Best Places To Work On That Sun Tan

With over 300 days of beautiful, hot sun, Spain natives are no strangers to sunbathing, both on and off their golden beaches! But while you can catch some rays pretty much anywhere in this stunning country, here is a list of the top ten beaches in Spain where you can work on that sun tan, and enjoy some other attractions at the same time:

  1. Cala Llenya is perfect for families with plenty of areas safe for swimming! You and your little ones will love snorkeling in the rocky sections of some of Ibiza’s most beautiful beaches. And if anyone decides they need a break from the sun, there’s plenty of shade in the surrounding pine woods to cool you off.
  2. If you love the city but crave the sand between your toes, then La Concha is the beach for you! This beach has earned its name as the best city beach in Spain, and rightfully so. From designer clothes to local bars with pintxos and Kalimotxo to keep you fueled all day and night, you’ll find time really does go by fast when you’re having fun!
  3. If you’re travelling with a group and need a little something for everyone, then check out La Barrosa in Cadiz. This beach is continually voted as one of the best in Spain by the natives and has over five miles of sandy beach, which gives a lot of opportunity to find something to do. Sporty types will love windsurfing these epic waves and parents looking for a break will appreciate the quiet sand dunes as they wind down the day.
  4. Great for the couple on a romantic getaway or the solo traveler looking for some peace and quiet, Genoveses is the beach you need see. This beach is a hidden retreat, so getting there may take a little GPS work, but once you’re there it’s a paradise for relaxation! Just be prepared for some pink visitors if you’re visiting in Autumn – this beach is home to thousands of flamingos!
  5. Trek to the fishing village of Bolonia to explore the beautiful, natural beach of Playa de Bolonia. This one is the ideal beach for the nature appreciator! With over two miles of shoreline you can find rocky outcrops to complement the sand and surf, making this beach feel pretty wild, which makes sense given the high winds that make wind-surfing a must-have experience while you’re here.
  6. If you’re looking to escape the major tourist attractions, make a stop at Asturias. These beaches offer an emerald green coastline with an active surf scene that won’t be washed out by waves of people. Instead, you can enjoy immediate access to both mountain and sea all in one place without the distracting hymn of conversation!
  7. For the historian, there are treasures to be found in Tamariu, Costa Brava. Despite modernization throughout most of Spain, many of the little fishing villages in this area have held on to their roots. You’ll love exploring these villages and secluded coves along the stunning golden sand that offer more than just what meets the eye!
  8. Looking for a getaway but still want the convenience of nearby amenities? Then look no further than Cala Mesquida! This beach is located in Majorca and is situated in one of the quieter parts of this city so you can enjoy some quiet time without sacrificing any basic needs, like delicious local tapas!
  9. Another ideal family beach, this list wouldn’t be complete without Es Pujols. This beach is located in the little island of Formentera and offers clear, calm waters for you and the little ones to splash and play. And for families with older children, there are plenty of activities to try out, from kayaking to hiking, or even birdwatching!
  10. Last, but certainly not least, Marbella is a go-to beach if you need flexibility to find a little something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a laid-back atmosphere or the excitement of nightlife, this beach has it all! You’ll find music, parties, food, drinks, clear waters, plenty of sunshine and the chance to relax all in one place!
