Advice on where to go for GAP year

Right so next year is my last year of school. So in 2013 i want to go on a GAP year before i go to University. I have only recently started putting immense thought into it, always assuming that i’d just want to go to England. Butttt, England is probably not ideal for me.

Ideally I want somewhere where it’s possible for me to eat well and exercise. A beach would just overjoy me and good weather is a must. I was looking towards Spain but i can’t find too much information on programs and such. I’d love to be able to do a GAP exchange with a school, where i’d learn their language and get full board/accomodation and a bit of pocket money & free time.

I know i’m asking a lot, but if anyone has any stories of places they stayed where they had a brilliant time i’d love to hear about it. 

If you want you can email me at which i’d really appreciate if you have some good tips and such.

To re cap, good weather, decent living, enjoyable work, free time,  A BEACH?, and exercise yada yada. Thanks for any help 🙂 x
