Read more about Canaries

With year-round sun, delicious cuisine and well over 500 beaches, it’s no surprise that British holidaymakers continue to flock to the Canary Islands. A flight time of just over 4 hours and great-value hotels also contribute to making the Islands an ever-popular choice for couples.

Beaches
With over 500 beaches dotted around the Canary Islands, it’s not hard to see why people continue to return to their shores. From beaches covered in white sand, such as Costa Calma in Fuerteventura to the volcanic sands at Los Patos beach in Tenerife, there really is a whole palette of beaches to choose from.

Culture
Locals are known for being admirably friendly – especially with tourists - and are usually full of brilliant tips on where to go and what to do so you’ll be kept completely in-the-know. Gran Canaria Pride takes place twice a year with a summer and a winter event while an annual carnival is held in February in the lead up to Ash Wednesday with parades, costumes and live music.

Food & Drink
Canarian cuisine is fresh, simple and full of flavour. For example, you must try mojos, a variety of sauces served with potatoes, meat or fish or enjoy a glass of the sweet Malmsey wine, produced in the La Geria area of Lanzarote.

Nightlife
You’ll find lively nightlife in each of the Canary Islands, although some resorts are more well-known for their party offerings than others. Playa de las Americas in Tenerife, for example, is often referred to as the party haven of the Canaries. You’ll also find chilled-out restaurants and beachfront cocktail bars in most resorts – the perfect way to end a great day in the sun.

Things To Do on Canaries Holidays

Theme Parks
One of the largest waterparks in Europe, Siam Park in Tenerife, promises a fun-filled day for all the family. Get your adrenaline pumping with the 28m-high Tower Power or sit back, relax and take it easy on the Mai Thai Lazy River.

Vibrant Nightlife
If you’re hoping to dance until the early hours, Playa de las Americas in Tenerife has 2 main strips, both lined with bars and clubs including the hugely-popular Linekers Bar. DJs make regular appearances at Tramps Bar, while Murphy’s Irish Pub is great for live music.

Surfing Lessons
Due to their location in southern Europe, each of the Canary Islands offer great surfing opportunities, although Corralejo in Fuerteventura and La Santa in Lanzarote tend to get the bigger waves. Classes are available on most beaches whether you’re a surfing master or want to learn a new skill.
