Xeraco Beach, distinguished by its blue flag for the cleanest seas in Europe year after year, with clear waters and fine and golden sands, it is the town’s main tourist attraction. The mouth of the river Vaca, next to the Guaita Tower (16th century), is a spectacular natural beauty spot. Moreover, the ‘Les Fonts de l’Ull i Xopet’ route provides excellent panoramic views of the area.
As well as a wide variety of rice dishes, among which the baked rice and the mixed paella stand out, the most important local dish is the ‘suc d’anguila’ (‘eel stew’). The ‘coca escalada’, made with flour, boiled water and served with sardines, tuna, anchovies and a hard-boiled egg is another typical local dish.
The major festivals of Xeraco take place from the 2nd to the 7th August with celebrations such as parades, fireworks etc… The festivals are held in honour of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación (‘Our Lady of the Incarnation’) and of the Cristo de la Agonía, patron saints of the town
