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 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.
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.
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.
