NEW for 2019 - Beachclub holidays to Spain

Spain is a classic holiday destination for good reason. Away from the tourist hot spots, you’ll discover culture, art, history and fabulous food. It’s also a fantastic destination for an active holiday with miles of beaches and warm seas. 


Spain is a vast country with something for everyone, from the lush green mountains and rolling surf of the Atlantic coast in the north, to the sun-bleached villages and beaches of the south and in between, busy cities bursting with fascinating architecture, art and culture. 


We’ve chosen south-east Spain as the base for Mar Menor Beachclub,  it’s the perfect destination for a huge range of activities. The hillsides and mountainous interiors are superb for road cycling and mountain biking, with miles of off-road trails and smooth roads. The warm water and consistent thermal winds have made the region top of the list for sailors as well as providing good conditions for windsurfing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and kitesurfing.

When to visit Spain

Spain is perhaps best known for its Mediterranean coastline, where it’s consistently warm, enjoying hot, dry summers and mild winters. The region of Murcia where our Mar Menor Beachclub is located famously records over 300 days of sunshine a year so is the perfect place to enjoy an active or relaxed holiday in the sunshine. 


July and August are the warmest months with temperatures regularly peaking in the 30’s, with consistent thermal winds providing a cooling breeze.

Flamenco

Culture

The Spanish are famously exuberant and love to party! Barely a week goes by without a fiesta, where people take to the streets to celebrate anything from tomatoes to saints with fokelore, music, food and wine. 


Another great example of Spanish culture is the music and dance of Flamenco. The Flamenco is uniquely Spanish and hails from the regions of Andalusia, Extremadura and Murcia – where you’ll find our brand new beachclub. Popular all over the world, Flamenco is instantly recognisable from the beautiful outfits, singing, guitar playing, dance, hand clapping and distinct vocals.
 

tapas

Eating like a local

Spain is a nation where food is taken seriously and has become something of a culinary powerhouse in recent years, with some of the most inventive food in the world being produced in its many Michelin starred restaurants. 


Your Euro's will go much further if you fill up on the famous Spanish speciality of tapas. Tapas are small portions of food traditionally served up for free with a drink in a bar. Most bars have a speciality of their own, it could be anything from olives to ham to meatballs to squid and Spanish omelette – whatever you get, it's usually delicious. Tapas are rarely free these days but still make a cheap and tasty snack. You may also come across raciones, which are larger plates of tapas – perfect if you’re feeling hungry or as a sharing plate.


When sampling the tapas, it would be a shame not to try some of the country’s excellent wines. Spain has many famous wine producing regions, not least La Rioja and Ribero del Duero. If you’re celebrating, the Spanish equivalent of Champagne is cava, a delicious sparkling wine from the Catalan region.
