Best beaches closest to Madrid

Jump to last reply

We are three 25 yr old women planning to go to Spain for 7 days in the last week of August. Have already been to Barcelona so not planning to go there again. Thought of going to Madrid instead. Not too interested in museums though don't mind a few historical and cultural structures/ monuments and experiences. Also we would be using public transport - buses and trains so need places we can easily reach to.

A tentative plan was to spend 2 days in Madrid and do 2 one day trips to Toledo and Segovia. Are both worth it or should we skip one. We have 3 days so maybe one or two days at a good beach. I did look up on Spain but there are soo many places that look interesting that I couldn't really decide where we should go and we don't have time to do them all.

I would really appreciate any help that would give me some clarity.

Thanks
