Beaches

Valencia offers endless kilometres of beautiful sandy beaches, the liveliest beaches are probably Las Arenas and Malvarrosa which are both connected by a boardwalk which is full of cafes and restaurants. There are also plenty of amenities here so if you are here for the day, there is everything you need. If you are looking for somewhere a little quieter, hop on the bus and visit Saler Beach, Devesa Beach or El Recati Beach, all still lovely beaches but just a little quieter and more secluded.

Many people come to Valencia to see the many historical buildings such as the cathedral, musuems, Serranos Tower and Iglesia de San Juan del Hospital, the oldest church in Valencia, dating back to 1261 but there is so much more on offer.

There are many festivals held throughout the year with people from all over the world coming to see them. One of the most famous and even loudest festival is held in Valencia and is called Las Fallas. Caricatures are constructed out of various materials and then set on fire to create an amazing sight.

Europe's biggest aquarium, L'Oceanografic is situated in Valencia. You can see sharks, penguins, belugas, tropical fish and a whole host of other sea creature. There is also a great dolphin show, two large underwater tunnels and an underwater restaurant.

Out and About

Valencia is said to be the birthplace of paella and with such a great range of bars and restaurants you will be sure to sample some of this national dish at some point during your stay. Although paella is a popular dish, there are more than 200 other rice dishes that are available as an alternative to the original paella. Something else which Valencia is well known for is chufas, a frozen drink which is made of tiger nuts and it can be very refreshing on a hot day.

There are also many nightclubs so if you fancy partying until dawn, you can. Friday and Saturday nights can get very busy but great for anyone who loves a lively atmosphere.

Valencia is full of beautiful parks, shaded gardens and seaside boardwalks which can be enjoyed all year round. There are so many areas that are just perfect for a gentle stroll, jogging and even rollerblading, so whatever you like doing, I'm sure you will be able to do it in Valencia.
