Valencia Beach Clubs – A Local’s Guide


One of the biggest things that influenced my decision to move to Valencia back in 2021 was the fact that Valencia has a gorgeous sandy coastline that stretches for miles.

Spanish cities are hot, and so it was important to me to be able to be close to the sea so that I could cool down during the sweltering summer months!


However, although Valencia’s beaches are beautiful, Valencia beach clubs are few and far between.

Spanish people prefer to relax in casual chiringuitos over fancy beach clubs, and they also like to make their own parties right on the sand!

In fact, there is only one ‘proper’ beach club in Valencia!


In this guide, I’m going to share all the details of Valencia’s one and only beach club.

I’m also going to reveal my favourite chiringuitos (beach bars), as well as some great venues with open-air terraces and DJs that deliver beach club vibes all night long.

So, whether you want to enjoy an ice-cold beer on a sun lounger, or dance the night away under the stars, I’ve got you covered.

Let’s get into it.


Valencia Beach Clubs – A Local’s Guide


Marina Beach Club


Marina Beach Club is the only real beach club in Valencia, and it is located in the marina (as the name would suggest!).

Marina Beach Club combines the idyllic vibes of Bali with a chic Mediterranean edge.

Kick back and relax by the infinity pool on a plush daybed or water bed, bag a sun lounger on the beach to soak up all of that Valencian sun, and listen to live music and international DJs as day turns into night.

Marina Beach Club has been around since 2016, and its popularity is only growing with each passing summer.

Facilities


The biggest attraction at Marina Beach Club is its infinity pool, which is surrounded by daybeds, sun loungers, and even water beds!

There are also plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas right on the beach.

Sunbed and lounger rentals also vary in price depending on the day of the week and time of year, ranging from 20 EUR per person (midweek in low season) to 80 EUR (weekends during the summer).

You can find the full price list here.

Food at Marina Beach Club


In terms of food, there are two restaurants at this stunning Valencia beach club.

If you’re craving traditional Valencian cuisine, you’ll probably prefer El Portet, which sits right on the beach and specialises in rice and seafood dishes.

If you’re craving something a little avant-garde, the more experimental Marina Restaurant serves Valencian classes with an upscale twist, and also has a dedicated menu for Japanese food.

For a more casual bite to eat, you can order burgers and sandwiches from the poolside menu.


Night


When the sun goes down, the pool closes and the open-air party commences!

From live bands to international DJs, Marina Beach Club is the place to be if you’re craving a bit of beachy nightlife in Valencia.

The party is split into two sessions – afternoon (from 4:30pm until 11:00pm) and night (11:00pm until 3:30am). If you have purchased an entrance ticket for the afternoon/evening session, you can stick around for the night session, provided that there aren’t any special events scheduled.

Find out more on their website.

If you’re looking for some VIP treatment, there is also a special area overlooking the dancefloor with bottle service and shisha.

Entry fees start at 10 EUR but can vary depending on the season and any special events happening.

You can find Marina Beach Club at Marina de Valencia, Poblados Marítimos, 46001.


Akuarela Playa


Akuarela Playa isn’t a ‘proper’ beach club where you can recline on a sun lounger and work on your tan.

In fact, it only opens at night!

However, while it isn’t a classic beach club, this open-air nightclub is located right on La Malvarrosa beach (the main beach in Valencia), and plays music until the sun comes up. You can catch a great sunrise, if you last that long!

Depending on the night, you can expect all kinds of music here, from 80s hits to reggaeton.

It isn’t cheap (expect to pay 7 EUR for a 33cl beer), but clubs in Valencia typically are quite expensive.

Akuarela Playa is open Thurs/Fri from midnight until 7:30am, and Saturday from 5:00pm until 7:30am.

You can find Akuarela Playa at C/ d’Eugènia Viñes, 152, Poblats Marítims, 46011.

La Casa de la Mar


La Casa de la Mar (The House of the Sea!) is a huge open-air bar and cultural space.

Situated just 100m from Patacona Beach, this place definitely has a beach club vibe. You’ll find several spaces inside this former industrial warehouse, including a ‘secret’ indoor terrace and the huge event hall, which has food trucks and performance stages.

La Casa de la Mar is open all day on weekends, so you can enjoy some cold beers and order a bite to eat on their outdoor terrace with sea views – just close your eyes and pretend you’re in a hammock!


Food here is by The Black Turtle, a famous burger chain in Spain, so you certainly won’t go hungry.

In the evenings you can enjoy concerts, karaoke, Latin nights, reggaeton DJs, and a whole host of other vibrant events.

La Casa de la Mar is open Thurs/Fri from 6:00pm until 1:00am, and Saturday/Sunday from 12:00pm until 1:00am. You can find it at Av. Blasco Ibáñez, 8, 46120, Alboraya.


Chiringuitos


The closest things you’ll find to beach clubs in Valencia (aside from Marina Beach Club) are the chiringuitos (beach bars) dotted along the sand.

There aren’t too many chiringuitos in Valencia, but there are a couple of places where you can grab a Tinto de Verano and a bite to eat.


Something to note is that according to Google Maps, most of Valencia’s chiringuitos are ‘temporarily closed.’ This is because beach bars in Valencia always close up for the winter, and reopen during the spring. As I write this article, it’s April, and you can rest assured that Valencia’s chiringuitos are very much open for business!

Beachbol


When you arrive at Malvarrosa Beach (the main beach), you’ll find Beachbol, which was my usual haunt when I lived in Valencia.

It doesn’t have swanky beach club vibes, but it does have tables and chairs, music, and reasonably-priced food (think smoothies, wraps, and salads) and drink.

You can also use their volleyball nets for free for up to 2 hours a day!

You can find Beachbol here.

Chiringuito Patacona


If you walk along the beach (away from the port), you’ll come to Patacona Beach, and Chiringuito Patacona.

Chiringuito Patacona has a great atmosphere, boho aesthetic, and serves affordable snacks and drinks.

The best thing about Chiringuito Patacona is that you can rent sun loungers here for a fraction of the price that Marina Beach Club charge. In the summer of 2023, the cost of two sunbeds and an umbrella was 20 EUR for the day.


Because Patacona Beach is a bit further along the coast, it’s a lot quieter, and far less touristy.

You can find Chiringuito Patacona here.


Chiringuito tres14


Slightly further along the beach from Chiringuito Patacona is Chiringuito tres14.

I first discovered Chiringuito tres14 when I went to an afternoon beach party, and I thought it was so cute that I couldn’t resist sneaking off for a drink here!


This place gets busy in the summer, and you’ll find good music, a friendly crowd, and super cool vibes.

They don’t have sun loungers, but they do have beanbags and comfy chairs to relax on!

You can find Chiringuito tres14 here.

Valencia Beach Clubs | Final Thoughts


As you can see, there aren’t a plethora of options when it comes to beach clubs in Valencia.

With its Instagram vibes, infinity pool, and glamorous parties, Marina Beach Club is the place to go for a quintessential beach club experience in Valencia.

However, if all you really want is a place to rent a sun lounger and drink some cold beers, I recommend heading to a chiringuito instead.

Chiringuitos are more affordable, more authentic (in my humble opinion), and don’t require reservations.

If you aren’t too bothered about sunbathing and simply want to enjoy Valencia’s nightlife on the beach, I hope the clubs that I’ve recommended are to your taste!

It’s also common for young Spanish people to throw huge parties right on the beach, so if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon one!

That’s all I’ve got for today, but as always, if you have any questions about Valencia, please reach out in the comments section below. I lived in the province of Valencia for almost 2 years (and the city centre for a year), so I know quite a bit about this place!
