We were particularly looking forward to lunch at Levis Showboat as they do the most amazing salads.  I had camembert wrapped in sliced beef and Ray had sticky chilli beef.   They come in a crispy tortilla basket (so delicious, but so naughty).

There were great off-road cycle lanes running alongside the beach in both directions one into Albufera National Park and the other direction straight into Valencia.  There was also a bus stop right outside the entrance to the site which we used a couple of times to take the 20-minute journey into the Old Town and Arts & Sciences complex.
