Golden, Sunny and Rugged: Coasts of Spain
Opting to visit mainland Spain is a great choice, particularly for people not content to laze on the beach every day. With so many coasts (Mediterranean, Cantabrian and the Atlantic) – all with excellent weather, enticing seas and wide beaches, you might feel tempted to spend all of your time sunbathing. But there are also an overwhelming number of things to see and do in Spain, from golf and wine tasting to casinos, parks, Roman amphitheatres and of course, excellent restaurants. The following are a selection of popular coasts in Spain:
Costa Brava is located in the northeast of the country in Catalonia, comprising miles of “wild” coastline that stretches from just north of Barcelona to the French border. Owing to its significant natural beauty, it attracts artists, celebrities, golf enthusiasts and yachtsmen, particularly to Girona, Sant Feliu de Giuxols and Tossa de Mar, where local facilities are excellent.
The “Coast of the Sun” is in the south in Andalusia. Once a string of rustic fishing settlements, it is now a world-class tourist destination for international visitors and the city of Málaga is a prime hotspot for British tourists.
The Costa Blanca or ‘White Coast’ is in the province of Alicante in the south east of the country. Home to tourist classics like Benidorm, Alicante and Dénia, the Costa Blanca has been a British and German hotspot for decades (and for good reason!).
