Beach in Valencia's Beaches

The northern stretch of Valencia's main beach has a quieter, more local scene, but still gets busy in summer. It's backed by lovely traditional houses that have been converted into eateries, and there are also several appealing chiringuito (beach-bar) options on the sand. Like the rest of the strip, it's a wide, flat stretch of beach with plenty of room to move even in peak season.
