Valencia Airport Information

 Location of Valencia Airport

Since the Valencia Airport finished renovations at the end of 2007, it has been linked nicely too many transportation options so its physical location outside of Valencia in Manises is not quite the problem that it was before.

Located directly to the west of the city proper about eight kilometers along the Orange Blossom Coast, it is easily accessible off of the National Road N-220 connected by both the N-335 and A-3 local routes. From the airport you can easily get to Valencia as well as inland Spain or the Mediterranean resorts.

How to Save Money Booking a Holiday to Javea

Javea is a great place to select for a holiday. It has a vibrant, welcoming culture and plenty of great beaches to enjoy during the long, warm months. The town is also bustling with activities and there are plenty of places to eat and bars to keep you busy for weeks. Unfortunately this also makes it a very desirable destination for people from all over Europe and the rest of the world. As such, it does not offer the ‘cheap and cheerful’ accommodation found in other resort towns on the coast. Because of this, it is pretty important to take care and try to keep costs at a reasonable level.
