Life’s a beach in Spain

SPAIN has once again proved it has some of the best beaches in Europe with no less than five appearing in the top 10.

Puerto Alcudia in Mallorca was the highest ranked beach, coming third, with Benidorm close behind in fifth.

The Canary Islands were well represented, claiming all of the final three slots in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards.

Playa del Ingles in Gran Canaria came in at number eight, followed by Corralejo in Fuerteventura (9) and Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote (10).

Both of the top two beaches were in Turkey, while Bournemouth was the only UK representative to make the cut, ranked fourth.

The annual awards are determined according to ratings given by millions of global travellers in their reviews on the TripAdvisor website.

  1. Playa de La Barrosa, cerca Chiclana de la Frontera debería ser el numero uno.

    Apologies I have just come in from “mi clase de español” and my brain is still wired that way round.
