Have you ever felt you were in a special place, unlike anything you'd seen before? Did you want to capture that moment forever? There are places in the world that will enthral you because of their beauty, uniqueness and history. Places to visit at least once in a lifetime. In Spain there are several of such places, each more beautiful than the last. Here is a small selection. Many of these places are otherworldly. Take slow steps. Open your eyes wide.
Tenerife (Canary Islands) is a pretty exciting place. Magnificent beaches, a famous carnival, pleasant temperatures all year, and something less known but much more unusual. The volcanic nature of the island is waiting to be discovered on a trip into the origins of the land, the eruptions which brought Tenerife into existence. Reaching the summit of the Teide, the third highest volcano in the world, is a challenge worth facing when you’re 3,718 metres up, but it isn’t the only one. There are five less-known routes that you can follow on foot, by car or on a bicycle. This quest for the volcanic soul of Tenerife can be combined with visits to wineries, the island’s traditional flour mills, and even boat trips.
Spain has more biosphere reserves than any other country in the world
On holiday in Spain, you can enjoy nature with environmentally friendly activities and tourism. There are many protected natural spaces known for their sustainable tourism options.
Spain is a leading golf destination in Europe. Thousands of players choose it for its unbeatable conditions.
Going to the beach with small children is fun, but the most important thing is for it to be convenient. For there to be showers for cleaning off sand, toilets, access walkways, promenades, play areas, sports areas, a lifeguard service, etc. These are essential basics on many beaches in Spain. Among the different options Spain offers, this time we suggest visiting four destinations that are especially family-friendly: Alcossebre and Peñíscola (in the Region of Valencia), Mojácar (in Andalusia) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (in the Canary Islands). They also offer many other things apart from the beach to enjoy with your family.
Would you like to enjoy a holiday on the coast, but without the intense heat of the summer months? It's all possible in Spain. The Costa del Sol and the Cabo de Gata in Andalusia, the Canary Islands, and the Costa Blanca are all destinations where you’ll find a climate of eternal springtime practically all year round.
You'll find it perfectly possible to take a dip at the beach and then relax in the sun. Save space in your suitcase, and –even though you're coming in winter– leave your winter clothes in the cupboard, because the warm climate means you'll be able to travel light. Take a look at this list of places you should make a note of if you're coming to Spain between October and May.
