Aah...the wonders of Catalonia. Costa Dorada's endless golden sands on one side, Costa Brava's rugged beauty on the other. And breathtaking Barcelona in the middle.
What a place to come for your holidays, with glorious beaches galore and dazzling sights old and new all around.
Whichever coastal region you plump for, you'll find plenty of things to do in Spain to fill up those precious days in the sun.
Plenty to fo in Spain for the kids
Whether it's building castles out of shining sand, or splashing about in crystal clear warm seas, whooping down a water chute or boogying to the sounds of the local village fiesta, children love Spain, and Spain loves children.
The 'golden coast' is a region that's fizzing with life, bursting with colourful spectacle, bathed in sunshine, lined with silky sands. Is it any wonder it's long been a favourite with Spanish families, many of whom have holiday homes here themselves?
The coastline may be brava (wild) with its rugged Pyrenees backdrop, but there's nothing untamed about the many and varied resorts and villages along its 37-mile span from Blanes right up to the French border.
