1. Enjoy spring in Valencia with the sunset at El Saler
First on this list is the town of El Saler is one of the most visited towns around Valencia
because of the number of people passing to the Albufera in search of a boat
trip. There’s a big production of salt here, but what’s most impressive is its
beach: a long extension of white sand, dunes, clean water, and a gentle
breeze. Perfect for a long walk on a sunny day. We definitely recommend visiting,
the view is worth the trip there, the ocean breeze truly is a blessing in disguise
during the spring in Valencia.
2. Albufera National Park
Next up, only 10 kilometers from Valencia you will find the Albufera Natural Park, a
A Mediterranean ecosystem with unspoiled dune beaches, forests, rice fields, and
a huge lake where you can enjoy boat trips. This is where paella was invented
and where you can try other culinary delights made with local products, such
as all-i-pebre (garlic and paprika-based dish) and marinated mullet. You may find
multiple restaurants and cafes where many different paella’s and other dishes are
served. The park is home to the largest lake in Spain and one of the most important
wetland areas in the Iberian Peninsula.
3. Go crazy at Festival De Les Arts June 9-10
Lastly, the festival De Les Arts returns for its fourth edition to the City of Arts and
Sciences of Valencia. It’s a very successful festival with national and
international artists combined, with a wide range of food trucks at the Foodies
Market, and more activities. Perfect for an amazing spring in Valencia.
As they define themselves, the festival is born out “of the connection
between music and artistic disciplines like design, illustration, fashion or
gastronomy”. It’s a true spectacle to witness, and if you happen to be in
Valencia at the time, be sure to attend it! Because who doesn’t enjoy a party
with good music, fun company, and pretty fireworks?
