The most beautiful coastal towns in Spain

When we plan vacations or summer getaways, we always look for destinations with beaches where we can escape the high temperatures. However, if the only attraction of the destination is a question is the beach, you may end up getting tired in the end. And the ideal thing is that the place you choose to spend your holidays offers something more than sandy areas, no matter how beautiful they are.

Luckily, our coast is full of coastal towns that, in addition to being surrounded by beautiful beaches, have a special charm. Today we are going to tell you about some of the most beautiful in Spain . Would you like to join us?

Llanes, Asturias

We are going to start our tour of the most beautiful coastal towns in Spain in Asturias. Here is Llanes, a beautiful town whose old town has been declared a Historic-Artistic Site. In addition to spectacular landscapes, this town offers samples of religious, military and civil architecture that are worth visiting.

Cadaqués, Girona

From Asturias we moved to Catalonia, specifically to the province of Girona. Beyond the beaches and coves that you can find here, the Costa Brava offers really beautiful towns. One of the most beautiful is Cadaqués, which is located in Cap de Creus , the southernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula. A rocky coastline, beautiful beaches and coves and a beautiful old town with a Mediterranean air are some of its attractions, in addition to the Salvador Dalí House-Museum.
