Europe is full of amazing countries that you should definitely explore at some point, but if you want our opinion, Spain should always be at the top of your list. Located in the Mediterranean, Spain offers some of the most incredible islands you could possibly imagine, and they all offer something different. There are islands for the party animals amongst you, there are islands for the beachgoers, there are islands for the adventurers, and there are islands for those who want to just relax and find hidden gems. These are the most beautiful islands in Spain that you just need to visit.
With all-around good weather, there’s no doubt about the fact that Tenerife is one of the most popular Spanish islands. Making up one of the volcanic Canary Islands, this rugged island offers everything you could possibly think of. From volcanic black sandy beaches to golden coasts, it’s perfect for families, couples, and party goers alike. The piece de resistance of this island, however, definitely has to be Mount Teide. This dormant volcano offers endless views over the island and is even considered one of the best stargazing spots in the world.
Known as the “White Isle,” there are certainly two sides to this island. Ibiza is perhaps the party capital of Spain and offers some of the biggest clubs and parties in Europe. As the sun sets, the flashing lights come out, and the music starts pumping, and everyone has a good time. However, Ibiza during the day is also a catch. With adorable little fishing villages and even a quirky hippie market, this island has something for everyone. In fact, you can get the best of both worlds! Explore the beauty by day, and explore the bottom of a fish bowl by night…
Although many people get confused between Menorca and Mallorca, it’s fair to say that Menorca is the slightly less touristy cousin. While it may be smaller in comparison, what it lacks in size it makes up for in terms of its culture and its history. Featuring beautiful cobbled streets, beautiful marinas, and beautiful ruins, you won’t be able to take your eyes off this place. Of course, the positives don’t end there. Like with every other Spanish island this country has to offer, Menorca also offers beautiful beaches of unspoiled sand and luscious waters.
If you want to feel as though you’ve been transported to the South American rainforest, then La Gomera has got everything you could possibly need. This Spanish island is famous for the Parque Nacional de Garajonay, which featured 40-square kilometers of impressive trees, shrubbery, and wildlife. The whole island is its very own nature reserve and really does need to be seen to be believed.
Although many people think of mainland Spain when they think of the country, there’s no doubt about the fact that this country also offers impressive islands. In fact, these are just a few of the many that are on offer. Which one will you visit first? It’ll be a hard choice…
