Spain holidays 2013...
Spain is as sultry as the flamenco, as spicy as the chilli, as relaxing as a siesta and as vibrant as a fiesta - and hot. Always hot. Whether you're looking for culture, history, sandy beaches, great food or all-night clubbing, Spain holidays have it all.
Beach escapes, city breaks & cultural escapades...
Spain is the leading Mediterranean beach break destination. Stretching for nearly 2,000km from the border with the Algarve to the border with France, and blessed with eternal sunshine, the south and east coasts boast some of the finest beaches in the world. Long and broad golden swathes, tranquil sheltered bays, all-action party beaches, hidden coves and wild and rocky expanses; Spain holidays offer the full range of beach break bliss.
Although the blazing sunshine and golden sands are a major part of the allure of this nation, Spain is far more than just a beach destination. This is a multi-layered country that offers a wealth of unforgettable experiences to its visitors - from rustic whitewashed villages to dazzling cutting-edge metropolises and wild mountains to ancient towns awash with Moorish and Gothic architecture.
With bargain late deals and top offers on accommodation - ranging from self-catering apartments to luxury all inclusive resorts - in destinations all over Spain, book with MyTravel.com to find your perfect beach holiday!
Holidays to the Spanish Costas...
The Costa del Sol - bathed in sunshine for 320 days or more per year - is the first name on everyone's lips when thinking of a well-earned Mediterranean escape. A wonderful golden sandy getaway, the Costa del Sol is an old hand at hosting beach breaks and is perfect for family holidays, romantic escapes and lively breaks for groups.
Glitzy Marbella is among the best loved beach holiday destinations in Spain. A laid-back, fashionable joy of a resort, where you can enjoy seafood paella and a glass of rioja at the marina before hitting the designer boutiques and the clubs! If you're looking for a fun family holiday in Spain, Torremolinos is hard to beat; it offers endless activities for all ages, water parks, theme parks, water sports, six perfect palm-lined beaches and much more!
Costa Blanca - named after the sun bleached white sands of its sublime beaches - is Mediterranean beach break par excellence. Its leading light, Benidorm, is the largest holiday resort in Europe and simply has it all - two of the best beaches in Spain (Blue Flag-awarded Levante and Poniente), theme parks, aquariums, water parks, 24/7 nightlife and that is barely scratching the surface! For fun-packed family holidays in Spain - accept no substitute!
Farther north is Costa Dorada, 200km plus of radiant golden sunshine that reaches along the east coast of Spain. The long, wide sandy beaches shelve gently into the sparkling Balearic Sea, making it ideal for families; many of whom head to action-packed Salou, where you'll find the awesome PortAventura theme park - one of the best in Europe!
The mostly northerly of all the 'Costas' is the 'Wild Coast', Costa Brava, a breathtaking stretch of shoreline consisting of rocky cliffs, sweeping bays, hidden coves and inlets, and huge expanses of peaceful sandy beach. If you fancy something a little more rugged than the southern resorts, this is the place to go!
Holidays to the Spanish Islands...
Few places can match the islands of Spain for beach holiday paradise. The rugged and volcanic Canary Islands enjoy a prime spot off the west coast of Morocco and enjoy plenty of year-round-sunshine, ideal for a last minute break or off-peak holiday. Popular with families, couples and groups of friends alike, this gorgeous cluster of islands has long been the beach holiday destination of choice for British holidaymakers.
Alternatively, stay in the Mediterranean sun by enjoying a beach break in the beautiful Balearic Islands. The small, blissful island of Menorca is perfect for a relaxing holiday in Spain and is home to more beaches than its sister islands put together! On the other hand, gorgeous Majorca with its 30 Blue-Flag standard beaches offers masses of fun and things to do for all ages. Idyllic Ibiza - enjoying buckets of sunrays and famous hippy-chic - hardly needs mentioning; it is the clubbing capital of the known-universe and unmatched for a rave in the sunshine!
City breaks in Spain...
Far from just a beach destination, however, holidays to Spain offer the chance to explore some of Europe's most vibrant cities. Madrid is a sizzling, sultry capital city with three of the most celebrated museums in the world, exquisite dining and a buzzing, fashionable nightlife. Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is the ultimate city break destination for many. From Gothic to Gaudi, the architecture in Barcelona is stunning; the long beach has golden sands; the nightlife dazzles and the shopping is world class. From the Nou Camp to La Boqueria Market, this is a city that never fails to impress. History enthusiasts will love the sun kissed Moorish-influenced city of Seville.
