Balearics

Visit the Balearics for a holiday with fabulous beaches, dreamy landscapes, and endless scenery to explore and enjoy. If you visit Ibiza or Majorca, you’ll find spectacular coastlines for the day and exhilarating nightclubs and bars during the evenings. If you want somewhere more serene but just as gorgeous, Menorca is known as the Jewel of the Balearics and particularly suits families and couples.

Canaries

The sheer beauty of the Canary Islands lies in the turquoise waters and the rugged volcanic landscapes and mountains. 4 of Spain’s 15 national parks are in the Canaries, making them a hotspot for nature enthusiasts and hikers. The nightlife can be lively and fun, and the cuisine is freshly-caught and filled with flavour. With their stunning scenery and countless things to do, the Canary Islands attract about 14 million annual visitors.

Benidorm

Benidorm is a famously fun holiday destination that attracts tourists from across Europe, and is particularly popular with Brits. The divine Mediterranean weather makes days lounging by the pool, sipping drinks and bathing in the sun, an ever-attractive option. You can either stay in the resort relishing the facilities, or take a look further out in search of waterparks, tantalising tapas, and more.

Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol enjoys over 320 days of sunshine every year, and a holiday there means an experience as laid back or as lively as you please. Making up part of Spain’s “Sunshine Coast”, Costa del Sol has a mammoth coastline of golden sand and all the opportunities to enjoy the wonderful weather. In Costa del Sol there are welcoming resorts, beach clubs, tapas bars, shops, whitewashed villages, and everything you could need for a Spanish holiday.

Costa Dorada

Costa Dorada is the Spanish resort to visit if you want Catalonian culture to be part of your family holiday. PortAventura is one of the largest theme parks in Europe as well as one of the most popular attractions in Costa Dorada. Alongside the thrills of the waterpark and the gravity-defying rollercoasters, you’ll find that there is much more to discover here too: Roman remains of Tarragona, a stunning beach in Salou, and Barcelona a short train ride away.

Costa Blanca

Costa Blanca is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Spain for enviable beaches, a party-packed nightlife, and superb weather. It’s just as popular with families as it is with groups, singles, and couples, with its culture, waterpark, and stunning scenery. You’ll also find whitewashed buildings and cobbled backstreets in the resort’s older towns, and restaurants selling traditional Spanish cuisine as well as quiet bars and cafes to enjoy when the dazzling sun becomes too much or for a relaxing evening’s entertainment.

Must visit – To list the “must visit” attractions and sights in Spain is like trying to count the grains of sand on a beach. The historical architecture of Barcelona, the spectacular beaches of the Canary Islands, the cityscapes of Madrid and Barcelona, and the dreamy beauty of the Mediterranean make Spain a glamorous holiday in the sun. If you have the chance, visit Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, a traditional tapas bar, and at least one of the country’s buzzing cities.


Family fun – Spain caters for almost every kind of tourist, but it is particularly appealing to families. The waterparks and attractions of Torremolinos are bested only by the seafront promenade and its wonderful beaches. Benidorm offers great family accommodation, an excellent aquapark, and a Blue Flag coastline that sees parents and kids enjoying the sand and sea throughout the many warm months of the year. Tenerife has Europe’s biggest waterpark at Siam Park, and Menorca has been called the “perfect island for families”.


Natural attractions – Spain and its surrounding islands offer some of the most enthralling natural landscapes in the world. From Lanzarote’s Parque Nacional de Timanfaya which resembles Martian scenery, to the Caminito Del Rey pathway between two stunning gorges in Malaga, and the remote beach of Sa Calobra in Majorca. Spain also has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Torremolinos in Costa del Sol is a family favourite, La Concha in San Sebastian is an urban city beach just 13 miles from the French border, and both the Balearics and the Canaries are dotted with Blue Flags and turquoise waters.


Culture and history – Spain is filled with opportunities for a cultural a holiday, with its museums, galleries, and preserved ancient ruins to explore and enjoy. If it’s art that you’re after, the Picasso and Carmen Thyssen museums are in Malaga, while you’ll find the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres. For an exciting hit of history, you’ll find Roman ruins in Merida, Tarragona, and Seville, and important architectural accomplishments from designers such as Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, Granada, and Salamanca.


Food and drink – Tapas is one of the best-known examples of Spanish cuisine: dips, appetisers, and snacks served alone to accompany a drink or as a range of dishes to make a full meal. Whether it’s a cold snack such as olives or cheese, or hot foods like patatas bravas, chorizo cooked in red wine, or sticks of spicy meat, tapas is delicious and packed with flavour. There is much more than just tapas to enjoy: Andalucia’s Gazpacho soup, chocolate y churros in Madrid, and paella in Valencia are just a few examples of Spain’s scintillating signature tastes.


Night life – In Spain, you’ll find any kind of night out that you could want, whether it’s a traditional Spanish evening spent laughing over tapas before visiting the local bars, or an intense night out in some of the most frenetic clubs in Europe. The party scenes in Barcelona and Madrid are lively, but perhaps not quite as adrenaline-fuelled as a night out in Ibiza. If it is a quainter, more charming evening you are seeking, you’ll find traditional bars and restaurants across Seville, Torrevieja in Costa Blanca, and Valencia.
