Spain travel guide

4.5
Beaches · Landmarks · Architectural Buildings
A colorful country known for its relaxed lifestyle, vibrant nightlife, excellent food, and world-famous folklore and festivals, Spain boasts a huge number of World Heritage Sites and other spectacular places to visit. It also deserves its reputation as a beach vacation destination; the Western edge of the Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world’s top beaches. But Spain’s geography is so much more than just soft, sandy shores. Its landscapes are as diverse as its people, ranging from lush meadows and snowy mountains to huge marshes and sprawling deserts. The countryside bursts with unspoiled villages of timeless beauty and old-world charm, as well as vast and varied nature preserves.

Ibiza travel guide

Beaches · Nightlife · Bars & Clubs
Famous for its vibrant nightlife and numerous near-perfect beaches, Ibiza also features a rustic countryside few casual visitors ever get to see. Seaside festivals offer a convenient opportunity to soak up lots of local culture, but for a taste of genuine island life try to get away from the overcrowded tourist spots along the most popular sections of the coast. Though for many visitors Ibiza remains synonymous with endless raves on the waterfront, savvier travelers explore the island’s unspoiled northeast, which is covered by thick pine forests and olive groves. Away from the jostling tourist crowds you can experience the island’s lesser-known charms, including quiet wooded trails, secluded bays, and outstanding vineyards.
