Hey David, I like your fotos of Javea, especially the ones of the Tango Bar. We used to go there every time when we were in Spain. But I am shoked to see the Arenal. I did'nt know thats that bad today.

Thanks, Beatrice. 2009 was very bad for tourism and retail in Spain. The Costa Blanca was particularly badly hit. Hopefully things will pick up a bit this year. If you want to open a shop - now is the time! Plenty of properties to rent or buy available! The Arenal seems to be the worst area as it is TOTALLY reliant on tourism in the summer months. Javea old town and port have a level of all year round trade from the resident population. The Arenal during the winter is dead, dead, dead...
