Many holiday plans have been disrupted due to the outbreak of Covid-19. Some of us are also reluctant to travel during these uncertain times. If you’re still looking for a holiday this summer, why not travel somewhere a bit closer to home. Here are 5 overlooked destinations in Spain to relax and switch off.

San Sebastian

Based in the Basque Country, San Sebastian is known for its beautiful coastline and pintxos - a Basque version of tapas which are served on top of crusty bread. Trying the city’s pintxos is a must for visitors, as well as visiting the picturesque La Concha beach.



One of Spain’s hidden treasures, Formentera is located in the Balearic Islands off the East coast of Spain. The island is a great destination for peace and quiet, and is one of the least affected areas from Covid-19.


La Rioja

If you love wine, the region of La Rioja is your perfect destination for wine tours and tastings. The region is home to hundreds of the most popular vineyards in Spain. Logroño, the capital of the region, is a great city for tapas bars on Calle Laurel.



Ibiza is famous for its nightlife, but is less known for its natural beauty. Away from the nightclubs, Ibiza is home to little fishing villages and quiet beaches. If you’re looking to relax and rejuvenate, Ibiza’s scenic beaches are a solid choice!



Alicante is known for its port and beautiful mount Benacantil backdrop. The Santa Barbara castle sits high above the city on top of mount Benacantil and is a must-see for visitors.
