Mountains, cliffs and beaches

The combination of the long stunning coastline and the idyllic annual climate is what created Spain's reputation as a perfect holiday destination. While the country has changed a lot since the tourism boom, those two things that started it all has remained just as phenomenal as they were 60 years ago.

Whichever coastal resort you choose, you're guaranteed a beautiful beach to lay out on, whether it's a long sweeping stretch by the open ocean or a secluded spot in a cliffed cove. The towns that were once fishing villages now offer wonderful harbour and marina areas to wander through and dine at.

Spain is a rocky country and more often than not, behind your resort will be miles upon miles of massive mountains. You're invited to explore through a number of different adventure tours or you can even stay in some village resorts based within the mountains of Costa Del Sol.

The Spanish Miracle

There are many historic sites to see throughout Spain that have been built, destroyed and preserved over many centuries. The castle of Tossa de Mar, the streets of Sitges and Nerja's aqueduct are just some of the impressive structures that can still be enjoyed today.

Since then the Spanish Miracle has occurred. This refers to the time between 1959-74 when the country received massive economic growth thanks to the tourism boom. Ever since then Spain has been more than welcoming to visitors from all over the world. The Spanish people are full of passion and charm, and hospitality is a long-standing tradition so you'll be welcomed by locals with open arms.

Waterparks, theme park and zoos

Since tourism is such a thriving industry throughout the Costas in Spain you can be sure that wherever you choose to visit, there will be an exciting tourist attraction not too far away. Waterparks are found all over with more than a couple Aqualands to enjoy while many others feature theme parks of various themes.

The most sought after family attraction by Spanish people and the rest of Europe is the massive Portaventura theme park and resort complex in Costa Dorada.

Exciting nightlife

Spanish nightlife is as versatile as you need it to be with as many opportunities to enjoy a quiet evening underneath the stars as there are lively nightclubs to go wild in.

Some of the popular hotspots for party animals on Spain holidays include the extravagant offering of luxurious Marbella, the cabaret and risqué performances found in the British favourite Benidorm, and the drag shows and nightclubs of the LGBT favourite Sitges.

Spanish favourites

From huge pans of paella to tantalising tapas, Spanish food is unique and best accompanied by a gulp of sangria. Because the Spaniards take an afternoon siesta each day, they eat much later on an evening. You shouldn't be surprised to see restaurants opening as late as 9:00pm but through the day there are also plenty of terrific cafes to enjoy a coffee, snack or an ice cream in.

It's not all local cuisine on offer as the majority of resorts cater for tourists' tastes with a fine selection of international flavour on offer. The sheer amount of restaurants in any given resort means there is usually a meal that suites every guest's preference and wallet.

Getting there

Flight time from the UK to Spain takes between two to three and a half hours depending on where you are flying from and to. All of the destinations are usually well placed by an airport which means transfer times to your resort are usually relatively short.

Hiring a car to get around resorts is made easy by Spain's widespread motorway system.

Costa Brava, Costa Del Sol and Costa Dorada all benefit from Spain's rail network. Many resorts in these regions feature train stations that run regularly towards the nearest large city.

Best time of year to visit

This country's annual climate is consistently alluring and holidays to Spain can be enjoyed at almost any time of the year. The summers always offer clear skies and temperatures that often soar past 30C.

The only difference between the northern regions and the southern is that the lower half of the country enjoys warmer winters. There is also less chance of rain in the south during the quieter tourism months.

Fiestas are a regular occurrence from the February Carnival to the summer music festivals, there is always some sort of celebration happening in any given resort in Spain.
