Spain is one of those places that just doesn’t get old. Year after year it gives you great sunshine, clear blue seas, fresh seafood, plenty of culture and history…need we go on?

However sometimes, it’s hard to see past the sunny resorts you’ve already visited or the beautiful cities you wandered through last year and force yourself to try something new. We’ve put together the perfect guide for people looking for a bit of help – no fuss, no options, just one plan of action.

In whichever capacity you’re visiting Spain, use the one stop wonder we’ve recommended as the centre point of your trip and plan a holiday. Go on, be brave!

The Couples Holiday

Wine Tasting in La Rioja

If you’re looking for somewhere romantic to take your other half, there’s no better plan than heading off for a spot of wine tasting in northern Spain. Surrounded by gorgeous scenery, this region is home to over 500 wineries and the fun doesn’t stop there! The area offers you the chance to ride in a hot air balloon, go horse riding or take a walking tour across the beautiful surroundings.


Family Break – Young Children

Aqualand in the Costa del Sol

Keep the children entertained for hours on end in the biggest waterpark on the Costa del Sol. With slides suitable for the youngest and the oldest of the troop, no one will be bored on this day trip! Aside from the waterpark itself, Torremolinos is home to 6 main beaches which become quieter the further East you head. Lined with great restaurants, there will be no shortage of sea, sun and fun on this holiday!


Family Getaway – Older Children

Surfing in San Sebastian

Keep your older children engaged this holiday by taking them surfing in San Sebastian! Thousands of surfers from all over the world travel to Zurriola Beach to make the most of the waves. Let them learn some skills in the sea, while you sit back and make the most of the sandy shore – or if it takes your fancy, join them in the surf! To satisfy teenage appetites, especially after a day of sporting activities, this area is famous for its gourmet snacks – Pintxos are kings of the tapas in the region’s culinary capital. Relax, swim, surf and dine on a holiday suitable for all the family!


Solo Travelling

Flamenco in Seville

You won’t feel alone once you’ve joined the masses in the heart of Seville – the stamping of heels and the sound of a ‘cante jondo’ epitomises the soul of Southern Spain. Nightly performances bring the culture to life, while the surrounding bars are always bustling with people soaking up the atmosphere. Whether travelling alone, or meeting people along the way, this is a sure fire way to set yourself in the midst of the action and surround yourself with other people enjoying their summer. Counteract the lively evenings with relaxed wanderings around the capital during the day, making sure to visit the Gothic cathedral – the third largest church in the world.


Holidaying with Friends

Magic Fountain of Montjuïc in Barcelona

You might think you’ve visited Barcelona before and seen all there is to see. The question is – have you witnessed the magic of the Montjuic Fountain? If you’re planning a trip to the city with friends, impress them by planning an evening in Montjuic Park. Music, lights and 2,600 litres of water turn an ordinary fountain into a must-see spectacle in the famous city. Located near museums, cultural centres, an artisan village and so much more, this area of Barcelona is jam packed with things to do in the day before the night comes alive – you’ll be surrounded by a buzz of energy and great atmosphere on every corner!
