Canary Islands: which is your favourite?

We’re all thinking about our next sun holiday and the Canary Islands are proven to be popular with most holiday-makers. If you’re a regular to one particular island just have a scan through to see if another island would suit you better…

Los Gigantes, Tenerife

Tenerife is for the holiday-maker that can’t relax and needs to be exploring the outdoors!  

Tenerife is the largest of the islands so you will never be short of things to do. It’s strongly influenced by the tribal culture of the Guanches, the original inhabitants of the island, which makes it interesting for those wanting to learn more about the history of the island and experience its strong culture. It’s home to Mount Teide, Spain’s tallest peak, which makes this place a dream for outdoor adventurists. Many people also flock to Loro Park to see the various tropical birds and to the Zoo Monkey Park as part of their daily excursions, which is a great day out.

If it’s action packed water parks you want, Siam Park is a Thai themed water park which has already established itself as one of the best in the world. You can choose to lay back and relax on the lazy river or get a fast-paced adrenaline hit on any one of the other 28 rides the park has to offer.

Lanzarote is for the fussy holiday maker that wants variety on their break away!

Lanzarote is the perfect size for exploring the island, one of the main sight-seeing places is Timanfaya National Park which has a vast volcanic landscape and has been the setting for many films including scenes from Star Wars!

Another top place to go is the underground entertainment complex of Jameos Del Agua – a product of famous local artist César Manrique – it’s built with cafés, restaurants and shops underneath a tropical island beach; the person who built it wanted to celebrate the beauty of this island.

With the all year warm weather and stunning beaches, it really is an island for everyone.

Gran Canaria is for the beach lover or sun worshiper!

People typically talk about Gran Canaria and its beaches; it has many beaches that stretch for miles along the coast. You will find beaches like Mogan that face onto picturesque villages or beaches like Anfi del Mar that are covered in white sand and are great for the water-sport-mad-other-half that’s with you.

There are other activities in Gran Canaria that you can try your hand at but as it’s known mostly for being home to the best beaches in the Canaries, it’s a must see if you want to work on that all-important tan.

Fuerteventura is for the disco queens or kings and late night party person!

Like Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura is well known for its beaches as there are 150 of them! Alongside that, the nightlife here is second to none. From quirky seaside carnivals so some top class night clubs, there is so much for you to enjoy.

All the bars and restaurants here cater for the holiday-makers that are looking to stay out that little bit later so a great place to visit if that’s what you’re looking for.
