Cheap Spain Holidays

The best of Spain on a shoestring

Spain MainAs best I can tell, there are few more archetypal holiday images drifting about the British psyche than that of the warm, welcoming Spanish beach. Technically just a quick plane ride away, Spain might as well be a world away in terms of culture, food, and – most importantly of all – weather. The nearness of this Mediterranean holiday near-paradise is one of its most appealing features.

But Spain is also known for its amenability to cheap holidays. For the price, holidays in Spain are some of the most valuable in Europe. The Iberian peninsula, the Canaries, the Balearic Islands: Spain offers holidays of every tempo, from leisurely sunbathing-and-cocktail based vacations to active, mountaineering excursions – and all points between – and for every budget. So if a cheap, sunny Spanish villa is the simple indulgence you crave this holiday season, look no further: HomeAway's got what you need.

 

Top destinations for cheap holidays in Spain


   

Cheap holidays in Costa Blanca Cheap holidays in Costa Blanca

Spain's White Coast is a classic holiday location for precisely the reason that its array of activities is nearly endless, suitable to every wallet. Long-time hotspot Benidorm is a great holiday base. Families will enjoy tiring themselves out at any of various theme parks; Aqua Natura, for example, whose season begins 24th May, is €16 a ticket for kids, €21 for adults. Groups of friends seeking night life will enjoy the spread of clubs and bars. And everyone will enjoy, and perhaps most of all, the white sands and blue waters – which are of course free. Mellower is Alicante, which boasts beautiful architecture and a long history, with fewer crowds than Benidorm. Torrevieja has unique salt lakes, and many Blue Flag beaches and pristine coves, which can make for a free and unforgettable day trip.

Cheap holidays in Costa del Sol Cheap holidays in Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol and province of Málaga is another time-honoured holiday destination. That its beaches are sublime goes without saying; but it's also home to some of the oldest, most beautiful cities in Europe, and some of Spain's loveliest Moorish architecture. Amateur and professional photographers alike can make a day, if not entire vacation, of exploring and snapping photos here. La Concepción Botanical and Historical garden especially shouldn't be missed for this reason. Also nearby are the otherworldly Nerja caves, which are open to the public (although not particularly wheelchair friendly, given all the stairs inside them). Tickets for adults are €9.00, for children over six €5.00, for seniors €4.50, and children younger than six are free.

Cheap holidays in Barcelona Cheap holidays in Barcelona

The capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is a city whose vivacity and centrality to European history are undeniable. Dotted with the unmistakable works of Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona is also one of the most beautiful European capitals. No tourist should miss a chance to stroll down Las Ramblas, where a colourful array of street musicians, artists and living statues entertain the crowds. Afterwards, jump on a tram and travel to the top of Tibidabo, or indulge in a (window) shopping spree along the Passeig de Gracia. And then, of course, there is the (in)famous Barcelona night life – fancy cheap, strong drinks and dance clubs bumping until morning? This is the place!

Cheap holidays in the Balearic Islands Cheap holidays in the Balearic Islands

Spain's famous archipelago is one of the world's top holiday destinations – mostly, it's true, due to Ibiza, whose reputation as a party Mecca is second to none. But warehouse-sized clubs full of industrially produced bubbles and wobbly 20-somethings in improbable outfits are not all the Balearics have to offer. The four main islands, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera all boast excellent hiking trails, and unforgettable scenery, both coastal and inland, that can easily fill an entire holiday – for much cheaper than a night of drinking and entrance fees! Another Balearic perk: with nearly 14,000 separate rentals available, you will find one to suit your budget.

Cheap holidays in in the Canary Islands Cheap holidays in in the Canary Islands

Landscapes of exquisite natural beauty are found throughout the Canaries, from Lanzarote's Timanfaya National Park, a rugged area of dormant volcanoes, to Fuerteventura's Corralejo Park, an expanse of stunning white dunes. All of the islands offer swimming, sunbathing and a variety of water sports that can be done for free or cheaply. Or consider taking an hour-long ferry ride in a glass-bottomed boat (at about €15 per ticket) over to Isla de los Lobos, which has no permanent habitation, but hours' worth of trails, day facilities, and a picturesque light house on its northern tip.
