The Valencian Coast stretches along a province with two clearly distinct landscapes: the coast and the mountains.

On the coast lay the prosperous districts that enjoy the fabulous fertile plains, with irrigated crops that form an evergreen mosaic all year round. On the other hand, behind an area of gently sloping foothills in which dry and light-irrigation farming are characteristic, lies the wild, almost unknown inland; the mountainous arch of the Valencia mountain range, cut here and there by its impressive river canyons, stands in a setting dotted with vast pine forests where caves and prehistoric shelters with many cave paintings lie hidden. The low, sandy coastline of shallow waters has only one outstanding geographical feature: Cape Cullera. This is the point where the mountains reach the sea. A barrier of dunes flanks the beaches, as well as some marshy areas and freshwater pools, such as the swamps of Puig and Jaraco (Xeraco), and above all, the lagoon of Valencia. This coastline is reached by four rivers that begin their journey in the mountains: Palancia, Turia, Júcar (Xúquer) and Serpis. These meander down to the coastline where they enter the sea, brimming with marine traffic in and around the ports of Sagunto, Valencia and Gandía. There we find modern sailing facilities for sports vessels and lively tourist centres, from where travellers will have the chance to discover the beauty of the highlands, the mountain spas, camping areas, Iberian and Roman towns, emblazoned houses, castles and towers.
