Yes, the area for wild camping in Javea by Scallops Restaurant has been fenced off this year, but a number of vehicles are now parked up on the car park opposite, in the area used by the fairground. However, I understand the mayor is 'not keen' on motorhomers parking up anywhere other than the two campsites in Javea. The local police are therefore under instruction to move people on as much as possible. That said, it depends how often they patrol the area and what other issues they have to deal with, and so you might be lucky for a night or two. The local police are not 'heavy handed' either and so will normally tell you to oik it with a smile.
As for the mayor himself, he is A1 and not like the vast majority of politicians here who can spell graft and corruption in a staggering number of languages. It's just he has a thing about motorhomers. He has even been shown a copy of the Aires Book for Spain/Portugal to show him that, with a small outlay on facilities, he could charge a reasonable (as in not very much) overnight fee and still rake it in given the numbers coming to Javea. Alas, there was no interest.
