Playa de Gandia refers to the spectacular beach part of the city of Gandia. Whilst the city itself is the second largest city in the province of Valencia and features a lot of traditional architecture and sights, the beach area is much more tourism-focused and is the centre of all things sun, excitement and parties. Despite this, Playa de Gandia is still a very well-rounded resort that appeals to families and couples as well as young singles.
Low-cost holidays to Playa de Gandia are very readily available and the resort can be reached from most regional airports. The resort itself is located around a 50-minute drive away from Valencia airport and just a couple of kilometres from the main city of Gandia. Make sure you check the Cheekytrip comparison site for more stunning destinations to this part of the world. Direct flights to Valencia tend to be around 3 hours long and with a relatively short transfer on the other side, you can get your relaxing holiday underway in no time.
Playa de Gandia is at its busiest and best from spring until autumn. Temperatures reach the high 20s and sometimes into the low 30s throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring but the resort definitely doesn’t see the same level of activity and excitement during the cooler months. This is also a beach resort so we definitely recommend a summer trip when the sun, sea and sand are at their sizzling best.
The beach resort of Gandia is starting to really make a name for itself in recent years. Previously, it was only really visited by in-the-know Spaniards but now, the secret is starting to get out about just how wonderful this place is. Playa de Gandia offers around 5.8km of beautiful blue-flag beaches as well as a number of nightclubs and bars that line the coast. The soft sands are perfect for lounging on and the crystal-clear waters are ideal for swimming in. If you do ever desire a change of scenery, the city of Gandia - with all of the Spanish charm that you would expect - is definitely worth a day-trip or two.
Playa de Gandia is quite a built-up tourist resort and so you can expect a wide range of accommodation options to choose from when you visit this place. Most hotels and apartments are located right by the beach providing easy access. However, there are luxury villas slightly further away from the beach as well as great choices in the city itself. The same is very much true for eating out in the region. You will find some lovely beach cafes and restaurants on the coast as well as more fantastic choices in the city of Gandia.
