Sun, culture and delicious food – Spain is a great choice for any couple’s honeymoon. From the lively streets of Barcelona to the beautiful beaches, there’s a perfect Spanish spot for any honeymooning couple.
Spain is synonymous for possessing the most beautiful scenery. Offering a variety of mountain ranges for avid climbers, trekkers and explorers; from the Pyrenees to the Picos de Europa to the Sierra Nevada. While Barcelona offers gorgeous sandy beaches, ideal for sunbathing and relaxing and clear blue waters. In addition, the Spanish countryside is rich with green fields, charming plants, trees and lots of wildlife.
History and architecture
Spain is full of rich culture and history, the streets with their age old architecture are a great place to get lost, as Lonely Planet notes:
“Poignantly windswept Roman ruins, cathedrals of rare power and incomparable jewels of Islamic architecture speak of a country where the great civilisations of history have risen, fallen and left behind their indelible mark. More recently, what other country could produce such rebellious and relentlessly creative spirits as Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudí and place them front and centre in public life? Here, grand monuments to the past coexist alongside architectural creations of such daring that it becomes clear Spain’s future will be every bit as original as its past.”
Excitement and indulgence
Spain is known for its warmth, vibrancy and celebratory feel. With dance, music and show all being very prominent aspects of Spanish culture. Go out for dancing in the flamenco and salsa clubs, or enjoy musical shows on the cobbled city streets. Spain is the ultimate honeymoon choice if you’re looking for fun and excitement. Of course, also known for its fiestas and festivals, you can easily plan your trip around some of the exciting activities that occur throughout the year.
Spain also has its fair share of delicious cuisine – the Spanish diet is one that is rich in fine cheeses, meat, vegetables and wine – perfect for couples looking to indulge. Spanish cuisine experiments with a range of flavours, textures, foods, ingredients and cooking styles – spanish tortillas, chorizo drenched in wine, deliciously seasoned vegetables – all washed down with wine, Spain is the place to be if you’re a lover of food and fine dining. Offering Michelin Star restaurants, quaint cafes serving traditional, home-cooked meals and lively tapas bars – every night you can try something new in the lively, warm and inviting Spanish atmosphere.
