Getting there & away
Tickets for trains departing from Constanţa can be purchased in advance at the Agenţie de Voiaj CFR (617 930), which adjoins the post and telephone office on the promenade.
The simplest and quickest way to travel between Constanţa and Mamaia is by maxitaxi. Maxitaxis 23, 23E and 301 depart regularly from Constanţa’s train station and go north along Mamaia’s 8km strip, stopping at major hotels. Maxitaxi 23 stops near Constanţa’s northern bus station as well. Buses 41 and 47 also take you from Constanţa to the northern end of Mamaia.
In summer a shuttle runs up and down Mamaia’s 5km boardwalk.
Bus 23 goes north to the neighbouring resort of Năvodari and the camp ground.
Currently, non-Constanţa-registered vehicles must pay a €0.50 road tax at the entrance to Mamaia, though this may be discontinued from 2007.
