Beaches In Spain
Picking the best beaches in Spain is like picking the best women at the Playboy mansion. With beautiful coastlines and majestic beaches, it is hard to pick a handful that stand apart from the rest. The greatest thing that these paradises contain is a vast and versatile amount of activities to satisfy each and every native and tourist alike. However, the following beaches have the extra "Somthin," that make our list of the best beaches that Spain has to offer.
- Cabo de Gata, Almeria. This particular beach possesses the claim to fame that segments of the Indiana Jones movie were filmed there. This is due to the fact that the landscape is more of a desert quality, rather than the traditional beach setting. Finally, there is a massive rock that presents itself in the middle of the water, daring all the crazy idiots to "come hither, take a plunge into the deep."
- Cala de Algaiarens, Menorca. Like the Carbo De Gata, this beach has crazy cliff hangers that tempt the adventurous. However, this beach has more of a secluded aspect to it, making it sparse in terms of visitors, but perfect for the intimate setting. The isolated coves also are conducive for a lovebird's date under the stars.
- Islas Cies, Galicia. This beach is unique in that it has just been opened up as a national park. Therefore, campers will find it to be paradise, but those who prefer hotels will not find it as welcoming. But hey, that is what luxury RVs are for. Just make sure that you get there in the summer, as that is the only time this paradise is open to the public.
- Playa Papagayo, Lanzarote. The "Playa" is the best of both worlds. Just as the ironic term suggests, this place of adventure is great for the sedated and calm tourist, as well as the wild adrenaline junky. Mountain biking and other trails of athletic challenge are integrated throughout this national park.
- Cala Tarida, Ibiza. If you are snorkeler, or a party animal, this would take your vote for one of the best beaches in Spain. All night parties and keg stands are the order of the day here, so bring your drinking hat and "A" game. However, there is also room for privacy behind the enormous sandstone cliffs. As just alluded to, the vast amounts of sea life also make it of the best beaches in Spain for the avid snorkeler.
