Spain holiday FAQs

Make the most of your Spain holiday

Discover the unique charm of Spain. This culturally rich country has so much to offer – explore historic sites, visit world-famous art galleries and savour mouth-watering cuisine.

Where are the best beaches in Spain?

Spain's coastline spans more than 3,000 miles. Here, you'll discover some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Along Marbella’s ‘Golden Mile', Playa Nagueles attracts celebrities and spotters alike. In Ibiza, Cala Jondal is one of the most scenic spots on the island - from secluded clifftops you'll overlook pebbled beaches, lined with olive trees, and turquoise waters sprinkled with fishing boats. Playa de la Tejita is Tenerife's longest beach, nestled between the picturesque Montana Roja and Los Abrigos fishing village. Its quiet location is ideal for nature lovers and water sport enthusiasts. Even the seaside city of Barcelona boasts a spectacular beachfront and it prides itself on being a year-round destination.

What are the best things to do in Spain?

1. Take a trip to Museo Nacional del Prado and see some of the world’s most impressive renaissance and baroque masterpieces.

2. Be inspired by the unique multi-coloured contemporary sculptures and architecture at Park Guell.

3. Rent a boat at El Retiro Park – it’s the perfect picnic spot to take in the city’s sights.

4. Experience both wildlife and the wild nightlife at a live music festival in Ibiza.

5. Step back in time at Spain’s famous palace of the Muslim kings of Granada, in Alhambra.

Ibiza

Where are the best places to visit in Spain?

Barcelona

No trip to Spain would be complete without admiring the distinguished displays from architect Antoni Gaudi. The most impressive of which is La Sagrada Familia, a magnificent gothic cathedral towering above the city. Las Ramblas also puts on a show, with its street performers and tasty tapas at La Boqueria – Barcelona’s oldest market.

Madrid

Madrid is a must for all those wanting to experience urban Spanish life. The artistic capital is packed with vitality, where the Madrilenos are known as gatos (cats), for their tendency to enjoy late nights. So, if you’re looking for excellent nightlife, Madrid is the perfect city for you. It is also regarded as one of the best culinary spots, housing some of the most fabulous restaurants in the world.

Ibiza

Although Ibiza is renowned for its party island credentials, there is more to this charming island than meets the eye. Discover hidden gems – from extraordinary beaches to luxurious boutique hotels, overlooking cryptic sea caves and boasting stunning sunsets beyond the Mediterranean coast.

Tenerife

The largest of Spain’s Canary Islands and arguably the warmest of all the regions in Spain – Tenerife benefits from a subtropical climate and offers consistently warm temperatures year-round. Take a hike or better still, venture out in a cable car to wonder at the popular attraction Mount Teide National Park volcano; a UNESCO World Heritage site with the highest mountain peak in Spain.

What is Spain famous for?

The Spanish are relaxed and hospitable people – renowned for their traditional siestas, which provide an ideal time to slow down and appreciate the smaller things in life. Many come to Spain in search of the tastiest paella and to sample traditional tapas and jamon. There is an abundance of artistic influences such as Picasso, Dali and Gaudi, expressed through the country’s architectural designs. Spain is blessed with some of the best sandy Mediterranean beaches, plus Spanish festivals, like Tomatina, which embody authentic Spanish heritage. Fancy yourself as a flamboyant Flamenco dancer? Watch from afar or join in – it’s an integral part of Spanish tradition after all.

What is the weather in Spain like?

The weather in Spain is more varied than you'd think. If you're near the Atlantic coast it may be cooler, humid and rainy. As you go inland the climate is more arid, with relatively cold winters and often very hot summers. The southern and eastern coastal regions, such as Barcelona, the Balearic Islands, Valencia and Málaga, have a more typical Mediterranean climate with mild temperatures and sunny forecasts. While places like the Canary Islands experience an African climate, mild in winter and very hot in summer. In the mountainous regions of the Pyrenees and the Sierras, temperatures differ depending on altitude.

The Canary Islands

Seven beautiful volcanic islands just off the coast of North Africa make up the Canary Islands – and you can fly to three of them with British Airways. They share a heap of sunny beaches, but adventurous types can also enjoy countless activities. Learn about Gran Canaria’s brilliant hiking opportunities, head to Lanzarote for underwater safaris and make the most of the spectacular scenery in Tenerife. The Canary Islands get great weather all year round, and are sunny and warm throughout the seasons.

Skiing in Spain

Spain is home to some 1000 kilometres of pistes, and when you add to this mild, sunny weather and small family-friendly resorts you have a perfect ski holiday.

Most of the bigger resorts are in the Pyrenees, with many peaks above 3000 metres creating a snow-sure region for ski fans.

Baqueira-Beret

Sometimes considered the best resort in the world, Baqueira-Beret offers superb skiing, world-class lifts and some serious après ski. Unlike in France and Austria, you’ll find very few people on the first lifts, relatively quiet pistes and a late-night restaurant scene. Best suited for intermediate and skilled skiers, you’ll find some difficult long reds and even some narrow, steep blacks at Cap de Baqueira. The resort itself is purpose-built in the 60s, and as such is not as picturesque as certain other resorts, but it more than makes up for this with its superb skiing and laid-back atmosphere off the mountain.
