Snorkelling

Spending the summer in Spain is an experience you have to live at least once in a lifetime. You've probably got time off and plenty of time to visit places, and you probably want to make plans and get the most out of those days. What's more, thanks to the nice weather, you're almost sure to enjoy a dip in one of the best beaches in the world. For example, would you like to enjoy the atmosphere on the Costa del Sol, go diving on the Costa Brava, discover our fishing villages or hire a boat? And if you love staying active you can try all kinds of water sports. As well as beaches, in Spain there are many options to suit all tastes and pockets. There are popular festivities in summer, like the famous San Fermín or La Tomatina tomato festival. But if you prefer to dance, there are also many world-renowned festivals. And of course, if you love clubbing you shouldn't miss going out at night in Ibiza. At lunchtime you can try a refreshing dish such as our cold soup – gazpacho. And you can make the most of the bars and restaurants that have outdoor terraces. Just click on the image or the text that you want in order to find more information about each one of these plans. What are you going to do this summer?
