Brilliant waves

A really good beach where the waves are big and you can wander out loads and you will stay in your depth and the sand is good too

A large open paved area with segways and other activities, and a fenced off area of topical... More

A large beach close to cafes and shops. Ideal for families or couples. Enjoy a walk or swim. Parking can be a problem - sometimes means a bit if a walk

On Monday 8th May in blazing sunshine, we sat on this wide, clean, sandy beach that seems to stretch forever. Apart from the challenging temperature of the water (it is the Atlantic after all) we thought this could be Thailand, yet only a short flight from home. Early May is a bit iffy weather wise and it is changeable, but... More

Probably the beach most people see when they come to Albuferia. Today due to very strong winds, it was not possible for anyone to swim, although we noted a life-guard was still present. It's a long beach wit plenty of sun-loungers and umbrellas and has easy access for anyone visiting the old-town, with toilets and restaurants all close by. Massage... More
