Holidays in Spain

Spain has some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean.

With some of the cheapest air fares in Europe, Spain has become one of the most popular destinations for tourists looking for either a quick getaway or a longer holiday, all year round. Whether it is a tailor made two week break in one of the many stunning seaside resorts of Costa Brava or a winter getaway to the ever pleasant climate of the Canary Islands, Spain has something for everyone.

On mainland Spain, sun-drenched beaches decorate the coasts that are home to some of the most vibrant and exciting five star luxury resorts, like those of the Costa del Sol and Costa Dorada. In these areas all your needs are catered for; from watersports and land-based activities to every cuisine imaginable, all the while the party and nightlife scene is nearby for those who prefer a livelier holiday.

Resorts throughout Spain boast golden coastlines offering a wide range of self-catering apartments and all inclusive accommodation with evening entertainment and a packed timetable of activities to keep the little ones amused. Similarly, the islands under Spanish control that scatter the seas are a great alternative but with the same Spanish values that make holidays worth their weight in sun. The Balearic Islands, in the Mediterranean Sea, and the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean, offer affordable, fun-packed holidays in Spain.

For the young ones and those young at heart, there are the notorious party islands of IbizaMajorca and Tenerife, with the legendary nightlife of San AntonioMagaluf and Playa de las Americas providing ideal clubbing holidays! On the other hand, the islands of Menorca and Fuerteventura are perfect for when you want a little romantic seclusion with a loved one.

Spanish City Escapes

Short breaks and low-key holidays are becoming increasingly popular with families visiting Spain. Sometimes you want to shrug off the five star resorts and visit the fabulous cities dotted around the country. Spanish city breaks are a must for those wanting a different experience from the sun, sea and sand you’d find in the Costa Blanca region of the east coast. If you seek a relaxing city break then try Barcelona, with its unique architectural style (think Gaudi’s bizarre turrets and balconies) or Madrid, a history lover’s dream.

Fancy spicing it up a little? Try the wonderful blend of both city and beach cultures in the beautiful coastal city of Cadiz. The remarkable city of Granada in Andalucia will give you great insights into Spanish culture while those who want relaxation but with all the amenities of the larger resorts, Costa de Almeria is the place for you and comes highly recommended.

Sun, Sand, History and Culture

Spain offers child friendly beaches and plenty of activities.
Spain’s vibrant culture, mild climate, unique cities, friendly locals and colourful festivals will amaze and delight even the most seasoned traveller. If art and culture are your passion, then you can enjoy Dali, Picasso and Velazquez - proudly displayed in museums and galleries. For a more provincial experience, the town of Buñol in Valencia goes wild every year with the La Tomatina festival – a wonderful chance to get messy with nature. At this time the region's surplus tomatoes are pelted about in the streets in a friendly riot. Spain is also a country rich in heritage and the historic city of Seville, near to the Costa de la Luz, promises a wealth of early Christian buildings and monuments. There are also the remains of some incredible medieval sites to discover.
