Sun, sea and beaches are, normally, what draw holiday makers to Spain as the warm Mediterranean climate is ideal for beach holidays in Spain. However, a good holiday also needs a bit of variety, some surprises and a taste of new experiences. Holidays in Spain can also mean lovely hiking trips and adventures among the mountains. The Pyrenees Mountains are one of Europe’s best kept secrets and combine stunning scenery with great weather. During your next Spain holidays you may choose to plan a trekking or walking holiday ranging from scenic rambles in flower filled meadows to long days in the high mountains and back.
Costa Brava is a perfect destination when you choose Spain for holidays, and there are many reasons why it is a very popular among holiday makers. Costa Brava is located in a Catalan province called Girona in North-Eastern Catalonia and the name means the “wild coast”. Apart from its natural beauty and scenic views, it has ideal weather for those who love to enjoy summers as the place also enjoys great temperature throughout the winter. There is plenty for all to enjoy, whether it is the Pyrenees Mountains for hiking or the beautiful beaches for swimming and sunbathing. Reaching the Mediterranean coastline with scenic sandy beaches and rugged and rocky cliffs, the name seems perfectly apt. During your holidays to Spain, you might like to explore the varied terrain, with little private coves which spring up interesting surprises, thanks to their proximity to the Pyrenees. It is rare to find a destination where summer holidays can alternate between a day relaxing on the beach and a day hiking in the mountains.
The rugged beaches are great to explore during a part of your Spain holiday. There are breathtaking views from the mountains and cliffs of Costa Brava, as well as from the beautiful Spain villas on rent that you can stay in. The Costa Brava has an ideal climate for summer holidays as there is little rain in the summer as most of the rainfall happens in spring and autumn. During winters, the Pyrenees transforms into a skiing paradise, being the southern-most skiing holiday destination in Europe. Skiing holidays in Spain sound imaginary, but with ample snow in the Pyrenees and temperatures rarely below zero, skiing could not get any more pleasurable!
Spain is a land rich in history and tradition, there are ancient Cathedrals and chapels just waiting to be discovered, as well as museums, historical villages and imposing castles. So, if you are keen on finding treasures for the eye and mind and explore old customs and traditions, Spain holidays are here to fulfill your dreams. Another advantage is that the vibrant and beautiful city of Barcelona is nearby, with great museums, cultural performances, sports, activities, nightlife and contemporary Barcelona apartments when you need some time off in an urban setting. In the small town of Figueres in the north, there is the Dali Museum, featuring Salvador Dali, a world renowned Spanish surrealist painter. The Dali museum is one of the most popular museums in all of Europe. Much of his great paintings and sculptures are exhibited and the actual building is one of his greatest works of art and another celebration of surrealism.
There is this and so much more culture and history wrapped up in the Costa Brava, along with its breathtaking natural beauty, that makes it a well loved location. With such a wide choice of things to do and days filled with beauty and tranquility, your Spain holidays are bound to be one of your favourite ones. Families with children, backpackers or romantic couples, all find their days full of fun and fall in love with this magical land. Enjoy a beautiful summer holiday to Spain, this year and discover Spain’s “wild coast”!
