Combine a beach holiday with a city break in Spain
Date Posted: 22/05/12
Sun-loving tourists heading to Spain this summer should try to combine their beach holidays with city breaks to truly experience the best that the country has to offer.
Many people go away to relax for a week or two, and Spain's sun and beach market is great for this, but there is a wealth of culture in Spanish cities, as well as plenty of beautiful countryside to explore.
"Why not combine sun and beach holidays in Costa del Sol with a city break in Malaga?" said Enrique Ruiz de Lera, director of the Spanish Tourist Office UK.
"This will be a twin centre proposition, where our message would be 'go to the beach, enjoy the Spanish sunshine, but why not also go into the mountains for a day or visit a museum?'"
There are plenty of wonderful towns and cities in the Costa del Sol, such as Almeria and Marbella. But don't forget that cities such as Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao and Santander are on the coast in northern and eastern Spain, all with great nearby beach resorts.
