Spain has an incredible amount of beaches which cover its almost 5,000 km of coastline (4,964 km.) From the Bay of Biscay in the north, heading east to the Atlantic Ocean, down and round to the Mediterranean Sea tiny, rocky coves, fishing villages and large expanses of white, sandy beaches adorn the shore.

There are more than 180 beaches in Spain which are over 2km long but there are some even longer. The Guiness Book of Records has three entries for the three longest beaches in Spain. Playa de Castilla is the first, in Huelva province and measures an unbelievalbe 17 kilometres. Can you imagine the view?

The second one is Playa El Cofete which is in Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, which is nearly 14 km long.

The third is Playa de Nueva Umbria which is 12km long and is also in Huelva in Andalusia.

I find it hard to imagine a beach 2km long let alone 17km in length, that must be a sight worth seeing and also make Huelva, one of the lesser touristy, quieter spots in Andalusia, the south of Spain, worthy of a visit.

So if you’re looking for Spain’s most beautiful and longest beaches you know where to go! Huelva sounds like the best spot on the mainland or Fuerteventura for a visit to one of the Spanish Islands.
