Gandía Beach

Gandía beach is one of the favourite beaches for Spaniards, but do you know why? What does Gandía beach have that other beaches don’t? What services does it offer? Gandía has more than 7 km of beach divided into several parts. The main beach is the north beach (Platja nord), where most of the beach flats and hotels are located. The beach is more than 3 kilometres long with fine, clean sand. The location could not be better. During the summer months sun and good weather are almost guaranteed.

Here 👇, you will find information about all the beaches in Gandía. There is a naturalistic beach, an artificial beach, a tourist beach and much more. The beach is very popular with families and groups of friends especially during the summer (both residents and tourists).

👉 Nord Beach

The north beach of Gandía is one of the best known and most visited beaches in Gandía, a long, beautiful beach of fine sand, with a long promenade, which has all the services imaginable. At its southern end is located the Nautical Club and fishing port of the city; there is no lack of maritime transport activity either.

Characteristics of Gandía Nord beach

As we said before, the fine white sandy beach is very well maintained. It is a destination with recognised quality and environmental seals. It is worth noting that there are not many beaches that meet all these standards and receive so many awards and quality certificates that make it the main beach of La Safor. It is, on the other hand, the wide range of services that make this a very attractive beach.

Beach offer and services:

  • Sand sports (goals, basketball courts, volleyball nets, playgrounds).
  • Workshops.
  • Beach bars with public toilets.
  • Water sports.
  • Roller skate hire.
  • Sunshades and sun loungers for hire.
  • Showers and footbaths.
  • Free WIFI.
  • Car park.
  • Lifeguard

It also has a fantastic promenade that stretches from the Yacht Club to the end of the beach. In the evening you can stroll along the promenade enjoying the sea breeze, music, shops, restaurants, beach bars, etc. The promenade is made up of a section for pedestrians, another section with a cycle lane (cyclists and runners) and a landscaped area. Underneath the promenade you will find an underground car park open during the high season.

👉 Ahuir Beach

Ahuir beach is considered a strange beach as it does not follow the canons of a conventional beach on the Valencian coastline as it is not very urbanised and has large areas of dunes in the process of regeneration. On this somewhat secluded beach you will find fans of kitesurfing. The beach is suitable for nudists as it is an isolated and quiet beach. In order to preserve the dunes, wooden walkways have been built to give the beach a very natural look.

This beach has a series of characteristics that can make you decide to come to this beach:

  • Sandy beach.
  • Red cross.
  • Footbaths and showers.
  • Car park.
  • Lifeguard.
  • Nudist.

👉 Can Beach

📣 Update 01 January:
The Mayor of Gandía has announced that the Gandía dog beach will not be available this summer 2022. Apparently, as it was located in a protected area, it was not viable for dogs. See below for other alternatives to Gandía’s dog beach.

Playa Can is currently one of the benchmarks in terms of dog beaches, where people and dogs coexist without major problems. Users can ask for poles to tie up their pets, and there is a dispenser of biodegradable bags for organic waste. The beach is only open during the summer months. Playa Can has lifeguards who will show you the rules of this beach.
