Expat Advice: Top Destinations to Travel in Spain

Starting a new life abroad is hugely exciting, and Spain is one of the many destinations that expats choose to move to. With an array of cities which each have something unique to offer, it can be easy to find a destination that will suit your lifestyle needs. 

Here are some of the top destinations to travel to in Spain and what they have to offer. 


Alicante is a city situated in the south of Spain. It is a hugely popular destination for expats with thousands already living there. One of the benefits of this is there is less of a culture shock when you move here as you are less likely to stick out as an Expat. With a diverse community, you are sure to meet plenty of other expats so the opportunity to make friends is high. 

The city boasts a beautiful coastline and is home to a number of beaches. Check out this blog post, which highlights the top 15 beaches that you should visit. 


Known for its 19th century architecture and popular tourist attractions, Málaga is a sunny city situated along the Costa Del Sol. Life in Málaga has a lot to offer and cost of living can be low. You may be surprised to know that expat rentals in Málaga are far and wide and monthly rent can be impressively low for a private room. 

As well as proving popular with expats across the globe, Málaga is also a popular destination with tourists. The city is home to some incredible attractions, and you will never be short on things to do with a vast array of museums, shops and local food markets. 


The capital city of Spain is the popular destination of Madrid. The hustle and bustle of this popular city is hugely attractive for expats who love to adventure. Filled with historic buildings and a busy nightlife, expats can also enjoy unique neighbourhoods and a warm climate. Madrid has a lot to offer to its residents, but it is important to note that it is one of the priciest cities to live across Spain. Which is ideal if you like a bit of luxury. 

If you are a football fanatic, then you can make a visit to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium which is the home of Real Madrid. This grand stadium is currently undergoing modernisation and is expected to be finished in 2022. 


Valencia is the third largest city in Spain. The quality of life and cost of living are said to be what makes this city perfect for expats. With cheap housing and an ease of life, Valencia is close to mountainous views and there is plenty for you to do within a short walking distance. 

The city is home to a popular zoo named the Bioparc and there are plenty of museums, dining experiences and architectural buildings for you to enjoy. With so much diverse culture and interesting attractions it is clear to see why so many expats choose to move to Spain each year.
