SPAIN CANARY ISLANDS
The Canary Islands
Basking in Atlantic waters just off the coast of North Africa and bathed in year-round sunshine, the Canary Islands are a true holiday hotspot. Overlooked by the brooding volcanic slopes of Mount Teide, Tenerife offers much for the visitor, from exotic gold and dark sand beaches to cosmopolitan dining and a fun-loving party atmosphere.
Intriguing volcanic landscapes and dazzling sun-bleached sands attract guests year-round to the dramatic islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, where constant warm winds off the African coast and stunning stretches of remote dunes and sands are a paradise for watersports. Gran Canaria’s dramatic scenery sees wild west-style ravines cascade down mountainous peaks to shifting desert sands fringed by exquisite beaches - a real ‘continent in miniature’.
