Bus takes about forty five minutes. You are in real countryside and can see the rice fields and lagoon. As featured on Alex Polizzi TV show. Go a bit further - ten minutes walk beyond the bus terminus - and you come to El Perellonet...More

We took the Valencia Tourist Bus (Green Route) to Albufera late in the afternoon. There was only us and one other couple on the bus - perhaps because of the time of day? The journey from the city centre takes around 20 minutes and along...More

Drive out of the city and go into the National Park of the Albufera, where water springs out and forms a lagoon, keeping the sweet water for ducks and herons so they can keep their hideouts during the spring and summer. See the water flow...More

We avoided using the tourist bus and did this by public transport. The local bus number 25 to El Parma cost 1.5 euros each way. The journey took about 45 mins. El Parma is a small town on the lake. Boat rips go out onto...More

I would think that actually on one of the boat tours would be great, they go slow enough to get some good burst shot photos and you're right out on the water.
What are the hiking trails like? Are they paved?
