Gandía – Spain lies approximately 40 minutes south of Valencia City by car (50 Minutes by reliable Gandia Train Service), 40 minute north of Benidorm and 90 minutes north of Alicante and is a favourite holiday destination for Spanish holidaymakers, often coming from the centre of the country to this area for a coastal break. Because of its position at the very north of the Costa Blanca, and at the very south of the Costa del Azahar, the town has not become a major tourist destination for foreign tourists but has kept its essentially Spanish spirit and identity. Gandia is also the centre of the La Safor region and surrounded by the la Safor mountains.
As its name suggests, Playa de Gandía is the summer, coastal resort area of Gandía (Spain) and lies a short distance from the main, inland town. With a large number of hotels and self-catering apartments offering accommodation from modest to luxury, as well as the range of night time entertainment already mentioned, Playa de Gandía is also the proud possessor of one of the finest beaches to be found anywhere in the Mediterranean. Awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award, the beach is backed by a beautiful promenade some seven kilometres long with shops, bars and restaurants which together provide the tourist with everything they could need for a complete seaside holiday.
A night life scene that equals the best anywhere in Spain
Whatever the reason for selecting a holiday destination, a visit to Playa de Gandía has plenty to offer everyone. Fabulous beaches, breathtaking mountain scenery, historically interesting buildings and architecture, dazzling nightlife & fiestas and sophisticated shopping are all to be found either in Gandía town itself, or within a very minutes’ drive away.
It really is not hard to understand why Playa de Gandía comes so high up the list when Spanish holidaymakers themselves are deciding upon their own favourite holiday destination in Spain.
