The Best Spain Beach Resorts:

Spain has a long coastline with many beaches, and it's hard to name the best. The first thing to do is to decide what you are looking for in a beach resort. Is it a party destination? Or is it more of a family destination?

Canary Islands Beach Resorts

While the Canary Islands archipelago are in the Atlantic Ocean, they are such a long way south to within 100 km of the coast of Africa to ensure a yearlong warm climate and ridiculous amounts of sunshine like nearby Morocco. The volcanic string of islands consists of 7 major islands.

For those who prefer a more laid-back vibe, the Balearic Islands are a great choice. Ibiza, Majorca, and Menorca are all famous for their beautiful beaches and turquoise waters. But these islands are more than just beach destinations - they offer a unique culture and history that is worth exploring.

Less than an hours flight from Barcelona, between France and Africa of the Catalonia coast in Eastern Spain, lies the pretty Balearic Islands. There are a number of famous islands and vacation spots, including the party going Ibiza, and the much more laid back Minorca. The larger city of  Palma de Majorca also draws crowds of apartments and is somewhat citified. Otherwise enjoy some of the warmers vacation conditions in Spain outside of the Canary islands, and some stunning clear waters, beaches, and natural settings.

Ibiza All Inclusive Beach Resorts:

Ibiza is a Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is home to the world-famous nightclubs and music festivals, as well as many of the most luxurious hotels on the Mediterranean coast. The island has more than 200 sunny days per year, which makes it an ideal destination for beachgoers looking for some sun.

With some more affordable holiday options available, it is easy to think of Ibiza as only a party island, but there is more to it than that. There are the buzzing nightclubs, but also a surprising number of classier and affordable all-inclusive, and luxury resorts.

Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca

The Costa Del Sol is the perhaps one of the most touristy and most famous regions in Southern Spain. The area is roughly the coastline between Malaga and Gibraltar on the southern tip of Spain. This part of Spain sits against the warmer waters of the Mediterranean to offer a significantly warmer climate to the Atlantic beach resorts. While the warmer year round temperatures and sandy beaches have meant too much development, hoards of tourists, and everlasting parties there are some quality resorts options that are stylish and offer sanctuary. Málaga, Torremolinos, and Nerja are popular destinations. The whole of the Andalusian coastline is often warm, sunny, and sandy like this.

Costa Blanca further north is also sunny with white sands and clear seas in the dry summers. Benidorm and Alicante are popular.

Benidorm All Inclusive Resorts

One of my favorite spots in Spain for beach resorts is the Costa Blanca. This region is located in the southeastern part of the country and is known for its beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant nightlife. If you're looking for a party atmosphere, you can't go wrong with destinations like Benidorm or Alicante.
