Welcome to the Canaries

The Canary Islands have a rich history and are hugely popular with tourists looking for a sun-soaked escape.

Just off the coast of Morocco and Western Sahara, this Spanish archipelago is made up of 7 major islands – each with their own unique personality – so you can be sure that you’ll find the perfect spot for your holiday. From the idyllic stillness of La Palma to all-night raves of Lanzarote and Tenerife, you’ll discover exactly what you’re looking for and so much more.


Action and Adventure

If you love the water, head straight for Fuerteventura. With the longest beaches of any of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is packed with equipment and instructors for every water sport under the sun. If you’re staying for a week or more, sign up for a 3-day diving school course where you can earn a certification. You can also hire equipment for kayaking, jet skiing, surfing or, if you’ve won big at the casino, even charter a yacht.

If fishing is more your thing, visit Fuerteventura in September for the Big Game Fishing Tournament. This is also the perfect time to try out shark fishing, as the season for this runs from September to October.

If you’re hiring equipment for more than a day, make sure the car that you hire is big enough (and has the right fittings) to transfer your gear to and from the beach. Fuerteventura is such a small island that you may not need a car every single day – plan ahead and work out whether it makes more sense to rent a car for only part of your trip.

La Palma

Natural beauty, no need for a filter

La Palma is one of the smallest of the main islands, and by far the most beautiful. Perhaps at the core of its beauty is its peacefulness compared with somewhat rowdier neighbours.

If you like greenery, nature and hiking, La Palma is the place to be. The National Park Caldera de Taburiente is a must-see if you’re visiting the island. The terrain is hard work, so it’s not for the faint hearted, but the views are totally worth the effort.

There aren’t many resorts here, and the ones that do exist are a lot quieter than those on the other islands. Unsurprisingly, the night life isn’t as good, but in return you’ll experience the sort of tranquillity that you wouldn’t usually see in this corner of the world.

A touch of wilderness – El Hierro and La Gomera

La Gomera

The travel blogger’s dream

For those looking to broaden their horizons and soak up the culture, La Gomera couldn’t be more perfect. Book a meditation retreat in island wilderness then head to the beach to catch the spectacular sunset.

La Gomera is far quieter than its more popular neighbours and doesn’t rely as much on tourism – don’t expect everyone to have a working level of English, but expect to discover genuine Canary-Islander culture.

There are car hire options at La Gomera’s airport, but it may be more convenient to pick one up at the port on the northeastern side of the island.

El Hierro

Get to see the wood for the trees

At less than 300km squared, El Hierro is tiny. Don’t plan a long holiday here – there isn’t enough to do unless you really, really like hiking in the woods. Instead, start at another nearby island and take the ferry to El Hierro for a day trip.

Its highest point, Pico de Malpaso, literally means “peak of difficult steps". Don’t worry, though – it has a perfectly good road and takes less than an hour to get to from the airport.
