The Malvarrosa Beach, with its golden sand and attractive promenade, is one of Valencia's most popular coastal areas.

The waters are ideal for swimming, and you'll find lifeguard services and amenities like showers and changing rooms. Moreover, the bars and restaurants along the Malvarrosa are perfect for savouring a cold beer or a refreshing vermouth.
