Sick of having to take two flights for a holiday? With direct flights from as little as £60 return, you can easily enjoy the best of what Spain has to offer direct from Belfast.
Barcelona as a city has so much to see that you can visit every year and still not see it all. Despite not being the country’s capital, Barcelona is probably the first city people think of when they think of Spain. The many reasons for this include the awesome Gaudi architecture, the hip but not hipster cool of La Rambla and, most of all, one of the most successful football clubs in history.
Barcelona also offers easy access to some of the beautiful beaches on the Costa Brava and the well-hidden town of L’Estartit which, thanks to its off-shore islands being a designated nature reserve, offers perhaps the best SCUBA diving in the Med.
Mallorca is the largest and most popular of the Balearic Islands, offering plenty for everyone to enjoy. Though famed for its bustling, popular resorts, such as Magaluf, Majorca has a wide range of museums and plenty of scenery to explore. The city of Palma itself has a great cultural sophistication and is home to many chic boutiques and hip bars and eateries.
Known by most people as ‘the place you fly to for the Costa del Sol’, Málaga is certainly a gateway to some of the best known resorts such as Torremolinos, Benalmádena and Marbella. The city itself, however, has plenty to offer those who are looking for more than a Full English Breakfast, Carling and 8 hours lying in the sun!
One of the oldest cities in Europe, Málaga has plenty of historical sites such as the Phoenecian walls and museums for everyone to explore. Further afield you can find Granada with its beautiful Moorish Alhambra and just an hour’s drive away you can visit the British territory of Gibraltar.
Beautiful soft sandy beaches offering guaranteed sunshine all year round make Tenerife one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. The nightlife is legendary – though not always for the right reasons – and food and drink are affordable and plentiful. Offering plenty, too, for the sightseer – such as beautiful volcanic landscapes to explore – Tenerife has something for everyone.
Perfectly situated on the Costa Blanca, the city of Alicante, once an important Mediterranean port, offers everything the holidaymaker could need. From the castle of Santa Barbara on top of the mountain overlooking the city down to the port itself, now a prime destination for many Mediterranean cruises, Alicante lets you combine a city break and beach holiday into one trip!
If all of that’s not enough, Alicante also opens up a huge swathe of Spanish delights. From perhaps the best known Spanish resort of Benidorm, to the city of Valencia, a flight to Alicante gives you access to the best of beaches and sightseeing that the South-East of Spain has to offer.
Even though you can only fly direct to five of Spain’s cities, Northern Ireland is certainly connected to the best that the country has to offer.
