09 Apr Spanish Beaches – how many wave the Blue Flag?
578 Beaches in Spain ☀ wave the Blue Flag and all of them are waiting for Coverontrip travel insurance travellers!
Here at Coverontrip travel insurance we love nothing more than relaxing on a good beach in summer and an old favourite of ours that always delivers the goods are the beaches of Spain.
Spain has a staggering 578 Blue Flag beaches (this is the gold standard of public beaches, which certifies the cleanliness of the water and the surrounding environment). Within these beaches you will find the perfect locations for a honeymoon, an adventure holiday, a foodie or gastronomic holiday or a good old summer family holiday. You’re almost guaranteed a scorchio from dawn till dusk in summer, and speaking of dusk the sunsets are truly sublime from some of the beaches.
Travelling through the beaches of Spain with an eye on the sea, did you know that…
In some places, like Andalucia, summer extends well into September and October. Imagine having a home-from-home in this warm sunny paradise on the south coast of Spain.
Some of our favourite beaches are Playa de los Muertos and Playa de los Genoveses in Almeria. This is a small coastal city in eastern Andalusia where the cinema shakes hands with the sea. Famous Hollywood movies filmed here include Lawrence of Arabia, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and a Fistful of Dollars.
But do you want to map out all the best beaches in Spain to find that perfect place for your summer holiday? Well travellers, look no further than the official guide to find your perfect beach. And whilst you’re planning your summer holiday, don’t forget to buy your travel insurance, to ensure any mishaps are taken care of!
You will find there are many different names for the Spanish coasts, including Blanca, Cálida, de la Luz, Dorada, Brava, da Morte, del Sol, Verde. And of course there are the beautiful islands of the Balearics and the Canary Islands.
And remember, it’s not just the south of Spain that has fantastic beaches. The beaches in the north are just as idyllic. For example La Concha in San Sebastián has a beautiful promenade as well as public artworks by Eduardo Chillida, such as the Comb of the Wind. This is not to mention the good time that can be had of an evening in the Old Quarter during the summer.
The beaches of Spain really do offer something for everyone in the summer. And if you’ve decided to take a summer holiday there, make sure you take out suitable travel insurance!
