Are you wondering where to go for your summer holiday this year? Do you want to visit Spain but are keen to explore a destination you’ve never been to before? Our suggestions for some of the top Spanish towns could give you some inspiration.


While this might be a well-known tourist spot, there is certainly much more to the city on the Costa del Sol than first meets the eye.

You’ll probably be surprised by just how much culture and history are on offer here, especially if you head to the old district of the city. We’d recommend starting in the Plaza de los Naranjos, where you can admire some ornate architecture before moving on to discover what remains of its Arab fortress.

If you’re something of a culture vulture, check out a few of the quirky museums in Marbella – like the Contemporary Engraving Museum or the Museo del Bonsai, which is dedicated to the art of bonsai and can be found in the Parque Arroyo de la Represa.

Of course, one of the main reasons Marbella has maintained its enduring appeal as a destination for holidays in Spain is its favorable, warm climate and stunning sandy beaches, so you won’t struggle to find somewhere to top up your tan if you’re keen to return home with a healthy glow!

Puerto Pollensa

Have you considered booking a hotel on one of the Balearic Islands? If you’ve always struggled to decide on a destination, try Puerto Pollensa.

This is a charming resort town on Majorca’s northern coast, where you will find amazing, sweeping bays and the rolling slopes of the Tramuntana mountain range.

If you’re after an active break, this is a great place to go, as you can try your hand at numerous water sports on the main beach. Rather stay on dry land? Never fear, there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy, too.

Horse riding, hiking, and cycling are just some of the things you can have a go at if, of course, you can drag yourself away from the beach! Actually, one of the best things to do on a break in Puerto Pollensa is take a horse ride along the sand early in the morning – a wonderful way to begin your day.

Ibiza Town

If you’re looking for something a little more special than a run-of-the-mill summer holiday, Ibiza Town – or Eivissa – could be a good choice.

There are plenty of luxurious places to stay if you’re on your honeymoon and with all the cultural and natural attractions in the area, you’re sure to have a break to remember.

Much of Eivissa’s old town has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, so it’s worth taking the time to climb the hill to its Dalt Vila district and explore. Looking for somewhere to have a romantic meal? Head to Placa de la Vila, where you’ll find some great restaurants

There are three beaches within easy reach of Ibiza Town, but if you’re after some peace and quiet with your loved one, try Es Viver. Here, you can stretch out on the sand or enjoy a drink at one of the many open-air bars along the beach.
