Why Spain Is The Place To Be

Only a short flight by budget airline from the UK, Spain is a convenient and good value holiday destination that could be perfect for your holiday break. Alcudia holidays can be a great option for families who want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Spainís more touristy hot spots.

Located on the north coast of Majorca, Alcudia is a comparably quiet resort that benefits from a picturesque charm of its own. With its original old town still intact, Alcudia is a refreshing change from the high-rise tourist hubs that can be found elsewhere.

Featuring a beautiful bay with clean sands and safe, shallow waters, holidays in Alcudia allow families to spend time together enjoying quieter beaches by day. When night falls, the entertainment is family friendly and wholesome so you can relax, safe in the knowledge that you donít need to worry about little eyes and ears being privy to anything inappropriate.

When you choose easyJet holidays in Alcudia you can fly to Palma in just over two hours, and go on from there with a one-hour transfer to your accommodation. This short, easy journey makes Alcudia a great child-friendly destination, particularly for those with young children who want to keep travel time to a minimum.

Of course, while the flight time is short, Majorca feels a world away from the UK. Enjoying a beautifully warm, but still gentle climate, you can enjoy the sunshine as a family without worrying about the stifling heat and scorching sun of some more far-flung destinations being too much for little ones.

Majorca holidays can offer an amazing variety of 120 beaches and coves, meaning that your family can explore the island to discover your own favourite beaches for both play and relaxation. Whatever you want from a beach, youíll find it on Majorcaís coastline. While the beaches of Alcudia tend to be quieter, Magaluf offers a vibrant, fun beach scene with exciting water sports to try.

For a slice of Spanish culture, the city of Palma has a wealth of history to discover and makes a great day trip away from the beaches. The popular resort of Palma Nova is another amazing Majorcan destination and is just a mere 20 minute transfer from the airport in the city of Palma.

Combining Palma and Palma Nova makes for a great city and beach break where you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Spend days relaxing or enjoying the water sports on the beachfront, or getting a culture fix with a spot of sightseeing around the old town.

With such a short flight time, Majorca isnít a destination that necessarily needs two weeks to do it justice. You can enjoy a taste of Majorca in a long weekend, making it the perfect option for those who may be feeling in need of a little mini break to refresh themselves.

Those who donít fancy Majorca this year could consider another popular Spanish destination that combines both city and beach. Barcelona is a city destination that offers the best of both worlds. One of Spainís most bustling and interesting cities, Barcelona also boasts a stretch of sandy beach looking out over the Mediterranean.

Featuring the magical architecture of Antoni Gaudi, the winding labyrinth of the Gothic Quarter and the Picasso museum, Barcelona is a paradise for those who love art and culture.

Visitors to the city can also enjoy a beachfront stroll, a seafood feast overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean waters and a cool beachfront bar scene.

The beauty of Spain is that it offers holidays to suit everyone. From families with young children to couples wanting a relaxing beach break, or groups looking for sightseeing and sangria, this short hop from the UK is the perfect destination for all holidaymakers and mini-breakers.
