From the cool chic of La Rambla, through the incredible Gaudi architecture to the sandy beaches of the Costa Brava, Barcelona truly has something for everyone. Through daytime to nighttime and into the early hours, the city has museums, galleries, bars and clubs in plentiful supply, while the culinary options are second to none.
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!
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!
Gran Canaria is the biggest of the Canary Islands and is a popular destination for anyone seeking sun and sea. With hundreds of bars, restaurants and night clubs to choose from you can be sure to have a holiday to remember.
Even though it’s the capital of Spain, Madrid isn’t usually people’s first choice of city when they think of visiting the country. People who do, though, will find a wealth of amazing cultural sights as well as some of the best shopping and tapas the world has to offer.
One of the most beautiful Canary Islands, Lanzarote is worth a visit for anyone looking for year-round sun without the hordes of drunken teenagers. There are plenty of those, of course, as there are anywhere you find sun and sea, but Lanzarote offers a much more relaxed holiday experience.
Fuerteventura might be one of the lesser-visited of the Canary Islands but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth checking out. Its miles of coastline offer great opportunities for watersports – especially surfing – whilst it has more than enough cultural sites to keep everyone educated and entertained during the day.
No matter what you’re looking for from your Spanish holiday you’ll find it easily reachable in just a couple of hours from Scotland.
