  • We recommend walking route through the nature park, passing through the Bird Observatory and the jetty. The attention from tourism services is always of great value and provide maps and interesting information.

  • Bicycle rented and from Valencia are cycled. Follow the bike path, it can't go wrong. Enough outdoor cafes along the way. Also important.
