So, get ready to pedal and go head to El Saler and L’Albufera. The large L’Albufera natural park lies to the south of the Turia capital, at the end of the city itself, surrounded by rice paddies providing the rice with which the paella is made.
Before arriving at L’Albufera, on your way there, you will find El Saler road, a typical Mediterranean forest that has been preserved virgin in front of the city growth. A nature’s oasis between too urban surroundings. The area of El Saler has several cycle routes with which you spend a morning or afternoon if you rent a bike Valencia discovering the area fauna and flora. You will also find an untouched beach, with its typical dunes, in case you want to take a bath. A true Mediterranean paradise.
THE PARADISE OF L’ALBUFERA BY BIKE
Following your route by bike you will see the L’Albufera lake, an extensive freshwater lake by the sea. The sunsets on the lookout point are incredible beauty. In the L’Albufera center you will find the El Palmar village, an island in the middle of the lake, although it has direct access by the El Saler road. So when you rent a bike Valencia you will have no problem getting here by pedaling. With your bikes come here, and if you have time, take a stroll in one of the L’Albufera typical boats . In addition, El Palmar is one of the areas with more typical Valencian restaurants.
