Spain has long since been a favorite of British holiday makers, who come to take advantage of the fantastic weather and the beautiful beaches on offer. In particular, the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca have been perennial big-hitters for holidaymakers looking for a relaxed holiday experience amidst stunning surroundings. For those looking for a more family friendly Spain holiday, you may consider taking a trip to the Costa del Sol in the south of the country. There you will find many smaller islands, most of which are not often open to visitors, but they make great holiday resorts if you are able to fit in a little sun!
Another popular holiday destination in Spain is Barcelona, which is now even more popular than it was prior to the recent economic downturn. With a range of different types of accommodation available from large theme parks to boutique hotels, there is something for everyone in Barcelona. However, the best area to stay in Spain for a holiday is undoubtedly the Costa del Sol, especially if you are planning to spend the majority of your time on the island of Ibiza. Holidaymakers coming to Spain for the first time may find the Costa del Sol a little daunting, but those who have stayed here before know that this part of Spain offers great shopping opportunities, some of the best nightclubs in the country and an all year round sunshine.
For those who are looking for a more tranquil and laid back Spain holiday, then perhaps the region of Galicia is the right choice. Home to Galicia’s beautiful villages and towns, this area has all the charms of Spain, but with a more relaxed atmosphere. One of the best things about choosing a holiday destination in Galicia is the fact that the majority of its villages and towns are within an hour or so of the main city of Madrid. As well as being home to some beautiful sandy beaches, this part of Spain also offers great shopping opportunities, with a good selection of designer boutiques and other independent stores.
