Anyone who's visited Spain knows that the beaches are breathtaking. Many beaches are ideal for sunbathing fans. Playa de Las Catedrales in Galicia has been well known for the rock formations created by the ocean and a great spot for people to go relax and sunbathe. Gandia located in the Costa Brava consists of several smaller towns with tranquil beaches. Towns vary by their size and many find them hectic. They are most often describing the crowds and traffic when holidays come for those who spend it in a location especially if the location is a popular hot spot for parties.

Tarifa located in the Andalusia region this is a popular area for the younger crowd. This is the best beach for people who regularly sunbathe or partake in other activities on the beach.

Nerja also located in Andalusia has been dubbed as an overpriced haven meaning it's more home to those with money than those who are of middle and lower classes. The area is rich with beautiful homes and pretty beaches from the citizens who live there.

Playa de los Peligros & Playa de la Magdalena both located in Santander the capital of this seldom-explored region of Cantabria situated near Asturias and Basque in the Spanish countryside. Both beaches are closer to the downtown area and beachgoers aim for a more scenic type of environment to watch boats and viewing the mountains. It's great for those who want to relax and take pictures. Sitges is a party town located near Barcelona and being a regular hot spot for the gay and lesbian crowd, but the regular beaches are diverse with different people.

Playa de la Victoria is located in Cadiz and is for those who are more fans of cities than of smaller villages. Ibiza has a lot of beaches in Spain and mainly a haven for the young college crowd who gather there on their breaks from school since they have an active nightlife that is made up of clubs and bars and may not be ideal for those who are not into the party lifestyle. Playa de Silentos in Asturias is great for those who want to hike and take photos with the rugged terrain makes it perfect for hikers and photographers.
