Glorious sunshine and golden sandy beaches attract many visitors to Spain each year. Mainland Spain has 3 main tourist destinations on the Mediterranean Coast. The Costa Brava(Wild) runs for some 200km from the French border down to Blanes and has a mixture of long sandy beaches and pine tree coves. The busiest resorts are Platja d’Aro, Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar. Further south the Costa Blanca has milder winters thanthe Costa Brava. It stretches between Gandia in the north down to Torrevieja. Benidorm is the coast’s most well known resort. offers Spain holiday rental and Villa rentals. You can rent a private apartment in Costa del Sol directly from your local home owner. The Costa del Sol (Sun)has an average of 300 days sunshine a year and stretches between Malaga and Gibraltar. It offers a full range of holidays from the luxurious and sophisticated resort of Marbella with its swish yacht marina, Puerto Banús, to the busier built-up resorts of Torremolinos and Fuengirola. All 3 Costa’s have quieter beaches and unspoilt fishing villages; it is just a matter of exploring.
