-Nothing like the East coast.-

Take a sun-umbrella and go to Rototom‘s beach to enjoy the afternoon once you wake up; you’ll need fresh water from the Mediterranean Sea. There will be some food vendors by the beach too.

Just in case you decide there is time for an after party (or just want to go to Valencia the following weekend with your friends) bring some extra stuff to continue at the beach, but do not forget your cooler! It’s a must.
