The discovery of Valencia then continues to the natural park of the Albufera. This site is located 15 km south of the city. It has an area of ​​nearly 21,000 hectares and is home to one of the largest lakes in the Iberian Peninsula, Lake Albufera. This park has great ecological interest, because here several species of water birds, such as wild ducks and herons, come to spend the winter. In 1990,this place was on the list of wetlands of international importance. A visit to the nature reserve can be done in many ways: on foot or by bike. However, the Albufera tourist bus remains the least tiring option and the most complete. Indeed, this bus will take backpackers into the heart of the Natural Park of Albufera. In addition, the ticket costs about 30 € including a boat ride of 30 minutes on the Albufera. The park tour lasts approximately 2 hours and will offer backpackers the opportunity to enjoy a rich ecosystem. Moreover, the Albufera lake separated from the Mediterranean by Devesa del Saler. It is a thin strip of land embellished with pine forests and dunes. Here tourists can swim and laze on a beach with fine pristine white sand.
