Where to stay

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, home to Spain’s highest mountain, fine sandy beaches and some of the archipelago’s most vibrant nightlife. Often referred to as a ‘mini continent’, Gran Canaria is famous for its rocky beaches, sandy dunes and a cosmopolitan capital city; Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Lanzarote’s lunar landscape of dark volcanic sand contrasts with the golden beaches of the coast. Fuerteventura has the most beaches of the Canary Islands, with vast dunes stretching for miles. La Palma is the greenest; its incredible clear skies drawing stargazers from around the world. Nature lovers head to La Gomera and El Hierro for their forest trails.
