Valencia isn’t known as one of the quintessential beach destinations in Spain, yet this major port city and region boast some impressive, unspoilt beaches in their own right. Here is a round-up of Culture Trip-approved seaside hotels and places to stay on this part of the Spanish coast.

1. Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort

Situated in an enclave next to the Mediterranean is Hotel Meraki – a little place that guests love for its tranquillity and intimate setting as it has just 12 rooms over two floors. All rooms have a private terrace with sea views in which you can catch sunrise. The hotel’s Sky Bar is on the terrace, also has sea views and provides an impressive cocktail list, so is the perfect spot for sundowners.

7. Hotel Neptuno

It’s described as an urban hotel, yet Neptuno is right on the beach. The interior is adorned with paintings and sculptures by local artists including Antonio de Felipe, Miquel Navarro, Andreu Alfaro and Willy Ramos – an art-lover’s dream.

Known for its thematic style, Gabbeach Hotel is a small yet beautifully unique hotel in Valencia. With just 12 rooms that all differ in design and character, the property is cosy and homely, but also elegant.
