Best beaches in Spain

Family friendly holidays in Spain

Spain has long been known as an addictive place to visit. You may have been initially inspired by a walking tour, city break or beach holiday in Spain, but did you know that it offers so much more. From its Intriguing fiesta’s, Barcelona’s contemporary architecture, the culture and nightlife of Madrid to the insatiable climate of the Costas, Spain really has a lot to tempt even the experienced traveller. True, the keen adventurer may rightly expect more ….and Spain delivers for the first time visitor or the well equipped traveller. We have even done our homework researching family friendly Spanish holiday resorts, offering honest none biased trip reviews, so that you can book a bargain holiday to Spain without having to worry about visiting an area that’s unfamiliar to you.

How about hiking or skiing from the flat-topped linear ranges of the Pyrenees mountains or tracing Moorish history around narrow street corners of the South all the way back to 711AD ? The Moor’s had a fascinating influence on the country, which has been a worthy pursuit of many a curious traveller. Their mark is found on everything from the language to some of Spain’s most famous attractions, such as the Alhambra in Granada. Too, in the more industrious northern part of the country, larger cities such as Barcelona and Bilbao are now even more famous for inspiring chefs from around the globe to recreate their popular dishes.

Some of the best beaches in the world, in our opinion, can be found in Spain. Maybe you have heard of Costa Blanca, Costa Brava, Costa Cálida, Costa de la Luz, Costa del Sol, Costa Dorada, Costa Verde? Most of us have already been to the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands and seen for ourselves the amazing coasts. It is not hard to believe why Spain probably has more blue flag beaches than anywhere else.

Even in busier Spanish tourist areas, one doesn’t have to journey far around a corner, to be satisfied by unmatched experiences. The pleasant aromas of locally prepared, colourful, sizzling dishes and the sounds of gregarious Spanish families chattering whilst sharing them. One will never forget the scene of an older Spanish fisherman meticulously casting a line in the glow of evening sunshine, determined not to leave until they bring in the evening supper.

Maybe you’re already an addicted returning visitor, who agreed to visit Spain initially only to please the family. Yet now, you too are hooked on this incredible place where lush lemons, nutritious avocados and almonds grow all around and where the best extra virgin olive oil is pressed and offered locally.  In that case, you well know why people flock in their millions to this hospitable country that offers quite contrasting attractions and opportunities.
