“Top ten beaches in Spain”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

The Costa Blanca is made up by a number of small towns with pleasant beaches. Some towns are bigger than others and some are package holiday monstrosities (heard of Benidorm right?!)

Gandia is one of the beaches that is more popular with the Spanish than foreign tourists, so it must have something going for it. The beach is excellent - cleaned daily, managed by life guards, has great facilities and warm sea water.

I have family close to Gandia and feel privileged to have Gandia beach on the doorstep.

“Fantastic fine sand beach with many facilities”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

The Spanish have a knack of making their beaches so attractive. The first thing they do is build a beautiful promenade, usually with flower beds, palm trees, loads of benches and shelters for a little protection from the sun. Playa Gandia has gone one better and actually built an underground car park partially underneath the beach. The main beach has walkways, wheelchair facilities, showers, drink kiosks, sunbed hire and first aid. There are lifeguards at regular intervals who incessantly patrol the waters edge. The sands are cleaned every night and are always spotless. Behind the promenade are hundreds of restaurants and bars, there has to be because July and August the area is taken over by Los Madrilenes in their thousands. Strolling along the prom will bring you to the marina and thence the port. This is the area for fish restaurants. If you are going to stay here try the Bayren hotel, really good value. If you are not constrained by kids holidays, come after September 5th. It's like someone's turns off the tourist tap, the weather is glorious and you will have the place to yourself. If you like this beach, try Valencia beach. You will certainly be impressed. I always find it difficult to understand why the English seaside resorts cannot replicate the facilities that are the norm in Spain. Try finding a shower on an English beach. Enjoy.
