Trasmediterranea Launch New San Antonio to Gandia Ferry Route On  June 16th

  • Trasmediterranea have confirmed that the fast ship ‘Almudaina Dos’ will service the route, making the crossing in only 2.5 hours.

The planned daily connection between Sant Antoni and Gandia will commence on June 16th following its successful trial last Easter.

In a press statement, Trasmediterranea Commercial Director Miguel Pardo said, “the new service has been very well received by passengers, travel agencies and the wider tourism sector. Our trials last Easter exceeded expectations and we hope that the success continues.”

Pricing

We searched for a crossing departing San Antonio on the 26th of June, returning a week later on July 2nd.

Our booking was for 2 adults, 2 children, a dog, and a family saloon car, and selecting the Balearic resident discount.

The returned quotation of 277,44€ seems incredibly good value compared to other ferry services, so good in fact that we can’t imagine it will stay at that level for too long.

By comparison, booking the same dates and details on Balearia’s Ibiza to Valencia ferry came in at 399.87€, almost 50% more than the new Transmed route.

Gandia

Though the name of Gandia may not be as familiar as its neighbour Valencia, it is a sizeable city with a population of over 200,000 and thriving commercial and tourism sectors.

Known by its two main zones, Gandia city is home to its many historical monuments and business and shopping facilities, whereas Gandia beach is the centre for tourism.

One of the reasons for its less well-known name maybe that Gandia has always enjoyed a reputation for being a centre for domestic tourism, the majority of its visitors coming from Madrid, though in recent years the area has started to attract a much wider source of visitors.
