Which Costa are you?

Four beautiful coastlines, with four unique personalities. Find your perfect beach holiday with our guide to Spain’s famous Costas.

Costa del Sol - for sun

The clue’s in the name with the Costa del Sol. This stretch of Malaga coastline has long been a favourite with sun-seeking holidaymakers, offering warm temperatures throughout the year. Resorts like Marbella and Torremolinos are famous for their beaches and nightlife, while the nearby region of Andalucia offers plenty of traditional Spanish charm.

Costa Blanca - for fun

Stretching over 200km, the Costa Blanca is home to some classic Spanish beach resorts, including Alicante and Benidorm. Around these towns you’ll find bars and nightlife, and themeparks and waterparks, making the Costa Blanca a great destination for family holidays. But if you fancy a bit of a change of pace, you could also check out the area’s more peaceful spots, like the Algar waterfalls and the picturesque town of Elche, or explore the historic sights of nearby Valencia.

Costa Dorada - for history

Just to the southwest of Barcelona, Costa Dorada (aka the Costa Daurada) translates as the Golden Coast, named after the area’s sparkling sandy beaches. In addition to welcoming resort towns like Salou and Cambrils, the Costa Dorada is also worth visiting for its historic sights, such as the Roman ruins of the city of Tarragona and the Les Ferreres Aqueduct. You’ll also be able to enjoy art and culture, bars, nightlife and thriving LGBTQ scenes in nearby Sitges and Barcelona.

Costa Brava - for scenery

Translating as the “Wild Coast”, the Costa Brava is found in the northeast of Spain, close to the French border and the Pyrenees. Stretching from Blanes to Barcelona, the Costa Brava has several buzzing resort towns, like Tossa de Mar and Lloret de Mar. However, it’s the area’s inspirational landscapes that are really worth checking out - such as the rugged coastlines of Cap de Creus and the Mede Islands and the blue waters of Aigua Blava - which captured the imaginations of artists like Dali and Picasso.

Popular destinations in Spain

Home to cultured cosmopolitan cities, such as Madrid and Barcelona, as well as mountainous terrain and pristine coastlines, Spain is the ultimate destination for families, couples, solo explorers and groups alike. Let's not forget Spain's stunning islands such as the Balearic and Canary Islands, which boast hundreds of hours of sunshine a year, electric nightlife and pristine beaches.

Sharing borders with France and Portugal, Spain is an ideal destination for ongoing travel around Europe. Its southern coastal peak points across the channel to Morocco and the ferry crossing to Tangier can be taken from several Spanish ports including Gibraltar and Barcelona.

 

Things to in Spain: History, beaches, food, parties and mucho mas!

For the more discerning traveller, Spain’s cities are filled to bursting with cultural and historic attractions. Marvel at Gaudí's spectacular Sagrada Família or take in the views from Parc Guell in Barcelona. Alternatively, visit the Guggenheim Gallery in the northern Basque city of Bilbao. Nip south to run with the bulls in the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona, or paint yourself tomato red at La Tomatina festival in Buñol near Valencia.

If getting out and about in nature is more your thing, then check out the glorious Costa Verde, boasting national parks, snow-capped mountain peaks and rushing rivers.

If it’s simple sun, sea and sand you’re after you won’t be disappointed as a holiday in Spain has it all, and more. An infinite number of white and yellow sand beaches line the coasts, while Spain’s Canary Islands offer the ultimate relaxation destinations. With black volcanic sands, endless blue skies and a whole host of activities and water sports to try, the likes of LanzaroteTenerifeFuerteventura and Gran Canaria won't leave you disappointed. Whether you want a relaxing spa break, a family-friendly hotel to explore a beautiful and captivating island, or a romantic getaway to share with that special someone, look no further than the Canaries.

Spanish cuisine

Sampling the local cuisine in Spain is no chore as the rich flavours of the country are exported and adored worldwide. The exquisite tapas of San Sebastián in the far north of the country, boasts an acclaimed reputation, while the Paella of the seaside towns is hard to beat. Sangria and red Rioja wines are a keen favourite while in the north the Spaniards have their very own special brew, sidra, to be found in the unique sidrerias of Asturias.

Looking for a party during your Spain holiday? Although most cities in Spain offer an excellent night scene, the infamous island of Ibiza is arguably THE party destination of Europe, where you can live a nocturnal lifestyle and still come home with a tan.
