Experience and enjoy the passion of volleyball in Spain. While it may still not be considered as one of the toughest volleyball destinations in the world, the competitiveness has grown throughout the country in both the men's league (Superliga Masculina) and the women's league (Superliga Femenina). The sport has also been included and improving at the amateur and university level as well.

But with some of the most beautiful white beaches and clear water Spain has to offer, it is no wonder why beach volleyball has become so popular in Spain. Spain hosted the European Universities Beach Volleyball Championships in 2006, 2011, and 2012 mostly due to the beautiful destinations of Valencia, Malaga, and Cordoba.

On a volleyball tour in Spain, you would not only face tough competition in friendly matches, but would get to visit some of the most coveted locations in the country including the capital, Madrid, and the beautiful city of Barcelona. Some featured attractions would include the Royal Palace Court and Palacio de Deportes of Madrid, and Sagrada Familia, Las Ramblas, Mont Juic Castle, and the historical architecture of Antoni Gaudi.
