Spain has a huge choice of beach resorts to choose from. With charming villages and attractive towns, the Costa Brava boasts spectacular scenery with towering cliffs and sheltered coves.
Further down the east coast, the Costa del Azahar, the "Orange Blossom Coast" stretches from Vinaros to Almanzora with the great port of Valencia in the middle.
The central section of coastline, the Coasta Blanca, has 170 miles or so of silvery-white beaches, Benidorm being its most popular resort.
The Costa del Sol lies in the south, home to yet more beaches and brilliant sunshine. In contrast the northern coastline, the Costa Verde, is largely unspoiled with clean sandy beaches and rocky coves against a backdrop of spectacular mountains.
Beaches and sunshine aside, Spain also has plenty of great cities and towns to explore including Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Madrid, Toledo and Bilbao, all offering an array of sights, art galleries and museums.
Camping in Madrid
The region of Madrid is a one province autonomy, also called Madrid. The mountainous region of Madrid can be divided into two areas: the Sierra, in the north and west of the region, which includes part of Somosierra and Guadarrama; and the central and southern parts, where the area is flatter and forms part of the plateau of La Mancha and La Alcarria. Founded by the Moors in the ninth Century, Madrid is now a modern, vibrant city offering innumerable attractions to the visitor. Its architectural heritage is immense. Some of the oldest parts of Madrid lie around the Puerta del Sol; a good starting place for exploring the city. Full of outdoor restaurants and bars, Plaza Mayor is considered to be one of the finest in Spain, and in summer becomes an outdoor theatre and music stage. The city also has a large number of parks and gardens, among them el Retiro, the Botanical Gardens, the Parque del Oeste and the Casa de Campo; and numerous museums and art galleries. Outside the capital, the Sierra de Madrid is ideal for winter sports and the beautiful town of Aranjuez, home to the Royal Palace and glorious gardens, is a popular retreat from the city.
