With miles and miles of beaches, plenty of colourful cities and fun-filled waterparks galore, Spain holidays have something for everyone. You’ll find year-round sunshine just a short flight away from the UK, whether you’re heading for bustling mainland Spain or the gorgeous islands off the coast. When you arrive on your holidays to Spain, you’ll discover a country brimming with charm, from the mountain villages and Moorish castles to the bustling resorts and delightful tapas restaurants.

Things to do

When it comes to things to do on Spanish holidays, you’ll be spoilt for choice. In the country’s many beach resorts, you won’t be able to resist lounging around on the sand, soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine. And if you feel like picking up the pace, you could always try your hand at water sports; you’ll find plenty going on in places like Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca or Costa del Almeria in mainland Spain. But Spain has so much to offer beyond the coastline. It’s absolutely brimming with incredible landscapes, from Lanzarote’s volcanic peaks to Menorca’s lush wetlands. When it comes to keeping the kids happy, you’ll find a great choice of fun-filled waterparks that they’ll just love. 

Where to stay

With a fantastic range of beaches, many Blue Flag awarded, you can see why this country attracts beach lovers, year after year. 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's become a tradition to watch the spectacular sunsets.
