Holidays in Spain: Europe’s Ideal Summer Destination

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Dec. 13, 2010) – Winter has arrived in the UK and British holidaymakers may be contemplating leaving the cold British shores to enjoy a sun filled beach holiday abroad. As usual, Spain will be a popular destination, and with good reason.

Holidays in Spain give visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in one of the most vibrant and lively cultures in the world. Whether it’s the Andalusian coast, the wild shorelines of western Spain or the resorts and villages of the Costa Blanca, Spain offers something for everyone.

Andalusia is home to two of the great Moorish cities, Granada and Alhambra. Their milky white beaches, azure oceans and the unique atmosphere of this popular region make it an essential stop during any holiday visit to Spain.

The western coast of Spain is where travellers will find the Costa de la Luz as well as the unspoilt, traditional Andalusia of years gone by. There are a number of annual festivals in the region that celebrate everything from its gypsy heritage to the dominant religions. Punta Umbria is the best destination for visitors looking to relax and experience the area’s renowned fauna and flora.

The Costa Blanca is famous for its spectacular beaches and the tourist resorts that line the coast. Benidorm is one of the more famous towns along the coast. The city’s bustling metropolis is set near the spectacular Puig Campana, one of Costa Blanca’s impressive mountains, and offers travellers ample urban, cultural and outdoor activities to pass the time on their holidays in Spain.

All of these destinations hold their own unique appeal, but the liveliest of the Spanish costas is without a doubt the Costa del Sol. Its sandy beaches, golf courses, mountain ranges and quaint villages provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable Spanish holiday.
