We stayed in Les Gavines near El Palmar for a week in May this year. The area is beautiful but we found both that at this time of year that the many of the restaurants and shops in all the villages and towns are completely closed, and in any event even in high season many do not open during the...

We ended our daytrip to Albufera here. I guess, you must come prepared if you want to chose a good place to eat - there are so many of them! We've got the mpression, howeverm that tourists are not always super-welcome here... It is obvious that many places cater for big (bussed?) groups, so we had a problem finding a... More

The town (or is it a big village?) of El Palmar is the starting point for visits to the excellent wildlife reserve of Albufera; and it’s well worth staying around and enjoying it in its own right. A haven of peace and quiet after the bustle of Valencia, its canals and the proximity of sea and lagoon give in the... More

I'm not sure if we went on the best possible day ever or what, but there were NO tourists in town, and it was early July. Beautiful quaint little town, happy helpful non-English speaking shop owners, and tons of little restaurants. We went all the way to the end of town, a small restaurant Tonica something.... But, 12€ each for... More

Great Paella and people - My wife and I went to the small village where Paella originated from and had some fantastic food. Food took about an hour to prepare - which was enough time to relax and enjoy the people.

Pretty, often crowded with coach trips of seniors on arranged luncheons. Narrow canals and boats. Herons everywhere.

I always come here when i go to Valencia. A small town, only to be reached through one way, with lots of nice restaurants and small streets to stroll around in. Near the water different boats are headed to the Albufeira lake which takes about 45 min. but a splendid trip it is. Lots of waterlife and birds around you.... More
