Brits still rank Spain as their favourite summer holiday destination, according to a recent survey by easyJet.
The European nation scored well in a poll of holidaymakers, which named three Spanish resorts among their top five vacation favourites.
Malaga, Alicante and Palma de Mallorca were all included in the list, while the city of Barcelona was also present, showing that Brits love culture just as much as sunny, sandy beaches.
Faro made up the fifth of the quintet and the air carrier noted that its appeal to golfers helped prise the Portuguese town into the list ahead of another Spanish destination.
“The sandy shores, blue seas and promise of sunshine keep Brits flocking to Spain year after year for a relaxing summer break,” explained easyJet UK director Paul Simmons.
“With reports of a gloomy UK summer, those who haven’t already booked an escape to the sun shouldn’t despair as easyJet still has many affordable fares available to exciting destinations across Europe.”
Mr Simmons noted that fights to Spain can be great regardless of whether it is for a short break in the city or a longer family beach holiday.
