Great Places to Visit

Whether you want to sink some sangria at a poolside bar before hitting the beach, shop till you drop or discover ancient history, Spain has it all.

Discover Brilliant Beaches

Spain’s popularity as a tourist destination is mainly due to the fact that this big country is blessed with such beautiful beaches. On the Costa Brava, Costa Del Sol and Costa Blanca you’ll find great beaches in big name resorts like Benidorm and Torremolinos, as well as lesser-known off the beaten track seaside hideaways.

Sample City Life

Some of Spain’s finest cities, like Malaga, Alicante and Barcelona, share their buzz with the fantastic beaches on their doorstep, alongside great options for eating, drinking, shopping and sightseeing. Inland, Madrid, Seville and Granada are all exciting destinations where you can see a new side to this diverse country.

Choose Mainland or Island

As well as its stunning Costas, Spain offers us a dazzling choice of islands where we can spend our precious fortnight in the sun. From the hedonism of Ibiza to the slower, more laidback charm of Menorca, there’s an island to suit all in Spain. And don’t forget the even hotter Canary Islands are Spanish territory too.

Experience Spanish Nights

Whether your idea of a good night out is partying in a superclub in Ibiza, sinking a jug of sangria as you watch the footie in Benidorm, sampling the tapas in Barcelona or discovering delicious new wines and local delicacies in a local restaurant on the Costa de la Luz, Spain has it covered, with lots more besides.

Getting Around

With its purpose built resorts, good roads and widely spoken English, Spain is an easy country for tourists to navigate. Unless you’re planning to stick to a single resort, car hire is by far the most popular option for British tourists in Spain, with most opting to collect their car at the airport for easy transfers. If not, public transport, taxis and organised tours are widely available.

By Bus

Spain has many different bus operators but all bus routes in this big country lead back to Madrid, or failing that, Barcelona. On a more local scale, most towns and resorts have a good, reliable service.

By Car

You’ll be in good company with the other British tourists driving to the sun from the airport. As long as you remember to drive on the right, in general you should find the Spanish roads easy to use.
