To avoid the heat just head north Spain: San Sebastian, Santander, anywhere in Galicia...

If you are looking for sun & beaches:

1.The classics: Barcelona, Sitges, the Costa Brava, anywhere along the mediterranean coast (Alicante, Denia....) anywhere at the Costa del Sol... or better...

2. Avoid massive destinations as Benidorm and try the coast along the province of Cádiz from Gibraltar to Cádiz itself. You'll find nice coastal villages, not so many tourists, a non overdeveloped landscape and...spaniards.

3. Balearic Islands: a nice choice. Avoid main massive resorts and try in small villages. Rent a car, explore the islands and find your own favourite beach. If looking for nightlife go to Ibiza, if looking for relax go to Menorca. If looking for both go to Mallorca.

It takes 2 to 3 hours by bus from the Costa del Sol to Seville. Consider also the coast of Cádiz and the coast of Huelva. Both are closer to Seville (1 to 2 hours by bus) and not as overexploted as the Costa del Sol.

hello,
I was in Andalucia, last september and visited Malaga, it's a nice city. I was staying in marbella by a friend of mine. I advice you to visit, Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, and the small villages in the moutains, like the most known : Ronda. It's wonderful. I don't Cadiz but I'm sure it's great.
Ale
