Costa Valencia

Costa Valencia



The Valencian Community is one of the seventeen autonomous communities of Spain. Its capital city Valencia. The second city in population is Alicante and the third is  Elche.
Because of its location, Valencia has been for centuries the gateway to the Mediterranean to Spain.

It is located east of the country on the Mediterranean coast, between Catalonia, Aragon to the north, Castile-La Mancha to the west and the region of Murcia in the south. This community includes the provinces of Valencia and Alacant Castelló.

The coastline, (485 km long) low lying and sandy, with shallow water, without any geographical feature Cape Cullera, only point where the mountains meet the sea, presents a barrier of dunes and beaches and marshy areas and points freshwater, as the swamps of Puig and Jaraco (Xeraco), and above all, the Albufera of Valencia. A coastline in which lay four rivers born in the mountains - Palancia, Turia, Júcar (Xúquer) and Serpis - which includes ports with high maritime activity as those of Sagunto, Valencia and Gandía. There are also modern sailing facilities for pleasure boats and lively tourist centers.

La Communauté valencienne est l'une des dix-sept communautés autonomes d'Espagne. Elle a pour capitale Valence. La deuxième ville en population est Alicante et la troisième Elche. 
En raison de son emplacement géographique, Valence a été pendant des siècles la porte de l’Espagne vers la Méditerranée.

Elle est située à l'est du pays, sur la côte méditerranéenne, entre la Catalogne, l'Aragon au nord, la Castille-La Manche à l'ouest et la Région de Murcie au sud. Cette communauté comprend les provinces de Valence, Alacant et Castelló.

Le littoral, (485 km de long) de faible altitude et sablonneux, aux eaux peu profondes, sans autre accident géographique que le cap de Cullera, seul point où les montagnes rejoignent la mer, présente un cordon de dunes près des plages, ainsi que des zones marécageuses et des points d'eau douce, comme les marais du Puig ou de Jaraco (Xeraco), et surtout, l'Albufera de Valence. Un littoral dans lequel se jettent quatre fleuves nés dans les montagnes - Palancia, Turia, Júcar (Xúquer) et Serpis - qui compte des ports à forte activité maritime comme ceux de Sagunto, Valence et Gandía. On y trouve aussi de modernes installations nautiques pour bateaux de plaisance et des centres touristiques animés.
