A guide to Spain’s main coastal cities


Founded over 2,000 years ago, Valencia is a historic city set on Spain’s south-east coast. The city itself is a blend of old and new with Roman remains standing alongside modern masterpieces such as the vast planetarium, the Hemisfèric. Don’t miss La Lonja, the old silk exchange that has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Away from the centre of the city you obviously have Valencia’s beautiful beaches. Stroll the promenade around the marina and indulge in water-sports, or head further afield to relax on the wide sandy strips just outside of the city. 

Head inland rather than out to the coast and you will find Albufera Natural Park, just 10km away from the city. Here you will find a variety of walking trails through woods and along paddy fields, or you can choose to explore the park by boat at sunset instead. 


Part of the idyllic Costa del Sol in the south of Spain, Malaga is an enduringly popular beach destination for tourists visiting Europe. Those looking for just sun, sea and sand should take transfers from Malaga airport to nearby coastal towns such as Benalmadena and Fuengirola. 

If cultural expeditions are also on the menu for your trip, stick around in Malaga for a few days first. Recent years have seen much renovation for the city which now boasts lively plazas and attractive restaurants in addition to its characterful old town. One of Malaga’s most notable claims to fame is that it was the birthplace of famous painter Pablo Picasso. Hours can be spent exploring his art in the galleries here.
