Spain boasts some of the cleanest and best playas in Europe. The Local gives the lowdown on the top ten.


Spain officially has the most blue-flagged beaches in the world, a title it has held for 31 years in a row.
So whichever coast you choose for your summer holiday you are unlikely to be far from one of the cleanest beaches in Europe.

Spain also officially has the best beach in Europe, according to the 2017's Traveller's Choice awards by the review website TripAdvisor.
The list was topped by La Concha in the gorgeous northern Spanish seaside city of San Sebastian, a beach which has the added bonus of being alongside the best tapas bars in the world.
Overall Spain boasted five beaches in Europe's top 25 list last year. The only difficulty is deciding which one to visit.
