Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Luxury and adventure aren’t mutually exclusive when it comes to a family holiday.  We think that Spain is the best destination to give you the perfect balance of both worlds.

Here, we have three of the best holidays in Spain that perfectly combine the best of luxury and adventure for your next family holiday:

7 beach beauties Spain

Adventure found in Spain

  1. Visiting the Best Beaches of Spain

Spain boasts some of the most beautiful spots for sunbathing, with pristine beaches and its gorgeous sunny climate. Perfect for an afternoon or two relaxing in luxury, beaches like Calas del Pino in the Costal del Sol boasts a number of hidden coves for the kids to explore or water sports and snorkeling for the whole family to get involved with.

Or alternatively, you can just relax in the sun. Grab a cocktail and a great book as the kids paddle in the sea! What could be more luxurious than that?

  1. A Camping Holiday Like No Other

Getting closer to nature is a key part of a camping holiday. However, this doesn’t always mean pitching up a tent and sacrificing on luxury. How about a few nights in a comfortable lodge or a mobile holiday home that’s kitted out with all the essentials and more? And staying in a holiday parc with restaurants, bars, pools, waterslides, zip wires and loads of other activities suitable for every member of the family!

With many locations like that that are near to all the best cities and towns of Spain, this is a new type of camping holiday that can give you a perfect mix of luxury and adventure.
