How to get to the Albufera Natural park from Valencia citycenter
bus stops and timetable - bike and taxi information
La Albufera Natural Park is just south of Valencia and is reachable by bus, taxi, scooter or bike from the center of Valencia. The trip itself offers some lovely views of the beaches, the rice fields, and the lagoon. Furthermore, there is an awesome bike route.
If you go by bike and you do not fancy biking 20 km up to el Palmar you could also stop at the town of El Saler for a good paella and a nice walk over the sand dunes or siesta on the beach. This would be about 12 km from Valencia and the biketrail up to El Saler is good!
You can visit on your own or I can take you there on a bike tour, scooter tour or even in a Vintage Volkswagen tour. Or let me help you with booking the transportation, boattrip, lunch etc.
I helped with arranging some romantic private boatrides with sunset, even some couples proposed!
For groups, I can organize a private bus, a lovely boat trip (with a glass of Cava if you fancy) and a great authentic lunch. We can combine this with a stroll in the park, cooking your own paella and visiting a typical Barraca house.
Some information and tips you might find handy:
A breathtaking sunset you can get near the bus stop at the Gola de Puchol (this is where newlyweds have their picture taken)
You can take a folding bike on the bus!
This is where you can rent a bike or ebike with a discount
A taxi ride will cost you about 25 euro, make sure you set up a time with the driver to pick you up or call the taxi on time. There are almost no taxi´s available directly at the Albufera.
The bus to El saler or Palmar only costs 1,50 per ride. You can find more information on the EMT website
