Between the city’s commercial port and the Seafront Promenade is Valencia Marina, a cutting edge area with wide spaces for walking, cycling, enjoying the local cuisine and taking part in sports and nautical activities. Developed when the Port was modernised to host the 32nd America’s Cup, this space combines culture, training and enterprise with sports, tourism and gastronomy.
The most emblematic building is the Veles e Vents. It is a cultural building that hosts exhibitions, live music, theatre, conferences and dance. You can also find very good food there, from the Mediterranean restaurant La Marítima, the beer bar Malabar and the great culinary establishment: la Sucursal. In the vicinity you can find many more restaurants, top class hotels and the Marina Beach Club, where the party carries on until the small hours.
Sheltered in a climate that makes it possible to sail every day of the year, sailing is the top activity in the area, with over 800 moorings available for private vessels, with a very competitive price and all types of assistance. There are 39 nautical activity companies, six sports clubs and three sports federations, offering sailing, diving, kayaking, rowing and many other options, including pilates. There are also options for boat rides where you can enjoy the sunset, food and partying on board.
The Marina is also an ecosystem for innovation in business and training. It is home to Bankia Fintech by Innsomnia, the largest financial innovation centre in Spain, as well as Alinghi, Edem, Lanzadera and Angels.
