I went here on a nice Saturday with a few friends. We took the boat ride around part of the lake. It was nothing much special actually, more than it's nice being on the water (around half an hour ride) and we saw a few fish that jumped right beside us - that was pretty cool. We didn't do anything... More

If you are interested in birdlife take an hour boat ride and or visit one of the strictly controled reserves on land. If lucky you might see some of the local fishing boats in action. A good place to combine with a meal of Valencian gastronomic dishes on the Island of Palmera.

The restaurant was spectacular, the cooked two different types of paella in front of us (the classic paella valenciana which had... More

We went on this boat ride to see this "quiet fishing community" it reminded me a little of the Florida Everglades. We saw an area where eels were being farmed. People come to this park for bird watching as well.

The lake is not bad. If you go there for the sunset boat ride, be carefull not to miss the last bus to Valencia - just check on the station or ask the driver for the last bus, and of course, inform the driver of the boat

I entered via El Saler (bus 25 from Valencia city centre takes you there) where a pathway to the beach features a kiosk to ask questions, get maps, etc. It's open until early afternoon, 2pm-2:30pm. On the beach itself are restaurants though I'm not sure of their opening hours. I did the yellow sign-posted walk through the interior which took... More

Spent the afternoon exploring this nature park which has fishing, lagoons, bushwalking & is close to the coast. Good for bird watching & getting back to nature. The optional lagoon cruise was relaxing & most enjoyable. The town on the island is small, with an interesting museum & many restaurants that serve paella, the regional specialty.

Beautiful place but difficult to organise a visit day if you don't have a bike or something. Because each place( el palmar, el saler, el peronel, ... Is far from each other.
