Whether it is watching the sunset, or watching the fireworks during one of the many Valencia events, you can never go wrong with lounging on the beach. Although there are many beautiful Valencia beaches, we recommend visiting Malvarrosa beach.
The beach spans a length of 1 kilometers and an average width of 135 meters. Popular for tourists throughout the year, this expansive beach is not short of life with many people flocking there at all times of the day and is a reliable choice for parties and festivities, especially during the summer months.
However, in our opinion, this beach’s best asset is its sunsets. Watch the sky come alive with color as the sunbathers disperse and the sun turns to moon. There is something about the combination of the calm lapping of the waves, the soft sand, and the sunset hues which is truly breathtaking.
Best Sunset View: Stop for a coffee or a drink at Las Arenas hotel and enjoy uninterrupted views of the sunset setting on the beach.
Valencia has one of the most attractive marinas in the world. Beautiful boats reflecting the orange colors from the sunset can add an even more luxurious element to the experience.

The harborside is a hub of activity in the early evenings and guarantees you an unforgettable sunset view reflecting over the tranquil waters.

If you are looking to enjoy a truly authentic experience, the Turia Gardens is the ideal way to marvel at the stunning Valencian sunset —without getting sand in your shoes or climbing any stairs. Believe it or not, this park was once a river that ran through Valencia, but was turned into a park in the 20th Century to prevent flooding.
