Holidays in Spain

There are a huge number of beach activities and water sports to enjoy, or simply spend hours soaking up the sun on the golden sand. As the sun goes down, Spain comes to life with holidaymakers tucking into huge pans of steaming paella, washed down by jugs of sangria. Bars and clubs lining the moonlit streets will help you to party the night away, with riotous fiestas setting the country alight during its many festivals. If you’re seeking an island castaway though, go for Balearic summer holidays in Spain.

Valencia is located on the eastern coast of Spain, along the Mediterranean Sea and part of the sun-blessed Costa del Azahar region famous for its beaches and orange plantations (“azahar” translates into “orange blossom”).

The waterflow has been diverted away from the city center due to serious floods, so the dry riverbed has been wonderfully recycled into the Jardines del Turia with a variety of leisure uses: gardens, soccer pitches, playgrounds.

Avenue Mediteraneo Benidorm has to import sand from Morocco to maintain its beaches. This little gem originated when a tour rep made a joke to his clients while on the coach bringing them from Alicante Airport to their hotel in Benidorm in the early 70s.

Head for fun, sun and sizzling nightlife in Tenerife where you can take a cable car to the top of towering Mount Teide. Visit the sweeping beaches of Gran Canaria and pop to the capital Las Palmas, to get cultured up. Lanzarote island will charm the flip-flops off you and no trip here’s complete without seeing Timanfaya National Park, a huge area of dormant volcanoes.
