Sea and Sand with Sunshine
Peaceful and picturesque and at the same time vibrant with omnipresent positive energy, Spain’s shoreline resorts and towns, whether located on the mainland or on its many islands, have long preserved their status as some of the best appreciated tourist destinations on the globe.
Perfect weather, well tended beaches, quality accommodation and affordability have drawn many British holiday makers to the carefree atmosphere of towns such as Alicante, Almeria or Palma de Mallorca. The coastal areas of mainland Spain are strongly oriented towards tourism, particularly the eastern and southern shores, which enjoy an auspicious semiarid or Mediterranean climate.
One of the best known areas for leisure tourism is Costa del Sol, in the province of Malaga, home to many loved destinations such as Marbella, Fuengirola and Casares.
A number of towns such as Benidorm were purposely developed towards accommodating European tourists, particularly of British, Dutch or German origin, who are drawn to the specific character of a strongly Latinised country.
Besides Costa del Sol, you can also plan an equally charming escapade to Costa Blanca, Costa Tropical, Costa Brava, Costa Calida or Costa de la Luz. Accommodation is cleverly diverse in terms of prices, making these areas key locations for individual as well as business tourism.
Many of Spain’s islands, naturally blessed with splendid sceneries and a semi-arid climate, are packed with foreign visitors all year round. With a broad range of locations to choose from, such as the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea (including Mallorca, Minorca and Ibiza) or the Canary Islands, located in close proximity of Morocco, returns to this warm and highly animated corner of the world are nearly guaranteed.
Visitors can enrich their cultural understanding of these regions by delving into their entrancing history, and at the same time enjoy the pulsating, metropolitan nightlife westerners usually seek in a holiday destination.
