Along the coast to Peniscola
cycling with sea view
Cycling with sea view, nice and easy! We have selected the nicest paths for you between the fortified town of Peñiscola and Valencia. Sometimes you cycle right along the sea, sometimes a little further inland, along lagoons, rivers and a number of surprising places. In countless places you can walk straight onto the beach from your bike. Or stop for a drink on one of the many boulevards and bars along the way.
From Valencia we first take you to Peñiscola, where you have time to explore the town. Then you get on the bike. The first 15 km you drive on a gravel path through the Sierra de Irta, a protected nature reserve with many bays and beaches. Then on asphalt along the Prat de Cabanes nature reserve, Via Verde del Mar, Marjal de Almenara, Via Xurra and Horta Nord to Valencia. You can easily combine this tour with our cycling tour through theAlbufera (rice fields) and orange groves along the Jucar Riveror theEbro Delta and Via Verde del Zafan. You spend the night in a nice hotel in Benicassim/Grao de Castellón and Canet d´en Berenguer, close to the sea.
