A holiday to Spain brings plenty of choice. For many it's a classic 'Costa Full English' break, where visitors can be sure of all the comforts of home but with more sun and less reasons to go to bed early. The Costas are etched in the minds of British tourists for the great value and great time they've been providing since holidays abroad became affordable to the masses. And long may it continue!

The resorts along these famous Spanish coasts are set up to cater for every type of holiday group, so families, couples, party-seekers and those after a luxury break can all enjoy the reliably great weather and the shimmering waters of the Med. For others a Spanish holiday means a more authentic experience in the great cities and medieval towns and villages where a history and culture every bit as rich as our own is easy to savour. Wherever you go the food, drink and options for entertainment will be fantastic!
