Although the official name of the beach is Playa de Levante (also known as Playa de Cabanyal because of the nearby district of Cabanyal), the beach is still locally known as Playa de las Arenas – (see  Valencia Beach).

Playa del Alboraya

Definitely an acquired taste but one which can really grow on you.

The drink is made from tiger nuts (chuffas) and ice cold milk – even more delicious when you dunk in one of the local doughnuts locally known as fartons.
