THE PERFECT DAY TRIP

Relaxing in sunny Spain

Spain is one of the most visited countries not only in Europe, but in the whole world. A famous destination in Spain is Costa Blanca; why is it so special? It is special because Costa Blanca is the place where you find a little bit of everything: sun, white and delicate beaches, amusement parks, modern cities, picturesque villages, scenic landscapes. This is a place where you can spend a perfect holiday. The region of Alicante, the region that hosts Costa Blanca, is also famous for its unique cuisine and festivals: the Bonfire of Saint John and Moros i Cristians are two of the most famous ones. But there is something really unique about Alicante and Costa Blanca: there are a few very intimate places here where you can spend a perfect day trip with your friends and family, far away from the hustle and the bustle of the great cities in remote but very tranquil and peaceful places. One of these places is Tabarca.

Everything about Tabarca

Tabarca is a small island situated just 13 kilometres away from Alicante and a couple of kilometres away from Santa Pola. Tabarca Island is very accessible by boat. The boat trip will be no longer than half an hour and if you have children, you do not need to worry as the boat is very long and it has a glass bottom, they can spend their time enjoying the marine life below. The glass bottom is a very nice element and some tourists choose to have a trip to the Tabarca Island only because they have the opportunity to watch a very coloured show at their feet.  At your arrival on the island, you will discover the fact that it is not a very big one. It does not have any buildings except for a restaurant, which by the way, is not the best one you have ever tried; it would be a nice idea to have a picnic when you visit the island, so prepare a few things from home. The rocky island has a lot of small beaches that you can occupy throughout the day without anyone bothering you, so this is the reason why you should choose Tabarca for a day trip: it is the place where you can spend relaxing time just in the company of your dear ones. The alternative for a crowded modern swimming pool, Tabarca is waiting for you to spend a day in a natural and healthy environment.

Travelling to Spain

Have you chosen Spain as your holiday destination? Well, prepare for a once in a lifetime experience as Spain is a country full of surprises. You can choose from a sunny beach or a high mountain peak; a traditional, charming, white village or a cosmopolitan city; a relaxing day in one of the historical towns or a full of energy party in one of the islands which are renowned for their nightlife. Regardless of what you choose, when you travel to Spain you have to be well prepared so here are some tips.

The peak season

Don’t despair if the boss only gives you the free days you need for your holiday during the peak season. It is a fact, starting with June and finishing with September, Spain is packed with tourists but this doesn’t mean that you have to stress too much. There are a few places not too famous and not too popular, but as beautiful as the well known ones, where you can relax and have a wonderful time. Instead of choosing Ibiza for a seaside destination, go to Menorca or to the coast of Almeria. For a mountain destination, leave the Sierra Nevada for Aragon, Asturias or even the wonderful Cantabria.

Sport lovers

The active tourists, those who choose Spain because it offers them the chance to practice one of the sports they love, should be cautious about bringing their equipment over by air. For example; Air France charges a substantial amount of money for surf boards and bicycles. A better alternative would be to buy everything you need on your arrival in Spain and re sell it when your holiday is over or better still hire the equipment. Either way, there is every possibility that these two alternatives will be more cost effective than bringing your own.

Preparations needed for Spain

The majority of shops in Spain have a special timetable, unique in Europe. They open their doors at 9am and work until 2pm; some of them reopen at 4pm and others at 5pm and they remain open until 8pm or 9pm. This applies from Monday to Friday and then on Saturday the shops will only be open from 9am until 12 noon so if you need to shop on a Saturday get there early! The reason for the long lunch period is the treasured Spanish siesta. The Spanish main meal of the day is lunch and it is surprising how much food they can consume, especially when they have to go back to work afterwards. After they have eaten their lunch they have a nap to refresh themselves. There is also a unique schedule for restaurants. Lunch is usually served between 2pm and at the very latest 4pm. They will not reopen until 8pm so bear this in mind unless you want to be hungry for several hours. Take into account all these details and your holiday will be perfect.

Spain offers so many possibilities and in all its popular regions Club Villamar offers a carefully selected variety of villas tossa de mar , villa spain and villa in pollensa are among the most beautiful destinations for your holidays.
