Additional Location Information
Miramar is in the La Safor area of the Valencia Community, with green and lush valleys filled with extensive orange groves which scent the fertile landscape. The dramatic and impressive La Safor mountain range rises behind Gandia, the historic capital of La Safor. Gandia is a bustling Mediterranean town offering great shopping and countless bars and restaurants, offering an international range of inexpensive menus and local wines or gourmet fine-dining and sommelier selection. Gandia has a thriving music and cultural scene, with a number of Cinemas, Theatres, Clubs and Discos for the young-at-heart and has one of the best beaches in the area which for many years been the favourite holiday destination for Spanish people. The beautiful Blue Flag beaches with their golden sands stretch along the shoreline for some ten miles and have an impressive range of medical stations, lifeguards and, in the summer, beach cafés.
Playa Miramar is a small friendly and quiet resort with a wide, very long, sandy blue flag beach offering safe shallow waters for swimming. The long promenade lined with palm trees is popular with locals for their evening stroll and within the beach area there are many small shops, local bakers, numerous bars & good restaurants.
Valencia's international airport (only 45 minutes from Gandia) has cheap flights making La Safor an inexpensive and easy region to access. While desirable, a car is not essential since easy public transport takes you directly from Valencia airport to Gandia, with Miramar a short taxi trip further. Alicante airport is only an hour or so away by car. Transfers from either airport can be arranged upon request.
The La Safor region is unspoilt and more beautiful than any other Spanish coastal region, where tiny pueblos nestle in amongst the citrus groves and have remained largely unchanged for generations. Forming part of the Costa Azahar (Orange Blossom Coast) the delightful name speaks for itself. The province of Valencia benefits from 320 days of sunshine each year with average daytime temperatures ranging from 15-32 degrees Celsius. This area has a gentle climate, allowing those staying in La Safor to enjoy an al fresco lifestyle during a large part of the year.
The region has a long tradition of fiestas undiminished by time. The Fallas in March provide a spectacular example of the exuberance of Spanish celebration, and the Moors and Christian festivals celebrate the history of the region. A strong community spirit exists within a tolerant, good humoured and kindly local population who are welcoming to visitors. Children still play freely and safely in the roads and squares. The traditional siesta is a firm institution with shops and offices closing between 2pm to 4pm throughout the year. A Spanish Sunday remains a traditional day of tranquillity.
Valencia city is famous for its sporting, cultural and commercial achievements. A wonderful, historic city with fabulous shopping and breathtaking architecture which includes the astonishing City of Arts and Sciences, it has sufficient cultural attractions to satisfy even the most demanding. With an inexpensive direct half-hourly train service from Gandia or only one hour drive from Miramar it is easily accessed. The new direct, high-speed rail link means a journey from Gandia to Madrid takes only three and a half hours in relaxed comfort.
Within an hour's drive are Guadalest, Port America's Cup, The Valencia Grand Prix, Cheste Motor Cycle Championship Racing, The Benidorm Palace, Terra Mitica, Aqualandia, The Albufera Wetlands, Valencia Bioparc Zoo, Museums and Galleries, and Lladro Factory. Closer-by visitors can enjoy Fishing, Oliva Nova Golf, Go-Karting, Jet-Ski and Boat Hire, Naturist Beaches, Mountain Rambling and Walking, Cycling, Historic Buildings, Palaces, Monasteries, Churches and Castle ruins to explore. Denia and Calpe are only half an hour drive south and a number of ceramics, leather-goods outlets and shopping centres provide ample opportunities to support the local economy!
