Budget airlines and affordable fares have turned Spain into a sunny beach resort that is close to home. A haven for northern Europeans wishing to escape their own (sometimes) damp and dreary climates. With sun-bleached beaches it’s easy to see why it is such a popular choice for beach holiday in Europe. An incredible 53 million people visit each year and the country deserves its formidable reputation as a tourist haven.
Spain is comprised of numerous autonomous regions, offering great variation within one country. The hundreds of miles of Mediterranean coastline provide ample opportunity to get off the beaten track. The country’s vibrant cities and colourful festivals will amaze and delight even the most seasoned traveller. Art lovers can get lost in the Spain. With Gaudi, Dali, and Picasso, of Goya and Velazquez – proudly displayed in the country’s museums and galleries.
It is more than a travel destination – it’s a way of life. The country’s many attractions and the journeys between them are infused. With the warm welcome of the diverse people and the highly valued laid-back lifestyle that the Spaniards have perfected. Spanish holidays should be slow, with room for spontaneity and unexpected diversions. The wealth of things to see and do is such that the top attractions in Spain are whole cities, towns and islands. A single holiday can barely scratch the surface of what this country has to offer. It is best to plan an itinerary around a single city or region.
Spain ‘s Climate
Southern Spain is the ideal holiday region, having the warmest weather on mainland Europe, even during the winter months. The southern and eastern coast has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters, while the west Atlantic coast is cooler in summer and wet in winter. Inland the climate is temperate and the capital Madrid, which is situated on a plateau, can be surprisingly cold in winter. Most of the country is extremely hot during mid-summer, in July and August. The rest of the year the climate is generally temperate in the north, but warm in the south. The peak tourism season is summer, between June and August, with August the busiest month, but many people prefer to visit Spain during spring or autumn (May or October) when the weather is still pleasant and the crowds thinner.
