The United States Census Bureau defines Spanish Valley as a census-designated place (CDP) in San Juan County, Utah, United States. In common usage, Spanish Valley typically refers to the geographic valley that extends south of the city of Moab, most of which lies within Grand County, the northern neighbor of San Juan County. Maps of the area, for example, label the whole valley—not just the portion in San Juan County—as Spanish Valley.

American Community Survey data from 2013 to 2017 indicated the area's median age in 2017 was 30.2 years, with a margin of error of 17.3 years. Seven years prior, the census showed that this figure was 54.9 years, with a margin of error of 8.3 years.
