The stunning views from Mirador La Falzia Javea Video
In Spanish, a mirador usually refers to a building that has turrets, balconies or similar that afford a great view. There are no turrets or windows, not even a building at Mirador la Falzia in Xabia; it is simply one of Javea’s most impressive viewpoints, which is saying quite a lot.
The general consensus of visitors who have checked in with reviews suggests that Mirador la Falzia is an underrated gem. The site is even farther off the beaten track than most, with the actual viewpoint tucked away at the end of a fairly long road that has no other special attractions for visitors.
There are several ways to reach the Mirador, but ultimately you’ll need to get on Ctra. del Portitxol and take either Carrer Rascassa or Carrer de la Barraca, both of which connect with Calle Truita which winds around a bit and takes you close to the viewpoint. You can also take Calle Pagre off Carrer Rascassa; either way you will park at the end of a residential cul de sac, so be respectful.
Plan to get there in the morning, when the whole coast is bathed in direct sunlight and the views are utterly fabulous. Not only can you soak up vistas of sky and sea and La Barraca beach, you may spot dolphins playing near the shore. When the winds are calm you can see clearly through limpid blue-green water to the sea bottom, even from this elevation, so do not forget your camera.
Back on Ctra. del Portitxol less than 3km away is a good spot for lunch called Restaurante Trencall Javea; it’s a fine restaurant serving authentic Spanish fare, though it’s only open from March through to late September. However, consider a great alternative; take along a snack and drink. Then you can sit in the sun or in the shade of tall pine trees at the viewpoint and have all the time you wish to spend with this glorious sea and landscape.
