A real family favourite found at the core of the Costa Blanca. Alicante boasts outstanding nightlife, excellent waterfront cafes and bars, a charming and historic old quarter, and plenty of beaches on which to soak up the sunshine.

The Castillo de Santa Barbara, which dates back to the 16th century, is perched on Mount Benacantil. Take a trip up there for unrivalled coastal views.


A place which really needs no introduction.

Whether you're seeking a long weekend in a bustling city, or a few days by the beach, chances are Barcelona features high on your book-it list. There so much to see and do - from the iconic La Sagrada Familia to La Rambla.

Quite simply a fun city loaded with culture, awesome food and world-famous landmarks.


Featured Image - Fuertaventura

The second largest of the Canaries behind Tenerife, Fuerteventura is regarded as something of a paradise destination. The island itself is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, with a volcanic landscape and silky white sands.

Also popular among those who enjoy an active holiday, with pursuits such as hiking, golfing, surfing and snorkeling on the agenda of many.

Gran Canaria

An island with so much to offer we shouldn't be surprised that it's often a go-to destination. World class beaches can be found throughout, while the lush green mountains are perfect for those who love exploring.

The majestic Roque Nublo, a towering volcanic rock which is protected by UNESCO, is a real highlight and those who make it to the top are rewarded with some quite spectacular views of the Tejeda mountain. The old town of Las Palmas is also a must-visit when in Gran Canaria.


An island with pretty much everything. On one hand you've got the lively, buzzing nightlife (we all know nowhere does a party quite like Ibiza). On the other you've got fantastic walking routes and a gorgeous Old Town for those after a less high-octane experience.

From Cafe Mambo to the peaceful Cala Mastella beach, Ibiza has it all.

Without question one of the favourites among the Canaries. When you think Lanzarote you think stunning landscapes, outstanding beaches and year-round sunshine.

This place is the holiday destination of choice for many people.


Featured image - destinations - Madrid

A bustling city which radiates life and colour. Madrid's array of highly rated bars and restaurants are just the tonic for a city break, while the incredible art and historic architecture will leave you in awe.


Featured image - destination - Malaga

The heart of the Costa del Sol, and a majestic port city in its own right. Visit Malaga and you'll sample a vibrant mix of modern metropolis and renaissance architecture, and probably some Sangria!

Well worth spending some time exploring if you're planning a trip to the south of Spain.


It might be renowned for being the quietest and most tranquil of the Balearic Islands, but it's no less beautiful. If you're looking to go walking, or spend a few days relaxing on the beach, there are few places better for it.

Menorca also comes with a reputation for fantastic food.


Thinking of visiting Mallorca's sun-kissed capital?

There's much more to Palma than the nightlife - although the nightlife is world renowned. Perfect if you want to sample the relaxed atmosphere of life on the seaside, are keen to feast on some outstanding tapas, or simply want to switch off and recharge the batteries in relaxing surroundings.

The stunning Castell de Belver, a 14th century castle built on a wooded hillside, is among the several highlights.


Far, far more than just a gateway to the Costa Dorada.

Yes it's surrounded by, and provides easy access to, an array of gorgeous towns on the coast of Catalonia. However it's also a buzzing seaside city in its own right, and home to some magnificent architecture. Those who enjoy a glass of wine won't want to miss out on the local offering.


A city with real charm. The capital of Cantabria in Northern Spain, Santander is something of a hidden gem. Off the beaten track, if you like.

To say Santander is easy on the eye is an understatement. Its mountain landscape and white sand beaches make this a glorious place to spend some time.

Santiago de Compostela

Famed for many things - not least the mouth-watering food! Santiago de Compostela is the capital of the region of Galicia which combines the traditional and modern. Those who love visiting museums and delving deep into history are in luck, as are those who enjoy wine and fresh seafood.


Feature Image - Seville

Seville is the capital of the Andalusian region, and a city steeped in history.

Home to the world's largest Gothic cathedral, the remarkable Catedral de Santa María de la Sede will take your breath away. Another highlight is the UNESCO World Heritage listed Alcazar Real, or royal palace, which dates back more than 1,000 years.

A rich, vibrant city thriving with Spanish culture.


Home to Spain's tallest peak, the 12,000ft volcano El Teide. When on this volcanic island many visitors take the chance to venture to the top by cable car, enjoying unforgettable views over the islands of La Gomera, La Palma, and El Hierro in the Atlantic.

If you're into ancient towns, idyllic resorts, golden sands and the chance to explore on foot, Tenerife might be the one for you.


The place to go if you're after some authentic, world class paella. Popular opinion is that nowhere on the planet does it better.

Valencia is a city loaded with culture, excellent food and beautiful beaches. A city not to be missed.
