Costa Dorada, Spain
The Costa Dorada, or Golden Coast, runs from Blanes past the main city, Barcelona, and on south to Tarragona. What makes it one of the best holiday areas in Spain is the fantastic selection of beaches and the beautiful mountain scenery. It has the best of both worlds. Barcelona is found along this stretch of coast and is an unforgettable city. For families, Port Aventura theme park is excellent. Experience the Dragon Khan roller coaster with eight inverted loops. Try out the two track roller coaster Stampida entirely made of wood and get soaked on Tutuki Splash. Hire a car and drive along the beautiful coast to see the ancient Roman city of Tarragona and the pretty fishing villas of Cambrils.
Cape Verde is a small group of ten islands situated in the Atlantic Ocean. The islands are located south of the Canary islands, just off the west coast of Africa.

Relax on the beautiful beaches and enjoy swimming in the fresh clear waters.
