The three beaches of Valencia beach
The thing you first notice when you see Valencia beach is the fact that it’s huge! The beach can be divided into three different beaches, Las Arenas, La Malvarosa and Patacona.
For dinner or a cocktail, Las Arenas is the ideal beach. Las Arenas is the part of the beach closest to the port of Valencia. In the port you find a few restaurants that are unknown by most tourists but definitely worth a visit. With a tremendous view on the port there is restaurant Dos Lunas Beach, an ideal place for dinner or a glass of wine.
Marina beach club is the beach club at the end of Valencia beach. During daytime the exclusive beach club is open for food, drinks and to enjoy the pool. It is also the ideal location for a night out, when they turn the beach club into a real club.
After Marina Beach Club there finally is the beach. The beach is more than 1 kilometer long and 135 meters wide. At the boulevard there are a lot of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a delicious Paella Valenciana or a beer. One of our favorites is Miramar which is the ideal place to have lunch.
After the boulevard with a lot of restaurants and bars, La Malvarosa beach begins. This part of the Valencia beach has a very wide boulevard with a few very good restaurants as well. You will see a lot of Spaniards and tourist running, walking, riding their bike or roller skating across the boulevard. At the beach there are a lot of beach volleyball fields and football fields where locals of all ages come together to have fun on the beach of Valencia. Also for aquatics this is the ideal location.
The last part of Valencia beach is Patacona. This part is very popular among locals and you will find not as much tourists here as on the other beaches of Valencia. A lot of Spaniards gather here to have a picnic at the edge of the beach. They usually bring tables and uncork a nice bottle of wine.
The beach has a few bars, famous and not so famous. The most famous bar at Patacona is La Mas Bonita, a bar at the boulevard with a nice terrace with sea view. They also have a precious garden on the other side. At La Mas Bonita you can order juices, drinks, sandwiches and last but not least, cake. Spaniards love cake as a snack and La Mas Bonita has an amazing assortment.
