Whether it is watching the sunset, or watching the fireworks for one of many Valencia events, you can never go wrong with lounging on the beach. Although Valencia offers many beautiful beaches along its coast, we recommend visiting Malvarrosa beach. It is located in the north of the municipal district, between the town of Alboraya and Calle Acequia de la Cadena. 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, for us, 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.
Valencia has one of the most attractive marinas in the world. Beautiful boats reflecting the orange colors the sunset has to offer can add an even more luxurious element to the experience. The Marina is located a twenty minute metro or bus ride from the center of the city. If you would like to watch the sunset whilst indulging in style, Valencia’s Marina Beach Club is definitely a great option. Nestled in the marina at Carrer Marina Real Juan Carlos I, s/n, 46011 Valencia, this bar is perfect for enjoying an evening cocktail overlooking the sea. Or, if you’re more of a party animal, this club is celebrated in this area for its cool DJs and all-night parties. In the summer months, party through the afternoon at Marina Beach’s Tardeo.
Based in the heart of Valencia’s old town is El Miguelete Cathedral which has a bell tower and spiral staircase open for city views. With its iconic Gothic architectural style dating back to the fourteenth century, this building is steeped in history and features as part of a collection of incredibly beautiful architectural masterpieces. Climb to the top of the tower (after a series of 207 steps!) and see Valencia’s old town from a new angle, noting the many different periods of history and architecture across the sprawling city—see how many of the Valencia sights you can spot from the top! The name ‘El Miguelete’ is derived from the name of the tower’s biggest bell, named ‘Miguel’, constructed back in 1532 and weighing in at over ten tonnes! This fascinating bell tower is located at Plaça de la Reina, s/n, 46001 València.
If you are looking to enjoy a truly authentic experience, the Turia Gardens is the ideal way to marvel at the stunning Valencia 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. Easy to access, it is a perfect option for elderly grandparents or younger children, allowing you to enjoy the Valencia sunset as a family. As for the location, it runs the span of the city so you can go for a short walk towards the center of the city and stumble upon the gardens with ease. If you are looking to view the vast expense of the gardens from a new angle, the view from Sea Saffron’s terrace allows you to see the entire length of the Turia gardens, as well as the surrounding Valencian region! The views are like no other, and are accompanied by a unique gastronomical experience with local ingredients and the best of the region’s wines.
Looking for a taste of nostalgia from childhood summers or to experience a sunset on the water without the overpowering sound of crashing waves? If so, L’Albufera Lake exquisitely tailors to such needs. Located at Mata de l’Antina, Valencia, it is a freshwater lagoon and estuary on the Gulf of Valencia coast of the Valencian Community and offers the height of tranquility to enjoy a beautiful Valencia sunset. Hometown of the famous Valencian paella, the Albufera region is full of rice paddies where the special paella rice is grown. The surrounding areas also feature beautiful wildlife, nature trails, and cycling routes, which seamlessly blends an active day getting in touch with nature with a restful evening watching the sun set on the lake. This is a perfect spot for your Valencia photos, especially as the last rays of the sun beat against the water, creating picture-perfect reflections. This nature-lover’s haven is a short journey from the city and definitely worth the trip.
