El Saler is the narrow tongue of land between La Albufera and the sea. It is a town located very close to the city of Valencia, next to the port and the new watercourse of the Turia.

After the first kilometer of route you will have to pass through two walkways. The first one will lead you to the Parroquia de la Purísima Concepción, and the next one passes over the railway tracks and the port.
