Visit the Mediterranean
As the Western gatekeeper of the Mediterranean, Spain has long been known for its beautiful beaches and resorts. It is the first of the European countries to border the Mediterranean when journeying east, so it is a natural destination for people from the United States and all over the Americas. Travelers also find a lot of appeal in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean that border Spain on its west coast, above and below Portugal. Northern Spain in particular has been noted for its many surfing opportunities.
