Cheap flights to Valencia (Region)

The Valencian Community or simply Valencia is an autonomous community of Spain with nationality status. Its location is on the South-Eastern coast, which is well-known for its 518km of Mediterranean coastline with sand beaches and a pulsating nightlife. The Valencian Community is divided into three provinces: Castellón, which has beaches and mountains; Valencia, where the region’s capital of the same name is located, and also the Albufera natural park; and Alicante, which is popular for its resorts, nightlife, and leisure opportunities on the coast.

Both Spanish and Valencian are recognised by the Statute of Autonomy as co-official languages. Although Valencian is not fully widespread in the whole region, it’s not uncommon to interact and talk with people who prefer to speak it rather than Spanish. English is more commonly spoken by staff at major hotels and the main tourist attractions, but otherwise, it is not widely spoken.

What to see & do

Valencian Community’s capital is Valencia, the third biggest city of Spain. It is widely known for the architectural complex The City of Arts and Sciences, Fallas festival, and as the birthplace of paella. Another notable place in the region of Valencia is the famous tourist city of Alicante, which is the main entrance to Costa Blanca. In Alicante you will see the magnificent Castle of Santa Barbara, which you can clearly see from the Postiguet beach; the fishing-town-turned-seaside-resort-city of Benidorm, which holds one of the biggest concentrations of skycrawlers in the world; the famous Elche, best known for its Palm Grove which was declared by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site; and Javea’s beautiful historical centre and beaches. Castellón is the base for exploring the Costa del Azahar. The coastal town of Peñiscola is located here, which has a stunning castle on the shore.

How to get around Valencia

If there’s no private car available, you can always take the train or bus, which makes frequent trips within and outside the region. Also, take note that the north coast of the Alicante province is connected through a tram network.

How to get there

There are two international airports that serve the province of Valencia, Alicante Airport (the more active of the two) and Valencia Airport. The former operates flights to almost everywhere in Europe and a few from outside the continent, with a number of low-cost and flag-carrier airlines operating here. It’s considered as the natural gateway to Costa Blanca. Meanwhile, Valencia Airport’s number of passengers has increased in the last year, establishing the city as a tourist spot. There’s also San Javier Airport in the Region of Murcia. From here, it’s just a short trip to Costa Blanca. You can also get in by train, via high-speed train AVE, which links Valencia with Madrid, calling at Cuenca. There’s also an Intercity train that departs from Valencia that goes through Sagunto to Aragon, with a stop in Teruel and terminates at Zaragoza. Euromed and Talgo trains go from Alicante north to Catalonia, while RENFE operates the national trains. The province is also accessible by bus, most of which is operated by private company ALSA, the only carrier for medium- and long-distance trips. In addition, ALSA also works with Eurolines, so it’s also possible to get in if you’re coming from Europe and Morocco. You can drive to the region via the Autopista AP-7, which runs along the Mediterranean coast of Spain, passing all the way through the Valencian Community. If you’re coming from the Balearic Islands, the Valencian Community is easily reached via ferries operating from Ibiza, Mallorca, Formentera, and Menorca to Valencia and Denia (Alicante), as well as from Oran and Algiers in Algeria.
