If you’re keen to explore the most stunning areas of natural beauty in the Region of Valencia, the Clot de Galvany should be on your to-visit list. This wetland is part of a number of pools in the Elche area of Balsares and is connected to the dunes and pine forests of El Carabassí beach. It is a superb example of a coastal wetland.

The terrain is overrun by a unique grass landscape, with species such as albardine and sea lavender. If you look closely, you will even see some of the terraces that were formerly used for agriculture.
