Which Canary Island Is Best For You?
Choose Tenerife for a mix of exciting nightlife and serene cliff top views. Take a sunrise hike up the Hills of Masca Valley and expect to see a dramatic panorama, reminiscent of Machu Picchu. Exploring deep into the lava tubes of Cueva del Viento, with 10 miles of passages to uncover it truly is an eye-opening experience. To relax, dine on delicious seafood and local cuisine. Why not treat yourself to a culinary delight at the two Michelin-starred restaurant, M.B. Indulge in Martín Berasategui’s exquisite interpretation of Spanish cuisine at The Ritz-Carlton on the west coast.
Lanzarote, well-known for its breathtaking volcanic landscapes and Timanfaya National Park. Here you’ll find rocky terrain formed through volcanic eruptions hundreds of years ago. Alongside picturesque vineyards to taste the local wine, enjoy the vibrant art and stylish architecture of Céser Manrique. Visit his museum of a home on the island to appreciate paintings and sculptures by the renowned artist.
You will never run out of things to do in Gran Canaria. With 14 microclimates you can expect snow-capped mountains, dense forests, undulating deserts, and sparkling seas. Take in the historic buildings of Las Palmas among the abundance of shops, bars and restaurants where you can sample local delicacies.
Walk along cobblestone streets between idyllic whitewashed villages and hunt out the perfect tapas bar in Fuerteventura. For more intrigue, visit one of the working salt mines or the Antigua Windmill Craft Centre. As this island is the ultimate destination for surfers, grab a board and get out on the breaking waves. After, enjoy locally made Majorero cheese grilled with palm honey.
The Smaller Islands of the Canaries
A trip to the smaller islands of the Canaries is just as beautiful. As a certified astronomy landmark, the island of La Palma is your window to the universe. Lay back under a clear night sky and experience the blanket of stars above. If the ocean is more your thing, El Hierro has over 50 dive sites and with its eco-friendly shores, you are likely to spot a whale swimming by. La Gomera is one for the walking boots. Tranquil forests and rocky monuments are great for exploring during the day.
