Spain is a place where you can siesta as much as you can fiesta and it attracts the equivalent of the population of Britain to its shores every year! Spain is truly a popular holiday destination with such diverse locations on offer, there is most certainly somewhere for you. The culture is infectious, as good times roll with the rattling castanets and the claps of flamenco dancers. This buzzing country has the hustle and bustle but also the more rustic side to retreat!
Barcelona to Benidorm – it’s all Spain offering different kinds of holidays for different tastes. Barcelona has fantastic shopping, inspiring Gaudi’s Avant-Garde architecture, and is a great cosmopolitan weekend getaway.
For most tourists, holidays to Spain are all about beaches but, increasingly, foreign visitors are being drawn by its rich cultural heritage and spectacular countryside. Spain has true variety from snow covered mountains with skiing, lush green valleys, arid desert to superb gold beaches.
In contrast if you’re seeking an island castaway, there is a choice of Balearic summer holidays. Majorca has its cosmopolitan capital of Palma and Menorca is a quiet, peaceful and pretty resort for a more relaxing holiday. Ibiza is known throughout the world for its legendary nightlife and captivating beaches, which will convince you to fetch your dancing shoes!
Whether you are enjoying the panoramic views that Spain has to offer, taking a leisurely stroll along the beach or spending long, lazy days relaxing in the warm sunshine, the Costas, meaning “warm coast” are great to explore…
With over 5000 miles of coastline, Spain is world-renowned for its beaches. It doesn`t matter whether you choose the mainland’s Costa Dorada, Costa Blanca, Costa de Almeria, Costa del Sol or the Balearics and the Canary Islands – the beaches are stunning.
A few other Costas to explore are well known Costa Brava, Costa Calida, Costa de la Luz, and Costa del Azahar, all offering the best in beach holidays and cuisine. Spanish food is rich in seafood and cured meats, such as chorizo and Serrano hams. Paella is one of the most common dishes, but what is a must try is the Spanish tapas, a selection of small snacks. It’s a great way of trying everything…a bit like Spain as a whole!
