Encompassing seven different islands, the Canaries are nothing if not a land of incredible contrasts. Explore the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote and the high peaks of Tenerife, the endless beaches of Fuerteventura and the deserts of Gran Canaria. From black sand beaches to rugged mountains and lively coastal resorts, the most southerly region of Spain never fails to amaze and delight.

The region’s warm climate brings over 300 days of year-round sunshine to these beautiful islands near the African coast. Soak up the sun as you relax on the tranquil beaches, wander along scenic coastal paths, or splash in the hotel pool. As evening falls, enjoy fresh seafood at the restaurants along the marinas, or sip expertly made cocktails at the friendly local bars.

If you love the great outdoors, you’ll be captivated by every single island. Discover the tranquil shores of El Hierro, the forest trails of La Gomera and the lush green landscapes of La Palma on foot, or cross Lanzarote’s lunar landscapes with an exhilarating 4×4 adventure. Learn to kitesurf on the breezy beaches of Fuerteventura, take a camel ride through the dunes of Gran Canaria, or brave the cable car to enjoy the views from Spain’s highest peak, Mount Teide in Tenerife.

For families, there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained on holidays to the Canary Islands. Whether you’re hurtling down thrilling rides at one of the many water parks, or getting close to incredible wildlife at the local animal parks, the children are never far from action-packed fun.

With its gorgeous weather, the Canary Islands are perhaps most popular for their lovely beaches. From the secluded cove of Playa de Papagayo to year-round surf at Playa de Famara, you’ll find something to suit. Whether you love snorkelling, building sandcastles, or simply sunbathing with the company of a good book, the Canaries are a fabulous holiday destination.
