Spain is home to some of the most stunning and popular major cities that this world has to offer. These major cities are generally quite historic, teeming with monuments, history and culture. While these destinations are on millions of bucket lists for a reason, this is just the beginning of what Spain has to offer. No one who travels to Spain should miss the country’s spectacular beaches as well. There are hundreds of miles of coastline that offer an array of sandy destinations. Whether you are seeking an isolated shoreline or ready to get down to the pulsing beats of bass at the urban party beaches. The choice is yours. Pristine Agency invites you to take a closer look at 3 of Spain’s best beaches.
The Ria de Vigo in the northwest region of Galicia is known as the Galician Caribbean. There are three islands here known as the Illas Cies. They lie partially exposed to the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and the other side is along the tranquil river. It leaves your options opened with either craggy seaside cliffs, with crashing waves, or stunning and pristine peaceful beach. It’s the best of both worlds so to speak. The islands can be reached by ferry from the main town of Vigo and are a nature preserve so they remain virtually undeveloped.
We all know that if we want they major beach party destination to head to Ibiza. If you want to experience the island without the party vibe head over to the more tranquil destination of Formentera. The best beach here is Playa de Ses Illetes. This beach is full of beautiful white sands that are accented by those perfect turquoise waves. You won’t find all the swanky beach clubs and lounges that Ibiza has to offer, but you will still find plenty of beach bars and restaurants.
San Sebastian is a breathtaking location. The beach of La Concha has an almost surreal feel as you have the juxtaposition of the city scape backed by the hilly landscape, and fronted by the beautiful beach. La Concha is sprawled along 130 feet of a crescent shape along the Bay of La Concha. The beach is the top urban beach of Spain, and can be quite crowded especially during peak tourist season, or the heat of summer when the locals hit the shore to cool off. This is a perfect beach destination for those that are seeking a little sand and surf and a charming city to explore.
The towns that are located near these beaches will leave you in awe with their splendor. They might be a bit smaller, but they offer no less history and culture than the cities for which Spain is most well-known. Take time to see the smaller and more peaceful side of Spain.
