The roads are titled differently in Spain and it is important to know what type of route you are on at all times.
- A motorway is called an autopista and will have an A or E before the number on any road signs. Often these are toll roads and carry with them a speed limit of 120kph.
- A dual carriageway is called an autovia. Speed limits range between 80kph to 120kph.
- The local highways are called Carretera Local. Speed limit is generally 100kph but can be much lower in some stretches.
- The national highway is called the Carretera National and will be marked with an N or CN before any number on a sign. Speed limits range between 60kph and 100kph.
- Country roads are called Carretera Camarcal and will be marked with a C before the number. Speed limits range between 80kph and 100kph.
Javea is a great place to select for a holiday. It has a vibrant, welcoming culture and plenty of great beaches to enjoy during the long, warm months. The town is also bustling with activities and there are plenty of places to eat and bars to keep you busy for weeks. Unfortunately this also makes it a very desirable destination for people from all over Europe and the rest of the world. As such, it does not offer the ‘cheap and cheerful’ accommodation found in other resort towns on the coast. Because of this, it is pretty important to take care and try to keep costs at a reasonable level.
