    Alongside its cultural heritage Barcelona boasts a stunning beach with up to 2.8 miles of coastline and has been voted the world’s best beach city by National Geographic. The Mediterranean climate means that the city can be enjoyed all year round. If all this does not whet your appetite, you can also take a tour of the famous Nou Camp Stadium and enjoy some traditional tapas for a real flavour of Spain.
