Spain’s Best Beaches
Spain, one of the oldest and most beautiful countries in Europe, has a rich and diverse history. The heritage, stunning scenery and vibrant culture are three of the driving forces behind thousands of people who visit Spain every year. With the ease of travel between European countries since the formation of the European Union, it has become even easier and more convenient for travelers to make their way to Spain after visiting other countries in the area. With that in mind, what better way to escape winter’s icy grip than by planning a tropical getaway to one of Spain’s best beaches?
In addition to unrivaled access to some of Europe’s most breathtaking beaches, traveling to Spain will introduce you to one of the most unique and awe-inspiring countries in the world. Continue reading for more advice on finding Spain’s best beaches.
Finding the Perfect Stretch of Sand in Spain
Even though Spain does reside between Portugal and France, the majority of the country borders water. This means that Spain has expanses of coastline and a myriad of beaches to choose from. In fact, Spain has some of the most beautiful beaches and coasts in the entire world! So how do you go about determining which of Spain’s beaches are the very best?
Kemwel has put together a brief list of Spain’s best beaches:
- Las Canteras – A beach located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the ninth largest city in Spain. This is a beautiful 2.8 kilometer long stretch of beach which features surfing and fun right next to a major urban center.
- La Playa de la Arena – A system of dunes running between Zierbana and Miskiz, this is a beautiful and environmentally friendly beach. This beach is best saved for people who love out of the way attractions or who are looking for a bit of privacy in the comfort of Mother Nature. It is definitely not one of the most well-known destinations.
- La Concha – A beach located in San Sebastian, this is easily one of the best looking beaches in the country. The beach has a natural curve to it which takes in and reflects sunlight and, in certain weather conditions, presents onlookers with a beautiful mist. The city located beside the beach, San Sebastian, is a cultural and culinary hotspot as well.
- Illas Cies – Located in Galicia, this trio of islands is located in the northwestern region of Spain. On the inland side of the island are beautiful beaches with white sands, pristine water, and a number of attractions for visitors. Illas Cies has a little bit of something for everyone!
- Playa de Bolonia – This area of Tarifa is home to some of the most popular beaches in the country. It is nearly impossible to find a spot that has not been used heavily by tourists in this area. With that being said, if you are willing to go as far as Bolonia, a small fishing village in Tarifa, then you will find one of the most secluded beaches in the country. A bonus for anyone interested in history is the fact that the ancient ruins of Baelo Claudio are right beside the beach
