But a fundamental question is this. How do you enjoy the best holidays possible? Well, we think that it has a lot to do with the destination you pick, which is why we’re going to be taking a look at some of the best you places and things to do that we can think of for you.
Explore the Wonders of Barcelona
One of the most popular destinations for tourists and holidaymakers, Barcelona is a famous city which offers a lot to visitors. There is a myriad of things to do and experiences to have, which explains why a lot of people choose to come here every year.
However, a lot of people find that they’re entranced by the sheer variety of different places to wander through and explore.
The Port Vell Harbour is a prime example of this, offering numerous bars and restaurants for people to enjoy themselves in, as well as just a lovely atmosphere.
Apart from the main tourist attractions such as the Sagrada Familia church and Gaudi's Parc Guell how about trying out the Montjuic Cable Car, a Barcelona Hop On Hop Off Bus tour or how about an Ice Bar Experience, a perfect place to cool off in the summer months. Or for something really different how about a trip to the Montserrat Monastery with Farm-to-Table Lunch.
However, if sitting and watching the world go by isn’t your style, there are a lot of other things that you can do if you so choose. For example, there’s a wonderful tour bus that goes all around Barcelona, and you can get on and off to suit your needs. Alternatively, there’s a selection of cooking classes all over the city, so if you wanted to learn how to whip up some Spanish cuisine of your own why not learn the authentic way to prepare some of Spain's most famous dishes.
Go Boating Around the Mediterranean
If you’re in Spain and you fancy enjoying yourself in a big way, why not hire out a boat and spend your days by the coast? It’s a unique way to relax and enjoy yourself, but at the same time, it’s also one of the most luxurious ways to enjoy all that Spain has to offer.
There are many different places where you can charter a boat for you, your friends and your family. They come varying in price and features of course - the more that you pay, the higher the level of luxury you’ll be able to enjoy.
How about spending an unforgettable day on a luxury private yacht and go whale and dolphin spotting with tapas and drinks included. Or perhaps boating up the Guadalquivir River to explore the famous city of Seville in Andalucia. If you love the ocean and want to be able to enjoy it, then this is for you.
Naturally, you’ve got quite a few different options when it comes to boating. You can spend your time sailing around the coast, or you can have a lazy day anchored around the harbour.
Whatever your need, there’s a way to manage it, which is probably what makes this such an appealing choice for so many. You’re creating a holiday which is free from people, stress and noise. It can be just as simple as you, the outside world, supplies and no real aim in mind. Just kick back, relax and allow yourself to be lulled away by the motions of the waves.
Go Diving in the Balearic Islands
For a country which is right next to the water, Spain has a suitable number of water-based activities which you can enjoy. For example, they have diving opportunities everywhere, and it’s easy to find yourself all the equipment and training you’d need to explore the seabed of the Mediterranean.
In the height of summer when the water is at its most transparent, you can see up to 30 metres in depth, which gives you the chance to check out some stunning locations while experiencing something entirely new. There’s nothing quite like being underwater in a safe and controlled way, and it’s understandably very appealing.
Why not join a scuba diving class for beginners to explore the crystal clear waters around Ibiza.
With caves and coral reefs being among the available locations for you to explore, there are many varied areas for visitors and divers to experience. The element of natural beauty is prominent here, and you can see things which are free from the corruption of pollution and rubbish here. Spain works hard to keep its coastline and waters in good condition, and this reflects well when you think about the very pure quality it seems to exert.
Visit some of the Best Museums in Europe
Visiting a museum is a lot like going back in time. It’s a thrilling experience, without a doubt. You get to see so much of the local area, and what makes it so appealing. All of the culture and events which are essential to the people who live there are all displayed for you to see, and many people spend their entire day exploring the exhibits.
There are many museums all across Spain, one of the most visited is the world-renowned El Prado Museum in Madrid, full of paintings by the great masters including Valazquez, Vermeer and Rembrandt.
Each Museum in Spain one represents the history and the lives of the people who made the area their home, and you would be wise to see as many as you can. It helps you to gain a new understanding of the area you’re in and what you consider to be unique to that area, as well as the different ways the town/city grew to become what you see today. It’s quite fascinating.
Perfect Summer Holidays
