Sizzling Spain

Spain holidays transport you to a country full of passion and life, from historical cities and charming culture, to snowy mountains and sunny beaches – Spain has it all. As one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations, it’s safe to say that Spain’s wealth of attractions are variable enough to suit the tastes of any visitor. Culture vultures will relish the cathedrals, churches and castles in cities like Madrid, while artistic types will love venturing around the many museums and galleries found across various Spanish cities, Such as the home of Picasso, Malaga.

Beach bums will embrace the immense coastline, boasting sandy beaches, hidden bays and blues seas, encompassing those classic summer holidays to Spain, while hikers and nature lovers will embrace the rugged landscapes found in the Andalucian mountain ranges and across the Canary Islands – the volcano-clad island of Tenerife springs to mind.

A Contagious Culture

Across all of Spain’s cities it is easy to experience the country’s unique and captivating culture. Found in the form of architectural prowess, flawless museums, intriguing historical sites and a wonderful culinary scene – Spain holidays drop you deep into a vibrant ethos that is pleasantly infectious. Head to Barcelona for 4-star luxury on the famous Las Ramblas while seeking for a glimpse of Gaudi’s architectural treasures in the form of the Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, or head to the capital, Madrid, where you can sip a cool beer in the grandeur of Plaza Mayor before exploring the engaging museums district.

Outside ‘the big two’ you’ll discover some equally alluring sites of Spanish culture and history, especially in the form of the world-famous Alhambra in Granada. Surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada and boasting grand plazas, imposing cathedrals and charming churches, Granada has plenty of strings to its bow. The historic city of Malaga is another big draw for culture vultures, home of Picasso and holding the title of the oldest city in Spain – the city’s wonderfully-preserved Moorish castle is a true highlight of the Costa del Sol.

Sun and Sand

Beach getaways and holidays in Spain go hand in hand, offering families and couples sunny breaks by the sea, with sandy stretches and countless water sports keeping holidaymakers occupied and satisfied. The Costa del Sol has long been a huge draw for tourists seeking some Spanish sunshine, and today the region is as vibrant and alluring as ever. Lively resort towns like Benidorm, Marbella and Torremolinos provide the perfect family destination, promising beach, activities and great food. But you don’t have to head south to experience the treasures of Spain’s coast – in the north near the border of France you’ll find more strips of sandy perfection and a burgeoning surf scene, particularly around San Sebastian.

The offshore islands on holidays to Spain provide another big draw for holidaymakers seeking beach thrills and Spanish culture, yet on an island with its own unique identity. The Balearics offer just that, with vibrant nightlife, stunning natural landscapes and beautiful beaches adorning the likes of Ibiza and Majorca. Along the coast of Northern Africa, the stunning Canary Islands promise even more island paradise for sun worshippers. The islands experience a huge amount of sunshine all year, with Tenerife and Lanzarote home to spectacular volcanic landscapes, national parks and museums, and of course those lovely expanses of sand we all pine for.
