Who’s up for a trip to Valencia? A getaway of different experiences, flavors, and Mediterranean beaches… this is a perfect life! But, there’s a lot more that Valencia has to offer. The views and sunsets of this place are ones that will leave you speechless! That’s why we decided to go out and discover all of the best sunsets in Valencia.
1. The Albufera
This sunset is located in one of the most beautiful natural parks and places in the whole peninsula. As a matter of fact, it’s so beautiful that in ancient times it was referred to as “mirror of the sun” in various Arab poems. Because it is one of the largest lakes in the area, it’s not only a great place to watch the sunset; it’s also great for biking and sailing. If you want to ensure you have the best view of the sunset possible, you just need to move a little bit to the area closest to the lake, the area where the water flows in. This is without a doubt a view that everyone needs to experience at least once in their lives.
2. The City of Arts and Sciences
If ever in Valencia, this is definitely a place you need to visit.
Who said that modern cannot be combined with country? Go to the City of Arts and Sciences to realize that it’s completely possible. The contrast that occurs within the city, because of the orange light that is present when the sun is setting, is one of the most beautiful images you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Even if you don’t want to go there to see the sunset, it is still worth visiting because of the variety of activities that it offers, such as: walking along the botanical promenade, watching a film at the IMAX, and visiting the Oceanographic.
Located in the heart of the city, we find the Tower of Miguelete, which has more of a traditional touch than the previous option. This Gothic bell tower of the Cathedral of Valencia is one of the most touristic places in the area. It’s open every day of the year, so you can always enjoy the unbeatable views and characteristic pink roofs of Valencia. Also, we can enjoy the views without any obstruction because the upper part of the bell tower is free of bars. Are you interested? We’d better get our legs and lungs ready because we’ve got 207 wonderful steps ahead of us.
4. Malvarrosa Beach
This is just one of the best beaches that Valencia has to offer
While you’re in Valencia there is one sunset you cannot miss, and it’s the one offered by Malvarrosa Beach. Its breakwaters allow us to get a little further away from land enjoy the sunset on the coast of Spain. The best thing about this beach? The list goes on; there is a wonderful promenade, it is very lively at all times of the day, and the diversity of bars and restaurants allow you to enjoy a good meal in the purest Valencian style.
5. Park of Headwaters
And for those who don’t enjoy the beach and sand that much, the sunset offered by the Park of Headwaters is a great option. It’s one of the most well-known gardens in the whole city because of the proximity to it. If we feel like it, we can take a ride on the famous pedal boats, where we’ll be able to see many ducks and swans. Also, it offers a panoramic view of the whole city that is a spectacle everyone needs to enjoy at least once. This park is the ideal place to disconnect and get away from the hectic day-to-day activities because of how tranquil and peaceful it is.
Now that you’ve seen the best sunsets, what are you waiting for?
