Holidays on the mainland are about the Costas; named the “Golden Coast”, this stretch of sandy beaches is drenched in sunshine. In the Canaries, you’ll find black volcanic sands in Lanzarote and Saharan shores in Gran Canaria, while in the Balearics, Menorca boasts secluded coves and Majorca enjoys sweeping bays. In Ibiza it has become a tradition to watch the spectacular sunsets.
