Spain’s Best Beaches

Where to find best beach for you in Spain

If you’ve booked a holiday to Spain already, you’re guaranteed a good holiday. It’s packed to the brim with a range of beautiful beaches, great food and friendly people. If it’s a beach holiday you’re looking for, this guide will help you choose which area you should visit to find the best beach for you.

Beaches in Benidorm

If you’re travelling with kids, you’ll need to find somewhere that’s not only going to be safe for them, but also has plenty of things to keep them occupied when they get bored. Benidorm has some fantastic beaches to offer for families. Levante beach on the eastern side of the town is perfect for younger and older children with lifeguards always on duty and entertainment on hand. It is a sand beach and slopes down into the water at a gentle incline. The waters are filled with rafts, floating slides, diving boards and a ‘wet playground’ that will keep kids occupied for hours on end.

beaches in Spain, approriately named Bahia de Rosas

Mallorca beaches

For the younger generation going on cheap holidays to Spain who are looking for somewhere to have fun and indulge in a great offering of water sports, head to Es Trenc in Mallorca. A lot quieter than Cala D’Or, you’ll find the beach, unspoiled due to it being a part of the Es Trenc-Solobrar wetland reserve, nestled on Mallorca’s windiest corner – perfect for windsurfers.

Benacassim beach

Benicassim on the Costa Azahar is again excellent for the young people. It is home to mainland Spain’s biggest beach music scene with the Benacissim aka FIB Heinekin festival taking place there every year. The event usually happens in mid-July and features big bands such as Oasis and Kings of Leon.

Almeria beaches

For a bit of unspoilt luxury with some peace and quiet, head to Genoveses in Almeria. You won’t find a single bar, restaurant or cafĂ© on this gorgeous stretch of beach. It’s a hidden cove where the Spanish tourists retreat and can only be reached by a track perched along the headland from the village of San Jose. As a part of the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, it’s beautifully preserved and home to a huge number of flamingos in the autumn months.
