But holidays in Spain are not always, well, in Spain. That’s because there are plenty of outlying islands that are Spanish owned, meaning you can still enjoy the Spanish culture (and sangria) without sticking to the mainland.
Menorca is one such destination. As part of the Balearic archipelago located just off the coast of the mainland, Menorca holidays have got all the hallmarks of Spain except it’s a lot more condensed. But there’s something else too. Unlike its livelier neighbors of Majorca and Ibiza, Menorca is much quieter, and it typically attracts visitors looking for a tranquil break in beautiful surroundings. With gorgeous beaches, pine-fringed bays and sprawling nature reserves, Menorca certainly ticks those two boxes.
Another Spanish-owned destination is the Canary Islands, located just off the west coast of Africa. As the biggest and one of the best-known islands, Tenerife is certainly the most popular - and it’s incredibly versatile too, attracting everyone from clubbers and beach bums to city clickers and hikers. The island is split into regions, and each has its own unique attributes.
Take Atogo for instance. Atogo holidays are based in the south of the island and, being close to the major resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, is one of the most popular locations in Tenerife. But head further north and you’ll find a different ambience completely - one of rugged mountains, quiet coastal villages and wide open spaces.
Wherever you visit ‘in’ Spain, you’ll discover a wonderful range of destinations that are among the finest in Europe. Why not go and find out for yourself.
