Less well known outside of Spain than the coastlines further to the south, Costa de Valencia, Costa del Azahar and Costa Daurada have just as much to offer visitors and it is easier to avoid the crowds. The attractions include kilometres of beautiful golden sands; the lively party city of Valencia; the impressive Roman remains at Tarragona and the Palm Grove of Elche a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the north EuroVelo 8 runs parallel with the Mediterranean passing through quiet country lanes away from the developed coastline.
