White sand, dunes, clean water, gentle breeze… El Saler beach is top quality and is located at the southern end of the city, to the south of the Pinedo beach, and to the north of the Devesa beach, only 15 minutes by car or half an hour by bus from the center of Valencia. The main characteristic of this beach is its natural environment, its fine sand, and its great extension. There is nothing like approaching the beach very early to see a good sunrise. The beaches of el saler are not as crowded as those of la malvarrosa and are within one of the best natural parks in Spain, Albufera Natural Park.
Malvarrosa is Valencia’s urban beach and is usually the busiest during the summer due to its proximity to the city and due to the quality and quantity of services it offers. If you want to walk, you have the fantastic promenade that connects the beaches of Cabanyal and Malvarrosa. If you want to go beyond the walks you have access to all the nautical sports and physical activities related to the sea that you can think of in the Marina de València.
La Patacona is the best option for those who want to go to the beach without leaving Valencia, but who prefer a less touristy environment and further away from the hustle and bustle of bars, restaurants, pubs and the leisure areas of the Paseo Marítimo. It belongs to the municipality of Alboraya but is easily reached by public transport or even on foot, as it is found just after the Malvarrosa Beach.
A kilometer-long beach, also called ‘little Venice’ because of its navigable canals is another beach very close to Valencia, well known for its gastronomic offer and for its port surrounded by buildings. You can find here all kinds of services as showers, lifeguards, bathrooms, access for people with reduced mobility and parking lots. Port Saplaya is connected to Alboraya and Patacona beach by a bus that runs daily.
