Experience Spain and its islands and beaches

Spain is a country in southwestern Europe, occupying 85% of the Iberian Peninsula, the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean and 5 sovereign territories in North Africa.


Spanish mainland in the south and east is mainly bordered with the Mediterranean Sea and with Atlantic Ocean west of Strait of Gibraltar. Spain has close to 6,000 km of coast and is surrounded by two seas — the Mediterranean Sea and the Cantabrian Sea — and the Atlantic Ocean.


Spain has a long and famous history of sailing and their islands are perfectly equipped for sea-farers to enjoy today. Sailing in Spain is a unique experience without stress and with many possibilities to enjoy the rich culture, wonderful sunny days, excellent food, and long sandy beaches.


The coastline is very diverse and has a variety of landscapes. There are cliffs and sandy beaches, fertile farmlands, craggy mountains, olive groves, and rocky coves. Each of the coastal regions has its own unique character.
