 The Mediterranean Sea and the city beaches

The harbor, a very important active landmark of the city, splits the maritime front into two main parts. To the north, joined by a wide and attractive promenade, the most crowded and urban beaches: the Malvarrosa and the Cabanyal. To the south, a line of pleasant beaches along the Albufera Nature Park, including the only “wild” beach of the municipality, La Devesa.
