Coasts & Beaches in Spain

Spain is famed for various beaches. The Spanish seaboard is over 4,000 kilometers long, washed by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic Ocean. Spain has more than three hundred days of sunshine per year, average temperatures being 18° C - 30° C. Its beautiful sunlit beaches receive millions of tourists each year from all over the world.

The Costa Brava coast has been sculpted by the Mediterranean Sea, a rising shoreline which features scenic coves and spectacular beaches. Further south the Mediterranean is a more peaceful sea which laps against the beaches of golden sands in the popular resorts of a number of areas: The Costa Daurada (Golden), Costa del Azahar (Orange Blossom), Costa de Valencia, Costa Blanca (White) or Costa Cálida (Warm).

Three favorite destinations in Andalusia the Costa de Almería, Costa Tropical and Costa del Sol are popular with tourists looking for great beaches, leisure and entertainment facilities, shops and of course the sun and sea.

The Bay of Biscay curls along the northern coast of Spain creating impressive and spectacular stretches of shoreline.
