For many visitors to Spain, their goal will be to see the miles and miles of beaches and dine on all day breakfasts. With year-round sunshine, out door living, gorgeous islands, mountains, Moorish castles and bustling resorts, Spain will have something for everyone and it's no surprise that Spain is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Spain has some spectacular architecture and as an old colonial power you will spot that it has been exported to many parts of the world.
Most visitors know about the golden beaches, but volcanic landscapes and lush forests are also on offer, with the Canary Islands offering diverse landscapes and black sand instead of golden.
For myself, Spain was my first holiday destination without parents and for many holidays after Spain was the destination I would return to. Majorca, Estartit and Tenerife were badly behaved, booze sozzled jaunts. Ibiza and Salou a little less. Barcelona has been visited many times, with a couple of those times just been for a night out as it's only a short flight from the UK.
