The Area
Gandia Beaches

Gandia is a city and municipality in the Valencian Community, Eastern Spain on the Mediterranean. Gandia is located on the Costa del Azahar, 40 miles south of Valencia and 68 mi north of Alicante.

It was a very important cultural and commercial centre during the 15th and 16th centuries: in the 15th it had a university. It was home to several important poets but it is perhaps best known for the Borja or Borgia, through their family title, Duke of Gandia.

Today, Gandia is one of the largest coastal towns in Spain, with a population over 200,000 during summer, and a thriving centre of commerce and tourism in the region.

There are two main zones, Gandia City, which has all the historical monuments, commercial activity, and shopping and Gandia beach where apartments and summer residences used during the summer season are to be found.

The bars and nightclubs are concentrated in the beach area. As is normal for Spain, nightlife does not begin until well after midnight. The beach and town are actually 1 mile apart which succeeds in separating summer tourism from day-to-day living.

With its long, wide, golden,sandy beaches Gandia is one of the main tourist destinations in Spain. Traditionally Gandia’s tourism has a domestic base, but in recent years it has been an increasingly popular destination for international tourists, mainly French, German and British.

There are some popular Spanish restaurants around the beach. There are also various fast-food chain restaurants like McDonald’s, Burger King and Domino’s Pizza.

Gandia has a number of shopping facilities including shopping malls and chain supermarkets like Carrefour, Carrefour Express, Lidl, Mercadona and Aldi.
