Spain - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Spain is a country in Western Europe. It is one of the farthest west in Europe. In fact, if you travel west from the northwestern coast of Spain, you will end up in the Atlantic Ocean. Spain is a peninsula. What is a peninsula? It is a piece of land surrounded on three sides by water. To Spain's north is the Bay of Biscay. To Spain's south is the Mediterranean Sea.
 
2     And where there's water, there are beaches, right? This is true in Spain. Spain has lots of beaches. Many of Spain's beaches are world famous. People from all over the world especially enjoy Spain's southern beaches.
 
3     At Spain's most southern point is a town called Gibraltar. Just 30 miles away is the country of Morocco. Morocco is on the African continent. So what separates Spain from Morocco? It's a thin part of the Mediterranean Sea called the Strait of Gibraltar.
