Luxury Spain Holidays

Sun, sangria and siestas

Holidays in Spain have been popular with British holidaymakers for years, and it’s easy to see why. You’ll find a combination of upmarket beach resorts, historic cities, and little towns where you can simply relax. With flight times from two to five hours from London it’s easy to reach, especially for those travelling with children, while its proximity to Africa’s north west coast brings warm weather and almost year-round sunshine.

Spain’s islands bring you beaches, watersports, a fascinating culture, and luxury amenities. Visit the Canary Islands throughout the year and enjoy excellent cuisine, and family friendly beaches that are great for couples too. Lanzarote, Tenerife, and Gran Canaria are the largest islands, with thriving beach resorts full of activities, while La Gomera is perfect for those wanting to enjoy a peaceful break in the sun. Closer to home are Spain’s Balearic Islands, with Majorca’s cosmopolitan capital and 5-star resorts making it a big hit. Alternatively, Ibiza is home to swish resorts and hotels, some of the world’s best bars, and exclusive towns perfect for foodies and those wanting to shop. Mainland Spain is not to be forgotten, with the Costa del Sol bringing everything from pretty villages to large towns full of glam.

Destinations in Spain
Costa Del Sol
The Costa del Sol is home to some of the best-known towns in Spain, from ritzy Marbella to the charming portside resort of Estepona.
Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura is the second-biggest island in the Canaries, stretching from sand-swept Corralejo in the north to wild Jandia Natural Park in the south. A jagged volcanic landscape lies in-between.
Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria stars some of the best-loved beach resorts in Spain, from lively Playa del Ingles to the Sahara-style dunes of Maspalomas. The gorge-scored interior, meanwhile, is ideal for afternoon walks.
Ibiza
Ibiza’s reputation precedes it – this one-time hippie haunt is now a blend of care-free beach towns and daisy-white villages. The pine-backed dunes of Formentera island are just next door, too.
La Gomera
La Gomera might be one of the smallest Canary Islands, but it’s also one of the most scenic. Bright white villages spring up between volcanic black-sand beaches, mountains and valleys.
Lanzarote
Lanzarote is the most easterly island in the Canaries. It balances gold-sand beach resorts like Playa Blanca with UNESCO-listed national parks and volcanic cave systems.
Majorca
Majorca really earns its stripes as the most popular island in the Balearics. Beautiful beach resorts, artists’ retreats, mountain villages and a culture-packed capital city – it offers them all.
Menorca
Menorca is one of the smallest and quietest islands in the Balearics. Sandy coves and lighthouses jigsaw the coastline, sanctuaries and pine forests disappear inland, and there’s a Georgian capital.
Tenerife
Tenerife is full of surprises, looping beach resorts like Los Cristianos around the towering moonscape of Mount Teide National Park. Head north and you’ll find culture-filled towns and vineyard-striped hills.

When to go

One thing’s for sure – Spanish summers are hot. On mainland Spain, summers are long and the rest of the year is pretty sunny too, peaking at 30°C in July and August. The Canaries are a good winter sun destination, with steady mid 20s sunshine for as many as 10 months a year. Over on the Balearics there’s more good news, with similarly hot average temperatures and around 11 hours of sunshine per day.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.

Helen Lippe

I used to live in Spain, so I know there is much more to Andalucía than just the sunny Costa del Sol. You can really get the sense of the region by extending your beach holiday and hiring a car. We've put together an eight-day itinerary showcasing the best of the area, staying each night in a unique historical house known as a Parador. Anything from a former palace to an ancient convent or a medieval castle, these historic buildings offer great locations and plenty of charm alongside modern facilities and fabulous dining.
