Awesome sunset in Parc Natural l'Albufera, with the perfect relaxing boat tour, to the see the fauna and flora of this nature's wonder. Highly recommended if you visit Valencia (check before the sunset time :) )

We didn't regret at all to have choosen to see this place, even if we were some how short on time in Valencia. It is very nice in a summer day, quiet, offering incredible views on sunset especially. Good for sunbathing but also for rides with the boat and admiring birds or walks along it. Better to take a picnic... More

An enormous park with a big variety of birds living in there. There are several places where you can take a boat and see the park from the water. Boat tours are normally guided. That's gonna be complicated to find an English-speaking guide though. In the area you can also find lots of typical restaurants to have lunch.

There are many restaurants around for having a fantastic paella, without doubts very much better than Valencia city, you know, eat paella where spaniards do...Great for bird watching and taking a boat trip, for only 4 to 5 Euros. Large lake and amazing views.

Albufera is Spain's largest lake it is surprisingly not that well known by the average tourist. Enchanting all year long, you can just sit by the "lakes" of rice and watch the birds, do sunbathing, etc

I would love to do it again next summer. El palmar seems like a really lovely place. We stayed for the entire day and had paella in one of the many resturants/bars. Amazing views at the sunset.

There is the most beautiful sunsets here. We had a bit of a tough time finding a location to view it, but look for the docks along the lake on the east side of the road for parking and gorgeous photos. You'll want to eat ahead of time as there are limited restaurants in the area

This whole area is magnificent, the environment is quite unique, unexpected flora and a lake that offers such beauty. We got the 25 bus from the city (a well advertised route) and got off at "Embarcadero", and views are really wonderfull

Since the reviews were fantastic on tripadvisor, we went there with my friends during a daytrip. It was easy to go there by bus but the abufera was not something extraordinary. It was a little little town with too many restaurants and some dirty canals in which we took a boat trip for 4 euro. The boat trip was nice... More

South of the City and close to the coast is the Albufera Park, a series of fields linked and traversed by waterways which can be boated. Many birds to spy before finding a local restaurant in El Saler for an original Paella.
