Valencia, Spain (4) – La Malvarrosa Beach
La Malvarrosa Beach is the closet beach to central Valencia and is most popular with the locals. A wonderful promenade is lined with palm trees and has many eateries and bars overlooking the Mediterranean. The largest beach I have ever seen, I couldn’t get over how beautiful the sand was…powdery and soft.
Rod’s detailed shoeprint is evident of how fine the sand is
Being February, the beach is quite deserted.
A small stretch of resorts is located on the southern end of the beach. The large white structure is the Hotel Balneario.

Long promenade with palm trees to the left and wonderful restaurants to the right
Sitting on a bench to the right (beside the bikes) was a busker entertained with lots of tunes from the Beatles 60s roster. Once in a while some of the restaurant patrons (mostly a men’s volleyball team) would burst into a sing-along if they knew the tune.
