Cabanyal/ Malvarossa
Valencia Connect > Guide > Areas > Cabanyal/ Malvarossa

Also comprising 'Playa de Levante', Valencia's city beach is rapidly developing,  with new restaurants and bars being opened all the time along the palm tree shaded seafront promenade. Some areas around Malvarossa and Cabanyal have, in the past, had a reputation for being rather undesirable with drug use and theft commonplace. The situation is changing and improving all the time and the area is being cleaned up at lightning speed, perhaps the up and coming America's Cup is the main positive influence.  The quaint little multi colored 'casitas' (houses) around this area remind one of times gone by when the whole area was inhabited by local fishermen who pulled fresh catches daily from the Mediterranean waters.  It’s still a great spot to go for fresh seafood (try to reserve a table on Sundays when restaurants are often packed out).

At the end closest to the Port is 'Playa de Levante / las Arenas’ with a string of good restaurants and bars.  The waters here can be a little dirty due to the proximity of the port. Heading South, you reach the wide stretch of Playa de Malvarossa. For an urban beach, this one is excellent, with wide, clean sands and good facilities including public toilets, first aid, sports equipment rental, sun loungers, volley ball courts and life guards on duty (there is also a handicapped bathing area).  This beach is positively all action, at times you feel as if you should be an extra on Baywatch.

Following the promenade ‘Paseo Maritimo’, you can walk right up to the Playa de Alboraya (around 1 hour walk) situated next to the Alcampo hypermarket where there’s a couple of good restaurants and weekend crowds are less.

It’s easy to get to the beach area from the city by either hopping on the 19 bus which runs every 10 minutes from the center or catching the metro from Benimaclet which drops you off directly in Cabanyal.  If you are energetic, you can cycle there from Blasco Ibanez in around 10 minutes although traffic can be heavy (the powers that be are planning to knock down a lot of the casitas to construct a direct road link from here to the beach area).
