Getting there & away
Maxitaxis from Constanţa stop at Mangalia’s train station and also in front of the post office, where all maxitaxis running up the coast to Olimp (every 20 minutes) and down the coast to Vama Veche stop. Maxitaxis to Constanţa run regularly from 5am to 11pm, to Doi Mai every 15 minutes from 6am to 10pm, and to Vama Veche every hour from 6am to 7pm.
