A really must-see place around Valencia city, where you can enjoy with take-breathing views from this particular natural park. In El Palmar village you can eat a fantastic rice and later enjoy with a amazing route in boat.

I rented a bike and it took me 1.5 hours to get there. It was an easy ride but had to ride with cars sometimes... Views were nice though!

You can go for a boat trip inside the delta, but after I saw the Danube Delta in Romania, Albufera is a small kid in comparison. Notice that the boatman was very nice and helpful all the time.

Breath-taking nature with beautiful wild birds and smooth wind. Take a easy hike around the town and appreciate the massive rice fields, then enjoy a real local rice dish in the many many restaurants.

Easy going, beautiful area of wetlands close to Valencia city. Lots of places to eat. The boat trip is great value at 4 euros per person. We visited on a sunny day in November..Not many people but the boatman told us it is busier at weekends. Wonderful sunset.

Lots of bicycle trails in this park. A welcome center hands out maps. There is an observation tower that gives a good overlook.
