Spain has so many beautiful beaches to choose. Whether it's a sandy shore with shallow turquoise waters of the Mediterranean you crave, or the big waves of the Atlantic. And for the third year running, one of its beaches has been crowned the best in Europe.

Spain also officially has the best beach in Europe, according to the 2019's Traveller's Choice awards by the review website TripAdvisor.
 
The list was topped, for the third year running, 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 four beaches in Europe's top 25 list.
 
The only difficulty is deciding which one to visit.
