How do I get from the airport to Sunsation Beach?
There are many ways of getting to Gandía and we want to give you some useful information when you are planning your trip. Which airport is best for you and how to get from the airport to the beach.
Alicante-Elche airport (airport code ALC) is the largest airport on the east coast after Barcelona-El Prat. This means that there are loads of direct flights from all over Europe. By car you reach Gandía in about 75min.
Valencia airport (airport code VLC) is the quickest way to get to Gandía, if you find a direct flight. In about 10min on the metro you’re already downtown, at the Valencia Nord central station. By car you reach Gandía in less than an hour.
Long haul flights
For long haul flight connections Valencia mostly is the best final destination. This usually means you’ll have to stopover at a larger European airport first. Another option is flying to either Madrid or Barcelona and from there go by bus or train. Madrid usually offers the fastest connection as the high speed train to Valencia takes you less than 2hrs and from there you catch a local train to Gandía.
Our absolute recommendation! If you are 2 or more traveling together, renting a car for your whole stay can be a good idea and many times cost you less than paying for a return private transfer or taxi service. There are strong seasonal price variations, but overall prices are low outside of the summer months.
When renting a car it is very important that you check the rental terms very carefully as most rental companies try their best to add extra fees and charges. Always check how many kilometers are included and which payment options are available. Having the wrong card can cost you dearly. Please also check your credit card´s insurance policy, maybe it already includes rental car insurance. Lastly, if you return the car at an unmanned office, ALWAYS take several photos of the car after you’ve parked it. This way there is no chance that the rental company can get away with billing you for damages incurred after you returned the car.

Many of our guests and coaches have used the widely spread peer to peer service when going to and from the various airports. This can be a very affordable option if you are fine with carpooling with strangers.

Since Gandía more or less is a suburb of Valencia, public transport is very accessible. Valencia airport has its own metro station and therefore it’s super easy to get to the central station (metro stop Xátiva) and the commuter train to Gandia. There are also regular bus routes connecting the two cities. Please remember that you are going to Playa de Gandía and most trains and buses will take you to the city centre. From there you either grab a taxi or a local bus to the beach. Unfortunately Alicante and Gandía aren't as well connected so there you need to go by some sort of taxi or private transfer service, unless you simply rent a car.
