, snapper and red porgy.
