What with the world focused in on the coronavirus, many of us have decided to cancel plans and stay indoors. In Valencia, the summer time is beautiful and so getting outdoors is definitely the best remedy … especially after the year we have all had so far!
There are so many things you can do in the city where you can be safe and keep your social distance from others. So, don’t stay inside and miss out on a fantastic summer. Rather, get out there and enjoy Valencia while of course making sure to stay safe at the same time!
Here are some of our top recommendations of things to do in Valencia this summer…
Did you realize just how spectacular the Valencia region really is? Towns like Morella, Altea, Xátiva and more are bursting with charm and charisma, just waiting to be explored. With a lower number of tourists at these sites, you can surely enjoy a quieter time in these touristic hotspots than per usual.
Walking around villages, towns and nature spots, especially those near to the coast, means that you are still able to socially distance and enjoy the sea breeze while you’re at it! Now is a great time to enjoy local tourism and discover the beauty of the Valencia region.
We all need to get outdoors and exercise! After lockdown, we feel an even greater urge to get outdoors and enjoy nature while working out. Valencia is offering free fitness classes this summer, at the beach!
Until August 31st, you can join Yoga, General fitness, Pilates, Taichi and many more exercise classes on the Malvarrosa Beach. They usually take place next to the main volleyball courts and there are morning and evening classes available. Morning classes are held between 8am – 11am and evening work outs take place from 7:30pm to 9:30 pm.
It’s a fun activity to do with friends or even to meet other people this summer. Don’t worry, social distancing is mandatory in all fitness classes to protect yourself and others.
Bioparc is the name of Valencia’s zoo, where many different species of animals live in recreation in their own natural and wild habitat. The visit is essentially a trip into nature while witnessing the lives of the wild animals that live there. It’s a great experience and definitely a great outdoors activity right now!
What’s more, on Fridays and Saturdays until August 29th you can compliment your visit with “Las Cenas en la Sabana”. For less than €30.00 you can enjoy having dinner in the park, while enjoying the sunset watching lions and other wild animals.
The Fair is in Valencia this summer and a fun day/ night out for all the family! From August 1st to 31st, the old Turia river (a.k.a Turia gardens) is home to the summer fair and full of rides for kids and adults.
Each ride has their own safety protocol to grant protection to all visitors and increase the safety of the experience. Regarding the schedule, rides will be open until 11:00 pm from Sunday to Thursday, and until 2:00 am on Fridays and Saturdays!
We sincerely hope this gives you a good reason to get out and enjoy the Valencia summer, you really won’t want to miss it! For more info on Valencia and its community, click here.
