Fiestas, flamenco and family-friendly resorts

We don't really feel the need to sell Spain as a holiday destination. After all, it's been doing pretty well for itself since the fifties. Whether you're looking to explore Spain's culture-rich cities, bum around on the beach or ramble around rural villages there really is something for everyone. Plus, with a fidget friendly flight time of just two hours, the kids will be building sandcastles as you – reluctantly – blow up their inflatables in no time.

Spain is one of the world's favourite holiday destinations. Scenically beautiful and culturally welcoming, the country has a long list of fine wine and scrumptious food that only complements its sunny coastlines – which are as attractive in summer as they are under the winter sun.

The Spanish people are full of passion and charm. Hospitality is a long-standing tradition and you'll be welcomed by locals with open arms. You'll undoubtedly be kissed on both cheeks countless times, so often in fact that it becomes second nature. Just don't be going round kissing everyone you meet when you return home, you don't want to startle anyone.

From sunbathing to skiing

From huge pans of paella to tantalising tapas, Spanish food is all really tasty and best washed down with a gulp of sangria. Because the Spaniards take an afternoon siesta each day, which we think is a bloomin' good idea, they eat much later on an evening. You shouldn't be surprised to see restaurants opening as late as 9:00pm, or that the locals flock to dine in local eateries. It's a testament to excellent food quality and reasonable prices.

Spanish holidays aren't all about siestas and fiestas, although they're a big part of it. From wandering around the Casco Antiguo in Marbella to cabaret in Benidorm, paella in Valencia and Gaudi in Barcelona, Spain is a great place for the young, old and everyone in between. In winter you can even soak up the sun whilst skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Crazy, huh?

When it comes to beach holidays, it's all about the Costas. These sun-drenched coastlines have much more to offer than just sea and sand. They're full of fun in the sun and cater very well for families. You're sure to find something to tempt you from your sunbed, whether you want to make a splash in a waterpark or sample fine Spanish wines by candlelight.

The wide variety of affordable package holidays on offer makes holiday to Spain really convenient – and they won't break the bank. With so many great resorts to choose from, you may be finding it hard to decide where to go so we've written a quick overview of our top three Costas to help you out. If none of them take your fancy though, explore the links at the side of this page for more ideas.

Costa Brava

In the north east of the country, in Catalonia, Costa Brava boasts miles of wild coastline that stretches from just north of Barcelona to the French border. Owing to its rugged natural beauty, the Costa Brava attracts artists, celebrities, golfers and luxury yachts, particularly to Girona, Sant Feliu de Giuxols and Tosse de Mar.

Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol lies to the south of Spain, in Andalucía. Once home to a string of rustic fishing villages, it's now a world-class tourist destination. As you could probably guess, the secret to the sunshine coast's success is in its name. Boasting 320 days of sun each year, and temperatures that rarely dip below 20°C, you can relax by beaches of Torremolinos or walk the marinas of affluent Marbella, Puerto Banus and Benalmadena all year round. Just remember – "No carbs before Marbs."

Costa Blanca

In the province of Alicante in the south east of the country, Costa Blanca is home to tourist classics like Benidorm, Alicante and Dénia. This coastline has been a British hotspot for decades, and for good reason, considering its reliable weather, immaculate beaches and lively nightlife.
