The Canary-Isles are just 62 miles west of Morocco and are nationally recognised by Spain. The group of islands consist of Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma and two smaller islands.
Tenerife enjoys a perfect climate, Tenerife in the Canary-Isles might be it. There is markedly little variation in the average temperatures between summer and winter, and there is only very occasional rain. Add to this, landscapes of verdant forests, mountains, deserts, volcanoes, exotic plant and animal life. Spectacular beaches (with black volcanic sand) and you have a true holiday paradise.
Fuerteventura is the ultimate destination for those wanting to get away from civilisation and enjoy a sleepy, sunny holiday. The island’s two main resort towns are Corralejo and Caleta del Fuste. Fuerteventura is easily accessible from the other islands in the archipelago by ferry or air.
Canary-Isles Gran Canaria
The third largest but most developed of the seven islands in the Spanish-administered Gran Canaria. It has been billed as a ‘miniature continent’ because of the variety of climates and landscapes that it offers. It boasts everything from the big city bustle of the capital, Las Palmas, to the serenity of its lush woodlands. The north of the island is humid and lush. It boasts green valleys and volcanic craters, while the south is desert-like, with vast stretches of sandy beach.
The most northeasterly of the Canary-Isles is Lanzarote. It has embraced the tourism boom with a more laid-back feel than the islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Nature is still the biggest attraction on this small volcanic island. It measures only 38 miles (60km) in length and 13 miles (21km) across at its widest point. Lanzarote’s beaches are dramatic, including long stretches of golden sand, some good surf spots, and some rugged, hidden coves.
