Albufera is home to Spain's largest lake, an important wetland area with rare wading bird species, & rich wildlife varieties. A place of fishermen and rice growers, & source for many traditional local dishes such as Paella, and Arroz a Banda; also All i Pebre with eels from the lake. Sample the food at small town restaurants; boat trips onto the lake may be arranged too.
El Saler has rolling sand dunes alongside Pine woodlands that separate Albufera from the Mediterranean Sea. Clear waters & beautiful beaches (including some clothing-optional areas at Pinedo Beach), plus a premier golf course that ranks among the world's top 50. All within easy reach of downtown Valencia, by car or 20-25 minutes by "yellow bus" from terminal at C/ Alicante between North Station and the Bullring. Stops at the beach in summer months - otherwise a short walk from El Saler center.
