While Valencia has urban beaches, its well-known beaches are found 6 to 15 miles (10 to 24 kilometres) south of the city centre.
If you decide to visit this area, we recommend you head to the popular La Devesa or El Saler, which are both wonderful examples of the natural beaches the region has to offer. These beaches can be reached by taxi or private transport.
TIP! Why not book our excursion to the area? We offer tours to La Albufera, Palmar and El Saler, visiting the main attractions, including a wonderful local meal. A great way to make the most of your day without worrying about a thing!
Pinedo beach is 1 mile (1.6 kilometre) long with an average width of 100 feet (32 meters). Located south of Valencia's Port and Yacht Club, Pinedo has plenty of restaurants and entertainment venues.
TIP! Pinedo is accessible by bike! Follow the bike lane from the City of Arts and Science.
El Saler Beach
