Like Portugal and Greece, Spain is a perennial favourite holiday destination for us Brits. From its sunny cities such as Barcelona and Seville, to its capital Madrid, there are lots of holiday destinations in Spain that are perfect for a cultural city break. If it's beaches you want, head south to the sun-baked shores of Marbella.
The country is home to various island groups, too. The Balearics, consisting of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and lesser-visited Formentera, are perfect holiday choices. Ibiza may have a rowdy reputation, but in reality the island has a much more serene side and Dalt Vila, its hilltop old town, is beautiful.
And Mallorca may be a more popular choice, but Menorca is just as captivating, with its charming port towns and rural retreats – we love Villa Le Blanc Gran Meliá on the Santo Tomàs seafront.
Over in the volcanic Canary Islands, there are more sunny Spanish holiday destinations to choose from, including old favourites Lanzarote and Tenerife, the latter of which has a dream hotel for foodies in the form of the Ritz-Carlton Abama.
And in the heart of Andalucia, Hacienda de San Rafael is the perfect base if you're hoping to explore Seville and its imposing Gothic cathedral.
Read on for the best destinations in Spain for this year's summer holiday.
