Levante / Malvarrosa Beach:
Very high-quality beach to the north of the port of Valencia, with excellent facilities and water sports equipment hire available. Wide and open – with fine and golden sand – it has a bustling feel, both at the beach itself (because of the quality and quantity of services offered) as well as along the promenade due to many restaurants and cafés. It has an adapted area for people with reduced mobility.
Pineda Beach Pineda Beach:
Beach to the south of Valencia with access for the disabled and basic services for public use. This beach is located in the south of the port and the yacht port shelters it from northern winds. It is an open beach of fine sand. It has a dune and vegetation area giving way to a fringe of the popular “Valencian huerta”.
Saler Beach Saler Beach:
Over six kilometres of sandy beach near Valencia’s La Albufera Natural Park. Almost five kilometres of open beach with fine golden sand are a real luxury and make it one of the most crowded beaches in the area. It is sheltered from western winds by a dune chain of high ecological value and a wide extension of pinewoods give its environment a wild and natural aspect. In summer, the Garbí wind blowing in the evening makes this beach one of the best for keen windsurfers.
Devesa Beach Devesa Beach:
Although isolated, this beach has a range of services available and is set right in the heart of Valencia’s La Albufera Natural Park. The beach, almost five kilometres long, is made up of fine and golden sand. Its main attraction is its extraordinary natural environment, which shelters several species of birds. As it is located on the border of La Albufera Nature Reserve, it has a rich ecosystem where, next to lagoons and ‘malladas’ (interdune depressions) all kind of vegetation intermingle, such as pines, palm hearts, kermes oaks, mastic and honeysuckle.
Perellonet / El Recatí Beach Perellonet / El Recatí Beach:
Very long sandy beach in the residential area where a lot of accesses to the beach are private. Located in the south of La Albufera channel, it is a quiet beach of fine sand delimited by a small residential area behind an enormous extension of rice fields.
Fine and golden sandy beach with urban feel having all kind of services, as well as sport and amusement areas for children. Pleasant temperatures in Valencia make this beach bustle almost all year round. Furthermore, it is one of the most frequented night life places from the month of April to the month of October.
In the late nineteenth and early 20th century Playa de las Arenas was famous for the beautiful Resort of Las Arenas which is no longer there.
Although the official name of the beach is Playa de Levante (also known as Playa de Cabanyal because of the nearby district of Cabanyal), Valencia beach is still locally known as Playa de las Arenas.
The promenade (Paseo Marítimo) runs alongside Las Arenas beach and is lined with sought after restaurants and bars, some with hotels above.
The restaurants are very well established and offer mouth watering dishes which many have enjoyed including Hemmingway and Orson Wells.
