Time to close the post

Erasmus to Spain goes a long way, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit at least one of these beaches. As I said in the introduction, there is an infinite amount of incredible beaches in Spain that we have not included.

And if you don’t want to leave a lot of money in a hotel, I personally recommend rent an Airbnb.
