Amazing Spanish Breakaways For Beach Lovers

Who doesn’t love a trip away to Spain? The wonderful climate, relaxed atmosphere and delicious food are all big draws for people all over the world. Plus, of course, it has some incredible beaches to enjoy, giving you the ultimate in relaxation, weather, and exciting activities.

But the big question is, if you are a beach lover or lounger, where is the best place for you to lay down your towel and experience golden sands and crystal clear waters? Let’s take a look at some of the best Spanish beaches right now.

Es Pujol in Formentera

The Balearics is a big draw for clubbers and ravers, of course, but look a little further afield from the bustling nightlife of Ibiza, and you will find a host of incredible beaches dotted through each of the islands. It’s hard to plump for a best Balearic beach, but Es Pujol in Formentera has to be up there. The sand is almost a brilliant white color, and the water is almost always calm and welcoming to swimmers. It’s a beautiful place that many people miss, so get out here now before the secret gets out.

Tamariu

Tamariu is on the Costa Brava and offers something a little more adventurous, as well as the traditional relaxing beach break away. It’s relatively quiet in comparison to much of the rest of the Costa Brava and offers visitors incredible sights. There are vast swathes of golden sands hemmed in by rocky coves and amazing coral out at sea. There is an untouched vibe about Tamariu, and it’s the perfect place for relaxation, exploration, or adventure.

Marbella

OK, so we all know that Marbella has a bit of a reputation for attracting rowdy crowds. But look beyond the glitz and (occasional) glamor of the local club scene, and there are beaches to suit everyone. Whether you want to relax in seclusion or get involved with exciting watersports, Marbella has it all.

Barcelona

There are plenty of cheap flights to Barcelona available from anywhere in the world – and for a good reason. It’s a hugely popular destination for art lovers, architectural interest, and, of course, is home to one of the greatest football teams in the world. But it’s also a beautiful paradise for beach lovers and features hundreds of miles of beautiful sands and calm, enticing sea. Given the bustling nature of the central city, Barcelona’s beaches are surprisingly unspoiled, and you don’t have to travel far to find a spot to claim for your own for a perfect day’s lounging.

Playa del Inglés

Gran Canaria is another popular Spanish destination, and if you are looking for a beach break away with a difference, you need to check out Playa del Ingles. It’s easy to see why this incredible place has been such a draw for hippy types since the 1960s, thanks to its laid-back atmosphere and vast stretches of impressive sand dunes. There are many little boutique hotels to try out, and almost everywhere you go in the seven miles of beachfront will be quiet, relaxing, and gorgeous to look at.

Travel Inspo: Wanderlust-Filled Weekends

If you love to travel, it may be tough for you to imagine a better way to spend a weekend than getting in the car or jumping on a plane and heading off for a short break. Travelling has so many benefits, and it’s a wonderful way to spend time with people you love. If you’re up for an adventure in the coming weeks or months, here are some wanderlust-filled weekends to get you thinking.

The Cultural Experience

If you love nothing more than touring museums, marvelling at masterpieces or immersing yourself in a different culture, there’s no better way to spend a weekend than booking a city break. Tailor your choice to your interests and passions. If you love history, head to Rome or Athens. If you’re a fan of art, discover the city of love, Paris or the Spanish capital, Madrid. If you’re keen to indulge your taste buds, make for Copenhagen or Bologna. Do some reading before you go, and draw up a rough itinerary, so you don’t miss anything.

The Nostalgic Retreat

If you’re looking for a date idea that’s guaranteed to impress, why not travel back in time and revisit some places that hold sentimental value? Book a bed and breakfast in Blackpool and lark around at the funfair like you did when you were teenagers. Go back to Central Park and relive the moment you got engaged. Make reservations at the hotel you visited on your first holiday together in Spain. Think about places that have special meaning to you, and try and make the break a surprise for added impact (and more Brownie points!)

The Stress-Free Beach Break

Sometimes, you just need to get away and do nothing for a few days. Even though we tend to spend a week or two at the beach, it is possible to get great deals on shorter seaside breaks. If you can stretch to 3 or 4 nights, the Balearic Islands are a fabulous option.

The Trendy City Break

If you’re a seasoned traveller, there’s every chance that you’ve ticked the big-hitters off your list. You may have been to Rome, Paris, Barcelona, and Amsterdam, so how about embracing new travel trends and going to some emerging destinations? This year, cities like Lisbon, Riga, Dubrovnik, Oslo, and Helsinki are making waves.

The Adventure Weekend

Adventure holidays are an excellent choice for those who want to experience something more than a sun bed and make the most of the surrounding environment. Hit the slopes in Verbier or Tignes or get your adrenaline pumping with a snowmobile safari in Iceland or Finland. Go hiking in Austria or get on your bike in the Yorkshire Dales.

Many of us live for the weekends. When you’re working hard, it’s always good to have something to look forward to, and if you’re a victim of wanderlust, there’s nothing better than the promise of a couple of days away at the end of a tiring week. If you’re a travel fan, hopefully, these ideas have given you some inspiration to celebrate the weekends in style.
