- Spain Luxury holidays
Britain's love affair with Spain is one of the great tourism relationships of the world, with millions of Britons having headed to the Costas or the Spanish islands at one time or another. From the iconic Costa del Sol, the coast of the sun, with its baked beaches and gently crashing waves, to the individual personalities of each of the Balearic Islands and the Canaries several hours south off the African coastline, the country's territories cater for all tastes in an enviable climate that should leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and tanned.
A city break in Spain
While it's easy to think of Spain as a beach holiday destination and nothing else, it is of course one of Europe's celebrated locations for city breaks, in particular visits to Barcelona. With its unique architecture and large number of sights in a fairly small area, the city is a firm favourite among cultural tourists, including many Millennial travellers. Spain's second-largest city hosted the 1992 Summer Olympic Games, and its architecture - notably the work of Antoni Gaudi - has earned it the title of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Enjoy the Spanish island lifestyle
If the mainland of Spain doesn't appeal to you, whether for a city break or a beach holiday, then the many islands should have something to offer. The Balearics are the classic family destination, thanks to Majorca's beaches and Minorca's quiet tourist-friendly resorts, while Ibiza caters for families and for young people seeking a party atmosphere too. Head to the Canary Islands for a more mature break, well worth the longer journey time to reach the archipelago, and don't forget to sample the local honey rum while you are there.
When should I visit Spain?
It depends where you're going. In general the summer season is the peak time to visit Spain, with temperatures rising from June into July and August, but certain other locations within the country are worth considering at other times of year too. For instance, Minorca's festivals begin in the spring and are well worth heading to the Balearic Island for. Meanwhile, the more equatorial location of the Canary Islands makes them an excellent option for an out of season break, for example if you are seeking some sunshine and warmth during the spring or autumn months.
