Beaches in the City of Valencia
A modern, bustling port divides the sea front of Valencia into two main sections. To the north lies an attractive promenade along the most urban and popular beaches: Malvarrosa, Cabañal and Las Arenas. The beach itself has full facilities in addition to the wide range of bars, restaurants and leisure activities which transform the area into a hive of activity 24 hours a day in the hottest months. To the south lies Pinedo, a quiet beach leading onto the beautiful, fine sand beaches of El Saler and Devesa, sheltered from westerly winds by a strip of sand dunes and pine trees.
They also have the great advantage of being situated in the Albufera Nature Reserve, one of the finest natural settings along this coastline. Besides swimming and sunbathing, the beaches in Valencia are the scene of a great variety of activities. Its 15 km of beach are ideal for windsurfing, sailing and dinghy sailing in the yacht club. The El Saler golf course on the very edge of the sea is one of the best in Europe, and just a few metres away lies a leisure complex for riding, playing tennis and pelota, or taking a traditional boat ride around the Albufera lake itself.
