Canary Islands (Spain)
The Canary Islands are located southwest of Spain and northwest of Africa, off the coast of Morocco. The four main islands are Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, which enjoy a fantastic climate all year round. With beautiful beaches and a mixture of lively resorts and quaint fishing villages, holidays in the Canary Islands are very popular.
The islands lie close together and travelling between them is easy, due to regular ferries. Tenerife is the largest and most popular island and home to the spectaular Mount Teide volcano. Fun in the sun is guaranteed in the lively resorts, with an energetic atmosphere and stunning beaches.
Gran Canaria’s closeness to the Sahara Desert means that its coastline is covered in rolling sand dunes. The world famous dunes at Maspalomas are spectacular for sunbathing and can be exlored by camel safari.
Fuerteventura boasts the longest and sandiest beaches and attracts sun-seekers in search of the perfect beach holiday, with exciting nightlife. Lanzarote is the smallest and most volcanic island, with a mixture of golden sands and black volcanic beaches. The incredible Fire Mountain is the island’s must see.
For relaxation and partying in islands with a strong Spanish flavour and year round sunshine, the Canary Islands are the place to choose.
