Each year Lonely Planet puts together its list of “10 cities with brilliant beaches”. We are proud to say that Valencia appeared alongside some fabulous cities including Miami, Rio de Janeiro and Sydney. This shows that Valencia is being recognised as a world-class city.
Here is the description of Valencia from the list:
One of Lonely Planet’s top 10 cities for 2011, Valencia sits coquettishly and confidently along Spain’s Mediterranean coast offering plenty of choice for beach-lovers. Spread your towel on broad Playa de la Malvarrosa or neighbouring Playa de las Arenas, each bordered by the Paseo Marítimo promenade and a string of restaurants. One block back, lively bars and discos thump out the beat in summer.
What do you think of Valencia’s beaches? Which is your favourite beach-side restaurant or bar?
