best beach resort in Valencia

Was thinking of staying in Valencia for 1 week,but would it be better to stay near the beach? Don't know which area is best. I liked the look of Gandia.

Thanks VTB

Hi,

Gandia has one of the best sandy beaches in the Valencia Region and a lot of nightlife (bars and restaurants). Gandia is a good choice.

Hi

I know this coastline well as I have a flat in Javea (100 km from VLC). The city of Valencia's beach is wide and long but more of an 'industrial' beach - ok for locals for after work and at weekends - but not really for a family holiday.

Oliva has the best unspoilt beaches but the town itself is not that nice. Gandia has a massive and impressive beach but in summer it is full of people from Madrid so is noisy and impossible to park. Denia is a good choice - lots of beaches, plenty of bars and restaurants - and more upmarket. Javea is really nice - again quite upmarket but small and pretty low key.

Any other info you require please dont hesitate to ask.

In response to the question re travelling from Valencia to Denia.

National bus services www.alsa.es for routes to and from Valencia. www.renfe.es for the trains and www.cercanias.es for local trains along the coast.

Hope this helps
