Unique islands, great beaches

Only about five of these islands receive much tourist traffic, and the largest of these is Tenerife. Another popular one is Lanzarote. La Palma offers much for the tourist trade as does the much smaller Fuerteventura.  

Each island is unique, but they all offer great beaches. The weather here is great year-round since the island chain is located so close to the continent of Africa, so there really is no “tourist season.” The Canaries will be rocking year-round, especially with European visitors since they are so accessible from the European gateways. As the largest island, Tenerife is served by an international airport that services the entire island chain.  

All of the Canaries are served by a variety of hotel properties. From full service luxury resorts to smaller “bed and breakfast” type facilities, it is not difficult to find something to suit your budget if you are somewhat flexible in your scheduling.  

As for things to do in the Canary Islands, clearly the biggest draw is the beaches. For that reason, water activities abound, including windsurfing, snorkelling, diving and other water-based pursuits. The Canary Islands are very popular with families and many of its resorts will cater specifically to the family trade with beach front properties, along with specialised children’s programmes that leave mum and dad free to enjoy some of the beach amenities on their own.  

For the land lover, there is also much to do in the Canary Islands. On the island of Tenerife especially there is no limit to the number of eateries one could sample. There are restaurants to suit every taste and budget, as well as a variety of bars and lounges offering regional libations.  

Nature walks are a popular activity here, as well as hiking through the dense foliage that can be found on these islands, along with the hundreds of volcanoes, sand dunes, acres and acres of rich forests, miles and miles of fields blanketed by such diverse crops as bananas, oranges, tomatoes, and other exotic fruits.  

The Canary Islands are one of the most popular resort areas in this part of the world and certainly worth a visit.
