Holidays are the ideal moment to do different things and open up to new experiences. We, Hidden in Spain, want to show you some of the best holiday destinations in Spain to combine adventure, excitement and of course … water!


Where to practice different water sports during your customized holidays in Spain


Surf, windsurf & kitesurf

Breaking the waves, flying over the sea and playing with the wind are just some of the incredible sensations you can experiment with these sports. Although you can practice them in many different beaches of Spain, the Atlantic coast of northern Spain offers some of the best surfing beaches.

One of the most famous one is Mundaka in Vizcaya (Basque Country), considered by many the beach where the best waves in Europe are and a benchmark among professionals in this sport.

Another destination of great appeal to conquer the waves is El Palmar, Cadiz, ideal for surfers of all levels. Here, after releasing adrenaline you can relax eating in one of the beach bars or watch the colors of the sunset on the Mediterranean.

In the Canary Islands you can find a great friend to practice these sports: the wind. Butihondo in Fuerteventura, Playa de Vargas in Gran Canaria, Playa Honda in Lanzarote or Playa Medano in Tenerife are some of the best places.



If your idea is to dive and explore the seabed, the Medes Islands, on the Costa Brava, is a privileged place for it. It represents one of the most important reserves of marine flora and fauna of the Mediterranean.

Another destination not to be missed are the Cies Islands, with paradisiacal pristine beaches, where you will discover an ecosystem that will certainly impress you.

Whether you’re already an expert or an amateur, there are many schools offering courses and different variants of this amazing but, often, unknown sport that, if you dare to discover, will make your holidays in Spain unforgettable.


Canoeing and kayaking

In Spain there is a wide variety of both whitewater and the most perfect quiet rivers to practice different water sports:

If you are adventurous and look for excitement, in the area of the Pyrenees you will find numerous rapids, as the Noguera Pallaresa river.

If you prefer a more relaxed option and enjoy a pleasant walk with little obstacles, we suggest the river Bidasoa in Navarre, with spectacular landscapes, the river Gallego (Aragon) with a stable flow that allows canoeing all year round or the river Sella in Asturias, famous for its annual decline that has become a festival of International Tourist Interest
