How to find lodging in fallas?
If you plan
to visit Valencia in fallas, look for lodging with enough advance.
In February already you will have difficulties to choose. If you don't

Valencia is a safe city, but be cautious, you must watch your bags,
cameras and valuables objects, because the tourists are

also, the Saler Beach, because is a protected
natural space, so it conserves the aspect of a virgin beach, with dunes
and the typical vegetation of the coastal zone. The Saler is
10 km away from Valencia, in South direction.
