A few minutes by car or bus, and close to the coast is the Albufera Natural Park, a series of rice fields traversed by waterways. Went at evening and looking at the right side of the road, we taken the most wonderful photos of a sunset. Perfect to take a break and enjoy of a pretty skyline.

The tour was nice. The bus ride told of the history, and the boat ride was very peaceful. Unfortunately the boat driver only spoke Spanish, and our Spanish was limited, so didn't understand much of what he described.

We visited Albufera park in september 2016. Soon after our arrival, we were persuaded to take the boat trip. The trip was really nice, the nature is astonishing, but the tour was only in Spanish, so we did not understand a lot.

The Albufera is on the way to our best loved beach and we have stopped there on several occasions. The lake is not about 10 times smaller than in the Arab times, due to large portions of land being used to grow rice. It is nice, but at least in June there are not many types of birds, as advertised.

Unless you are a bird spotter I suppose... The park is spread over a large area and there are a lot of green flat rice fields, which differentiate it from the surrounding area. There was an information centre with a tower, but on the day we were there the car park closed at 2pm. Maybe if we had taken a... More

Not so much our licking. We had the idea that we could go on the rice fields by boat, but that was not the case. We went on a huge lake and that was nice, but not spectacular. It was hot so we were greatfull for the roof over our heads in the boat. The guide was very enthousiastic, but... More

We came here as part of a group on a hot day. We had a look at the presentation of the formation of the wetlands - nicely done in different languages with colour photos.there were a few walking trails to a hide where we viewed a number of ducks and there were flamingoes in the distance.

As we were part of a guided tour , this boat ride was part of the itinery. It was nice, it was relaxing. But, not really that interesting. It filled in a blank for the tour company.

Thank Iwise
