Spain has long reigned supreme when it comes to sun-soaked holidays, as well as cultural city breaks. The Spanish Costas each have their own charm and personality, while the variety of resorts within each can offer holidaymakers the chance to stay in just the kind of setting they crave - whether that’s a sleepy fishing village or a sprawling resort with non-stop entertainment.
The cities are also enthralling. There’s Madrid, the Spanish capital, which is worthy of at least several days of anyone’s time. Barcelona is one of Spain’s best-loved destinations, and its position means that visitors can combine art, culture and history with broad, sandy beaches and seafood feasts. Cutting-edge Bilbao has garnered interest in recent times, while Granada and Seville in the sun-soaked south feature stunning architecture as well as flamboyance and flamenco.
Beyond the mainland, Spain also boasts numerous islands. The nearby Balearics have endured and remain a firm favourite with British holidaymakers, whether they want a clubbing break in Ibiza or to relax and unwind on chilled-out Menorca. Majorca remains the firm family favourite, largely due to its abundance of safe, sandy bathing beaches. For something more undiscovered, Ibiza’s close neighbour Formentera is a great option too.
The Canary Islands are Spanish, yet their location off the north coast of Africa means they boast warmer temperatures year-round than their mainland and Balearic cousins. This makes them a very popular choice among those who want to book a winter sun break. Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria are perennially popular, while Fuerteventura is by comparison a quieter, less-visited destination. For those who crave even more seclusion, La Palma and La Gomera are the up-and-coming choices.
A holiday in Spain can be wherever - and whatever - you want it to be. You could easily spend a month travelling around, in which case cheap hotels in Spain might be your best bet to cut costs. Perhaps you’re planning a romantic break for two, and want to fork out for somewhere truly special, such as one of the many 5 star hotels in Spain. For family fun, all inclusive hotels can help you plan your spending, and for many this is the key to a really relaxing stay.
