This stunning country is also home to the highest number of blue-flag beaches across the globe, so you really have no excuse. We suggest Costa de la Luz. This area is situated in Andalucía, which is close to the Portuguese border. This region is a sun-lover’s paradise with stunning beaches. Costa de la Luz is not as popular when compared to other famous tourist resorts in Spain, which means you can really enjoy the hidden coves, unspoiled beaches, and the perfectly clear turquoise waters.

5. Lively Villages
Southern Spain is classified as one of the traveller’s paradises. It comes with outstanding scenery, great weather, beautiful beaches. Yet one aspect that is frequently overlooked is the stunning towns and whitewashed villages that are scattered along the hillsides of Andalucía. Once fishing and farming villages most of these gems have fallen into disrepair in the last few years, but thanks to the locals many areas have been restored. From whitewashed houses to cobbled and quaint streets, to attractive churches and ruins, these lively villages have become an attraction for visitors and tourists, yet they still manage to maintain their ancient and traditional charm.
