Spain Holidays



Spain Holidays – The ultimate sun and sand destination.

Spain is our best-selling destination for very good reason. Resorts cater brilliantly to all ages and every holiday style. You will find everything from mountain village hideaways to lively nightspots in regions like the Costa del Sol and the Costa Brava. There are terrific beaches and attractive family resorts in lesser-known regions like the Costa Dorada and the Costa de la Luz. Fantastic island destinations include peaceful Menorca, legendary Ibiza and ever-popular Majorca. The Canaries offer astonishing scenery superb sandy beaches and year round sunshine. Our Spain holidays include everything from cheap self-catering to 5 star luxury, and invariably offer exceptional value for money.

When to go

For the liveliest nightlife scene it has to be July and August. Resorts are considerably quieter and often cheaper in June and September. Spring is a wonderful time to visit if you wish to have a more active holiday. You can expect lots of warm sunshine and beaches are blissfully quiet. You will find a very peaceful atmosphere as summer runs into autumn. City break favourites like Barcelona and Madrid are very rewarding in winter. Larger resorts on the Costa de Sol and the Costa Blanca also remain attractive in low season. In the Canaries you have complete freedom. Nowhere in Europe offers such reliable year-round holiday sunshine.

The weather in Spain

Spain delivers day after day of idyllic sunbathing weather throughout the peak beach holiday season from June to September. Temperatures are typically in the mid to high 20ºs. Sometimes hotter in July and August. Lovely evening temperatures around 20º. Spring comes early, with regions like the Costa de Almeria and the Costa del Sol enjoying 20º or more by April or May. All the popular beach regions have mild sunny winters. The Canary Islands have warm sunny weather all year round.

Getting the best deal

You should find cheap package holidays to Spain at any time of year but the cheapest deals are usually found outside the summer and Easter school holidays. June and September should be cheaper than peak summer. Terrific bargains in spring and early autumn. An early holiday search will ensure the widest choice of accommodation and the cheapest flights. We find all the best late deals and last-minute holiday offers. Keep an eye on our current best deals, which always feature holidays to Spain.
