  • The boats get walks in La Albufera. Nice stroll through the channels between the hurdle, and more even when you pull out to open water. You have several options for shipping and all more or less four people charge you 4eur or 5eur per person minimum (if do not charge you the 20eur which is minimum out cost). From the viewpoint of Pujol (or waves) on the same road CV500 have boats that you wander through La Albufera, the other place is known in the village of El palmar many boat trips, and you have a great range of restauranets for lunch or dinner.
