We went on to one of the local boat trips, and he just pointed the boat ahead while he looked at his phone, never said a word about the lake at all, which although it is huge is fairly dull. more »
We went mid week! Took bus EMT 25. We have gone weekends before and it’s busy! It’s tranquil on the weekdays hardly anyone around (Oct 8) weather perfect. We took a boat out for half hour 4€. The boat guys can’t speak English but they really try hard to speak slowly in Spanish to help you understand. We then walked toward the beach El Saler. Very few people there. I think this is one of the nicest beaches we have been to. There are no bars or restaurants close by though. Great place to spend the day.
The boat tour is OKish, but the beauty of the natural landscape, floral and fauna make it an interesting visit. Better if you complement it with a Valencian rice lunch in the nearby township of El Palmar
