There can be nothing better than combining a relaxed holiday on the beach with a tour of historical and cultural attractions. Many cities in Spain offer travelers exactly that option. From Barcelona to the ancient port city of Cadiz, these are the best coastal cities in Spain:
Barcelona is a city with fantastic architecture and atmosphere. Here you cannot miss the Sagrada Familia and other masterpieces of Gaudi, as well as the stunning Gothic district. The city has the beaches of Barceloneta, Sant Sebastia and Nova Ikaria, where you can relax after sightseeing.
The famous futuristic architecture of Valencia is full of tourist attractions. Among them there are the UFO-like City of Arts and Sciences and also an extremely unusual opera house. Near the town there are beaches of the Costa Azahar.
The island of Majorca is washed by the Mediterranean Sea, which makes its capital Palma an excellent resort city. You can not miss the Gothic cathedral and the cobbled streets of the old quarter of Palma, as well as the beach of Ciudad Jardin, located five kilometers from the city center.
The once-humble fishing village of Benidorm has gained popularity due to its spectacular blue flag beaches. Benidorm also boasts a vibrant nightlife and three theme parks.
The capital of Menorca, the relaxed and charming city of Mahon, is a favorite place for family holidays. Guests can visit the Arenal den Castell waterpark or take a ride around the city on the colorful Mahon Express train. It is worth noting the amazing beaches, some of which are inhabited by Mediterranean turtles.
This city on the Costa del Sol has much more to offer than fabulous beaches. In addition to sunbathing, guests can visit one of the stunning Moorish castles or the Orange Square, full of orange trees.
Cheerful people, flamenco and delicious tapas are some of the charms of Andalusia. The historic city of Cadiz has it all in large quantities. The beaches of Cadiz and the gentle sea breeze are very good for a relaxing holiday with your family.
The beaches, trendy bars and restaurants of Malaga attract many tourists. The city has many examples of modern architecture, but its background is the majestic citadel on the hill - an important part of the city’s heritage.
This northern Spanish city offers unspoilt beaches and breathtaking landscapes. There is a lot to do: guests can visit the Altamira Cave with prehistoric paintings, wander through the old districts of Santander or try Cantabrian tapas in one of the bistros.
10. Santa Cruz de Tenerife
The capital of Tenerife is full of charisma. There are colorful buildings and intriguing monuments, as well as an annual carnival that can compete in scale with the carnival in Rio. A city break is a fantastic combination of relaxing on the beach and sightseeing.
