Puerto Rico, Spain
Puerto Rico is generally suited to families and couples with a preference for a compact, modern, purpose-built destination offering a good range of facilities and vibrant nightlife. Summer attracts younger crowds who are out to live it up and enjoy poolside parties, so don't expect too much sleep and peace in high season. Popular with British and northern Europeans. Those with prams or mobility problems might have difficulty with locations farther up the steep hillsides.

The beach here is a small, gently shelving, man-made cove with fine, light-coloured sand and clear water, packed with rows of loungers; can get crowded; suitable for children. Various water sports on offer. Larger, attractive man-made beach of Amadores, 1 ml NW along the coast, can also get quite crowded. Neither beach has lifeguards, buoys or warning flags.
