Beaches and seaside delights
With its diverse regions and many islands, Spain has been among the most popular holiday destinations in Europe for several decades. The variety of its landscapes, its magnificent beaches and sunny climate make it a sure winner all year round.
Come and discover Moorish Spain in the south of the peninsula, Andalusia with its fiery temperament or the Balearic Islands very close by, famous for their splendid landscapes and their party atmosphere. Or opt for the diversity of the Canary Islands, volcanic lands with unspoilt traditions and treat yourself to an unforgettable holiday under the sun.
With 100 km of sandy coastline and almost year-round sunshine, the Costa de Valencia is an ideal destination for a relaxing vacation. In addition to its beaches, considered the most beautiful in Europe, the region offers many other attractions. Inland, a remarkable historical heritage awaits you with villages, castles, monuments, orange groves.... Many traditional festivals characterize this dynamic Mediterranean region, such as the legendary Battle of the Tomatoes (Tomatina), which always takes place in Buñol on the last Wednesday of August. The region is also known for its varied gastronomy. Did you know, for example, that the famous paella was born in the Valencia region in the 19th century? If you are passionate about history, culture, architecture or good food, the Costa de Valencia is guaranteed to be just right for you!
Founded in 1998, the City of Arts and Sciences is a must when visiting Valencia. Among the impressive futuristic buildings that make up the city, you can visit the Oceanogràfic, the largest aquarium in Europe, with some 500 species of fish, reptiles and aquatic birds, or the Hemisfèric, a 3D cinema with a gigantic 900-meter curved screen!
Another activity not to be missed during your stay in Valencia is a visit to the Lonja de la Seda (Silk Hall). This impressive 15th century building has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Every detail of this richly decorated gothic architectural masterpiece is well worth seeing.
The Cathedral of Valencia, with its mixture of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles, is a must-see in the city. The most courageous can climb the Miguelete. At the top of the bell tower, after an ascent of 207 steps, a 360° view of the whole city awaits you and will leave you speechless!
If you are discovering the Costa de Valencia as a couple, the Albufera Natural Park is a place not to be missed. This navigable lake, known as the "espejo del sol" (mirror of the sun), offers an incredible sunset.
Located in the heart of the historic center of the city of Gandia, the Ducal Palace is one of the most representative buildings of the historical heritage of the Costa de Valencia. Thanks to its exceptional state of preservation, this building erected in 1399 will take you back 600 years. A must-see!
The town of Gandía, capital of the region of La Safor, is located 50 minutes drive from Valencia airport. Nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of the Sierra, Gandía is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa de Valencia. A success that it owes in particular to its beautiful golden sandy coastline stretching over 5 km. But if Gandía is known for the charms of its coastline, it is not less because of the attractions of its old town. The seigniorial buildings testify to the glorious past of this ducal city. Among the vestiges of this era, how can we not mention the sumptuous Ducal Palace, which stands proudly on the bank of the Serpis? Gandía is also known for its many culinary specialties, including arròz negro, a black paella made with squid ink.
With its magnificent golden sandy beaches and 300 days of sunshine a year, Valencia is one of the most popular destinations on the Mediterranean. Spain's third largest city enjoys an excellent geographical location on the coast and offers a rich architectural heritage. The historic center houses traditional buildings such as the Cathedral Tower or the magnificent Mercat Central (engl. Central Market). In contrast, there are ultra-modern buildings such as the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències (engl. City of Arts and Sciences). This leisure, science and cultural complex has become the city's landmark. Of course, Valencia's gastronomy and nightlife cannot go unmentioned. Let yourself be swept away by the vibrant atmosphere of El Carmen, located in the old town, and Ruzafa, the friendly, cosmopolitan and hippest neighborhood of Valencia.
