Head to a secluded beach

Spain is known for its stunning beaches that attract thousands of tourists every day.

However, you can escape the crowds and go to quiet, secluded beaches that are easily accessible.

Menorca can be reached on foot, on horseback or by bicycle. Other beaches include Cala Sardinia with its white pebbles and Cala Bramant with its wild and secret coves.

Dive into an underwater museum

The Atlantic Museum of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands is the first underwater museum in Europe. There are many sculptures and artificial reefs located at a depth of 12 meters in the water.

However, your dive depends on weather conditions, so go on a sunny day.

You will be surprised to see how much aquatic wildlife has gathered on and around the statues.

Battle with tomatoes

It's time to throw tomatoes at random strangers! La Tomatina is Spain's favorite and most popular festival (or should I say, battle of the tomatoes?).

It is organized on the last Wednesday of August, attracting several locals and tourists.

Although it has no religious significance, it's just a fun way to celebrate life. The afterparties, which last until the early hours of the morning, are well worth the visit.

Visit Portugal from Spain in just 60 seconds

What if you were told that you could travel to Portugal from Spain in just 60 seconds? Does it sound too good to be true?

Well, Limite Zero offers exactly that. It's a zipline that connects Sanlucar de Guadina in Spain to Alcoutim in Portugal.

You will cross the 730-meter line to Portugal at a speed of 80 km/h. Enjoy the hills around you!

Enjoy food cooked on a volcano

At Restaurante el Diablo, you can eat food cooked on an active volcano!

Here you can taste dishes grilled on a volcano in the Timanfaya National Park on the island of Lanzarote.

Since the restaurant is quite close to the volcano, the temperature is bound to be high. It is recommended to bring a fan or a spray bottle.

As TravelWise previously reported, according to recent surveys, Spanish resorts are the most favorite vacation dest inations among British tourists.
