Sunny Spain is amongst the most visited tourist destinations in Europe and if you happen to go or at least look it up on Google you will definitely have a lot of reasons to visit instantly! Booking holidays in Spain however can be baffling, as the multitude of resorts and settings to choose from could make up for an endless holiday in themselves. Here we have compiled 5 of the best seaside resorts throughout the Iberian Peninsula and its islands to consider, if you’re planning for some fun under the Spanish sun on your next holiday!
A great alternative to packed tourist resorts, cheap ‘british pubs’ and horrible touristy spots, Asturias is a great combination of seaside and mountain views guaranteed to please the senses! Book your holidays in Spain around Picos de Europa and explore the rocky coves, golden beaches and laidback beach towns. For surfers, the wave breaks around the area provide you with great spots to surf while the sun is shining as always. If you are an outdoors enthusiast instead, the nearby mountains offer a great variety of paths to walk or cycle on and explore the countryside.
The Cantabrian country certainly has loads to offer and its stunning views are well complemented by one of the best combinations of sea and mountain views in Spain! If you happen to stay in Langre during your holidays in Spain, you are guaranteed to take in the views of a lifetime. Home to tranquil golden stretches of sand amongst its shores and great peaks and parks to explore, Langria is a natural wonder. If you fancy partying, the nearby capital city of Santander is a lively place full of things to see and do if you ever get tired of enjoying the Spanish nature and sunshine.
Playa Del Ingles
Of course we could not leave our guide without a reference to the Canary Islands! The Playa Del Ingles in Gran Canaria is a name often heard amongst people who have been on the island and who could blame them! Playing host to an almost endless golden beach stretching up to seven miles and ending on glowing sand dunes, this place has always been amongst the favourites of sun seekers throughout Europe. The area has lots of resorts nearby, thus providing you with a wide variety of options of Gran Canaria hotels to choose from.
Majorca is a well-established sunny sensation and this beach resort is one of the quietest and most beautiful the island has to offer! If you are considering holidays in Spain and more specifically in Majorca in order to unwind, this one definitely deserves a look. Far from the touristy madness of Palma and Magaluf, this quiet resort is adorned with a pale sandy beach framed by pine forests which used to be a drop off point for smugglers. Nowadays the sometimes choppy sea will provide you with enough wind and waves to kitesurf and the few chosen resorts around the area provide excellent rooms with ample space and great views.
Arguably one of the best beaches the Balearic Islands have to offer, Es Pujols is a tropical paradise on the small island of Formentera. Home to calm, clear waters and fine white sand, this beach is amongst the most serious contenders of our list and fairly so! Formentera is a great destination for anyone looking for a sunny getaway to a great beachside, so we highly recommend it. The island’s close proximity to Ibiza provides for the party crowd and the shallow waters are friendly to small children and inexperienced swimmers in general. The amenities on offer are numerous and if you book your holidays in Spain off-season in general you can keep it low cost too.
