The perfect Spain for you if you're a sailor
Is the sea the centre of your life and you never want to be far from it? Would you be happy to spend your life in a maritime atmosphere, exploring seaside towns? Do you like watching the hustle and bustle of harbours and fish markets, and trying all the fish and seafood you can get? Does your ideal photo have a cliff in the background? You were born to be a sailor.
Get a map of Spain and pick a spot at random on its nearly 8,000 kilometres of coastline. Wherever it is, it will be close to an attractive coastal town or village that can offer you a unique experience beside the sea. Ports and fishing towns, lush Mediterranean scenery, beaches next to mountains… You can enjoy the fish and seafood-based cuisine of the Bay of Biscay in Asturian villages like Cudillero and Lastres, or in Cantabria, be sure to visit Castro Urdiales and San Vicente de la Barquera. The arrantzales (fishermen) of Getaria and Bermeo in the Basque Country will show you how well one can live in these coastal villages. In Galicia you can get a taste of maritime life visiting the region’s lighthouses, enjoying the atmosphere of the fish auctions, or trying your hand at shellfish harvesting. If you prefer calmer seas, the Mediterranean is waiting in Calella de Palafrugell, in Girona. There you can experience another way of life, in the fishing village where Joan Manuel Serrat wrote his famous song "Mediterráneo". Spain offers so many destinations for fun at the seaside, unforgettable scenery and culture, and delicious cuisine.Share it with your family and friends on social networks with the hashtag #Spainforyou.
