Amazing spots for your next holiday

Almost any place can be amazing on holidays, but if you really want to enjoy the destination and brag about its idyllic corners on Social Networks, here are some useful tips, so you won’t miss the secret spots and you will be the envy of your Facebook and Instagram friends.

Playa de Muro

Sunbathing on a Balinese bed, listening to the waves, drinking a fruity cocktail, smelling the sea breeze and the delicious paella that is being cooked within a few steps,  palm trees, amazing pool…All these and much more in northern Majorca with one of the most beautiful beaches in this idyllic island, Playa de Muro. Recommendation: avoid the crowds and look for a hotel with direct access to the beach like IBEROSTAR Playa de Muro Village or Playa Garden Selection Hotel & Spa.

Morrojable

Some tapas on the seaside of a charming fishermen town while watching the sunset, having some drinks with friends, having fun, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere…Morrojable is one of the best places to disconnect from the daily routine and enjoy life to the fullest. If you have already booked your hotel in Playa Jandia, you should visit this town, its weekly market and the taverns offering typical Canarian food.  Hotels in the south of Fuerteventura make your stay memorable.

Flecha del Rompido

One of the few unspoiled beaches in Spain, a secret spot where to get lost in summer in the south of Andalusia. This amazing stretch of sandy beach on the seaside is one of the best must-see places in Huelva. You, your beach towel and a great book. What more can you ask for? There are not many hotels in this area, but you can always stay at a high quality Only Adults hotel at affordable prices: Garden Playanatural.

Cala Bendinat

Mallorca is full of secret spots, so we must mention another one: a hidden cove on Calvia’s coast, near two of the most glamorous and exclusive areas in the island. We find a small stretch of white sand surrounded by rocks along the sea, offering us multiple relax options.  We can find a luxury accommodation far from the bustle, where you will be treated like a king: new IBEROSTAR Grand Portals Nous. If you want to indulge yourself, visit this amazing hotel.

Madrid’s Gran Via

A paradise in the heart of the city, a magic spot where everything can happen and adventure, emotion and beauty live together. Gran Via reflects the authentic Madrid: multicultural people, original shops and boutiques, art and shows at the streets, roofs from where to admire the city…Nothing compared to Vincci Capitol hotel, built in an emblematic cinema in Madrid, with themed rooms offering you a memorable holiday.

A walk through the gardens of Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la Cruz

Visiting the gardens of Puerto de la Cruz is one of the most recommended activities for a romantic getaway to Tenerife. The most famous of all, is the Botanical Garden of the city , originally known as “Acclimatisation Garden of La Orotava” and features 4,000 different plant species , where its large collection of palm trees and colourful tropical plants stand out.

Founded around 1790, it offers a journey full of scents and astonishing sceneries, of magical trees with infinite roots that climb towards the sky. It is a unique landscape, perfectly integrated in this area of Tenerife, the beautiful valley of Orotava, where the vegetation is dense and tropical and the fauna is more varied.

Visits to the garden can be made from 9am to 6pm, every day of the year except for the 25th of December, the 1st January and Good Friday. Also, it has a library and a herbarium dedicated to scientific research, where the more curious and interested may visit and learn about the cultivation of tropical plants in these lands.

Sol Parque San Antonio

The garden is situated in the city centre, in Retama Street , so it is possible to visit the garden after a short walk from the hotel or by city bus, if one is staying at a hotel in Puerto de la Cruz.

Another garden located by this coastal city of Tenerife are the gardens of Taoro Park, a place designed to transmit peace, well-being and tranquility to all who venture though its paths. The garden covers an area of 100,000 square metres, next to the most famous Casino of Puerto de la Cruz, and is considered as the green lung of the city.

Taoro Gardens are just 2 km from the old part of town of Puerto de la Cruz and the Martiánez Lakes, on the avenue with the same name and with beautiful views to the whole city. Many are those that consider this garden as the great balcony overlooking Puerto de la Cruz, a space where to disconnect from city life, steps away from everything.

Very close to this large garden, you can find one of the most complete hotels for couples in Puerto de la Cruz. At an excellent price, you can enjoy a double room with views to Mount Teide and the Gardens of Taoro.
