- Spain (Mainland)
Spain has some of the best beaches in the world. For the curious tourist, they will find a whole range of different destinations where you can enjoy them all along the Spanish coast, including everything from large seaside cities to enchanting fishing villages.
Spain has a predominantly warm Mediterranean climate, with dry summers and winters with balanced temperatures. Here you can enjoy more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. It is no surprise, then, that this is one of the warmest parts of Europe.
Due to Spain’s immense geographical diversity however, in the higher parts of the country, the climate can be more harsh, and it is common to see snow from the beginning of winter to the end of spring. When you travel to the north, to the Cantabrian coast, you will again find a mild climate with high rainfall. Winters are mild and in summer temperatures rarely exceed 25ºC.
