Clear blue water by a beach in Spain

Whether your idea of holiday heaven is a culture-filled city break, a laid-back beach holiday or a hedonistic week partying, you'll find what you're looking for in Spain. 

Spain is a firm favourite with British holidaymakers due to its sunny climate, mouth-watering food and range of beautiful beaches - from powdery white sand in Menorca to black sand in Tenerife. And with many flights to Spain taking just two to three hours from the UK, the country is accessible for both weekend mini breaks and longer spells in the sun.

If you are looking for an action-packed city break, consider a flight to Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN), 11 miles to the south of the city, and wander around Barcelona's world-class museums, admire the work of Gaudi and stroll down the tree-lined Las Ramblas. Or, for a break from sightseeing, take a trip to Barcelona's beach, sip Rioja in a buzzing bar or work your way through a tapas menu while drinking beer. Low-cost and charter airlines fly to two other airports near Barcelona - Girona Airport (GRO), 60 miles north of the city and Reus Airport (REU) 65 miles south of the city. There are coaches on offer to Barcelona from both airports.

Alternatively, book a flight to Madrid Barajas Airport (MAD) to explore the county's capital and to enjoy the city's lively nightlife and cultural attractions. Or, hop on a flight to Seville San Pablo Airport (SVQ) for stunning architecture, to explore the winding streets and to take in the world-famous Holy Week Processions over Easter.

Or, why not book a flight to Malaga Airport (AGP) and take in the sights of the cosmopolitan city of Malaga itself, visit the Picasso Museum, and enjoy the warm temperatures while sitting outside a pavement café people watching? Malaga is also a good starting point to explore the whole Costa del Sol region from the holiday resorts of Torremolinos and Fuengirola to the playground of the rich and famous, Marbella.

Similarly, Alicante Airport (ALC) is the gateway to the Costa Blanca, and the fun and sun on offer in resorts such as Benidorm, Torrevieja, Altea and Calpe keep holidaymakers coming back year after year. Alicante City itself is worth a visit too, to flop on its great beaches, spend in the shops and to strut your stuff while on a paseo on the stylish seafront promenade “Paseo de la Explanada”.

If you fancy soaking up some sun, enjoying watersports, and staying in great-value hotels, why not consider a holiday in the Canary Islands? Popular destinations include Tenerife, where two gateways Tenerife South Airport (previously Reina Sofia Airport; TFS) and Tenerife North (previously Los Rodeos; TFN) whisk holidaymakers to an island with great nightlife, entertainment for all of the family and some unspoilt villages in the north.

Other Canary Island hotspots include Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura.  Take a flight to Lanzarote's Arrecife Airport (ACE) to explore the island's moon-like landscape, admire the creations of Cesar Manrique and get your heart pounding by wind surfing, mountain biking or diving. Gran Canaria's Las Palma's Airport (LPA), on the other hand, is the gateway to an island with mountains, rolling dunes and wild nights out. And Fuerteventura Airport (FUE) is the place to head for unspoilt beaches, watersports and a unique volcanic landscape.
 
Or, why not consider a holiday in the Balearic Islands? Flights to Ibiza Airport (IBZ) take holidaymakers to an island famous for its nightlife, but Ibiza also offers resorts suitable for families on a beach break, foodies and shopaholics. Another popular option in the Balearics is Majorca and the island's airport Son Sant Joan (PMI) is just five miles east of the stylish capital city Palma, and is within easy reach of Majorca's beautiful beach resorts.

Menorca is a good option if you are looking for a family holiday and Cala 'n Bosch is a firm family favourite. Mahon Airport (MAH) is the island's gateway and flights take between two and three hours from UK airports.

Other popular Spanish airports include Murcia San Javier Airport (MJV), an airport made popular by the number of low-cost flights that land there and an alternative option for exploring the Costa Blanca; Valencia Airport (VLC), a gateway to explore Spain's third largest city; Almeria Airport (LEI) in Andalucia, a largely unspoilt slice of southern Spain; Bilbao Airport (BIO), in the north of mainland Spain where culture lovers will be in their element exploring attractions such as the Guggenheim Museum; and Oviedo Airport (OVD), the capital of Asturias with a life-sized bronze statue of Woody Allen.
