Island Holidays: The Beauty of Teaching in Spain

Spanish Islands

Holidays on the Spanish Islands are a great benefit to teaching in Spain!

Spain may be a small country but its geographic diversity is astounding!

As an English teacher in Spain you could be teaching in the chilly northern mountains of Catalonia or the warm beachside villages of Andalusia. And some of you may even be lucky enough to land a job teaching English on one of Spain’s many islands. But whether or not you are able to call a Spanish island home, a huge benefit to teaching in Spain is being able to meet friends and family for an island holiday.

Whether you prefer the swimming in the Atlantic Ocean on one of the Canary Islands, or lounging along the Mediterranean Sea in the Balearic Islands, there are a multitude of fantastic flight options available for all budgets. When flying, it’s a great idea to leave your car in airport parking– it makes travel much less stressful. When flying to the islands from Manchester try Manchester Airport Parking for ultimate convenience.

A visit to Tenerife is unique due to its impressive volcano and the gorgeous national park that surrounds it. As one of the world’s most visited national parks, it is a must see while teaching English in Spain.

Balearic Islands

Blue Beach in Ibiza Spain

Ibiza offers beach weather year-round.

Minorca: Offering some of the most stunning views of all of Spain’s islands, Minorca is a great place to go on holiday. Escape for the weekend to one of its gorgeous beaches, or enjoy a romantic night out at Mahon Port, the island’s capital. If you have time, climb Monte Toro for a view worth the hike. You’ll be sure to forget about any stress in your daily life while contemplating the sea.

Ibiza: With its fame for crazy discos and world class DJs, flights to Ibiza are in high demand.
