Memories of family holidays in Spain #ad

Whether you are looking for some winter sunshine, or a summer of fun, Spain has plenty to offer families of all ages and sizes, with secluded beaches, historic castles and plenty of adventure.

Here at BritMums we’ve been reminiscing about the lasting memories we’ve created in Spain and invited our readers during a Twitter chat to share their memories of Spain in a Twitter conversation that we had with Visit Spain. (This post is sponsored by Spain.)

Your favourite places in Spain

Spain is a huge country, filled with beautiful and magical places to visit. We asked you where your favourite destinations to visit in Spain were and they spanned a wide range of activities and places, from taking in the pleasure of a crystal clear pool to culture that kids actually enjoy. @dkjrax says the cave of Drach in Porto Cristo, Majorca are ‘Amazing!’ whilst @StephsTwoGirls is longing to take her daughters to Barcelona to experience the gorgeous architecture, bustling friendly environment, beach and delicious food!

Some of our favourite travel bloggers joined in with their suggestions too:

SpainFamilyHolidays memories

You shared some amazing holiday memories through your tweets. We loved looking through all the photos and hearing your stories, from Flashpacking Family‘s little one taking his first steps in Tenerife, Mini Travellers eldest daughter learning to swim in Lanzarote and Are We Nearly There Yet‘s children, boarding their very first cruise ship.

You even made up your own names for the places you visited.

There is plenty to see for sports fans too, with some of the biggest and best football teams in the world, some stunning golf courses, and one the oldest Formula One race tracks in the world.

The Festivals

Spain has lively and passionate culture and is famous for some wonderful traditional festivals, each with a completely unique vibe. Some festivals are celebrated by the whole country, like the Three Kings, or others by individual towns and villages. Definitely check to see if the area you are visiting is celebrating anything during your holiday as these spectacles are not to be missed.

The food and drink

From tasty tapas to superb seafood, sangria to sherry, food and drink in Spain is all about making the most of the best fresh local produce and our readers enjoy trying out what was on offer.

Families missed the food so much that they even tried their hand at recreating Spanish cuisine back home!


With a whole host of attractions as varied as water sports (including whitewater rafting, kayaking, banana boating, waterskiing), endless cycle paths, volcanoes, caves, national parks, family resorts, historic castles and golden sandy beaches, your favourite activities have got us longing for some sun.

Off the beaten track

There are so many beautiful locations to visit in Spain which often get overlooked in favour of more well-known towns and cities. Here are some hidden gems to add to your must-visit list.

@Dianestar17 recommends Coasta del la Luz, whose main town Cadiz is a real gem and often overlooked, whilst @BJsurreyJ recommends Fuengirola with its sun-kissed beach, beautiful square and church up in the hills and the whitewashed village of Mijas.

If visiting somewhere with a bit of history is more your thing, Zena’s Suitcase enjoyed Menorca, where her kids enjoyed exploring the historic ruins. @IamYogaJess loved their trip to Seville last year. They spent hours walking around seeing all the sights and especially the Plaza de Espana.
