#A trip worth taking to enjoy the most stunning sunset!
Are you seeking the perfect location to enjoy the sunset in Valencia? If so, take a trip to L’Albufera just 20 minutes outside of the city. You can book a local riverboat cruise which takes you to the lake in Albufera where you can stop and enjoy the sunset or ‘Puesta de sol’.
The trip usually lasts around an hour and takes the journey through the winding river coated in enormous reeds, bustling wildlife with a stunning backdrop of plain rice fields and towering mountains in the distance. At the end of this relaxing boat cruise, you will reach the lake where the boat stops so you can truly relax and witness the stunning sunset!
If you are wondering how to embark on this amazing experience, you can book a boat cruise online via www.visitvalencia.com
Once you have booked you will receive all the details in your booking confirmation including address.
You can get to the port by taking the number 25 bus from Puerta Del Mar, Valencia and it will take you to Port Del Saler in Albufera where you can cross the road to the small river port.
As we are now approaching the winter months, it is worth noting that it quickly becomes cold when out on the still lake taking in the views. Luckily the river boats are equipped with blankets to keep you warm however, it is recommended to wrap up warm.
After the cruise, it’s the perfect time to enjoy some paella in the very place it is home to. Around Port Del Saler there are a couple of restaurants and bars to visit, or you can jump on to the 24 bus and ride further into L’Albufera to El Palmer where there are more restaurants to choose from.
Get your cameras charged and at the ready as this experience is definitely one to remember!
