Some of Europe’s most charming coastal towns and villages can be found in Spain


Spain has nearly 8,000 km of coastline. Along this enormous stretch of land are some of the most charming towns and villages in Europe. If you’re going to plan a tour, it’s a good idea to concentrate on a particular area. Whether the north of the country or the Mediterranean coast, you’ll find quaint towns and villages with narrow streets and lively fishing ports.If you decide to start your trip with a visit to the Atlantic coast, there are some places that are not to be missed.

Muros, Galicia

Muros offers a wide variety of historical and artistic heritage. We recommend following the Paseo de la Marina all the way to the harbour and the fish market. 

Cudillero, Asturias

Cudillero is a village full of brightly coloured “Indiano” houses, built by emigrants returning from the Americas.

Hondarribia, Basque Country

Hondarribia is a medieval fortified town set on a hillside, with Baroque buildings that give it a unique charm. There are also a number of irresistible little spots hidden along the Mediterranean coast.

Cadaqués, Catalonia

Cadaqués was a great source of inspiration for Salvador Dalí. Switch off your phone, wander the whitewashed back streets and enjoy one of the most spectacular towns on the Spanish coast.

Tabarca, Region of Valencia

This islet is barely 45 hectares in size and can only be reached by sea from a few places on the Costa Blanca. It is a beautiful historical setting with around 100 houses inside a fortress.

Mojácar, Andalusia
