A hidden gem known only to Valencia locals and the most well-read travellers, Mikkonos Beach Club offers a unique experience just seven miles from the vibrant city centre.
A casual eatery on unspoilt sands, this stylish restaurant offers authentic coastal charm, some of the best food in Valencia, and a chance to truly disconnect from busy city life.
On the shores of El Saler beach
At El Saler, pristine sands glimmer in the Mediterranean sun, while romantic dunes offer secluded spots and quiet isolation far from the buzzing city.
A beautiful restaurant hidden on these golden sands, you can reach Mikkonos Beach Club by car or by bike along a cycle route that wends its way through the Turia Gardens, past Valencia port and along the coast towards the Albufera Nature Reserve and charming El Saler.
A Mediterranean medley
The top chefs make everything to order at this family-style restaurant, creating the most mouthwatering dishes from the fresh bounties of the nearby Mediterranean and Albufera farms. From steaming paellas to tender cuts of meat, it’s a true taste of Spain.
Plunge into a world of authentic flavour with platters piled high with sizzling fish dishes and piles of perfect croquettes filled with traditional Spanish Jamon Iberico, tender chicken or sumptuous baby squid.
A bite into the crispy hake and prawn cannelloni, served with sweet red pepper salsa, is an experience you’ll be trying to replicate in your kitchen for years to come.
A family atmosphere
An authentic Valencian atmosphere prevails in this coastal restaurant, where you’ll be treated like family from the moment you arrive.
Friendly waiters guide you to your table while the owners discuss the magic of El Saler and the history of the traditional dishes on the menu.
