Be captivated by holidays in the Canary Islands!

Sitting close to the Tropic of Cancer, nearer to western Africa than mainland Europe, the Canary Islands’ climate barely changes, remaining comfortably warm throughout the year. It’s what makes winter sun holidays in the Canary Islands such a great choice. But what’s even better than the temperate weather is that the Canaries’ unique place in the world, and the fact that they owe their existence to volcanic eruptions, have made them islands of amazing natural diversity.

Breathtaking islands where it is forever spring


For instance, you could almost draw a line right along the middle of Tenerife to mark the points where its terrain transforms. In the arid south, where you’ll find a trio of popular resorts including Playa de las Americas, the surrounding landscapes are sparse, sun-baked and dusky brown. Whereas in the north, at resorts such as Puerto de la Cruz, you can get lost in valleys that drift onwards through fields of lush foliage. Whichever direction you head for your holidays in Tenerife, you’ll find something that suits you. In the ever-sunny south, the whitewashed seafood restaurants in Los Cristianos sparkle at the harbour’s edge, the golden beaches in Costa Adeje always prove attractive, whilst Puerto de la Cruz’s peaceful countryside is made all the more beautiful by botanical gardens and a huge zoological park.


Of the various Canary Islands, it’s fair to say that none display their volcanic history more clearly than Lanzarote. The centre of the island is dominated by barren soil and angular rocks of maroon red - taking you as close to Mars as you’ll ever be on Earth.  And yet the outskirts of the island bring you back to civilisation, at the lively bars of Puerto del Carmen and the peaceful old-world charm of Costa Teguise. Whilst a trip to the southern tip at Playa Blanca brings you to a cluster of secluded golden coves surrounded by lava lavished rocks.


The great variety of holidays in the Canary Islands is displayed yet again in Gran Canaria. Here’s an island where your holidays will be radically different depending on which resort you choose, right down to the kind of weather your experience. As an example, Puerto Rico is by far the sunniest resort on the island, so it’s complemented even further by brilliant white beaches that invite you to laze upon them. On the other hand, Playa del Ingles directs its heat to the dance-floor, with hundreds of all-action clubs and bars based here. Although the best option for family all inclusive holidays in the Canary Islands is Playa Taurito, which sits close to a canal-crossed village that couples will love.


The first, and some may say best, island of the archipelago is Fuerteventura. Dating back more than 70 million years, it has the most African influence on its topography, with winds continually whisking sparkling white sands all the way from the Sahara. Such a fine, sandy coastline certainly has great appeal for beach holidays, something you’ll discover at the lengthy shores of Costa Calma and Jandia. Further north, popular Corralejo and Costa Caleta still enjoy all island’s natural delights of sun-kissed beaches and unexplored islands, but they also add a great selection of bars and commercial centres into the mix too.


Whichever resort you choose, one thing’s for certain, having fantastic holidays in the Canary Islands is as reliable as the weather!

You can’t miss these must sees in the Canary Islands!


Being an archipelago with such a dramatic geological history, it makes sense that the majority of essential sights for holidays in the Canary Islands are natural wonders. Starting on the largest and most popular island of Tenerife, its volcanic Mount Teide is the highest peak in all of Spain. A cable car close to its snow-capped peak will reward you with views of dusky hills and tiny villages in the distance. But even just wandering the Teide National Park will set you amongst vistas so dramatic they have been used as a scene-stealers for many famous films.


Perhaps Tenerife’s best beach is the gently curling golden arc at Puerto Colon, just by the same-named marina. Although man-made attractions are abound across the island too, and Siam Park is world famous for placing super fast water plumes and giant dragons in its mystical Thai setting. Family fun continues at the Loro Parque, where the natural habitats of exotic animals have been lovingly recreated to make them feel at home. Adults and children alike enjoy the experience of seeing white tigers, colourful parrots and huge mountain gorillas in relaxed parkland surroundings.


Whereas in Lanzarote, the verdant parkland is replaced by ashen rocks of red, black and brown. A visit to Timanfaya National Park feels like you’ve teleported to an alien world, and its steaming geysers and hot underground tunnels only add to the feeling that the landscape is literally alive with atmosphere. The otherworldly effects of Lanzarote’s volcanic past extend  the caves that house a white-crab infested underground lake at Jameos del Agua, although it must be noted that late modern artist César Manrique helped to aid its accessibility.


As a native of Lanzarote, it seems only Manrique could understand how to sculpt the landscape and enhance it, rather than detracting from it. You’ll notice this even more if you visit his Fundacion César Manrique. Once the artist’s home, it is actually composed of five volcanic lava bubbles with huge windows for viewing the evocative setting outside. But for a break from such arid scenery, you could always visit the Papagayo coastline on the far south of the island. Its secluded coves consist of fine golden sand complimented by views of Fuerteventura on a clear day.


Not that sand will ever be in short supply in Gran Canaria. The eastern winds from the Sahara drift glistening sands across all of the Dunas de Maspalomas – giant dunes that make you feel like you’re in the middle of a sun-baked desert. They’re a haven for sunbathers as there’s acres of space for stretching out and picking a private spot. Sunbathing in the more traditional sense is always available too, such as at the idyllic beach of Playa de los Amadores. This shoreline has been dusted with sugar-coloured white coral sand that leads into the glistening turquoise waters of the Atlantic.


While a visit to the Cueva Pintada takes you right back to the heart of Gran Canaria. Quite literally too, as it’s submerged under the ground of the town that was once the capital for the Guanche people. They were the original natives of the Canary Islands, and the cave reveals colourful paintings that have lasted for more than 2,000 years, although even two millennia do not stretch back as far as the enduring beauty of this region.


Just like Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura boasts a distinctively sandy composition. Indeed, the famous Istmo de la Pared, a 5km isthmus in the south, actually connects an entire part of the island together. Sand is also the main factor in forming the curving shapes of the dunes in the Corralejo Natural Park, a desert-like area that’s even bigger than Gran Canaria’s Dunas de Maspalmoas.


Huge white swirls of sand also form all the way along the island’s eastern coastline, resulting in what are often described as the world’s best beaches. The pick of the bunch is Playa Sotavento, an incredibly flat, open plain of glistening white sand close to the rolling surf of radiant Atlantic waters. And while Fuerteventura’s landscape is particularly arid and brittle, its variety comes in the form of the mountains that dominate the heart and southern tip of the island. A trip to the top of Pico de la Zarza is your best option for taking in a true view of this staggering terrain.

Ideal for families

Los Cristianos and Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife have a relaxed atmosphere and are close to family friendly attractions. Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote has safe, clean beaches and Maspalomas in Gran Canaria is close to a zoo and a fun fair.

Ideal for friends

Lively bars and clubs await in Playa de las Americas in Tenerife. Puerto del Carmen has the biggest choice of nightlife in Lanzarote, and Playa del Ingles in Gran Canaria has great clubs in its commercial centres. Corralejo in Fuerteventura is favoured for its live music scene.
