Albufera is a like located at about half an hour driving distance from Valencia. This lake is south of Valencia and is surrounded by towns like El Saler and El Palmar. This second one is famous for the rice crops. We have to take into account the Paella is originally from Valencia. And around Valencia, the area of L’Albufera is the most famous one for its rice. Check out some of the tasty restaurants in El Palmar. Another cool plan around the area is to see the sunset, considered one of the best sunsets in Spain.
- Name meaning “saline” in Valencian language, as it was the main economic activity of the area up to the 20th century.
- El Saler is a beautiful beach, possibly one of the nicest near Valencia. Also, less crowded. The main inconvenient is that it is further away (15 min drive South of Valencia). Other beaches like Malvarrosa or Patacona ar much closer.
