Splendid beaches, delicious cuisine, vibrant nightlife and lively fiestas all make a Holiday to Spain one of Europe’s best getaways and it’s no surprise that after nearly 50 years of mass tourism, Spain remains the favourite destination for UK holidaymakers. Because Spain encompasses several autonomous regions and islands, the country boasts one of the most widely diverse cultures and landscapes on the continent.
UK visitors have been hitting the beaches of Spain in huge numbers since the early 1970’s, enjoying the fabulous sunshine, great food and wonderfully friendly people. The beach resorts are still visited by millions each year, but the vibrant cities have become almost as popular due to a large number of direct flights.
Spain may be considered by many as very familiar, but each region of this varied country offers the visitor something different. From the snow capped peaks of the Pyrenees to the sun-kissed beaches of the Costa Del Sol, Spain is brimming with Moorish fortresses, Romanesque and gothic churches and Renaissance palaces, all of which reflect the diversity of its culture and history. From sizzling cuisine and riotous fiestas to contemporary art, age-old museums and a fabulous beach-culture, Spain sure pack a punch. So whether you are a culture vulture, history buff or beach bum, it’s almost inevitable that with Spain, it’ll be love at first sight.

When to go?
Spain has surprisingly different weather depending on where you go. The North & North West of the country are cooled by the Atlantic Ocean so the summer is pleasant without getting too hot. Winters here are cool. Inland has cool winters but scorching hot summers. The South of the country has hot summers and warm winters, and the East Coast have hot summers and mild winters. For beach lovers, the summer months are best of course, and the resorts get very busy particularly in school holidays. Sightseeing is best done in Spring and Autumn.
