Popular Destinations in The Canary Islands

Gran Canaria

This island has received a UNESCO honour, and its macronesian flora and dense forest makes it the perfect destination to get lost in the wildlife.

It is also a hub for health and wellness, with many believing the climate is the perfect catalyst for recovery.

With over 60km of beaches, it is filled with quaint and gorgeous seaside towns, where you can sunbathe on the sand, or get involved in some watersports !

Tenerife

The most popular island, Tenerife is great for a vibrant and fun filled holiday in the sun.

Visit the Teide National Park and marvel at the beautiful volcano, Mount Teide. The volcano means most of the beaches are filled with lovely black sand and clear waters, perfect for relaxing on, and a great backdrop for a holiday photo.

Lanzarote

Drink wine on the beach in Lanzarote. Famed for its gorgeous wineries rolling brown hills, and volcanic landscape, you can take a camel ride to trot along the terrain, or simply hike along this UNESCO heritage site.

Many come to Lanzarote for the vibrant party scene and sunny beaches, but the island has a lot more to offer !

Fuerteventura

Bask in 150km of beachfront in Fuerteventura. Known for its gorgeous cheeses, be sure to sample the local cuisine, full of fresh and local flavours.

With waves up to two metres, Fuerteventura is popular for Windsurfing and other watersports.

Fuerteventura is home to the famous Corralejo Natural Park, which hosts wide expanses of golden sand, seemingly endless, and filled with amazing wildlife.

La Palma

Stargaze on the beach in La Palma. Grab a prime spot of sand in the morning and stay there till sundown !

Due to the limited pollution on The Canary Islands, you’ll be able to see every star, crystal clear, making it an astrology lover’s paradise.

La Palma trails take you through the lush, green vegetation and stunning waterfalls of Los Tilos Forest, or go the Volcano route, which is highly regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful hikes, and give yourself a view of the whole island.

La Palma also boasts incredible salt pans, where you can see salt being extracted and then buy it locally on the island.

Travel Risks in The Canary Islands

Crime rates in Spain and The Canary Islands are low, but the most common is theft. This can be by pickpockets or directly from your hotel room. Make sure you keep all of your valuables inside a safe, especially your travel documents and passports.

Beware of thieves using forms of distraction such as asking for directions, and be mindful of your belongings at all times.

Thieves have also been known to pose as police officers as a means to steal your personal documents.

Always ask to see credentials before handing anything over, and only show them your passport after you have checked their credentials.

There is an increased risk of Natural Catastrophe such as earthquakes in The Canary Islands, due to its location and amount of volcanic activity.
