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 has become a tradition to watch the spectacular sunsets.

The volcanic peaks of the Canary Islands are some of the most breathtaking natural attractions in Spain. Visit Tenerife and take the cable car that leads you to the top of Spain’s highest mountain, Mount Teide. Explore the bubbling lava fields of Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park, one of the best places in Spain to feel the volcanic heat. The lush wetlands of Menorca make up the heart of this UNESCO biosphere reserve. Discover one of the most dramatic places in Spain on a drive through the magnificent mountain range of Majorca’s Serra de Tramuntana.

The huge number and fantastic variety of waterparks means there’s plenty of things for kids to do in Spain. Let them whoosh down the Big Bang in Aqualandia in Benidorm, the highest water chute in Europe. Just next door is the Mundomar marine park, where swimming with sea lions is one of the most exciting things for kids to do in Spain. Children and grown-ups alike will be dazzled by the swashbuckling shows at Pirates Adventure in Majorca. Treat the kids to cowboy shows in Gran Canaria’s Sioux City, one of the best places in Spain to taste the Wild West.

Try a chilled glass of sparkling cava or a dry fino sherry with your Barcelona tapas of spicy Padrón peppers and luscious serrano ham. Valencia is the home of paella, where they make the famous saffron-flavoured rice dish with meat and vegetables rather than seafood. Beachside restaurants in Málaga are the best places to go in Spain for a plate of fritura malagueña – delicately fried morsels of fish. Savour the rich flavours of Menorca’s lobster stew, caldereta de langosta or visit Lanzarote’s lunar-like vineyards for a tasting of Malvasía and Moscatel vintages.
