L’Albufera-El Saler

The most special area near Valencia is definitely the zone including the L’Albufera lake, the Dehesa Woods, the rice fields and the coastal villages of El Perellonet, El Perelló and El Saler. Despite being popular amongst tourists, the area has managed to retain its original charm and is still a place where fishermen live. It’s only 40 minutes away from the city centre, so it’s one of the most perfect day trips from Valencia you can try.
Things to do here: take a boat trip on the lake, stroll along the seafront, taste authentic Valencian paella in one of its restaurants (we particularly recommend La Matandeta or El Blayet) and have a picnic on Dehesa Woods. And swim in the beach!

Xátiva is one of those towns around Valencia which has its own personality. It’s well-known for its castle and its steep slopes (and for its high temperatures in summer!) Be prepared to do some good exercise during your visit! The castle has amazing views, so don’t miss them. Of course, there’s much more to see in Xativa: the black cave of Cova Negra, the gardens Jardín del Beso, the Royal Convent of St. Claire…Spending a day out here is a really nice experience, as this city preserves an important artistic heritage. You may get there by train (50 min.) or car (50 min. too).

The Castle of Sagunto & its city

And from one castle…to the next, in one of the most amazing day trips from Valencia. Sagunto city is only half an hour away by car from Valencia, or if you rather use the public transport you may get there by train (40 min.). Did you know that in summer there are outdoor concerts going on in the roman theatre inside the castle’s walls?
A very popular plan is to go out for dinner, and then attend one of the activities during the Summer Festival “Sagunt a Escena”. In fact, it’s not so easy to buy tickets due to high demand!
The city itself is definitely worth seeing. And if you would also like to go to the beach as well, head to Puerto de Sagunto nearby and take a dip!

Bejís & Jérica

Drive 20 minutes on the same road and you will reach Jérica and Bejís. This is a highly recommended day trip from Valencia. In spite of being very small towns (Bejís has less than 500 inhabitants and Jérica about 1.500), if you’ve decided to see Segorbe it’s always a good idea to stop here as well and enjoy the views. Bejís is also known for its fresh clear water, so don’t forget to take a sip from its fountains.

Are you passionate about wine? Requena is just an hour away by car and is the perfect place around for wine and cava tasting. There’s even a Wine Route in the area, including the wine cellars of Torre Oria and Hoya de Cadenas. This city is also famous for its delicious inlay…mouth-watering! We also recommend you to try their patatas bravas (spicy potatoes), as they use a slightly different recipe which makes them unique.
